Staff Members, FSME's, Council etc. are capable of rewarding members with an Applause for posts that stand out. Of course this comes with a
point bonus and the more you recieve the more red you will see in your post bar. Every 10 Applauses I believe you jump to the next redness
Well what we the Members have is WATS. (Way Above Top Secret)
When you come across a post, or a poster, that is putting up work that you really appreciate, you can award that member a WATS vote. You have three a
month I believe, and can only vote for a member once each month. At the end of each month we have a WATS winner who supports the Award.
At the end of each year all WATS votes are tallied and the staff announces the WATS award for the year.
Seekerof & Valhall are two members I know have won the yearly WATS award. Not sure who won it for 2005 though.
So next time you read a post that made you think, Man! That was good! Give that WATS button a click and reward them for their effort. Most
times the member is not aware of the vote for themself, but other times a u2u is sent or members simply say inside the thread.
