Thanking othersEdit

I use the thanks button a lot. I hope it is received by others as a small token of appreciation for the work they do here. Many times I thank users for changes they made a long time ago, such as starting an important page. Some of the users I thank have not edited for many years. I thank them just in case they ever check their account so they will know that someone appreciated the work they did. When time permits, I also thank users who have contributed to articles that I started, or other articles that I come across in the hope of encouraging them to stick around. If I thanked you for your talkpage comment it is likely because I appreciate you taking the time to participate, not necessarily because I agree with you.

I try to limit thanking admins so as not to seem like I am looking for favours. Also, I have seen somewhere that some of the more popular users receive so many thanks that they view thanks as a form as harrassment.

I wrote this mainly for those I have thanked to try and explain why I thank users. If you have any questions/concerns/remarks, I would appreciate you letting me know on my talk page. I will attempt to respond, time permitting.
