I like the idea of the voting system, but when we vote a second time, we dont get a blam or protection point, but does our vote still count?You can vote as many times as you want (once a day of course), but only the first vote is recorded, and that is the vote that will be used to determine if you get a point or not. Say you see a movie that's okay, but you want to be a dick and give it a 0. Then you come back the next day and see it's not going to be blammed so you vote 2 or higher so you get a protection point. Well, you won't, because you originally were a bastard and voted 0 and don't deserve a protection point. :) The same goes if you vote 5 on crap to try and keep it from being blammed, and then you come back the next day and see it's going to be blammed anyway and vote 0 or 1. You won't get a point, because your first vote was unfair. :) This will hopefully encourage people to watch a submission and give an honest vote. They can still vote however they want, they just might not get a point, which wouldn't be a big deal to some people. However, some day these points might turn into Ground Gold points or something. :)
and as for the auras, unless you plan on having a large selection of colors that dont mean anything, i dont think you should change it because it shows how they think of flash works.If we make them selectable, we'll probably just keep them Dark, Neutral, and Light. User's can pick whichever they feel portrays their personality. Maybe we could add more, or make it more like AD&D. Like Evil, Chaotic, Good, etc.
but 3d_french_fry made me think of something, we dont get grounds gold for just being logged in anymore do we?You have to vote on 5 movies a day to get Experience points.
More auras would be cool.
Chaotic should have a yellow background, lawful should have a purple.
I think, however, that choosign your aura is a bad idea. How about if you vote with the crowd on movies, you eventually obtain a lawful aura. If you vote 5 on crap and 0 on good movies, you develop a chaotic aura.
I've always wanted to see a "Movies blammed" count in the profiles, too(how many movies made by the author that have been blammed). This could, however, encourage spammers to want to increase the count...
Third, I feel bad juju from the accuracy system.
Finally, BBS user of the day should be recorded in one's profile. It gives those of us who don't use flash a chance to feel special with our own award :)
