Many members have noticed that the old "Thanks" button is gone and has been replaced with a new "Thanks" system. There are two reasons for the change: 1) The hack we were using isn't being updated and has compatibility issues with other site security updates, etc. So far we've been able to work around it, but there is a high likelihood that we'll run out of solutions soon. I wanted to move to a new system before being forced into it. 2) Some members have used the new system on other sites (eg, TalkNEX, GetDPI, and others) and specifically requested it because it provides notifications for thanks and the thanks tree. It's basically more fully featured. I do understand that there are people who don't want notifications, but you should know that there are others who do want them. There are some issues with the change: 1) It breaks the ability of our Mu-43 app (for iOS and Android) to use the Thanks system. Eventually our developer will fix this, but I can't give an ETA. 2) Visibility with the dark theme is poor. I may be able to fix this myself and will see what I can do. Some things you may or may not be aware of: 1) There is an app called Tapatalk (for iOS and Android) which does work with the new thanks system. I personally prefer this app to the dedicated site app. However, Tapatalk is not free (price depends on version which you get). 2) Some members were not aware that you can visit the site on an iPod without using our app. Ie, using the browser (Safari) as you would do from a desktop. The thanks system works fine if you browse that way. With regards to thanks notifications, there is no way for me to make that a user configurable option. I can turn off notifications for everyone, so if they are very annoying, let me know. However, give it a chance before you weigh in, because the notifications might grow on you. I'm a member at GetDPI, and at first I found the notifications annoying. On the other hand, if you post a photo and no one thanks it or replies in any way until two weeks later, you won't even know that it happened without a notification, and in that setting it's kind of nice to get the notification that someone finally appreciated your post. Feel free to weigh in on the changes.
