    People can just as easily make a new account and spam thank their main account's posts. Yeah though,I like the idea of voting on a person. A few people could be nominated and then voted on.

    I know I'm the guy who got the "thanks" button rolling, but my opinion is that is should be a vote.

    I'm not here real often, but I notice on other forums, when a senior member helps a "n00b" they often don't get thanked. And when somebody cracks a funny joke, they get 8 thanks. Which doesn't really bother me, but it shows me that thanks count is only a helpful indicator and a nice pat on the back, not empirical evidence that a member deserves an award.

    Though the "popularity contest" argument has merit as well. You can have a bunch of friends vote for you, even if you haven't done anything of importance.

    Any way to incorporate both?

    Or maybe the admin/mod's could vote for the best member, I think they should be able to be neutral... :p
