And the being a girl comment.. never heard so much bs.. the majority of people with the most flags and stars are male.. so kinda blows that theory out of the water..


I've seem females, countless times, make asinine posts or little quips and collect a horde of stars. I use levity or make sarcastic comments about 90% of the time and am never rewarded (although being a Mason hurts too).
It's not because there's something wrong with what the females are doing, it's just many guys on here are pathetic and give stars to her for her avatar or name.

PS I gave you a star for your avatar and name. I'm just oh so smitten.

I have a great idea, I just dont give a crap about other people or their opinions. To busy in my own world if that makes sense?

Hey man, why so selfish?

Can't we be part of your world too, or at least some of us? I didn't go through 7 years of college to be denied by some internet zombie.

O you could scan the news papers and be the first to report a story no one on ATS has seen before. >Sometimes I am lucky enough to do that because ATS is not my only news source. I think they are trying to expose members to alternate points of view and interesting news. It isn't a conspiracy against people who post worthwhile stuff. This isn't the thread for The Goonies is it?

HA! Wow. I didn't expect this to garner any attention at all. I was bored and thought I'd write a funny thread to pass the time and vent a little. First time I've had a thread show up on the home page


Glad most people didn't take it too seriously

Anyway have a sneaky suspicion the real reason of this thread is just to gain stars and flags anyway

Wait, are people denying that girls get more attention on internet forums? This is obviously true...I've never seen a girl who didn't have some level of popularity...

It's not that you're going to automatically be the most popular person. But you will automatically get a decent amount of people liking your stuff...cuzzzz idk, I guess guys think they're gentlement if they like what girls say? lol.

This is obviously true...plz deny ignorance. k?thx

I would prefer we just have a post count and stars/flags were kept private. I think we would see more honest opinions personally. I dislike that the star system seems based around agreeing with people and not what they actually have said.


Great idea. This "system" is new to me as a new member. How would one go about making this suggestion? If "we" all send an email to the owner could this become a possibility?


Not a possibility. People whine about the stars and flags incessantly. If you want you can go to Board Business and Questions and make a post. It will get maybe 15 replies, then be closed. It comes up a lot.

I just ignore the metrics unless someone is posting like a dumbass and then I'll check how many posts they have/when they joined. Stars don't mean anything and the people that only read the most starred posts per page are fools.

Can I get a star cause my "buttons" look kinda like different colored nipples with writing on them?

Can I even say nipples freely on ATS? Serious question I am a newbie.

You have to have a certain amount of stars to say nipples on ATS without getting banned. I got my nipple star last week so I'm OK.

I enjoy the star system. Takes me back to my youth.
