in reply to A Proposal for Additional Levels

An idea to go with this would be to only recieve votes on the days you login, and then let votes accumulate. So if i login everyday but don't spend them everyday they carry over. Then lower the number I get everyday. It encourages me to come everyday, and to save up my votes instead of wasting them. You could also cap the number of votes a user could store based on their level.

    You mean, it encourages everyone to put a one line WWW::Mechanize script in their crontab?

      As apposed to now? When they can have a similar vote bot? I mean realy, that reply contributed nothing.

      If votes were doled out and hit a max, say at my level you get 3 votes a day, and can store a max of 30 votes. That pretty much limits the utility of your crontab script. Any way the current system encourages people to spend votes for no reason (like as read markers) where if I only had 3 a day I would not use them in that manner.
