Do you thank people for giving you MHO?

I don't see the point. You did them a service by answering the question. Even if you gain from getting MHO, it's only because that means that you provided a helpful opinion. If anything, it just evens out.

  • It's a habit of mine. I do believe it's not necessary but I catch myself excessively apologizing and excessively giving thanks to things like this. And odly enough, I find myself doing it less with people I am more comfortable around. I thank them for mho because it makes me happy that they appreciated my response. And if they are making me happy- I give them thanks.

  • I will more than likely than a person for MHO unless it was by default or it was kind of a silly question that didn't really matter.

  • Yes, I thank them because it feels right to me. The only time I don't that is when the MHO was selected by the system.

    • I don't know I get the notification and I just say thanks, not much thought is put into it.

  • Yes, everytime. They chose my MHO because they view it as beneficial to them, so it's an automatic response for me to be courteous and say thank you. I view it as rude not to. I see it as internet etiquette lol

    • You can thank the GAG workers lol

    • Show All
    • @Iron_Man Are you serious!! damn no wonder why. I didn't know that. Thanks for telling me that. Hhahah i try too. I just need to work on it a little more :P

    • If a user gives you MH you get the points and a rise in MH percentage but when it hits 30 days and gag gives it out you get nothing for it.

  • Whenever I feel like it. I used to do it all the time but I stopped.

  • At 30 days, it is probably picked by the software. So the owner did not put any effort in and you get no points. So no thanks.
    At less that 30 days, the owner has looked over the opinions and has selected the one (or two) to award MHO to. And points are given for that. So if I receive MHO before 30 days, I will thank the Asker for the effort of consideration and picking me, which gives me points.

  • 1128 MHO
    1128 thank you replies

    It's so automatic that my phone has learned to suggest the words in order:

    "Thank you for the MHO."

    Five words plus the period = six taps of the thumb (plus one tap to make the reply and one more tap to submit it).

  • I usually give them a thank you because it is a nice and polite tradition that got started on GAG and I would like to see it continue.

  • I usually don't. I feel like I'm bugging the asker by doing so. Besides, the work "thanks" doesn't carry the same weight like it used to because it's so often used.

    • Clearly, the consensus seems to be that it's the "respectful" thing to do. But I'm not going to. Waste of time for both parties, in my opinion.

    • Yeah, it is. Especially because I don't click these notifications, I just mark them as read.

  • I thank every time

  • Sometimes. Thanking for MHO feels awkward TBH. Especially on those random, opinion or not-advice kinda questions.
    If I gave an advice on a question and I got MHO then I'd say "I'm glad I could be helpful." But thanking for MHO feels really awkward. I have done that by the way.
