Now, I Любовь Благодарности as much (or more) than the Далее person and when I go to my page and see that someone has дана me a благодарность I am in a happy little bubble for the rest of the day. I think this is a wonderful feature so that people can be recognized for their outstanding work. However, there is a etiquette that goes along with giving props. Благодарности are something Ты should give if Ты feel that a person has contributed something funny, substantial, unique, outstanding, или just plain awesome in your eyes. They are essentially a reward for hard work that Ты have done. They are like a virtual high five. They are not intended as venue for chatting with Друзья или saying hi to someone. It is also not fitting to благодарность back unless Ты are actually propping that person for something they did, and not just saying thanks to them for the благодарность they gave you. These are both things that can be done through a message. I personally Любовь messages almost as much as props, especially if they would be out of place as a prop. One thing I Любовь about Fanpop is that the people on here are so positive and sweet! Sometimes they are so positive that they are a little overzealous and give people Благодарности without a reason или just to say hi. I find it a little disconcerting that some people have 15 или 20 have not contributed anything. I also commonly see people who have Благодарности in categories that they have not contributed anything in. For example they have 7 Благодарности for Видео and have not contributed any videos. Benji made this AWESOME Форум on the Being Nice spot called "The Hug Topic" which is to recognize people for things that are not "prop worthy' but still deserve recognition (here's the link: link
). By the way, I am not Письмо this soapbox to upset anyone; that is absolutely the last thing that I would want to do, because Ты are all so awesome! However, I do think that it is important to use this and other features in the way they were intended to be used.
