    What about an incentive-system?

    "I give you three "thanks"(of that persons "thanks") to classify x or do y" With bartering of "I'll do it for two!".

    Basically Yous. We are the Yous now.

    An "owe you a favor" system or a "social esteem" system? For the former, the "thanks" need to be honored as future favors by the issuer; for the latter, the "thanks" need to reliably translate into good feelings, which bargaining doesn't tend to help with.

    I only accept This Guys, which have an exchange rate of 1.21 with Yous. The You just doesn't have enough Illuminati symbolism for me to feel like it's legitimate currency.

    I can disable it for those who don't like it. Perhaps I should create a joinable group for that purpose.

    Also, comments on changing the text associated with the badges are welcome.

    Someone else can start threads as needed.

    I'm resisting the impulse to use them for absurdist jokes but the impulse is strong.

    TM said. Thanks.
    TT said. Thanks.
    MM said. Thanks

    "what did he mean by this" suddenly becomes a VERY legitimate question to ask. One must rock the bloat boat, otherwise the entire crew goes down in scurvy. Check this out if you like the latest bloat = Inside Gab: The New Twitter Alternative Championed By The Alt-Right | https://www.fastcompany.com/3065777/inside-gab-the-new-twitter-alternative-championed-by-the-alt-right.

    Also, I should have just named the thread "muh already classified people backlog from previous two forums is coming when?". But it turned out pretty OK regardless. This is the way of The Nobilid.

    Regards Nobilid.

    Rename :

    "like" to "thank", "dislike" to "antithank", "dumb" to "normalfag", "creative" to "troo thal".

    @Lorien

    I created a joinable group for those who wish to opt out of the harsh psychic barrage that is colored "like" icons.

    I can do the same for "similar posts" if there's demand.

    Also, comments on changing the text associated with the badges are welcome. However, I am not sure whether @Vejiortan's are serious. Probably need some kind of vote to settle on choices.

    Someone else can start official threads as needed. I did the tech stuff.

    According to the new ratings system, Aeoli is now the most disliked member of the entire forum. =O

    This is quadruple serious, double-plus ungood stuff. THE METRICS HAVE SPOKEN.

    I implemented some of the suggestions and added some of my own.

    The new text entries need icons. I can add them if someone finds the actual icons. Suggest starting here:
    Post Ratings - taking likes to the next level | https://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-ratings-taking-likes-to-the-next-level.410/

    > What about an incentive-system?

    No. Those get gamed unless inflation is policed, as e.g. StackExchange does. Post Ratings plugin is good enough - transactions are transparent to participants and they're nothing more than digital body language.

    Someone could still abuse the score aggregation feature, by meaninglessly inflating +rep in a hidden zone. But that would have to occur with baronial complicity. To reduce this temptation, aggregate scores don't mean anything official. At worst, I would simply disable aggregate displays.

    Whether this is an actual vulnerability or an intended feature is debatable. Little cliques forming and +repping the hell out of each other = tribal formation. Click away!

    I am stuck with the (You), seeing as the "hover your fucking mouse idiot" doesn't work for me, GIFs stopped working for me three weeks ago, too. Just lagging, doesn't load. Tried other browsers but they failed even harder than Chrome.
    Sir, I have no other option than to accept this exchange rate. You have me at a disadvantage.

    I now hate the ratings system, I want my old Communist system of only "like" back, and I hope it gets bombed in the great Smiley-War thats brewing on the horizon of 2017, instigated by this new currency I am developing, The (E-Penis). It will dominate all other current economic social systems know to man.

    You will all learn the true meaning of an inflated economy, enjoy these last days of le current year.
    ITZ coming alright.

    I don't like the current system. Most of the emoticons look gay. Now, if we had a plugin which would automatically generate ambiguous, slightly catty but also obliquely threatening responses which would make the receiver feel insecure and nervous, that would be useful.
