I don't think anything will be flawless though. I see your point about people handing out a flag or star and not even commenting, makes sense. So maybe sides could be something like Pro-leaning pro-on the fence-leaning con-con or something? More simple? I am assuming you would be able to change your position to show you were swayed, and that would be reflected as well.

It seems the current line of thought with others is similar to yours, and I'm understanding more as to why. Perhaps stars can be dealt away with but it has been stated that flags help organize the more important threads. However, I usually go to new first and work my way backward to the last thread I looked at so I don't miss anything. It' nice to get views from those that have been here a long time because you have seen various things tried and tested. Thanks.

Yes, maybe a 24 hour timelimit to change your stance on a topic that first seemed wrong but later showed right or other way around, thereby you could also filter the top stories that have been debunked on page 2 and stays on top for 17 hours.

We used to have unflagging to take your own flag away. Guess it didn't work

What he means is his S&F count, it's not an amount he actually got from members, it was added during an update of the site, either by a flaw in the system or by reward from site owners for being a long time member.

Yes I'm one caught in the glitch. My flags seem about right but just look at my star count!

I asked yesterday how I suddenly got a yellow border.

You can still do that by clicking the flag again, though it has a very limited time, but i don't think many people know that.

This glitch seems to only affect long-standing members who have been around for a significant number of years. Coincedence? Shyeah right!

Stars are broken. Wats are broken. Karma is broken. There is a glitch in the system. If you look at the number of stars, wats and karma that people have, it's unreliable. Many accounts have been infected with the glitch. ATS Administration is aware of it. I do not know when/if it'll be fixed.

Flags and post count are accurate. Flags help determine which threads will make the ATS front page.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

I have noticed that the star count goes up significantly when a very old thread is brought back up. I am not a computer expert but it seems that the old threads being reposted in are a key to the glitch. One of my old threads was recently posted in and I noticed my star count suddenly raised by 10 million.

sometimes, we come by a thread or post that is so absurd, so full of it, so biased, or something that it actually should deserve something that reflects the opposite of a star or flag.


Every few months or so someone will suggest a negative system. In my opinion it wouldn't be good for ATS to go negative and it would 'turn off' people from posting and being themselves. If you don't like something then don't give it a star. If you don't like a thread then don't flag it. If it annoys you then ignore it. IMHO.

If you go to the list of members and click to arrange them in "star-count" order, you find that the first seven hundred or so have silly numbers of stars.
However, once you get down to the long-standing members with stars in the tens of thousands only, those are probably legitimate.

You can go to account and switch to desktop version...
That's if you want to see all the extra bits!


I prefer mobile to the web, because I don't have a computer

Name and avatar is all. But, if I switch it to desktop mode all the words overlap eachother. I have a note 3. That's a pretty big phone. I'm sure there's room.

I'm all for an up vote/down vote system like Disguise has.

Oh yes you're right. I clicked the flag to test and it unflagged. Tried to put it back but it said fail.

You tried to give it back too fast. If you refresh the page or wait a minute it will work again FYI.
