To the naysayers:

Status is always most important to those without any.

This is from SkepticOverlord:

The "WATS Index" is calculated as: ((FLAGS x 5) x STARS)/1000000.

www.abovetopsecret.com...
I plugged my numbers into it though and didnt get the WATS I have so.....


If the top 100 posters was based on the "wats index" then I would be in the top 50..

If it was based on stars then the same thing..

If it was based on flags then some shouldn't be in the position they are..

It's very vague and it seems admin don't wish to spell out the criteria..
I honestly find that disconcerting seing as how many mods have already posted in this thread..

What are they scared of telling us??

Hmmm... I think it's actually most important to the ones who have it.

Members in the top-100 rankings, just below the "Way Above Top Secret" group, have a "SILVER CONTRIBUTOR" indication.


Any chance we will get a top 50 Silver Contributor list, much like the existing "W" list for the Gold Contributors?

BTW, Thanks for bringing back the contribution level indicator, many of us have missed it.

What is your problem?

You're pissy about a different coloured border on a few peoples posts?

Seriously, grow up.

And as an aside, I couldn't care less about having it there, and I can guarantee that almost all those that have this "title" couldn't care less either.

What's my problem? My problem is that this site is turning into the very thing it came to despise. Freedom of speech is not so much freedom of speech in this site. And now we will even have different classes of members.

It's not about YOU caring. It's about equality. Isn't that what we strive for here on ATS?

Um actually no. I have never cared about stars, flags or anything like that. I care about the content.

I think it's cool yes but it's not like I am all "omg look at me," I am proud of my contribution on ATS. Its like my second home

There never was freedom of speech here, so to speak.

We are guests on a privately owned website and we play by their rules.

I also don't see how giving recognition to members who have been recognised by their peers constitutes stifling freedom of speech?

They use to have these contribution levels below your avy, then they went away. So it's not like they didn't have them before.

I think those were here when I first joined or shortly after.

They have had a few different contribution level things on here since I joined. They get revamped here and there it seems.

And what is ATS turning into now that it supposedly used to despise? Tell me how ATS thinks...



Freedom of speech is not so much freedom of speech in this site.


Freedom of speech is a specific right of the people to speak without the interference of government. Can you explain how that applies to ATS, an internet forum? ATS is not a government nor is it a democracy nor even a representative republic. It's a privately-owned website with rules made by the owners. It is a dictatorship. You are a guest here. If you don't like the rules, you don't have to participate. Believe me, there are plenty of rules that I don't like. But I am free to leave. This is not my home. I do not make the rules.

There are subjects we cannot discuss (read the T&C). If you expect Free Speech on ATS, it is your mistake for doing so.



And now we will even have different classes of members.


There are no different classes of members. We are all members. Some are staff, some are administrators, some are members.



It's not about caring. It's about equality. Isn't that what we strive for here on ATS?


People are equal. Content is not.

As others have said, these little bands of color seem to be extremely important only to those who don't have them. It means diddly to me.
