    It's not a bad idea, I wouldn't mind seeing a global stats page type of thing it in the software, but there are definitely higher priority things I need to get to first. Pull requests welcome, of course. If there are a few stats you'd like to see it's a lot easier for me to do a one off query against the DB and just post the results than build a UI for this kind of thing.

    gotta be honest, even though I use it as much as anyone else the whole thanks system is pretty faggy and reminds me a lot of facebook likes. The thing that I think makes it work is that NiS is such a caustic environment that we're all much more ready to dole out a "fuck you, you dumb cunt" than any kind of acknowledgment, even of things we agree with, so the natural bitter spiteful nature of this place acts as a counterbalance of the inherent circlejerkyness of a "me too" button. The saving grace of thanks is that they might count to you if you watch your thanks count but they don't count for shit to anyone else outside of the very local context they occur in. Making a leader board and encouraging people to watch it ruins the balance of it IMO.

    Thanks can mean a lot of things. A lot of the time it is not simply "tee hee, I agree with you!".

    There are sarcastic thanks, evil thanks, thanks to prove a point, thanks to emphasize the stupidity of the poster, etc.

    I can make a stats page in R i am fairly certain if you could host it under url/stats. You can use data from your DB to populate the stats db.
