I'll ++ that. ;)

I do understand where you're going. But the fact that 'saint' just became more than three times harder to reach, vote inflation isn't such an issue (under the newly proposed system).

Besides, if you stop ++'ing my nodes how am I ever going to reach level vroom? (just kidding).

Let's comprimise in our little world of two opinions. Knock saints down to 30-35 votes, not 20. There really are a few of those days where I find a lot of good things to vote on. I hate it when, on one of those days, there's that one additional node that deserves a positive vote, and I'm out because I got really interested in some other discussion earlier and spent all my votes there. 40 is a lot, but dropping down to 20 seems a little extreme.

    Well, the thing Is I want people to view their votes as a miser views his money. Extremely conservatively. The only way I can conceive of influencing peoples behaviour in this regard is to reduce the number of votes they have. 20 is a lot, more than enough. But I guess since we would have 20 levels it would probably be easier to use 30 or maybe 32 votes so that at some levels people get more than 2 more votes. The other thing I think is that this change should in some way or another impact everyone. For instance my level and XP here mean the current proposals would leave me unchanged. I could see some arguing that that is unfair. At the very least take away some of my votes. :-)

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
