As of this week, EveryBlock users have "thanked" each other more than 100,000 times!
You've likely seen the "thank" buttons across our site, and hopefully, if you've posted to our site, you've had the pleasant experience of being thanked by your neighbors. We originally added the "thank" buttons in our redesign last year, with the goals of giving people positive feedback for useful contributions and enabling a lightweight way to contribute without the full weight of posting a comment.
Fast-forward to today, and it's been a big success. This is exciting for us because it not only tells us neighbors are continuing to increase their activity on the site, but also that they appreciate the information others are sharing.
So, thanks to all the thankers for promoting good vibes. Looking forward to the next 100,000.
