Re: Problems with "thanks"

Remove the thanks feature.

Calling for feature removal are often the posts with the highest thanks to characters ratio. Also, I'm not serious about removing thanks. It's much better than pages of +1 posts, even if it's sometimes unclear if the thank is on scale 1 or 2 of the dpeg scale.

Re: "Dungeon" Translation

Actually, it's exactly the same in english. Dungeon means the prison in the center of the castle. It's only in the context of RPG that it has the meaning of underground complex with doors, monsters and treasures. So it's fine to use the translated word, swedish gamers should understand it just fine....
