Someone likes your post they hit the thumb icon and you have a rec to your name. Just means your post is liked. If you like a post by another member you can click on the thumb icon. Only thing is you can't see what posts were actually liked. Most just to show the poster that their posts were liked.

In case you have not copped it, you can't rec your own posts. Plus it only about 1 rec an hour. So you can't keep hitting the rec button on every post you read.

When you say you can't see which posts were recommended, does that mean that I cannot see anywhere in my posting history which ones were recommended?  It's not a huge deal, I just thought it would be nice to be able to tell what people are finding the most helpful so that I can learn from that as well as repeat advice that others might find helpful as well.

Thanks for clarifying for me

That's right. We have no idea what posts people liked. Suppose it is more just a feel good factor for the poster. To know others are finding his / her posts of some use to them. At times you can guess. May have only made three posts that day and your rec count has gone up. Has to be one of the three posts you just made. I know I have a few recs myself. But to be honest it is something I never even look at. I am not posting to gain recs. I'm posting to answer whatever posts I think I can answer. I would still be doing the same thing if the rec thing was not there. But at least you know you are helping people out. I don't think everybody understands the rec thing. You might give a excellent answer but the person has no idea what the thumb icon is for. But I do be just happy to answer what I can, when I can.

"a few recs" ha, you have many: )  You have always given wonderful advice and I know that I, and many others, quite appreciate your insightfulness.  Thank you.

And, yes, I agree, one should not be posting just to gain recs, rather focusing on the content of their reply and doing the best every time.

Thank you for clearing that all up!  I hope you had a really nice holiday season.

Cheers
