Saidit's voting system: Why it's awesome and how to use it by magnora7 in SaidIt

[–]magnora7[S] 3 insightful - 2 funny3 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

I appreciate you taking the time to lay out your argument so clearly. You make a good point about being able to vote both... so basically you think in people's desire to add more points to something they like that isn't funny, they'll use the funny vote to promote it more? I see what you mean now.

On the one hand that's kind of also laughing at content they're trying to seriously promote, so I don't know if people would do that. Plus anyone truly dedicated to gaming the vote system can just switch between multiple accounts, so I'm not sure how much it's actually preventing in reality.

We put a lot of work in to coding the functionality of being able to vote both. It'd be a real shame to undo all that, plus it's one of the unique features to saidit.

What if we met in the middle? What if insightful is +2, funny +1, but then if you vote both it's still just +2 total, but it gives +1 to the insightful category and +1 to the funny category? This way it doesn't give additional points, but still gives the diversity of indication of being able to vote multiple ways. That way it doesn't encourage voting funny for visibility, but the complexity of the voting system is still maintained.

I think we would definitely consider a system like this, it makes a lot of sense.

Yeah? Of course some will abuse it, but most won't and it'll still be a useful thing

I can see it, I'm not big in to that type of use personally because it still promotes the content higher on the front page, so it's not really effective as a protest vote.

Wow this is cool. I just visited saidit from firefox in windows 2000. Then I tried to load up linux, inside firefox inside windows 2000 (inside chrome, inside windows 7), but it won't load haha. The old firefox can't run the emulator

A friend and I listened to the song and were naming the music genres each part of the song represented. We counted 6 I think. We both agreed if it had started with the pop-sounding part rather than the death metal part, and it could've been on the radio

I kind of wish I had named this sub /s/BillionaireWatch or something that makes it more obvious it's meant to be critical of billionaires.

Surprise, surprise. /r/News mods start mass censoring anyone in the front page thread mentioning that the "Neo-Nazi white supremacists" who graffitied a synagogue were caught on camera and are BLACK by useless_aether in MeanwhileOnReddit

Yes I will definitely do TD, gotta hit it on all sides. Plus that's one of the easiest subs to get banned from.

I mean if they win and get stuff passed, great. But I'm not going to put my hopes in this system that is clearly designed to pull the rug out from under anyone looking to actually change anything significant. I've already been through this multiple times and it's pretty clear how things work out.
