While I see what your getting at, and agree with some of it, I think this is the greatest asset of this new bar. For the obvious reasons. Now, as a
member, we are forced to actually read the posts of members and decide their worth. In my days as a member, I was lucky enough to receive enough
Applauses to break the old post bar. I mean, I don't kid myself for a second to think I'm in the same realm as half of this board when it comes to
worthy posts. I read some of the material from new members with a glowing gray bar, and a lot of it goes unnoticed. I think some members may pass
over a post or two, because the member is supporting a miniscule gray bar. With this new one, we are on one level and everyone is an equal. Our
posts speak for themselves, and the bar will not speak for ourselves anymore.
I think Applauses! are a form of reinforcement, not a determining factor for some mythological "ATS hierarchy".
And we can not overlook what is most important.

I know personally, my browser was having some problems viewing ATS. Once or twice I x'd out and walked away for a few minutes because it frustrates
me. Considering this new upgrade is going to drastically enhance the board output, how can we possibly disagree with that?
I've noticed a big difference myself.
And to show that I am capable of having an opinion of my own, not just agreeing with everything that the Admin do, I will say that I did prefer the
old red titles. I prefer the old titles, but I happen to like the new post bar.
