    Yep. the new thanks/like add-on notifies you if someone thanks you for something you posted, or likes something you posted

    The only thing I don't like about it is; We know that we use the two new buttons, and if we keep getting notifications we will soon stop looking at them. If someone does send a PM we won't know until we are bored and see how many Thanks/likes we have. Unless PM's come as a seperate type of notification.

    We've changed the Thanks system to a new product.

    We may tailored it further. I.e. "Thanks for the useful post" "Thanks for the CC"

    PM's show differently in the notification pull down, plus you get an email for a PM

    If we're going to ask for input into this, I vote to not receive them. PM's and Visitor Messegers are fine by me. Can we switch the Likes/Thanks off at all individually? maybe that could be an option if at all possible, then the end user has his/her choice if they want them?

    I do appreciate your trying a new feature.

    As always, Thanks.

    I like it, but as a member who is not all that active my opinion is probably not all that important.
    Thanks Steve

    The new Thanks system (free) does not allow per member notification settings.
    The pro system does http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/vbeco...e&productid=22
    I'll talk with the boss.

    I personally think that the dropdown list you have in the member information is ample for those who like to keep score of there "Thanks/Likes"
    I don't really think there is a need for the notifications.

    The underlying reasons for the changes is the old add-on is unsupported where this new one has tech support.

    Just chatting with Rick, we will likely get the pro version and allow the notifications to be optional.

    Further, we can add custom buttons... Maybe '"Nice Shot" ???

    I think the "Like" button will do Just Fine.

    In January, I will purchase the PRO version of this Add-on, which will allow each member to set their own notifications level. So just put up with it for a couple of weeks, till I get the PRO version.
