Re: Thank you on Congratulations posts?

I have an etiquette question for the credit card approvals section.

 

If someone posts congratulations on an approval, it would normally be good manners to say thank you.

 

But every time the OP says thank you, he or she is 'bumping' the thread, thereby keeping it alive without anything new of substance.

 

What is the right way to go on that? Say thank you, or not say thank you?


SJ, I usually respond back with a "thank you"! We all like to know that our posts are appreciated, and it doesn't really matter how large the thread becomes. It will eventually find its way out to the pasture! Smiley Happy

Re: Thank you on Congratulations posts?

Personally I would prefer it if OP posts on Congratathon threads did not bump the post to the top. Only new replies from other users.

Re: Thank you on Congratulations posts?

Some congratulations filled threads have been filled with data points I needed but would have missed if people had not said thank you/ congrats and kept it alive a few days..... I try to wait 2 days then say thank you... Then I worry that since I post at random hours people who want the pertinent data in my post won't find it.

That would be a nice forum setting but I doubt it's within the capabilities of the Lithium software.

It may be a good idea to put in a feature request for this with Lithium software. I imagine other Lithium clients would also benefit from having that capability

In my opinion, which nobody probably cares about, it shouldn't matter whether or not you post to say thank you. I've been taught to say thank you to someone who is complimenting me therefore I try to say it as much as I can. We're a part of a forum that consist of millions of posts. So what if a thread stays bumped due to thank you posts. That reassures me that the people I am taking advice from know how to be humans! We need more good humans in the world.


I cant read  your post....have no idea what it says, I need to blow it up to 300%...lol


Sorry, I forgot to change the font size. Smiley Happy
