personaly, i think it is unfair and biased that a supermoderator can flag a thread as many times as they want, but hey what can we do right? after all. they run the site.

As to tracking flags, I know that you USED to do it... because there was a "Threads I flagged" list on profile. Seems that is now gone... but I know it was there...
Considering how my memory is, I can't say that's wrong. There may indeed still be some means of tracking/identifying flags, and perhaps stars as well.
Something does, after all, keep us from just continually adding more stars and flags to threads without limit, though admittedly I'm not sure exactly how that is handled. So when I say I doubt that kind of detail is stored, that doesn't mean it isn't, just that I doubt it, and I have been known to be wrong every now and then -- and sometimes a lot.

I tend to think there are a lot more people that read, star and flag, but don't post much. How else would ATS be able to pay the bills? The people posting regularly couldn't be bringing in enough money to pay the bills I don't think. Of course I could be wrong, but it doesn't sound reasonable to me.

I don't like the idea of that. Then you could put together databases on who likes what topics, who stars whom the most etc.. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The system seems to be working perfectly fine right now.
