I see it used pretty often. Are you looking for something replace it with, or in addition to? I've also seen it used kind of like "I agree with what you've written," or a +1. Ideas: Where X=users or gamers or LaunchBoxers or LaunchBox Lovers or LBLs: These [X] raises a frosty glass in gratitude [can also be "in support" or "in your honor"]. These [X] salute you. These [X] think this post is groovy, baby. [a gaming AND Ash Williams reference! Double win! :) ] These [X] think this post is as awesome as a double rainbow! [see this video for reference] If you'd like it meta, or gaming related: These [X] say "Conglaturation ! ! !" [from the NES Ghostbusters ending] These [X] think A Winner is You. [from the US version of Pro Wrestling, also on the NES] These [X] gift you 10 virtual XP for this post. These [X} think you are a spoony bard! [from FFIV] These [X] think you are the Master of magnet! [from the X-Men arcade game] It's slightly disturbing, the amount of pre-coffe time I've spent on this already this morning. lol

Hehehehehe. I'm thinking of replacing it with something still meaningful but with some humor, ideally related to gaming. I love the concept of using bad English from old games lol, that's perfect. http://www.11points.com/Games/11_Worst_Japanese-To-English_Translations_In_Nintendo_History I'm really liking #9 from this page lol. "You have accomplished the mission. You are the very prevailer that protect right and justice. The following gamers express their sincere thanks to you. Take good rest!" Hehehehehehe. Hehehehehehehehehe.

This is the title I think!!!! Believe it or not, that's not my original sentence. Your "Engrish" solution inspired me to seek out online translators, and that's what I ended up with after typing in "I think you've hit the nail on the head. Great work!" Oddly enough, it still makes sense. The full conversion is below, but I think my favorite moment was when it translated the same thing as "I think that you are the boss. In!!!!" Kinda interesting to see how it got there. Wow. I excel at procrastinating. I have a service to run tonight, and I still have to write the sermon, prayers, and benediction. o_O
