When I have to read tens or hundreds of posts to find information I want on a forum, it's annoying enough to have to sort through the off topic posts. Forums are great for information, but one of the worst things about them is that it takes so much time so sort through posts and really pick up new, reliable information. You have to check three different threads to see if the information is correct, or at least generally accepted, and even then you're not sure if you have it right. Many of these posts are people saying a simple thanks to someone for good information. So I'm not sure if it's a forum plug-in or what, but I've seen some forums where you can simply click a thanks button and it says "<username> has thanked <username>"

See the bottom of the first post on this forum for an example: *No hyperlinks before 30 posts
This might cut down on thank you posts, and save users like me, who do a ton of reading, some time. :)
