I use that post forms in specific sections but for people with no answers. This is avoided that positions be included "0" response

Create a new template in the style you want this to display in and name it:
then paste this in that template when creating it:

<li data-author="ThanksBot" class="message replyBot" id="post-null">
    <div itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Person" itemscope="itemscope" class="messageUserInfo">
        <div class="messageUserBlock">
            <div class="avatarHolder">
                <span class="helper"></span>
                <a data-avatarhtml="true" class="avatar Av1m" href=""><img width="96" height="96" alt="ThanksBot" src="styles/default/xenforo/avatars/avatar_m.png"></a>
                <!-- slot: message_user_info_avatar -->
            <h3 class="userText">
                <a itemprop="name" class="username" href="">ThanksBot</a>
                <em itemprop="title" class="userTitle">Automated Attaboy</em>
                <em itemprop="title" class="userBanner bannerStaff wrapped"><span class="before"></span><strong>Thank you robot</strong><span class="after"></span></em>
                <!-- slot: message_user_info_text -->
            <span class="arrow"><span></span></span>
    <div class="messageInfo primaryContent">
        <div class="messageContent">
                <blockquote class="messageText ugc baseHtml">
                    Thank you for posting this @<a data-user="{$message.user_id}, {$message.username}" class="username" href="{xen:link 'members'}{$message.user_id}/">{$message.username}</a>

Next go edit template: message

add this to the very end of the template
<xen:if is="{$post.position} % {$xenOptions.messagesPerPage} == 0 AND {$forum.node_id} == NODEID">
    <xen:include template="secondPost_thanksBot" />
Replace NODEID with the node id #

From there you can modify that template, upload an image for it's avatar and change the link for it an pretty much whatever else you want.

Yes but not doing it this way which inserts a dummy post after the first post in any thread in node-X. You would need to do something else to achieve what you are asking but honestly I don't think it is worth the time to do all that for an auto thank you reply which should be very simple.

Yes I know that answer is simple: =) but when you create a database with users that adds hundreds of messages not requiring an answer, it's pretty annoying: (

Hence the fact that I wondered if it was possible :)
