Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here it goes anyway:
I`ve run several foruns in the last years and I still run a very small one on general subjects, just for friends and friends of friends, so I`m not a
newbie with these kind of things, but I`m not trying to teach you anything either as ATS is far much better than the place I run, so this is just a
I`ve been penalized more than once just because I replied with a short statement. I understand you want to promote people to elaborate more when they
reply to a thread or post, but you have to agree with me that many times a short statment says a lot more than an elaborated answer.
On the other side you have the Flags & Stars rating system which I think it`s great. I don`t have this system at my forum but I do have a rating
system that NOT ONLY allow members to APPLAUSE others for their topics and posts BUT ALSO to REPUDIATE it through a NEGATIVE evaluation/point.
I bet this would make some think a bit before they post such ridiculous/crap/BS/lies... stuff just trying to get a few more flags and stars and I
think it would help to expose trolls as well.
So my suggestion is that you have a negative evaluation of topics and posts as well.
