whatever's clever, might not hurt with the thumbs up, thumbs down deal. i think what makes the voting kinda akward right now is the experience points for these reasons. heres just some shit on my mind.
1) i dont think a persons vote should weigh more if they deposit. everyone should have an equal vote, that would make the voting more accurate. you could replace it with some new secret areas, maybe even poll the newgrounders on some good ideas for new secret areas, see what tickles your fancy.
2) there has to be over 10,000 movies a day getting voted unfairly simply because people are trying to get their points and clicking "random portal entry" 5 times in a row, voting, and NOT watching. if deposits didnt carry as much weight, it would stop all these votes that shouldnt count, since the movies arent even being seen.
anyway, that's just me. either way, im gonna visit just cause i dig seeing peoples flash. welp, peace.
