As many have asked quite a few times of ow some have had millions of stars or flags... there was a glitch that could be exploited in te platform
change over to give such, I saw it but did not exploit it as some have.
Now of course such an exploit has slapped the face of the entire flag and star system.
Thats the history of it to make those unaware well aware, so on to the suggestion of how to clear it up if ATS and its owner(s) want to clear it
Since the new platform is in place, and it has been quite awhile since then... its quite possible to take such users that have the millions of star
and flag exploit from being banned as one claimed to have been by abusing the exploit... but multi accounts could mean tey came back abusing it yet
again or just lied about being banned for the glitch exploit.
In any case a way to restore its integrity, would be to take an average of the flags under similar topic but not the most popular of course to make an
avaerage for the flags of posts that that poster has made since the system has been stable in the change over.... the same could obviously occur in
their star count averages made since the change over stability and actually give both stars and flags a much closer representation, than the current
one than the exploit allows them to display for either abuse or accident.
Now of course this is a suggestion, and if its a popular one among the users and staff and owner(s) of course to make the stars and flags have some
semblence of meaning again without bans or an obscene amount due to tat change over in a fair way to normalize that system based on a mathmatical
system of averages... then perhaps it will happen?
Well its a suggestion and if its thought to make ATS better or fair as to the star flag system then why not?
Thanks all of those taking the time to read and comment... this is all I really need to say as its simply a suggestion, and not somthing I really need
to hang around and debate for or against so Ill just leave it as is and let democracy or the workers or owner(s) to of course choose... as Ive really
no idea how they function anyway except for being able to lose some for viloations making some glitchers untouchable to that system, or allow people
into the way above top secret or grey area threads.
So once again tanks for taking the time and concideration of the topic or suggestion at hand.
