Thanks (?)

It's long been curiously disappointing to me how many people, on every tracker, download a show without even simply pushing the "Thanks" button...much less briefly adding a thankful comment....

Today's example is "my" Blind Melon upload: 54 downloads as of now...and only one person took the time to acknowledge it by adding a "Thanks."

Prepping/uploading takes a lot of time & effort, folks. And I know that all uploaders appreciate some thanks.

Talking Re: Thanks (?)

I usually like to post a thanks or a comment of some kind in a thread that I've downloaded from - a little bit for my own reasons!
It can be a good reminder later on when you see an old post and think "wow that looks good, I'd better download it..." and forget that you already did - until you see your old comment talking about it! Already got it. Thanks for the reminder, self! haha

Well ... I'm getting close to 200 uploads here, and I've never bothered whether folks thank me or not.

Sorry, but I think you're verging on over-precious about this.

Do the work, take what thanks you get, and move on to the next upload or download.

I'm digitising, tagging and organising the stuff anyway, regardless of whether I upload it here or not. The extra to upload it is small beer in the big scheme of things

Thanks for your thoughts, which I of course respect. (And thanks very much for sharing music here!)

To me, ultimately it is a question of politeness: at least, how I define it. Fulsome demonstrations of anything are never good - yet I do think that simple gestures like this go a long way in the scheme of things.

It's a matter of opinion. Like you, I will continue to contribute, with or without thanks.
