When you "thumbs up" a question, does that give the person asking points, or just "warm fuzzies" for doing a good job?

It used to be 2 points and a warm fuzzie for either answering or an upper.
But on-line fuzzies were banned and replaced with an additional 2 points for each.

It is always nice to see someone appreciated your answer. The ranking system has gone to "heck" and the TOP AGENTS are buried now where they used to be prominately displayed for all to see unless you pay pay pay for zip codes to get leads from your own listings. .

Giving a TU increases their total number of "votes" (as they now are called)......but those totals do not show up as a criteria, as they used to, on the agent ranking system (their "new and improved" system haha - now, how much you pay for zip codes and ads helps increase your ranking)..........they don't even show the number of best answers anywhere, anymore, except when the agent looks up their own voices activity.

Your total TU's (called" helpful answers") will show up when you let the mouse hover over your picture, or any agent's picture on a thread.

I love how they added: "THANK"
Huh?
It's the same as giving a thumbs up, or a vote......why the need to be redundant? I have no idea what the powers that be at trulia are thinking these days!

So the voting associated with questions was a "former" criteria.?. I definitely remember when they added "Thank." I think we should endear it as part of the Great Glitch of 2013! Lights out, points gone!!

I treat it similarly to a "Like" on Facebook. Doesn't mean much but shows that person that I appreciated the time they took to write such an informative answer.

It used to add to your aggregate points, then it would help your ranking, but those days are gone.

I've thanked all of you but can no longer write replies. I read on another post that you can only write two before having to leave and come back. Did that. Nothing. No buttons. Oh well, it's New Year's Eve eve and probably time to give it all a rest. I wish all of you Happy New Year, and peace, health and prosperity in 2014!

It would certainly be nice if it was "worth" something, so we could maintain the status levels we're all working hard for here. Seems like things are a little more difficult than they need to be lately.

It basically boils down to "lukewarm fuzzies"...

It doesn't mean much, other than to see that someone either appreciated what you said, or agreed with it.

Thanks. Hopefully once the site improvements are made Trulia will give better explanation as to "what = what." Five months in and still have questions.
