    The bug has been reported to the developer.
    ATM when not logged in thanks / like lists are not visible. I'll change that again next days...can compare server loads since we have a lot of unregistered visitors..

    I think better to remove thanks and leave like and apply it to threads only.

    Noticed the thank and like bar is now integrated into the same bar as the rest now as per my suggestion on the last page - I really really appreciate that and it looks normal now.

    Thanks!

    If there was only going to be one system then it should be the other way IMO.

    Reason:
    The thanks are also something we don't want to lose since that's been around for a while and it works perfectly. It'd be pointless to start things over with likes.

    Currently Yen's view on this is that most of the software posted here people thank for, but in other areas of the website (e.g. the music thread) you may want to "like" a music video instead. You can't do both though as that's a cheap way to push up thanks/likes much quicker.

    If things were up to me I'd disable likes in every forum section apart from chit chat.
