Everyone has a warn bar underneath there user name, you should get a pm telling you if your warning goes up.

Interesting rule.
But I think this will make the people work less for this board.

Look, at the moment people code programs and post papers. That's great, everyone shares his knowledge. I postet some self developed tools and papers, too. And I got many replies of people who thank me and gratulate for my work. That made me work even more.

Now, how would you feel if you would spent many days developing a program and just a few people would reply because they have a question or something regarding the program.

I think this rule sucks (sorry, that's my opinion) because this will not make this board getting a better community :(

All we ask is that, along with the THANKS, you share WHY you're thankful. Simple as that.

The Warn bar is just there. If it's at 0%, you're okay. Once you start acting up, it goes up 10-20 points a naughty. When you hit 30 points, you get a beautiful, blond escort right out the door!

By the way, I haven't seen many THANKS posts lately. That's good. Am I missing any out there?

Well This is a thanks post in a way. -=Along the same theme in any case. I would just like to express my appreciation for this security site. I was paying for two other sites here recently, but with this site so full of valuable information, and free, I'm going to save some money.

Good deal. It sure is annoying to see people just reply with a 'THX ALOT :D :D' or crap like that.. which is probably why i dont have alot of posts myself but meh, i just like to educate myself while being on here.
the 'warning bar' sounds like a decent idea. Keep up the good work

edit: just noticed the bar is already working lol nice

have you ever been a forum moderator/admin? I haven't,but i know what they feel with such boring posts always come, the database will be quickly very big, and that makes an unnecessary crap... imagine you post a tool here and you receive 20 thanks posts a day... that can be good for you, but not for te admins, since the capacities of the computers are limited... and as the uploader, it can be quite boring and hard to fish out the questions within so many "thanks" posts...

Contrary to popular opinion, I don't enjoy whacking folks....

well, if someone would just say thanks, they could also PM the person, no need to fill the forums with junk instead ;)

keep up the good work.. i'm a member of several other forums, but this is the only one of all which won't allow thanks posts, that makes the reading of a topic a lot easier ;-)

If a program is created on a subject line you are interested in, you're going to have feedback or additional comments. Here's two sample posts that are better than just "thanks":

"Thanks for releasing this tool. At my school network, they still use a lot of NT and Windows 2000 servers, so having those extra offsets in there is great for those of us doing internal auditing."

"Thanks, and yeah, like the guy above, our school has a lot of older servers so this tool works really good. Is it possible to get a module written up for Metasploit using this? I'd really appreciate it!"

It's really very simple for someone to write up just a bit more info. It might give people ideas for future tools.

Some members think that this rule only applies to those in the "trial member" group. Well, it applies to anyone, been warning a few "full members" today about this.
