You have to vote to see the progressive tally/result.

If you dont vote it is assumed you dont particularly mind one way or the other.

Blindfold someone. Smite them. Make them guess who hit them.

...is it just me or are we missing something here?

I see the first vote to RETAIN.

People with high applaud numbers will likely be happy to keep the system.

I'd say it's flawed, but maybe not fatally. Should we vote to do away with it we'd still have to count on the RF folks. If they're going to do anything, why not make some suggested improvements. Applauds, if implemented the right way, can encourage an environment more conducive to substantive/irenic discussion.

Totally agree. Actually AtheistForrums has a very good system. You could only applaud someone since the smites were disabled. And you were allowed to comment when you applauded them. You could also like a post.

I just voted retain because, for the most part, I think it's working.

And also, hell, I might just start posting my smites as well as my applauds.

Thou hast just been smote for thine impertinence thou knavish rapscallion.

Mr 21 Applauds and counting. Yeah you wanna keep it.   8)

Argument #3 against.  Skews the discussion artificially.
We will exert more energy avoiding pain (smites) than we will seeking pleasure (applauds).

I actually think people are playing a lot nicer now that it's in place.  How soon we forget all the crazy trolling waves that have gone through here.  I feel like things might be better now.  Or it could be totally anecdotal/subjective.  I dunno.
