So I noticed early on that lots of people around here are really supportive and don't hesitate to say thank you for votes, rep, and general awesomeness. For awhile I was posting visitor messages to say thank you, but then I realized that every visitor message posted appears on the What's New? page. If I send out a few thank yous at once it fills up that page with something that's really only of interest to two people, so I decided to use private messages instead.

However, I tried to send a message to a generous cartographer to say thanks but... mailbox was full! Then I started wondering if maybe it's annoying to get private messages since there's a limit to how many can be stored.

Am I overthinking this? What do others think about how to say thank you?

Uh... thank you for any ideas! Maybe I should just mail letters...
