While I truly appreciate the accolades that stem from a post when deserved, this is absolutely ridiculous.
At the writing of this thread I have garnered 119 stars...the exact amount as the OP of a great thread. The thread was well laid out, informative,
interesting and educational.
My post was 2 lines.
My point here is that we as a membership are getting too star happy in our posts.
Personally, I have written many threads that took many hours to construct with little to nothing of acknowledgement as have many other great
contributors here. (Not saying I'm great myself) And then when I post a 2 line response to such a great thread I am starred 150 times. The same as the
author who went to all the work to form the thread. This isn't right at all.
Please people, take a look at what you are rewarding because those most popular threads end up on the front page for all the World to see. Even if you
are not fully versed in the subject matter but realize it's well written, researched and laid out, star and flag the hell out of it. It's the only way
to bring intelligence and knowledge to the fore front.
While I truly appreciate the 150 stars, I didn't deserve it and most certainly didn't deserve the exact amount as the OP. I actually feel that the OP
was robbed of his contribution.
In fact, if the mods have the ability to transfer my 150 stars to Sublimecraft and give that member a total of 238 stars on the thread
I would have no issue with it whatsoever because it is fully deserved.
