As you will see in the bottom right hand corner there is a 'Thanks' button.

If you see a post you like or your question is answered. You can 'Thank' the user. You will also see in your user stats how many times you have been thanked and how many thanks you have given.

I'm just trying this out at the moment, so your thoughts and ideas would be great.

You can try it out by thanking me for this post.

I'm thinking of removing the reputation system and this could be a replacement.

Vote in the poll. So we can get an idea of what people think.

Well obviously I haven't been here in awhile and everything but I don't like it because all of my rep from the last how-many years is gone and I don't feel special anymore.

I've decided the thanks system is working well. It's a shame your old rep is lost, however your post count gives a good idea of your contributions.
