Funny I just sent a personal U2U thank you to an ATSer who I thought was doing a brilliant job on a thread. We can only give one star and flag, and
sometimes I think OPs, threads and posts are worthy more, so in those cases I send a quick message and give a little extra thanks. I don't do it
often, but when I do it is because I really feel the writing is valuable.
I guess that is just me and how I am, but I know others are different. When I first began here on ats I was so excited to post, I was reckless and
really didn't understand the nature of thread making or OPs, i did not even follow my own threads well and didn't think to star....it was really bad
of me, and so I stopped making OPs for a long time because I was an irresponsible threadmaker.
now that I have been here awhile, really got used to how things operate, I understand why starring is important and it is not about ratings or
popularity, it is about giving feedback and saying thank you to those who take the time to contribute, if I put something out there and people respond
it isn't just being polite to give them a star, or because i like what they say, even if i dont like what they say, to me it is about building a
better community that feels good about posting their thoughts regardless.
