Sorry, but your "Thanks" counter for this prized member isn't working! He has received several votes of appreciation, but none of them show up in his "mini-window"!

I for one, GREATLY appreciate this submission; I'm not running Windows 7 (yet), but I'm collecting all the info I can find before I make the leap. Once I change, I'll not be going back to XP Pro, I'm sure.

So... THANK YOU FOR THESE USEFUL TIPS!

Karl K.

Hi Karl, welcome to Windows Forums.
The Thanks system is working fine. I just given (apparently) him some Thanks and it showed immediately.
How come you know he's received Thanks? Just out of curiosity.

The counter will only show if a user clicks the "Thanks" button. Simply replying and saying "thanks" does not add to this count. I hope that makes sense :)
