Yes Sylvain, this is what I am proposing: another (more measurable) way 
for people to express their gratefulness to people that have helped

The 43things "cheers" are a lovely example of this kind of thing, where 
people have a simple mechanism to encourage others. Read about cheers 
here: The cheer carries no 
weight other than encouragement. The idea of 'targets', that is, 
collect 100 "rounds of applause" and progress to a notional 'next
