Hi, all,

Nope, that would increment the other person's counter.
For example; right now I'm at 34 and you're at zero.
I click yours, you click mine, and the numbers will change because of that.

Not "Thanked" as in how many time's you have thanked someone, it's how many times you've received thanks.

That's "'thanked' as in how many times you've been thanked by someone, not how many times you've given thanks".

Yes, you are correct. It sounded right in my head, however I butchered my last sentance via cut-n-paste.

Corrected now.
