Where are all the 'Thanks' coming from ?

I often see my 'Thank' count grow, but threads thanked in the list view do not change, i.e. it appears the thanks are not listed in chronological order of the thanks given, but based on the date of the actual thread. That is to say, an old post of mine can get thanks and be the latest thanks I got, but not show up when I click to see what threads have beeen thanked.

Not a complaint, maybe a suggestion. Can "Thanks" be displayed in chronological order ?

Looks like we have another casualty. Another one is taken by the dark side of the force.

You're digging it round and it ought to be square.
The shape of it's wrong, it's much too long.
And you can't put a hole where a hole don't belong

I second you on that. I made a similar request last year.
It happened that someone thanked the post and asked something new in the thread. But since there is no tracking tool it's only weeks later that I discovered it by chance and answered the poster.

Re: Where are all the 'Thanks' coming from ?

Short answer: It's theoretically possible but would be hard to do without getting right down into the database innards, which is more than I am comfortable with and would also complicate any future vbulletin upgrades.


Slightly longer explanation: "post_thanks" is a separate table, with an entry for each 'thank'. No data about thanks is currently stored in the "posts" table. Basically the current search is for "posts whose post number appears somewhere in the post_thanks table." It's easy to order these results by post number (as a proxy for posting date) since there is already a post number associated with each post. That's what we currently do. To order them your way on the fly, we would effectively need to comb through multiple post_thanks entries for every post, find the earliest/latest of them and then sort by THAT. Can it be done, sure, maybe, probably. Nontrivial amount of work though and probably not worth the trouble.

The sensible way to do it, to my mind, would be to add two columns to the "posts" table, "date last thanked" and "date last groaned", and then have the thank/groan routines update those as well as creating an entry in the "post_thanks" table. To be honest I'm not keen on messing with the database to that extent though (even if I had access, which I haven't.)


-------------------------------------
A post can only be thanked if it was made within the last 14 days, so in your case that's only... 57 thanked posts to look back through. I don't think many users will have more than that many. Consider it the price of caring.

Re: Where are all the 'Thanks' coming from ?

As always, MN, you are a ridiculous wealth of knowledge. It is much appreciated for those of us who are actually a bit curious about things... I mean, not specifically this (for me) but just in general.
