I just did a search and I did'nt find anything on this question. What I would like to know is are applause awarded purely at Mods discretion or are there guidelines issued by the site Admins as to the circumstances under which applause can be awarded.

Kind regards

they are stingy - unless it is a particular viewpoint they want to promote

command and control - even information

I think you have just blown any chance of getting any applause on this thread

Do you have any info to back up this allegation? Because that's what that is.

You can get a Mod applause if you;

1. Buy them on EBay
2. Rub soothing balm on a mods cyber implants.
3. Post any picture of Shakira.
4. Beat Intrepid at arm wrestling
5. Let any mod have the last egg roll when we all go out for Chinese

Doubt it...


The only thing I have received applause for was helping in one of the last ATS games, which there needs to be another of.(hint)

You are putting the onus of proof upon me to show your actions? Funny that, I am unable to applaud threads so my actions aren't in question but since you ask for proof of my allegation then perhaps you can show us your last 10 applauds - in fact show us the last 10 applauds by all mods.

But of course you won't... in fact I suspect you will delete this post and ban me rather than be called out for what is apparent bias towards a particular viewpoint.

Prove me wrong or prove me right as the onus of justification for applauds by mods falls upon mods not those who question the criteria used to promote a particular poster over another.

I suspect this will be my last post here as truth hurts those who seek to hide it...

Your reaction and accusations are SILLY.

Applause is left to staff discretion, which means I will only applaud content that I find interesting or well researched or whatever other reason.

So yes, I only applaud things that I think are worthy of applause. That does not mean I have members I won't applause when they come out with quality content.


The applause system is NO different than the flag system. The only difference is that staff award points, 500 to be exact to content that WE find inspiring and overall good.

Applause does absolutely NOTHING to help a post or a thread get attention. The only people who know what posts got applauded are the staff member who awarded it, and the member who received it.

So I fail to see, how your accusation even makes sense.

not butthurt at all ... taking the defensive position by belittling my opinion without showing us the proof seems a little lame don't you think?

What criteria do you use?

Playing favorites and forming cliques of "accepted" opinion seems to speak for itself - unless you are willing to show us who and where applause is handed out that is.

Is asking to see what is deemed applaud worthy a threat to you all that you resort to calling me butthurt?

I'm not expecting any of you to show and prove it... actions speak louder than words

When you get the U2U saying you were applauded by a MOD you feel pride. I am a newbie here, so to me, it was a "I got that right" moment.

When I say "I got that right" I mean that I fulfilled the purpose of ATS. That I said something thought provoking or even presented an alternative viewpoint without instigating a fight.

I take it as a high five..

And it feels good.

The two times I recieved applause, I had a well constructed theory with proof of where I got my theory on a subject. I included pics, links and a paragraph stating my thoughts.

Hang in there. Find something you are passionate about, and do some research on the topic. It will come!

dont get frustrated...ATS is one big learning opportunity.
