Koodos for posts!

I have a good idea and I hope I can get some support for this from other forum members and admins.

I was a member of an ATV forum in the recent past, and would like for the site to add one of the features I found to be a very nice addition to their site.

At the bottom of each post there would be a seperate box the width of a normal thread that would reflect members names. There was a "thumbs up" beside the member's name, that gave the viewers of a post the ability to give a "thumbs up", "thanks" or "koodos"... whatever you would like to call it.

I think that this would encourage people to post more insightful and helpful remarks on threads, and give the post reader the chance to give "koodos" to the poster.

I know from personal experience that sometimes you are unsure if people actually read your post and if they did, if they actually found it either informative, helpful, a nice addition, whether it be a picture or a personal experience... whatever it may be.

These "koodos" that people receive from other members, give the member community a chance to show another member that they are valuable asset to the site. This would be a quick way to give "koodos" rather then congesting threads with short notes.

These "koodos" points could actually add to a members vexperience points as well.

I REALLY like this idea and I hope otheras will support this.

Thank you for your votes and comments.

Good idea, I'll support this as I have too seen this elsewhere and it works.

Lets hope it wouldn't stop the humour within the threads though!

Its good to laugh!

Oh...is this regarded as a short note?

I think its a good idea too.

I read a lot of threads but don't always leave comments. It would be good to let the poster know I was there and whether or not it was helpful or not.

I think it is a good idea but it might create a negative feeling for other people. I know there are lot of members here that are very knowledgeable and no doubt an asset to this forum and admiration to many, and I have seen a lot of members including me that express their gratitude. I am sure they know that people do appreciate them because they get a lot of compliments from other member. I think thumbs up and down signs or other will just create so negative atmosphere. Just a thought!

NO, NO, NO... No thumbs down... this was never my intention. Just a thumbs up or perhaps just an icon that says "Koodos"... that was it. This is meant to be a positive thing, not negative.

I like this idea. I have found a lot of useful info on here and a lot of people have different ideas that work in different situations.
