If you earn enough flags, you then are able to enter and contribute to the RATS forum. I don't want to anger people or encur the wrath of the
To me, it puts pressure on those who want to read and contribute in the RATs forum to strive to earn flags. How do you earn flags? Create
threads...ok, so what if you've nothing to create a thread about, but plenty to say or contribute in response to other threads?
People might start to make up stuff. just to get those much covetted flags..I mean, if you an't got nothing then you ain't got nothing, it doesn't
detract from your ability to contribute to other threads.
How's it a conspiracy? I think it's a purposeful ploy used to generate more content and substance, but most of it is kinda silly, a lot of
interesting stuff on this site but so much whack to trudge through in order to find it...including some of my own threads. I don't lie, I just ain't
had that many experiences to share and shan't be fabricating any...but I wanna see the RATS forum, I wanna see just how hardcore and outlandish some
of the threads are. At least let us look...how about a system where those without enough flags/credibility can read and respond to threads...or even
just read them, but can't create threads in RATS?
I ain't ever gonna get in RATS, I've resigned to that notion, so I wanna donate all my flags to someone if that's possible...not that I have many.
Anyone want some flags? If it's allowed, I'll give em to whoever posts the best response to this thread. The flags or any other type of points
system creates a heirarchy, those with more flags get more out of ATS, but at what cost? I'm looking at this situation, really want to read cool,
interesting threads...really wanna see RATS but it's never gonna happen cos there's no way I;ll notch up enough flags to do so...it's quite a
So I kinda feel the flags I do have are wasted on me...I don't want them, don't need them. All patrons should have access to all areas of ATS...it
really bugs me, am I the only one?
Sorry if I'm being rude.
