I have read some notes made about giving thumbs up and I am still no completely sure of doing this.
Is a Thumbs Up given when you post on a forum?
Do you click on the thumbs up symbol on that persons (subscriber) green thumbs up symbol?

Yep, just click the green thumbs up everytime you see something you like. It's like the "Like" button on facebook.

See, if you wanted to give Dave a "thumbs up" for his answer to your question, you'd click on the little green thumb in his post. Likewise, if you see something you want to be able to easily find again, click on the little star symbol in that same area, and it will be saved on your Profile page.

(For clarity, I put a little arrow pointing to the spot you'd click in this photo)

Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

And I just gave woofie a thumbs up for her explanation. Click on the number in parenthesis that is to the right of the thumb.

P.S. Nice Adenium pics you've been posting.

If you're having trouble giving thumbs up, like they won't "take", and you're using Internet Explorer, try from some other browser. That worked for me. It also allowed the "lists" features to work.

I love the thumb feature! It lets people know you were there & liked what you saw or read w/o having to type, if that's all you had to say. Very supportive, positive feature!
