I would like to believe that we are mature enough to handle the system, but that's what I said last time. Maybe it's best to just not go there.

I'm going to agree with not going there.

The only way I'd possibly support it is if it used a non-alphanumeric form of measurement that didn't measure anything at all.  Like, it would sometimes display "fish", and sometimes "banana".

But as that's convoluted and simply an exercise in comedic nonsense, let's just avoid something that's caused drama.  Twice now.  Or three times, I forget.

I just find it perpetually wonderful that people gave a damn about those little numbers

Pretty sure it was the possible intent behind those numbers rather than the numbers themselves.

That being said, humanity has cared about arbitrary numbers ever since we've had numbers.

Yes, please, let's actually learn from the lessons of the past, this time.  Because if someone isn't spamming smites/exalts to stir up bullshit, its people using those same numbers as a basis for entire bullshit threads bitching when one member gets a high number of negatives.  Or positives.

Keiro and Nap were, to put it bluntly, fucking morons when they brought it back last time.

Me too, me too.

Though, maybe we should bring it back, the drama it caused was kind of hilarious...

What about where you can give approvals or exalts to particular posts.  I've seen elsewhere where if someone posts something that's a good point or funny or what have you, someone can click an icon and it says below the post "_____ Likes this post."  Something like that, anyway.

You wouldn't be approving of the particular person as much as you'd be agreeing with what they said.

This can still lead to trolling with people simply liking every post a particular poster makes.

Can't be implemented with the current system, and I'd rather not mess around with the forum software to see if it can be done.

If you liked someone's post, simply post on the thread saying so (ideally giving a reason why).


In other news, I've removed the chewtoy rule, given that it was ultimately redundant.

...A bunch of people really wanted it. There was a poll on it & everything. It's not like Napoleon, or even Keiro were really gung-ho for it.

Hm. I might be responsible for some of Queen's Fuck No spam. I think there was a period that I just Fuck No'd every post I liked.

Not to mention, Nappy specifically brought it back as a joke. I recall Nappy and Vene smiting each other like crazy for the lulz. If anything, I think Distind's the dumbass for keeping the system going 9 months or so after it was voted (overwhelmingly) to be scrapped because of the first bout of "people are mean to Cait" butthurt-extravaganza. Of course, I think he just kept the DRAMA system to stroke his ego. If only cause Distind's shown himself to be conceited and selfish.

Yeah I rarely do a lot of misspells, but I do go on the chain-of-thought rail sometimes.
