What if we brought smite back but somehow made it so you are forced to list a reason or cite a specific post before the smite goes through? This might cause more drama, perhaps, but it would also probably make people think twice about smiting someone... no more trigger-happy smiters?
it's called posting a respectful opinion about what someone said or did instead of hittign an anonymous button.


then again, I've been known to be a bit too honest.

You make a very good point.

which would be entirely reasonable if your posting habits didn't use up 80% of our server's resources...

I say we bring back the smite but also increase the moderators' ban quota...

you have a quota you have to hit? What happens if you don't ban enough people? Do you lose some mod powers?

I've always wondered what it would be like to have "mod power." It scares me a little. What would I do with it? I may have a tendency to run amok and mod threads about kittens just because I'm a dog person!!

Come on! You're saying this isn't funny?


Also, I voted no, just because it causes too many ridiculous arguments. I don't mind arguments at all, it's just the silly ones about why someone smited me or show your face smiter! ones that are unbearable.

Jinkies. Either way, I suppose. But if we get smiting back, you guys can't trust me to track my ratio, I know it will go south.

Ok, Smites are back. 

Heres the thing -

We have a new karma system.  You can now go to your profile and see who has given you karma, positive or negative.  You can also view who has given other people karma, positive or negative. 

So now people can be held accountable for the karma that they leave for others. 

Want to bitch about it?  There is ONE, and only ONE, and there never will be more than ONE thread for bitching about karma:

http://week4paug.net/index.php?topic=14704.0

Otherwise, keep it to PM.  And even then, PM'ing someone abour karma is just plain LAME. 

Its supposed to be fun, so lets keep it fun dudes. 

Posts (bitching) about karma in any thread other than the official karma bitch thread will be deleted.
