I tried looking for this answer and can't seem to find it. Under a user's contributions, there is the Thumbs-up Section. Everything seems to be self-explanatory but the "Replies" category. What is this? Replies to forums? Replies to GeekLists (which would be the same as GeekList comments and located by the rest of the geeklist thumbs I would think)?

I have tried to correlate it with users you have a number here (I am showing 0) but still can't find a connection. How do you get thumbs scored under "Relpies"?

Re: Thumbs-up Replies???
Well, it was edited in our profile pages to be: "Replies to Threads."

However, it is still not counting any of mine. I am still at zero while I know I have quite a few. For others that do have a number there, it still doesn't seem to correlate to their thumbs count either. What is this mystery number?

Re: Thumbs-up Replies???
I have also noticed that the thumbs-ups I have earned for replies don't seem to tabulate at all.

Re: Thumbs-up Replies???
Same here-- I'm wondering if you only get them when you reply in threads you've started yourself?

I looked into that and I don't think that is the case. I have received thumbs in each of these 3 situations:
1) When my first post gets thumbs while the thread gets thumbs also
2) When I get thumbs in subsequent posts I started
3) When I get thumbs in posts on threads I don't start.

I guess the only one I haven't checked is when I start a thread that gets no thumbs but the original post gets thumbs. That might be what it is trying to calculate. - for those that felt they got ripped off that their origianl post got thumbs but not the thread itself.

It is the number of times you replied to threads. Everytime you reply, you should see the thread show up in the list.

I checked and no, it doesn't count if you started a thread. If, on the other hand, you replied on the thread you started then the title of that thread will show up a number of times you made a reply on it.

This is kind of confusing...

For whatever reason, though, it is not counting thumbs I get which fall into Brian's #3 option above.

I haven't gotten any thumbs tallied on my summary sheet for any of the above cases. But under each of the 3 cases, I have recevied thumbs in the threads/posts.

I found one in what I consider the 4th category:

4) I started a thread that has no thumbs, but the original post in that thread does have one.

So I have now looked into what I can see is every possible situation of a "Reply to Thread" and have thmubs in each of this unique cases but still no thumb tally on the summary sheet.

So the mystery remains - What does "Reply to Threads" actually tally?

I believe it is a bug also.
I have 20 thumbs that aren't counted in my contribution page.
All are replies on the topic of someone else.

Not that it matters a great deal. But it would be nice to see this fixed.
Or have a word on it from the man.

Well that was anti-climatic! Thumbs work now for under the category "Reply to Threads!"

After being resigned to the fact all my witty comments would never be tallied, I just watched my "real" thumbs inch towards a 1,000. I was hoping to see that I surpassed 900 this morning and would be less than a 100 away from a yellow meeple. When I click on my profile, I see 1400+ and think I am in the wrong place! I had accumulated over 500 thumbs in comments alone! So it was a bit anti-climatic. But don't get me wrong, I am glad they are there and finally working.

Thanks Aldie!!!

Possibly related: When I looked at my "Contributions" page earlier today, I was surprised to see my thumbs count had suddenly jumbed by about forty. Looking at the breakdown, it seems what has happened is that I've gotten back thumbs from deleted threads and geeklist entries. Was that supposed to happen?
