This makes no sense at all. No Flag for you!

I guarantee there are members that value them.


Well what's it got to do with you? Nothing.

The topic has been addressed. Thread closed!

Giving stars and flags is an expression of agreement, acknowledgement.

Limiting that would be an infringement of individual freedom.

ATS isn't government, they can do this.

But I would guess ATS leans more towards freedom than oppression.

Going back to user-generated content. Stars and flags give a bit of an incentive I suppose. It keeps the site going.

You know, if they gave stars instead of cookies every time I made a complaint or alert, I'd do it a lot more!

But since it's only cookies, I just stay away from those.

I'd prefer to term it as intelligent application.

And another reason why your "solution" is disliked--

Think of every trendy gaming app that limits its features until you spend some cash. It's a scam.

Do you think ATS is going to start charging people for unlimited posting? Starring? Flagging? etc.?

Please, don't even give SkepticO that idea!!!

Intelligent application.

Who judges it then?

you went there not me.

I would drop from ATS in 1-2 seconds flat if a donation system that determined viewable posts ever came into effect.

I do forget at times ATS is a small self-regulated community, but sometimes so do the members.

I don't even know what you're talking about anymore.

You seem to just be attacking people against this idea with thinly-veiled insults.

Any time a thread comes along about the star system...

I can't help but think about Sneetches.

Anyone? Anyone?

Also, now let's put it this way, this thread is now 2 pages long. You say it means nothing? Well it obviously does or you wouldn't be here,

So, why do we care about these flags and stars?

We do, if we didn't, my thread would have zero replies. But we do, we are human, and we care about stuff.

So I care a bit about ATS.


Seeing the replies since edit...

Intellectual, OMG that's a bad word. I like to converse and debate with intelligent people, is that so bad?

Many times (as phage has proven) I'll sound only half as smart as I think I am, and realize it right then. on the other side there are people who spout off ridiculous nonsense (yes I get the irony right now) and come back for more.

ehh nevermind. I had a good conversation for this but now I don't.

Cheers ats

Out of curiosity, I have a question.

In your personal opinion, what would be a good 'per day' limit?

I don't care about stars or flags. Alot of the stuff u say many wouldn't agree with. I say it because that is the point of this site. Sometimes I change some minds, sometimes someone changes mine. It's a beautiful thing recognizing someone can make you more intelligent.

1 flag 1 star per day to start. Over time this would be increased.

I never recommended removing posting rights, that would obviously exist, just how many things you can "agree" with.

Yeah! Get outta here if you ain't got no intelligentness like the rest of us! What's your IQ anyway! That divided by 8 is the number of posts you get to post in a day!

Why would anyone be scared of me?

If you can answer that, then you'd really be scared


Anyway looks like you're the one who chased him off. And I've posted my limit and starred all my stars for the day. See ya tomorrow!
