Kialo’s thanks feature allows you to express gratitude to another user - for creating a discussion, creating a claim, making an edit: anything that creates an entry in the Comments & History section of a claim or thesis.
To thank someone, go to the Comments & History log of a claim or thesis (click on the three dots that appear at the top-right-hand of a claim or thesis when you hover over it, or right-click the claim or thesis, to open the claim menu bar. Select ‘Comments & History') and click on the heart-shaped thanks icon under the entry you want to thank.
(For example, to thank the user for creating this discussion, you would click the heart icon under the 'Created this thesis' entry.)
As a shortcut to thank someone for creating a discussion, you can thank them through the thesis menu. Click on the three dots that appear at the top-right-hand of a thesis when you hover over it, or right-click on the thesis, to open the thesis menu bar. Select ‘Thank Discussion’.
Every entry in the Comments & History log has a thanks counter under it indicating how many thanks have been received for that action. Every user can find their global thanks count - of all thanks across the site - at the top-right-hand corner of the Home page (see: Home and Explore Pages).
You can thank each action only once. Un-thanking is not currently possible. Once you click the thanks icon, the heart will turn black and its count increase by one. Note that thanks on comments remain visible even if the comment is deleted.
