Thanks given: what's your take on thanking posts?

I've always wondered what people think of giving thanks to posts and what criteria a post needs to getting a thanks. Do any of you try to keep a certain ratio of thanks given to thanks received or do you just wing it? Am I the only person who thinks about this or am I going crazy?

Hi @Itchymoku

My policy to give thanks here is to see if a follower of a thread has read a argument, understood and
has brought own thoughts to the theme.

I thank posts that I consider valuable (meaning: informative or helpful) for myself or the community. I consider thanking posts quite important, and thus I thank often. Personally, it always annoys me if people thank only a few posts.

I do often wonder why some posts get a lot of thanks. Some posts that are copy-pasted from another website can receive a lot of thanks ("thanks for copyright infringement"?) while other posts in which energy is put and references are added do not receive (much) thanks.

When I read a post that I feel is useful or helpful to others or myself, I thank the poster. That's it.

I give "Thanks" for (almost) anything that I feel better for having read/watched/listened to. Also, on rare occasions for being civil.

My intention to express my thanks is if a particular post is helpful / valuable to me or supporting in any way, e.g. by answering a certain question, putting me in the right direction of a topic, leaving a (decent) comment on what I've posted before, providing a specific link / indicator, or even if someone expresses his opinion which is similar or equal to mine.

...Or even if someone starts a thread like this one...
