"Don't pay it back, pay it forward!"

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
This suggestion for a "gift message" was made by our very own katiemae1277, regarding gifts. A lot of TCS addicts manage to rack up so many points that they are quite able to spread some joy, and give gifts to people whom they might not even know. There's no obligation to reciprocate if somebody sends you a gift! So, instead of using your hard-earned points to reciprocate, why not use them to welcome a newbie, or show recognition of an occasional poster? You could use her "slogan", or simply type, "Thanks to ....", or "Thanks, ......".

I think that's a wonderful idea as well even though I don't have many points to begin with. I think that would make someone'e day

I sometimes say, just because, or , this is the closest thing to a hug, or it might be for a animal, or it could be for congratulations. It just depends, I have never been at a loss for words.

It certainly made my day!

I can say that I really appreciated my thoughtful gift. I've been having a really rough year so far and Susie (unknowingly) sent me a gift on a day that was particularly difficult. It really made me feel good - and I continue to be appreciative of her thoughtful gesture. I hope to pay it forward one of these days too!

That is what I try and do to, I just like giving presents, and sometimes when I give one the person will thank me through a pm and tell me they will give me one back later, I always pm them back and tell them to not do that. I give because I like to give.

I have been giving some in memory of a pet too.

That sounds wonderful even if I don't post much to rack up the points. It can make someones day (it did to me ). I hope to be able to pass it on as well.

But you're averaging 38 posts a day right now, so are definitely racking up points. Have you signed up for TCS Anonymous?

Yep, I did, I think I was one of the first few people, I did admit to be addicted to this board, this is one of the nicest boards I have ever been on.

That sounds like something Neet woulda said, but if you think I talk a lot here, you should see me in real life, I have been told that I could talk to a stump.
