Is there a way I can turn it off or set my number all the way to one?
A lot of people are being dicks to me and zapping me so I'm just going to beat them to the punch and just set it to one.


No there is no way to turn it off or set it to one yourself. I did help you by giving you a one for this post, however. Glad to be of service.

Well, the idea is to only allow "positive" ratings, for example, Percy wants to use the rating system to automate the "post of the month" process.

This would mean that no negative ratings can be given, you can only nominate a post or not, I guess.

Regarding "Post of the Month," I'm considering having halls of both fame and shame.


Well, that would defeat the purpose of making it "abuse proof", wouldn;t it? I mean, Poor Buz will have a lot of those "Hall of shame" nominations, as would Bolder, ICD, and Archy. Just going from the current state of things.

So, I think that adding a "Hall of shame" will just get the members with the lowest scores at this point be in there alot. Which I don;t think will promote positive debate, and will only increase the accusations of bias.

Re: About the Hall of Shame...
Whimsical names eh?

How about "Percy's testing thing to put bad posts in that isn't going to be around for long but is needed, or else Percy can't sell his software - Hall"?

Re: Any thoughts on this?
I don't know, that would mean that "casual" topics in the coffee house, which would gather al lot of "casual" posts would be a thing of the past (like, say the "what kind of music do you like", "Beer topic", "Cigar topic", RAZD's "bycicle topic" and stuff like that), these topics would "endanger" your score if you are very active in them. You would be "punished" for just having a bit of fun (as I am want to do, yes, I am biased ).

Not a good thing, I'd say.

Re: Really? We're still on this?
Well, Tram law brought it up again, and seeing that he is new here, we answered his questions again. After that, it's been really about the implementation on this site in the future, not about the current system, which I think nobody pays attention to anyways. Except perhaps the new guys, until we explain it to them.
