Hi guys.

I just wanted to suggest a "merit" report that could be added to armorgames. When I go browse on The community, sometimes I see comments or postings that are definitely worthy of a merit. I Suggest that next to the abuse flag, theres is a merit flag to report something worthy. People with good comments should be rewarded :D

Well actually there used to be something like that, I wasn't around for it so I don't know all the details about it but my guess is that they got rid of it because it was too easy to abuse it.

Yeah, there used to be a page where you could post a link to someone's comment and most of the time they got a merit hence why so much older users have loads of merits.

There also used to be a green arrow beside the flag comment, and if it got a lot of clicks, it used to go near to bold to show mods when they're skimming through pages for merits/deleting spam.

I don't know if it's a good idea to bring it back, a lot of people used to use alt accounts to rate up their own comments.

Even though I'm nowhere near to being in the position to know the facts, I am fairly confident to tell you that this is not going to happen... sorry! Besides what has already been said, aimply think of all the users that don't understand any of it and post stuff like this :

"I think my comment made here is worthy of a merit, gimme one!"

Comment : I think this game is AWESOME!

This would be a sure spam fest waiting to happen! And a headache for the mods...

I suggest a similar option?

Considering the audience of this forum would a rate up/down option be viable? Other than the witty remarks or catchy responses to bad posts it would also make great posts seen by users much more noticeable and hence make moderators' jobs easier.

Other than obvious potential for abuse what would stop this from happening?

Urge to make an account named that and pretend to get all mad at you. Must restrain.

I believe last time I checked they were planning this for AG3. I don't know if they will though.

You mean kinda like YouTube comments? ;P and lol it sounds kinda like a good idea. But it also has its cons. Like a person could just tell all his/her friends to render it "merit-worthy" (o.O)
