    The Following User Says Thank You to adcdef For This Useful Post:

    Something to put on your list of site improvements - the text of the message:

    The Following User Says Thank You to abcdefg For This Useful Post:

    could sensibly be revised to read:

    The following user says thankyou to abcdefg for this useful post:

    This happens to be correct English, but the reason I suggest it is that, where the user being thanked has a lower-case username (as many do) his name is effectively smaller than the text surrounding it and gets lost. Also, it would look that tiny bit neater and less cluttered. I recommend placing this change in position no #123,327 on your to-do list.

    I Have Seen The Posts From A User On Another Forum, And He Capitalises The First Letter Of Every Single Word.

    It's Very Annoying.

    And a Long time Ago, a former Boss of Mine would capitalise the First letter of apparently Random words in his Sentences. I never Understood that either.

    From my understanding, first letters of every word is capitalised when you have capslock on with the subsequent letters changed to lowercase

    Edit: Not apparently so on this forum

    Anyway, OT, could you please tell me how adding that message to a post is done? I can't find how to do it - thanks.

    Unless something has very recently changed, the "Thank You" is not enclosed in quotation marks.

    To be even more picky, it's "thank you" not "thankyou"

    ^ Only in American spelling checkers. "Thankyou" (one word) is perfectly acceptable - indeed to be preferred - in Australian English, whatever the Yanks may think of it.

    The plugin was written by an American. We got it for free so we are thankful aren't we?

    Sorry for the confusion, Xenedis. Just piggy-backing on Tannin's (<- good apostrophe) suggestion, I was dreaming about something that would get rid of the use of redundant apostrophes. (Example: *apostrophe's*)

    Whao!!!!!!

    Hang on!

    Thank you is one word? In which alternate universe is that?

    "Thank" is a verb
    "You" in a (pro) noun

    So, if you combine them to, "Thankyou", is the result an intransitive verb?

    Eg
    I thankyou.

    But, it can't be intransitive because "Thankyou" implies an object for the verb (YOU)

    Equally, you can't get around that problem by adding the missing object because it becomes doubly-redundant.
    Eg. "I thankyou, Steve" doesn't make sense because 'you' and 'Steve' are both the same object.

    The best you could do would be to say, "Steve, I thank you." but, never, "Steve, I thankyou.", because we are back to the intransive verb problem...

    SO! 'thank you' is NEVER, EVER one word.

    I don't care what an Aussie dictionary says - grammatically, it makes no sense.

    Also, the "thank you" in this sentence, as it is reported speech, MUST be wrapped in quotation marks and preceeded by a comma.

    Also, there should be a semi-colon separating the "thankers" as it is a list proceeded by a full colon.

    So,

    The following user(s) say(s), "Thank you", to Kym, for this useful post:

    Scotty72 (today); Fred (yesterday)

    'to Kym' should be wrapped by commas as it is clearly a sub-clause.
    'today' and 'yesterday' are not capitalized as they are not proper nouns.

    Well, I don't really mind whether it's one or two words. Before reading the above, I would have thought that "thankyou" would be a noun, like, "I got a thankyou note"; while "thank you" is just the usual form of the older verb form, like, "I thank you, Jack".
    Anyway, thAmks.

    No, in your eg. 'thankyou' is an adjective describing the noun (note).

    And, you may not say, "I thank you, Jack" (double object) but, you may say, "Jack, I thank you."

    Agree with Scotty. Thank and You are two words. If you are going to combine them the most logical way would be thank-you! Not Thankyou!
