Had a system to rate the most useful and interesting script ...
to reward in a certain way the author of it.

I think you mean like a Kudos point system?
It's been discussed here before: https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=50565
..but I'm not quite sure what the final consensus was. Perhaps you could also add your input there too. :+1:

There seems to be a working plugin/mod available here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2500296

As it is, no one prevents anyone from thanking another user.

Fast yes. Clear no.
As soon as you introduce some quantative mechanics, manipulations and (formal and informal) competitions will begin, and envy will ensue. This is how people work.
I got called out for making this prediction before, but if you look at the last 15 years (the advent of social media) - or just other forums, it's pretty obvious what will happen.

I, personally, would like to stay away from the mechanisms of social media as far as I can. They are broken and toxic (admittedly, there is much more to it than (public) like buttons, but they are definitely part of certain unfortunate developments).

To be clear, I am absolutely for feedback and thanking (a lot), just not for the (over-simplifying and easily manipulable) numbers game of counting clicks.
