Fair dues. That is easily one of the best threads on any forum, ever. I'm still in awe of Lob's experiment and the discussion it has generated. I wish I had the energy tonight to play with the code, but I'm dead, and I'm off to bed soon for an early night.

But, yeah, you're right. Reports of imminent CoT Death are somewhat overexaggerated. :-)

How else would they know when to take away a karma point? What if you make a little pointless one-line post meant as a joke and they fail to see your humor even though others on the forum might still find it funny? Should they dock you a karma point for making what they see as a "useless" post? In my opinion, for a Karma system to have any value, it would have to be something that the whole forum could utilize. Anyone who likes your post can give you a Karma point and anyone who doesn't can take one away or just leave your damn Karma alone. Then make it that Person A can only touch Person B's Karma a maximum of one time a week (to prevent flame-warish Karma destruction or friendly Karma inflation). Finally, make it so that Karma doesn't mean diddlycrap. In that way, you have a popularity contest that actually represents popularity rather than the views of the mods (you know, assuming you want a popularity contest; I don't see a Karma system really being anything more than that, anyway) AND we aren't augmenting the level of dictatorship under which we all reside.

I'm of the opinion that public karma systems are shit. As an example, I'll point you to the gamefaqs forums (which are admittedly pretty shitty to begin with, but hear me out). They have a public karma system so a lot of their posts end up being too moderate and filled with disclaimers of "I don't mean to offend you, but..." bullshit so as to prevent people from dropping their karma. You make a good point about the moderator karma, Lobstrosity. What if the karma system was intended for moderator use and could also only be seen by the user himself and the moderators? Note that this implies that the karma system would actually mean something.

You know the postcounts per day tracker? An interesting thing to look at would be one that looked at a more recent timeslice, as opposed to the current one that just tracks from the beginning of the poster's time here.

For example, posts per day over the past month/2 weeks/whatever. Maybe I'm the only one that would be interested in something like that.

No old hoss; I'd find that interesting too.

In fact, it's far more interesting than the raw post count.

I'm fucking about with the PHP behind the board a little this week anyway - I'll see if we can knock up a simple page of post-count ranking for any given month (or somthing similar).

It's just as well. It's not like you'd want to play it or anything...

Hey, is there any easy way to allow html superscript and subscript tags to work here? You know, something like:

x<sup>2</sup> = x²

with html enabled? If it's not a simple change, don't worry about it.

I'd guess there's somewhere in phpBB, maybe even in the admin section to have a list of either allowed tags or disallowed tags... if not, then phpBB sucks... and that's all I have to say about that

Is <sup> the html tag for superscript?

If you tell me which tags you want enabling, I'll have a look right now for 5 minutes....

Hmmm. Consider that done, then.

The <sup> and <sub> tags worked before, but within the past few months they stopped working here. Another thing that used to work but doesn't now is &nbsp; which I used sometimes to space my words of the day. Since making <sup> and <sub> work was evidently an easy task, can you make &nbsp; work again?

I thought the <sup> tags used to work here, but when they failed me I figured I was just confusing this place with another forum. Awesome, thanks for (re?)adding the sub/superscript ability.
