tool is useful to you. :)

Thanks again to those who created Echo. It is being

* I would like to ask about the thanks system on Meta.
I started to use the Echo thanks system to thank who are answering questions on the Annual
Plan talk page, including some of you on this list, and I ran into some differences from
English Wikipedia. On Meta I am asked for the revision ID of the edit for the thanks
notification, and after thanking a user the "thank" link for an edit doesn't
change to "thanked". Will Meta thanks notifications be upgraded in the future to
function like ENWP's does?
I’m not sure why Thanks would behave differently on Meta. Does anyone know?
