I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

We’re going to be adding a feature where people can vote on individual posts. The idea is to eliminate some of the replies that are like “signed” or just a quote of something someone said.

Additionally, you could vote a post down if you find it really ****ty.

Eventually this will lead to things like “post of the day”, “post of the week,” etc. Maybe even filtering out the lowest posts!

The one problem is we don’t have a name for the voting that sounds decidedly Forumwarz-ish. So we want you guys to suggest names for the vote up / vote down concept.

Examples would be:

Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down

Yay / Nay

mammary glands / GTFO

We just made numerous posts to try to get rid of down voting on Forumbuildr, now this is going to spread the cancer to Flamebate.

empty-quoting is a sign of appreciation of the funniness / truthiness of the post that is quoted. getting rid of them is not such a good thing.

I really don’t think we’d give out chocolate scoops or anything like that. Plus posts won’t get buried.

It’s just for fun and to bump things.

In a site of trolls the best post would be -50. Bad idea, maybe good for The Sims Forums, but not here sadly. Too much bumhurt to be had.

You cant give trolls gold, they’ll just make grills.

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

That’s never going to happen, for reason put forth quite well above. Also because trolls will continue to do it just to be defiant. And everyone on the site’s a troll. So if that’s the sole goal, I vote don’t do it. If I get a vote.

Also, drama will be stirred by accusations of klan voting, people will downvote certain posts based just on who the poster is, etc. Have you learned nothing from domination and INCIT?

Evil Trout Posted:

Well, for fun, that’s cool. But to bump things? So all it would take to keep the recently active posts stay the same is to continue to upvote them? I’m not so sure that’s a good idea…
