    I think as long as it's coming from a person who has "voting rights", they can vote in any forum. But it takes a lot of negative votes to get thrown off the island. Plus, even when politics are involved, there are also going ot be folks who give you positive votes. I wouldn't worry too much about that.

    So what's that mean? Can we be booted out of the forum despite our long history of contributions, both monetary and philosophical?
    Makes all the routine posts.

    My suggestion would be that once you're in you stay in. I like the idea of giving incentive to folks who aren't CRT members to post good stuff, but having those inside the forum rating each other opens it up all kinds of weirdness.

    I think if you drop to 0, you should get the boot, or maybe have a mod check into it at that point to make sure it's not just someone voteing you down for fun.

    I agree. Visions of Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" come to mind.

    You guys are killing me- my first 2 positive, or any other rankings.

    Would it be possible to make it easier to give people the thumbs up? Like a link from the members list? It's a pain to search for posts by user and then rate them. MWM made a list of people we need to rate and it's a little tedious to follow his orders, as correct as they might be, help me be lazy. please.

    For the record, it was people we need to rate positively.

    (and it was only 5 people)

    We need to be able to vote people off the island. If not, how will the lessons we learned from "lord of the flies" be validated? how I ask? how?

    But seriously, M2 is right, once we've let the bad roommate move in, we can't kick them out unless they violate the lease. Otherwise we are them, and let's try and avoid that little mess if we can.

    and it was a good list.

    you killed me in the threadies league.

    I'm last. LAST. I like the points league better.

    Next year we need a threadies "points" league with 9 starting hitters, 4 starting pitchers, and 4 relievers. It would be much more fun, IMO.

    Can we put the reputation ranking back in the posting profile under the avatar? Not as some "status symbol," but simply because we have limited reputation points that we can give out in a 24 hour period, and I'd like to give it to posters on the cusp of making it into CRT versus someone who has 500 points.

    I agree. The potential is mind-boggling. I foresee gang warfare.
