Lady V anyone can vote
there is more about it in SO posts


Contributors: You are the source of material. Your quick work locating important stories and creating submissions will be the core of ATSNN.

Experts: These are contributors who have had 75 upgraded submissions (it used to be 25, now it's 75). New code will scour the history of ATSNN an ensure all contributors are awarded the correct number of submissions since the start of ATSNN... so that means many of you are already experts.

Moderators: The ATSNN forum will now have a moderator staff just like any other forum. However, their job is to keep the peace in the discussion threads, not manage submissions.

Administration: Me, Bob88, William One Sac and SimonGray. We can immediately upgrade submissions and other aspects of controlling submission problems.


The voting system will standardize on 15 yes votes to upgrade to an ATSNN story, and 10 no votes to downgrade out of the ATSNN forum.

A vote by a contributor is equal to 1 vote for both yes and no.

A vote by an expert will equal 2 votes for both yes and no.

And a vote by an Administrator will equal 5 votes for both yes and no.

I'm a noncontributing sloth.

I think if you submit too many it will go back to zero again...
You overloaded the news-counter...



Myself, I have 27. Still far to go to get 75...

Your new ATSNN status is calculated when you visit the ATSNN forum.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

It only takes one visit to initiate the calculation, and you'll get your total approved submissions at the top of the page.


Just for those who look at the last page first.

What about submissions that don't get enough votes either way? Do these submissions stay submissions or will staff make a decision to upgrade or not after a certain period of time?

I'm concerned that news that should be posted immediately not 3 days later, will make ATSNN look like they are behind in posting.

For example, I submitted a news article about the first lady going to Afghanestan a few days ago. Now if someone goes and votes yes and it's upgrade, it will be old news.

Old news, yes. But they will still have a timestamp showing the time and date you originally submitted the news. Just a shame that nobody will see it on ATSNN before it is old news. Members can see them as submissions if they do some digging, but non-members will never see them before they are upgraded...


EDIT: stupid typo again...

Your profile shows 115, and Val's is also over 100.

So... even though the code may have showed 0, your account was updated correctly.

All members and staff can vote.
On ATSNN where the avatar would be there is a place to vote yes or no.

Hope that helps.
