A serious suggestion / idea / query for the boys.
 

If, as it seems, voting is dead in the water - deader than a wolf on JSOP's lawn, deader then Jimmy Savile's legacy - then what of the future?
 
I liked voting, it's a nice way of showing that you've read something and want to reward [or punish] the author of said piece. I am not a fan of whole-scale unibombing or happy pill high fiving anyone who replies to you. So there must be a compromise somewhere...
 
[Vilmos does the whole 'woo woo' effect complete with wavy hands]
 
... imagine a place where opinion can be given, but not a bland +/- points but as moderation, giving a quick one word comment to indicate pleasure or disgust.
 
My idea is to give members a choice of comment words - maybe five or ten each of positive, neutral and negative. Voting would be two steps, click on the group - positive - then on the comment word - funny. That then forces users to think a bit more about their moderations.
 
The second part is to restrict the number of votes a user can make in a day - maybe starting at 1 a day for newbies increasing to a maximum of 20 for big time forumators. Not a lot of votes can be cast so those that are made will really mater.
 
As I say, if voting is totally Jim Morrison then so be it, but if there's a chance of a new form, then how about it?
