This was from Hughsie a month or so ago when a couple of us asked.

Just something that's there, how many you get depends on your user group.

Seth gets 10
Admins get 7
Super-mods/contributers get 6
Mods get 5

I can't remember the rest.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

RE: Forum dislikes!
Normally I have no qualms here but lately I dislike how spikey the forum feels.

I want the nothing at all option so I can see the results!

Re: Forum dislikes!
So far I have no real complaints. I enjoy my time here and appreciate the hard work admins do. Especially since they don't get paid for their time. *shrug*
Thank you for answering my question btw Smile

RE: Forum dislikes!
In addition what Anjele posted:
Ex-staff have 6 stars ( although Stark has 7 pot leaves)
Vets have 5 Stars
Making your first post bumps one up to two stars
10 posts (pretty sure) is 3 stars
Becoming a full members grants 4 stars
Dipping into negative rep knocks one back to 3 stars.

I can't think of any real dislikes for the forum. There are certainly things that could be better though, such as a more dynamic variant of the shoutbox, or a buddy list that actually does something useful. The search option hasn't been very user friendly for me either, as in I don't know how to actually get specific results, I only get either every thread on the forum or none at all. Not sure what's going on there (maybe I'm just missing something really simple).

Under the bottom right hand corner of the poll, in grey, "Show Results".

The "Show Results as threads" option under "Display Options" on the Search page is pretty much fucking useless given the level of thread derailment we enjoy here. Big Grin

The "Show Results as posts" option under "Display Options" can be quite useful if your Keyword and/or Username criteria are pretty specific.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

RE: Forum dislikes!
I was gonna be good and stay the fuck outta this thread but, to hell with it, I wanna join in. Big Grin

My biggest gripe is what I call negative posting. People nowadays seem more inclined to post in a thread that they have an objection to than one they have an interest in. That's why the most read/replied to threads recently all seem to be about the holocaust, or started by someone highly controversial like FZU or Egor, whilst truly interesting threads in A+T struggle to make it past a couple of pages. It means the forum gets clogged up with ridicule and insults rather than discussion.

I'd like to see people focus on threads that interest them and ignore threads that they have an issue with, as opposed to vice-versa like it seems to be at the moment sometimes.

Best

Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: Forum dislikes!
I hate it when people start a topic with a question so poorly worded that it's either impeneratable (i.e., ya' can't understand or define it) or unanswerable - or both. The Christians and the Trolls excel in this and, as a result, provoke the people on this board to waste a lot of discussion bandwidth. It's tiresome.
