I think that the more votes and comments and forum posts you have should affect how much your votes are worth on games.  Newgrounds uses this and it's pretty cool.

Maybe. In theory I like the idea, it rewards those who the rest of the community feels is contributing quality content.

We'd definitely have to pair this with a way to tell WHO is voting up your comments though. If your circle of 50 friends are all voting up every single thing you write, then their votes should count less toward your overall reputation.

Pretty much would give people more reasons to spam. But the idea is good.

The idea is nice, but like secretmapper said as well, it's very likely to become a spam risk if you ask me... :/

And frankly... the idea of "the more people gain in points, the more they would have to say" is something I wouldn't like to see implemented...

In my book, every user of AG is equal!

If someone who has (let's use the current AP system for this example) 10,000 AP has more to say than a person with 200 AP... where's the benefit of this?!

A person with 10,000 AP might just as well dislike a certain game compared to that 200 AP user and there's nothing to gain when he would have more say in putting his vote on the table... *aha* ...or am I missing something?

I just don't see any use with this... 0_o

If points were less for friends, couldn't some people de-friend people just so they would vote higher?  That would take a little effort, but some people would probably do it.

Theoretically, Joe, yes, they could, but then would lose the benefit of being friends.

MrDayCee, keep in mind that Armor Points won't work the same way on AG3 as they do on AG2.

Can you give us a link so we can read how it works?

Are you saying about voting people up, or voting their posts or something?? I don't understand what you mean?

I think this is a good idea except for one thing, their rep. Their voting power should based on their rep and not post count or anything as they could be spamming or such. Having your voting power be dependent on rep would make more sense.

Secretmapper, there's a sticky post here in the AG3 forum about how the points will work.

Legend_beast, he means that the higher your reputation, the more reputation your likes/dislikes give to someone else.

1337Player, the quantity of posts have nothing to do with reputation. Their reputation will be based on how people vote on their content (if they even vote at all)
