Does the ’thanks’ function work properly?
« on: September 22, 2018, 03:25:05 PM »
I have 137 thanks, but when I checked earlier today I had 132. So naturally (forgive me my vanity), I wanted to see what I wrote that was so awesome, but no new thanks were registered.

Could it be that this function slyly puts in a couple of thanks every now and then?

You could try testing it by thanking this post.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

They are displayed in order of your posts, not the thanking of said post, so perhaps some posts you made a while ago. I’d wanted to look into modifying the code to be able to see what/when but have been far too busy.

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

I looked back a couple of months, couldnt see any new ones. Dont think 5 people looked through old threads and thanked mine posts in one day.

The way I understand it is, lets say I was looking for an old fashioned way of making yogurt. And I found a post by Gardener
that he made in 2014. Since I found the post helpful, I thanked it.

But if Gardener looked at his posts from yesterday, he did not receive a thank you on those posts. But his thanks number increased, KWIM?  Again, this is just an example. I have thanked posts from people that I do not even see here at all at this point. The post might have been made when the forum started, but I was not registered at the time.
I am still able to thank the post. People can thank posts from previous years. I hope that I am making sense.  :)
