Plus the brownie point system drives me crazy

It's a good gamification system for new users, pushes them to study harder and to be more active in chat (join the community).
However, it would be great to have a disable checkbox, coz it's very annoying after a few months. Btw, it doesn't send brownies for "thz", so you can use it, but some ppl might think that u are snob :)

After the vote link reset I was getting spammed in FCC/FCC with meaningless thanks and I was sick of it

TY (or thz)... I think being able to thank someone is as much (if not moreso) for the person showing gratitude - much in the same way that an apology made is often more healing for the soul who's body made it. As much as it feels good to give praise & thanks - or release a conscience ridden with a heavy burden - it's kind to consider the receiver.

@alicejiang1 sorry about the whole vote link debacle by the way. We're glad you're still here participating in the discussion and contributing your thoughts :)

@QuincyLarson No need to apologize. I was fully aware of what would happen when I typed in that URL. All is well, and "contributing" is debatable but I'm flattered ;)

@SamAI-Software Hah! I'm not sure I'm convinced of that, but it can feel like it sometimes - for shizzle!
