    The "Thanks" feature would be nice.

    Or could we add a "Sarcastic Thanks" button as well?

    "Bless your dear little heart" sounds cool.

    Or " A foot up your ass"

    Actually, we could use some explanations for the buttons we've already got. For example, if you click on one of the little figures near my name, it says I'm 'the USER WITH MOST REFERRERS.'

    Have no idea what that means and when I tried to cash it in at Wells Fargo, they just laughed at me.

    WTH is a REFERRER???

    Members with the most "referrals" simply means that other PF members when filling out their registration, typed in your name (as a referral) in the process.
    (You have 225 total "referrer" points compared to my 100)

    How about a "thanks for trying" button?

    Or "Attention whore"

    Maybe "Troll alert"

    Just a thought....

    Yeah, right. Do we have 'referral' on the sign in? I didn't think so... and I've never referred anybody here except the few close buds who signed on the same time I did.

    It's a dubious honor. (meaning nobody knows what the hell it means)

    "Paid Agent" would be a good one... there are a couple who fit that bill.

    "Whine Warning"

    "Panic Button"

    ???

    "Shoey" is nodding his approval.

    How about "Dingbat"

    Or "Epic fail"

    "I don't understand what you're saying" button???

    "One more attempt, with feeling!"

    The "referrer" thing is fairly important, it's thanks for bringing new members into the forum. Not that this forum needs new members.

    Like I said... the only new members I've brought here are the handful who joined with me. It's a bogus 'award'. I'd much rather receive reps for my work than rewards for taking up space.

    How 'bout a "WTF is taking so long" button?

    No idea if you even can. You don't even have to actually recommend the site to them, just mention it. If they visit this site because of you, they put your name in that box.

    THINGS THAT STILL DON'T WORK OR WORK RIGHT:

    RECENT POSTS ARE WAY BEHIND BEING UP TO DATE
    SAME WITH RECENT THREADS
    PERMALINKS DON'T WORK
    SEARCH AND ADVANCE SEARCH DON'T WORK

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, put some pressure on admin to get these things working properly. It's very difficult to participate this way.
    Sometimes I can't find my own darn threads.

    One more thing, reported posts are not dealt with for long periods of time or not at all.
    I'm seeing metaposts, personal attacks, baiting and flaming increased and not dealt with. I know it's a thankless job, but I'm asking politely that you all get more help or whatever.

    The problem with viewing recent posts and threads is being worked on. We know about the search and that is being fixed as well. I thought permalinks worked, but perhaps not. Oh well, the Admin will have it sorted. Y'all need to remember that she does have a life, probably a job, and has only a few hours a day to work on this forum.

    If they put my name in that box... there must be a record, right?

    I NEVER refer anyone to this forum in r/l or online because I have no interest in sharing my addiction w/family & friends. If that's what the 'award' is based on... it's bogus. Or at the very least, misnamed.

    While I appreciate the effort, it just adds to the vision I have of this whole 'upgrade' experience. Where it stops, nobody knows!!!

    Now darlin, you know I'm never gonna run off without dragging you along and I fully expect the same from you! If you vanished, I'd have to come up there and find you!

    Do you remember typing in my name as 'referrer' when you signed up, Mikey?
