The entire concept of being somehow able to award points, implying merit or worth of the various posts, based on word count, length of post, etc... Or my personal favorite NUMBER OF POSTS... Is really rather ludicrous.


The fact that the tallying routines don't seem to be working properly at the moment only really serves to underline it.

It's all part of the entertainment factor!


Can I 'vote' to keep it exactly as is? I'm highly (and easily
) entertained!

The rather subjective measure of quality is demonstrated by the "redness" of the post bar (the length of which indicates the number of posts). As the number of "Staff Applause" increases, the "redder" the bar will become. Since the "Applause" function is instituted by humans (and one monkey), there is room for some dissent on the appropriateness of someone's bar intensity, but does it really matter?

Do you really think the staff would have bias or preferences regarding a posts content?


Applause Monkeys, not just for posts with banana references anymore...
