I agree with everyone who said do away with down-voting on Item Buildr and Forum Builder, although I do understand the reasoning behind why they were implemented in the first place, but the problem is that abuse will still continue either way, and if down-voting is done away with, at least some people won’t be as frustrated. To better level the playing field in Forum Builder, how about just giving everyone like 3 submissions per week, regardless of builder score? Navigating through all the submissions can be a royal pain in the bum though, but ehh…

Giving everyone the same number of suggestions is a p bad idea, IMHO. People who regularly write good submissions should get to make more submissions, that’s fine and dandy and it means a higher volume of good to bad ideas. It’s just that, instead of a linear “Get 2 more submissions because you had X many good ideas this week”, there should be a curve on submissions, based on how many submissions the “average” player should get. What we need is a limited equation that makes it harder and harder to get more submissions as your count climbs, and easier to lose them. Truly bad players should bottom out to one submission quickly, and high-score buildrs who flood mediocre ideas should lose submissions quickly. It should take constantly good performance to maintain a “high” submission count.
