how do you thank posters for their useful posts?!?!
Welcome to GIM!
The "Thanks" function will be enabled for you once you have a made a certain minimum number of posts. (I think it's ten).
Then the "Thanks" button will appear at the bottom of every post and you can just click on it to thank the member who submitted it.
Have a great day!
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
