One more solution to personality voting..

This thread is interesting to me because we are contemplating using this software to start up another type of community.

Why not do away with the -- voting all together and just leave the ++. If a node does not recieve any ++ votes, isn't that the same as a -- vote without the negative connotation and also prevents ganging up on someone because of who they are?

There are so many other issues with running a community that is vibrant and informative, but minimizing SPAM,TROLLING,FLAMING, ETC. is a very important consideration in not only the value of the site, but also in the time needed to maintain it.

    But this node says
    If a given node receives a lot of negative votes it will be noticed by me and possibly deleted.
    So you would be removing a mechanism whereby the community can deal w/trolls or otherwise inappropriate post(er)s.
      It would be interesting to look at the posts over the last month and look at the statistics of the votes:

      • Average vote
      • minimum vote
      • maximum vote
      • # of votes
      • etc.
      Is it not possible that nodes with scores below 5 could be looked for reaping?

        I'm not sure that a node with a Rep below 5, because

        • it's not very hot/good information,
        • or a clever solution to something,
        • or even a good thread
        is in the same consideration as a node with a Rep < 0 because
        • it is a troll,
        • a spam,
        • something irrelevant or out of the context...

        He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.
