How far your clicking of the "Thanks" button will go to help the quality of this forum? The more, the better.
Recently, @Fat Tails deservedly passed the milestone of 10,000 received "Thanks". Many more thanks and congratulations to him.
It just occurred to me that @Fat Tails has posted at least 100 indicators downloaded on an average (just a guess) of 500 times each. That is an opportunity for 50,000 thanks. He has posted over 6400 posts helping people and answering sometimes ridiculous questions and requests. That is another opportunity for at least 30,000 more thanks if only 5 people were befitted from each.
That makes an opportunity for 80,000 "thanks", yet only 1 out of 8 bothered to thank him for his free and unselfish sharing of indicators and information that would otherwise cost most everyone a good sum of money.
This suggests only one thing: that taking free stuff and advice is considered granted and giving a "cheap" "thank you" to someone who provides something of "value" is too expensive. I hope that is not the case in this community and it is only an oversight.

I totally agree with you...and since I discovered your 'Gradient Color Bars' Thread and took a deeper look at them and also on your thoughts and charts you've posted, it was only natural for me to give you a 'Thanks' in your thread...but you're probably right, too many people consider the hard work from others as a kind of self-evidence.

What an insight, thanks. Personally I wish futures.io (formerly BMT) were not free but came at some cost (though gratis of course for genuine contributors like Fattails). Seems that would help to filter out some of the 'you-owe-me-something-for-nothing' crowd. Simply giving value-for-value in the marketplace.
