As, apparently? the only one who were around when the up-voting system was still working, or at least with the memory of it, it went something like this:
Someone typed a comment. There would be a green arrow next to it, for people to click if they found it to be helpful and awesome and stuff. This made the comment appear in a larger font, so it was more visible when people scrolled down the comment list.
If a mod went to check the game comments, they would notice it, but they could easily ignore it, if it was not worth giving a merit for.
It would just continue to appear bigger than the other comments and that was it.
As for the suggestion, it will be really odd if people start getting merits for forum posts, but that might just be nostalgia speaking, and please don't make it so that the mods are notified when something is clicked, because that is just annoying, and they will probably start thinking up an appropriate revenge when it happens often enough (and it will, because, as mentioned, a lot of people have friends and seeing how many people behave around AP and merits, there would be a lot of unnecessary and undeserved upvoting. Probably sockpuppet accounts as well, in case people need those extra five-ten upvotes).
