    Regardless, why's that worth displaying?

    This is a better critique than simply renaming it to something else.

    Personally, I think it's fine to keep "Thanks received" as is but remove "Thanks given".

    edit: removing them both also works, but thanks received has just enough relevancy to be kept imo

    I feel like that's how the community treats every proposed change. "This is the way it's always been, so why change it" is a shitty argument tbh.

    The main difference between received thanks and given thanks is that the received ones have to be earned. Given thanks is an arbitrary number that you can increase/decrease at will.

    Let me be clear: I don't really care much either way, it's obviously super minor. That said, my problem with it is that it's completely arbitrary. Why not also list our average word count per post, the total number of seconds we've spent online, the number of spaces we've used, etc..
