how about changing the "thanks" button to a "like". thanks is sometimes just awkward, because usually people just like the post and they're not really thanking the poster for the post. like for instance when someone says something informative ala "stick that cable in there" and the one who finds it informative will press the thanks button. in this situation it applies really well, but not if someone just says something funny - thanking for it sounds silly. i mean you get it, like facebook. so what do you say? also i think the rep system and this are kind of clashing. don't really get why there's a need for both. also, this "ignore user" is hurting my eyes. could you change it to a button or something prettier?
