    And the forum steals the rest of my clever reply! It has been lost. Now only God and myself know the mysteries of the troll voting.

  • I added it to CS in the same manner the other buttons exist ... basically 5 votes cause it to be flagged as a troll. You can do 3 troll votes a day. I was hoping that would get rid of the obnoxious replies. But, no one uses it so it's going to be gone in the upgrade.

    Fixed that for you :)



  • Are more people using the 'troll' button now? I just tagged one (today's WTF), and he was gone! If so, great!

    I tagged that "first" moron but the post remains in place.

    Well, on the other hand, given that almost nothing ever work, as intended or at all on these forums, we tend to get "button blindness". It's like ad blindness, only for buttons.

    After the few obligatory occurences of misposting, misquoting, etc., you learn to use only the most minimal subset of the forums, that would be "replay, quote, new subject", and you barely ever bother anymore to try anything as fancy as even trying to post a link.

    In that endless forest of non-working features, how are we supposed to know that this one button actually works ?



  • On a similar but different note - how many posts do I have to make to get one of my yellow lights to light up?  I have 108 posts as I write this, and I have all three blues and all three greens lit up, but none of the yellow ones.  I couldn't find anything in the FAQ either.
