27 Dec 2007: The [hide] tag lets a certain portion of your post to be hidden. This tag is usually used for hiding download links, passwords, or other useful informations. The hidden content will apear when condition is met. A normal [hide] tag requires a member to have a certain amount of post before he can view the hidden content. [showtogroups] allows only selected usergroups to view the hidden content. [hide-thanks] will hide the content until the user presses the thank you button. [hide-reply] will hide the content until the user replies to the thread.

The most frequently used tag is [hide-thanks]. With that tag, members will have to click the thanks button before they can see the hidden content. Some members dont have a problem with it, they somehow understand that its one of the poster’s way of motivating himself. But most of the members find it annoying so they requested for its removal. Which was granted eventually.

With the exit of [hide-thanks], a new Thanks System kicked in. But this time, it’s no longer a ‘forced-thanks’ as other members thought of the old Thanks System. Members may give thanks whenever they feel like giving.
