I like the new system, as it was implemented. It was too easy to aquire status before, by just voting.
I have only been posting for a month or so now, so I certainly don't deserve high rank yet.
I was just saying that voting is important as well. Some people were saying that it should be taken out entirely. I was merely stating my opinion on the matter, not condemning anyone elses.
Oh yeah, I meant to mention, I know that MY PERSONAL system of voting is guilty of favoritism towards those that I know, but not on purpose.
In this order, I read
1) Stuff people I chat with wrote
2) Newest Nodes
Just out of personal interest.
1) I want to know what my friends are up to
2) I want the news
3) I like to help
and that's pretty much the order that they occur to me in. I know that PERSONALLY I am guilty in that such a system causes me to have to reevaluate how I use my votes, since typically, I blow them all like a kid with change in his pocket (OOOHHH, that's funny, OOOH, that's smart), and then I run out of votes in the afternoon, after lunch and my coffee is all gone, when I am saying, "DOH! I wish that I could vote this up. I'll have to tommorow." And then tommorow comes, and I burn up my votes, and it repeats.
