    Some of you may have noticed that I replaced "Thanks" with "Likes"

    A few thoughts about the change:

    1) We can always go back to Thanks if folks don't like the change after giving it a try for a couple weeks.

    2) Most of the time, the Thanks button used to show that someone likes a post and/or the images in that post.

    3) The "like" button can also be used to say "thanks", eg when someone has complimented you in their post. Not exactly the same to like and to thank, but close enough and used this way in many communities.

    I'm always open to suggestions / feedback, but please give it some time before concluding that you dislike the change.

    Also, you can enable or disable being notified of new Likes via these settings:
    • Like Like x 1

    I prefer "like" to "thank". While "like" seems to almost always fit well, "thanks" does not always sound 100% truthful :)
