What's up?

Clarifications

It seems I can ask for Clarification, I have no thumbs either, makes it very difficult to pick up things.

You can't mark 'helpful', but you can select an answer as "the answer". Look at the left hand lower edge of each answer post.

    the thumbs she had are gone, and so are mine.
    Can you spare a thumb?
    I think you can give something by voting my answer in a + direction, if you and enough people vote in a - direction, my post will disappear.

    You can still read it by clicking the + symbol to expand the collapsed post... but we're hoping most people don't. That way, people who write ridiculous or offensive things will eventually be ignored.

    I may be in the minority, but ridiculous and (some) offensive things often crack me up. I'll most likely be viewing them. :^0

    I've been keeping HAL away from the Air Lock Controls as that is a fairly permanent solution that may not get the desired results.

    Actually I'm still trying to work out how to navigate this new site and make things work the way that I'm used to. Now all I have to work out is how to Subscribe to Threads that I have not made a post to. ?:|

    Are indeed gone. Now it looks like we have OH Smeg or Hal 9000 distributing them at an obscene rate!

    In all seriousness, our plan is to eventually offer "reputation points" based on the current Voting system... answering questions correctly will get you "x" amount of points. There will be some sort of tier system that grants privileges to folks the more points they accumulate.

    When we were creating the specs for this new system, we did talk about members who had a lot of thumbs and if they'll be compensated in some way when this new feature is rolled out. I can't promise anything, but perhaps...

    Hope that helps!

    The way your avatar crops, I have to say: someone seems to be unusually passionate about Rich Text Format :=)

    Where this response will end up, not being clear to me at the moment.

    What is clear, is that to Colin's Luigi, I will add my Guido. Somebody else I know may add her chainsaw.

    I've been keeping HAL away from the Air Lock Controls as that is a fairly permanent solution that may not get the desired results.

    Actually I'm still trying to work out how to navigate this new site and make things work the way that I'm used to. Now all I have to work out is how to Subscribe to Threads that I have not made a post to. ?:|

    What's that in this bucket here? Ew... a huge pile of thumbs with points sticking out of them.

    Are indeed gone. Now it looks like we have OH Smeg or Hal 9000 distributing them at an obscene rate!

    In all seriousness, our plan is to eventually offer "reputation points" based on the current Voting system... answering questions correctly will get you "x" amount of points. There will be some sort of tier system that grants privileges to folks the more points they accumulate.

    When we were creating the specs for this new system, we did talk about members who had a lot of thumbs and if they'll be compensated in some way when this new feature is rolled out. I can't promise anything, but perhaps...

    Hope that helps!

    Hmmm. Justin posted earlier that he had been able to vote up or down his own posts in Discussions. Interesting.
