I swear there used to be the option for giving posts stars while in the HOAX forum, but not now?

No flags is fair enough, but stars are surely still usefull?

If not just for recognising the member or members who expose the hoax.

I say bring stars back!

I would give you a star for this, it deserves one IMO ... but alas, it is the same in this forum too.

I found this thread quite cute. I wish I could hand out stars for you all.

But in all seriousness, hasn't anyone provided an explanation? I cannot find any, but then again, I am new around here.

I don't see how it would be flogging a dead horse, I see it as rewarding those that "deny ignorance" as cliched as that sounds.

If you are denying ignorance the joy of sending a thread to the bin should be enough

Are you trying to save a princess or something, do you need them?

Ooohhh i see you remove the reward us part

I think Hoax is meant to be where stupid things go to die, not where stars encourage more life into the terminal patient.

Poor things need to Rest In Peace.

I don't know how it is, but it would actually be nice if stars from a thread get DEDUCTED again once it lands in the hoax forum.

Prime example is a really, really stupid post by someone posted a few days ago with people wondering how the poster got so many stars.

To me it seems some people are "collecting" stars, regardless how silly/moronic their threads are..and then garbage gets posted and no one goes through the effort to even check the validity of what has been posted. (aka: grabbing some nonsense from YT which has already been proven a hoax months/years ago. It's a waste of time, it's annoying..and people should not get "rewarded" for such. Therefore I hope initial given stars/flags etc. get taken off once a thread ends up in the hoax bin.

Um I didn't remove anything like that, I removed my attempt at writing dead with a slash through it.

As in dead sleeping horse, an attempt to mesh with the current theme of the thread..


Googled it.

Fair point, but as you know, they don't always die a silent death.

Googled it.

I just checked with (2) veterinarians. The horse is now dead. (their opinions after seeing the pic)

*sigh*

How many times do we have to explain? There are no stars because the exposure levels are too low for stars to appear.

generally a so called proven hoax, is insignificant before the power of a yt video
