Schrodinger:I´d agree that points should be deducted if someone creates the 10th thread on a current topic.

St.Udio: My post is just a reminder on what everyone already knows anyway.

This is fabulous, Sky!!

You've quite well summed up what I think a lot of people have been thinking, but couldn't quite put into coherent thought long enough to type it out.

You've also given me a whole heck of a lot to ponder.....thanks!!

Definition of Quality-on-ATS: Posts that are well-researched, well-sourced, entertaining, helpful or revealing something new. Respectful Behaviour towars others

You can help to improve quality at ATS with the following measures:

1. Instead of Complaining about bad quality, post good quality yourself or refrain from comment.

Its a fact that most threads that we term "bad quality" are promoted and "bumped" by the people complaining about them. Someone posts something lousy and then you have 20 people responding What a lousy thread!...and this is what lets that lousy thread become more popular, make the ATS front page and gain a lot of attention and momentum.

2. It is a fact that some of the worst threads of the most replies, and some of the best threads the least replies.

Its basically a waste of time to create threads about how bad other members are, how bad a certain thread is, how bad ATS is. If you want to see it any better, you have to do it yourself - because this place is created by the users.

3. Support Quality Threads

4. One problem with well-researched threads that deliver clear answers is that there´s not much to discuss. These threads are more for reading than for responding to. But they have to be supported nevertheless, so that as many people as possible get to read them. If you see a high quality thread that does not incite much discussion, you can "bump" it, by adding to the information provided by the OP (links, more info) or asking questions towards the OP.



Thank you Skyfloating for making most of my points valid


The following are my answers to the points:

Point 1.

I didn't say it was bad content. All I said is I think it would improve it to a certain segment, of which I see you may not be a part. You obviously take my thread as an attack, and I think you have been influenced by opinions formed from viewing other content I have posted. I would like to vote it as prejudicial but can't.


Point 2.

Right...So why can't we vote those down by not voting for them.

Point 3.

Again you make my point for me thank you.

Point 4.

I agree, and I will support good replies or threads by voting for the ones I feel are the best. If you don't like my vote, compare it with how others have voted, and maybe it is you that are way off base on your beliefs.

I dont recall having spoken to you yet or read any of your threads yet, so this thread was not referring to anything you did or didnt do.

My apologies, maybe it was bumped back up by someone trying to make a point. After all that is the first mistake I have ever made.

Look at the time stamp on my thread. It was made before you made yours. So this thread cant possibly be a response to your thread.

Anyway...I´ll respond to your thread when I have some extra time.

Skyfloating without knowing why, you are brilliant...Now try to figure out why I would vote for your reply as most nonsensical, or the poster has misunderstood.
