Thanks!
May I suggest to put the button on the bottom of the post? This is where you end reading the post and so you don't have to scroll backto the top

I am sorry, but we won’t go deep into code to change those mods. This only give problems with future updates.

It’s the only read to been seen...just use your desktop 😉

Sure, on mobile you don’t see it...but people will wonder if they see the thanks below their posts what it is and search for it 😉

Cool! I don't think we need the date and time of the thanks next to each name? Just the name would be fine. Neat idea though, to move away from the thumbs up and thumbs down.

Do we get a new button for pump-me-up? Like a TROLL button?

On mobile it's actually more visible than desktop! I'm fine with it.

Thanks! Better than thumbs up and down, which can lead to losers trolling by repeatedly voting down another poster, like on Sailing Anarchy forums.
