I find that interesting how some can see that.
All i see is this,
Big group of negative rating people, some to the point where they actually don´t give a f*ck and actually try to chase downvotes.
Big group (including myself) that has probably 75% of their votes being "i agree" upvotes.
Big threads which acts as a upvote heaven. Need upvotes? Go post images of time attack cars or engines.
Give it a month and you too can fool new people into thinking you are a direct descendant of Einstein himself.
Big discussions where the voting factor is determined by how many people agree on either side of the fence which results in one person getting lots of upvotes and the other gets bombed. (even though the bombed guy might be right)
Another way to solve things like other forums does is to simply have a moderator that´s managing the idiots that are reported through the flag system.
If he can´t do all of the work, get one more onboard.
I think that if there´s one thing that will drag this forum to the ground it´s the voting system.
The fact that you now have plans to make it even more complex and stupid is baffling.
