It would be similar to the old "Way Above Top Secret Award" but more detailed obviously.
Do you know why that ended?

If I remember it well it was for lack of participation, people voted at the beginning but the votes become less frequent and almost stopped, so the award was dropped.

Last thing we need is another popularity contest. Why not a beauty contest while you are at it?

I think SchroedingersDog hit the nail on the head. Everyone contributes in their own unique way and without all that diversity the site would be nothing. Picking and choosing individuals would just be diluting the impact of the whole.

Now, best and worst Mod ... hmmm that would be some evil contest.

If an idea like this were to happen, I think that it would be better for the members to nominate and vote for people, rather than the mods, but that's just me.

Though, I don't think this would work because, some people would get mad, pick up their ball, and go home.

Not being a fan of popularity contests in general (guess why
), I'll defer. I'm amazed how everything needs to be turned into some sort of competition. I'm hopeful I've found a place where the collaborative search for truth is more important than the recognition.

Let's just for fun see what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit.

And now having dropped the wet blanket, if that's the direction it's headed, I can shrug it off.

Despite my normal inclination to be morose, for some reason I suddenly have the desire to be uplifting.

Bring on the buffalo wings and I'll attend this banquet!
But, just remember, how some will react when they walk away from the table with egg on their face.

They’ll whine, play passive aggressive, get vindictive, ditch out, pout, act like children.
Wow, the fallout could be, well, let’s just say I know more than one person who would quit if the stars didn't go there way.
Seen it myself.
The writers, I mean the contributors who when they don’t get S&F, or feel like their little ego’s are taking a beating, feeling judged and left out, ya know, things like that, they take their toys and go home.

They ditch their friends - their projects - their commitments.
All for those shiny little blue stars.

So, hey, it might go over great - but when the wannabes loose, the fallout could be massive.

Isn't that what the Flag Contribution Level thingy is for?

I was thinking that worst posts of the year board/thread might be interesting, but then thought better of it, because people might start posting junk just to see of their post makes it there.

As far as judging Avatars goes, that is very subjective – mine, to many it may be annoying irritating, or just plain WTF, but to me, for now, I like it.

As for voting for favorite Mod, that would be interesting, however, being a popularity contest could swell the head of the winner or put the others in bad moods. If done properly only the top three would be shown, and you would not show which came in at the bottom.

If however this thing was done and done live online, how would you determine time it would be and which time zone to use, would a vote be taken, and would everyone necessarily agree on the outcome of that vote?

My ending thought is this, it would be unforeseeable what kind of impact this would have on the ATS community, “if it isn’t broken don’t try to fix it.”

I actually think that it might encourage people to write better, more in depth threads. It could lead to the quality on ATS becoming better I think.


Or people trying to relay dumb information trying to be the forum clown/idiot, flooding our threads with with they think will get them this prestigious award of telling the most funny joke. IDK about the sub categories imo

This years "NUTTIE" for "Best theory of why mankind has had no contact with an alien species while tying back the 9/11 theory as it relates to chemtrails and the reptile shadow government of Dubai as they time travel using STTPBD while avoiding the swime flu vaccine" goes to - (name with held for protective purposes - we'll call him PosterX ) .

PosterX: "I would like to thank all the little reptiles and thermite that made this "nuttie" possible."

I bet FOX would latch right on - as long as it is held on a Tuesday night.

We have flags, stars and contribution things, and the bronze silver and so on stuff.

and Applauses.

Now another thing?

Seems redundant.

I doubt they'd do it, they seems busy as is, mutter has been down for awhile, asking for more!

Plus, members who didn't make it may get mad and quit the site, losing revenue due to the ads.

Be pretty risky I'd say.

I like the idea, but don't think it'd work.



And those would be career stats and this would be the All-star game......

not really hard to comprehend....

Ok this has gone 3 pages now and not a squeak from Owners or Mods. So either they are on their own forum hooting it up at the picture representation depicted above or they all went out for sushi.

Edit to add SLAYER69 you kill me...am still laughing up tears. lol
