    Can I suggest that, a post shouldn't be allowed to be sent if the word 'thanks', 'thx', 'like' or any string similar exist in it and the post length is less than 12 characters.

    That's actually a nice suggestion Abry. I wonder if there's a mod for that in VB.

    So you are asking that any posts under 12 characters which consists of thanks, thx, like or such is banned?

    This is available as standard in vB without a mod. It should be listed in post settings somewhere :)

    I just don't think it's worth the effort for the reporter and the mod especially since this can be done already by an automated system. It doesn't need a rational mind to make such deduction. Not only that, but it also takes up space as another post in the reports log.

    Here's a scenario; a new [release] thread with over 10 'thx great work~~!' posts. If you were a mod, would you bother sending all of them a warning message that next time they should use the like feature instead? Of course you would do, that's your job, but you would also feel that what you did was such a waste of time.

    We're seeing the same scheme all the time.

    Yes. Conditions may be changed, depending on anyone's suggestion.

    To be honest, there is a like button for a reason. I agree with OP

    So instead of having easy tidy ups for people who say thanks, we now need to read an essay about why people say thanks.... I don't know. It may help it may not.

    You're not getting the point. My suggestion would give people the choice to either simply use the like feature or post something contributive as possible.

    Like is almost as equal to thanks, so use the button?

    Nah I understood the point, but I am just saying there will be people who type out over 12 characters (agbewbgiwehogwnbeogiwheg) and then just put thanks, or are you wanting to block anyone from using the word thanks or any variation of the word?

    Why would they do such if they were already prompted to use the like feature (assuming they tried posting 'thanks' the first time and a prompt box appeared). But if they still do so, an infraction is as good, and I guess this would be a rare case.

    Because there are a lot of noobs in this forum which don't understand the idea of a like button. I've deleted plenty of posts to know ˆˆ
