What about the one word reply thread.  If that keeps gooing, and it doesn't seem like it's going to stop (for reasons I'll never understand), anybody could jump in and have 50 posts
in less than 5 minutes.  Just a thought.  Me likes the no change moniker name either...childish, and useless.  Who would you really be pissing off?
And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why. He said "You look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do.  So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..

Sadly, I have lost my ability to effect change here... ;)

I like the safeguards, miss my ability to commend folks (I don't know who the trolls are really...I just don't pay enough attention, dammit!!), and hope the whole thing goes well.  Like I said, I like positive reinforcement.

I also like that everyone's reps seem to have come back into line (instead of the -7 I saw on J.J.'s moniker) with pre-troll activity.

Otherwise, commend/defame on!

I may be a bit more active, now, in an attempt to regain my ability to vote, but I promise to do so in a helpful, constructive manner.  Scouts honor (though I'm not a boy and I've never been a scout, so that may be a bit unreliable ;D).

Unfortunately I think the commending may turn into a popularity contest... Also, what about the people who should have been commended for their help over the year? (Like me and others)

What about leaving the one hour time period to defame/commend but you have to give up a tally from the # of posts for the # of defame/commend.  Or maybe have a 3rd tally equivalent to the # of posts so when you subtract from it, the # of posts still stays true to the #.

Okay - so if we increase the posts needed to being voting (say 100?) and increase the time between votes (say 3 hours?) we should have a pretty good system.

There will be lots of unjust defaming and commending, but these are matters of opinion.  Someone that really hates me might log in every 3 hours to defame me, but someone that likes me can do the same.  Over time a reputation will develop.  We're working with small numbers right now so it's easy to move things in one direction or another.

I think it is a good idea. I haven't seen a lot of trolling on this side of the board, but it hopefully would discourage that and encourage people to help others.

How do you add/subtract from reputations?

Wow - I had no idea this was the case "on this side" of the board. 

How is the system working out?

Are we sure that old posts aren't now rendedered with the buttons on there?  In other words, if you were helpful in old posts aren't you still eligible by new readers?

One thing that I havne't noticed mentioned is the ability to ignore readers under a certain reputation.  For example, what if I want to ignore posters with a rep of -8 and under.  Is this possible?

My first post to this board. I've been "lurking" for some time and enjoying several discussions. Just trying to get a feel for how this operates  ;D ! HELLO LSD!!!!!!!!!
