The Thanks button is the first one (black background with white hand/thumb up), the Like button is the second that looks more like an actual hand/thumb up, and there's also a dislikes button after that with a thumb down image. Not sure why they're not responding when you click on them, though. Would help Jordan figure it out to know what OS and browser/version you're using.
The welcome matt is not visible on several posts : eg page 2- # 12,14,16,20 have it, but not the others.
using Macbook and safari. Not a real issue for me- I just read posts
I am so sorry. I didn't look closely enough.....There are the WORDS welcome in the newer posts! I missed it because it looks totally different in IE. ( had an actual looking mat in Opera)
