Dear God everyone, just leave them alone.

For heavens sake let them run their forum.

The Three Amigos need to take their forum back.

Just stop.

Way Above Top Secret.

it was a monthly award voted on by members to show appreciation to one another for contributions. It worked on individual posts and not threads themselves. Members were given a certain number of votes and could use them on any other member to show that their contribution was really Denying Ignorance.

The problem was that with the rise of traffic, the end result was a massive tie between loads of people with no clear winner at the end of the month.

Anyone else see it besides me?

The ATS community fragmenting into sections and cliques of "haves" and "havenots" "whiners" "malcontents" contrasted by the "get over it"
group.

I doubt this is what the administration had in mind with their "thank you" method of ranking but it sure is what has happened.

Sad really............

I see it Whaaa, and I knew it was coming. That is what happens when you label and give out goodies. Everyone puts their hands out for more, works harder for you, or walks away from the injustice. Some people refuse to play the game and fold.

As of this post, this issue has generated 2,465 replies. Is it settled yet? Have we reached the concesus point? Probably not. I don't know what ATS was like 2 months ago. I joined at the end of April, one week later there were updates and changes. Now, more changes and lots of opposing points of view. Whatever is going on behind the scenes is causing lots of energy to be directed toward an issue that should not even be an issue. Strange really.

This forum is a virtual communication vehicle which I found interesting and informative. So what if I'm new, I still have a brain and some valid points to express. Whether or not the majority of readers agree is irrelevant to my intention. Having a scoring system is fine. That's how real life is too. We score each other privately and often aren't aware we are doing it.

Oh look.. Now the flag contribution thingee has changed again.. instead of red I am now blue...

yaaaaa...


LOL


What the heck are you guys doing?

Pick something already! hahahaha

EDIT for Hazelnut

No up until recently this point system was pretty consistent. Oh we had minor changes every now and again but nothing like the last few weeks...

in the last few weeks its like someone slipped some cid into the amigos drinks and now they can not make up their minds about what they'd like to do for us and their site.

Bear with em. I am sure more changes are coming soon.

You'll no doubt note that this thread was started over a year ago as a catch-all for ALL ATS issues. The latest debates are but a drop in the bucket of this thread.

Dang! I could just ignore you and your common sense but, but, but. Thanks for pointing it out, I was ignorant. But. Nevermind.

OK, question. Just to save some time, on what page of this thread do they describe how the latest incarnation of all this works? 124 pages is a lot to read through for anyone ...

It's because it looked like a warn flag to someone. They were shocked to see it. And it did look like a warn flag.

MAKE IT GREEN GUYS!
I like green. The blue is dark and hard to see, everyone can see green.

Thanks guys, I wonder what the bar is for? It is kinda crazy that very likely SO himself his watching this thread and judging responses of it and tweaking the system, lol, we are being observed.

How many flags does one need before their flag contribution line gets some color?
