    Did I miss something, or has this changed recently?

    Instead of a Like Button, there is now a Like / Thank | Share set of links, and underneath in a full width box is the Likes / Thanks themselves, preceded by a Heart, and at the top of the thread is a Likes / Thanks Tree.

    I don't remember it being like this.

    There are several changes that have been made. Your thank/likes also show up in your notifications which make it look like you have tons of private messages.:eek:

    And I noticed that the Thank button has disappeared from the mu-43 iOS app. :(

    Thought it was just my phone playing up and losing the thanks button. Sadly missed already.

    I like the new approach, but how do I clear 1500 thanked notices? It can't be to visit each One!?!?!

    All you have to do is click on your overall notifications for those one time :smile:

    Did we go from 'thank' to 'like' to 'like/thank'?

    I find the changes clumsy and the layout ugly. Can we agree on either 'like' or 'thank' and change the layout back to the way it was? I suspect that an option to opt out of notifications might be a welcome addition for many too.

    The new changes were necessary because the developer of the old hack we were using isn't updating it anymore, so there are compatibility issues with site updates that are needed for security reasons.

    I think the site mobile app can be updated to work with the new system. Just a matter of time.

    There is no way to opt out of notifications on a per user basis. It is possible to globally disable notifications. I'll continue to evaluate the system and all feedback related to it.

    As RT Panther said a few posts up, you just click the notifications once and it clears.

    I just want to point out, that when using the forum dark style the visibility of the thanks/likes is bad.
