    “Thank" button problem

    The “Thank" button doesn’t work on my computer.

    Operating system on my computer: Windows 10
    Browser on my computer: SogouExplorer

    I’d like your help.

    They don't work here either.

    If the "Thanks" and "Like" buttons need google or facebook js enabled to function, then they wouldn't work here. Blocked by ISP.

    Test:



    It works!

    As does the in our selection of smileys.

    Unfortunately, both of these appear in a new post, something the 'thank' button avoided.

    Mod emsr2d2 will delete a "Thank you" post. He did that already.

    Yup. That's another problem.

    Don't assume that all the mods are male. Emsr2d2 is not.

    There's no need to apologise. You can use it as a good basis to practise the use of the gender-neutral "they/them/their". Your post #6 would read "Moderator emsr2d2 will delete a "Thank you" reply. They did that already".

    You're right, though, that I do summarily delete posts that just say "Thank you". The problem (for us) is that they appear on the home page as new post so we take the time to click through, only to find that it's not a follow-up question, or a new language-based response, just a "Thank you".

    One solution is for you to create a signature line that reads something like "Unfortunately, I am unable to access/use the "Thank" and "Like" buttons".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Don't worry about it- if your browser doesn't support the Like button, we'll know you're thanking us from this thread.
