Crazy like a troll?
I *like* reading Worst Nodes as a mix of learning from the
mistakes of others and cheap laughs, but I think it's an
abuse of voting to simply -- everything you see in that list,
just as it is silly to ++ everything in Best Nodes.
More importantly, do people really get that upset if they are listed
in Worst? The Exp system is a good (though certainly not
ideal) system to quickly estimate the utility of individual
posts, but it ain't a game, and there are no prizes folks! This will
only continue to work if people use their votes honestly and wisely
(e.g. there is no need to use all your votes each day etc.). I know
this is all old news to most of you, but I've figured it out
after my few weeks here and think that the purpose of voting and Exp
should be pretty clear to all before they get to vote in the first place.
On the other hand, I'm new here and may have misinterpreted the
whole thing - fire away!
Now here's a semi-related thought: could the SuperSearch optionally sort
by Exp (without reporting the actual values) to extract more value from
the Exp system?
