You really did not need to make a thread to find this out.

Do you see the + and - on the side of everyone's posts, those are options to give or take winpoints if the post is good or bad. And that's really it.

Just something you can give to people if you like their post.
See the little bar on the side of my post, with a + above it and a - below it? If you click + it gives me a winpoint, and my count goes up. If you click the - I lose a point from my count.

You cannot see these symbols on your own post.

Don't abuse the system.

EDIT: DAMN YOU, JEEBLES, YOU SLY TROLL YOU

Ah.
I made a new thread because I didn't just want to jump into a thread and post something completely off-topic.

Only real offense here is that this probably should have been posted in the forum feedback section.

So off it goes.

Also, winpoints are a form of nutrition. You should give them to Jeebles.

Don't even feed Jeebles winpoints. They increase his dickery level.

Now that you mention them, I realize I haven't gotten one in forever-probably because most of what I post has little to no relevance.....unless its in the flamewars threads (The Game, btw).

Anyway, they're just nice little things you can do for other people.

Well, you lost around 8 of the points in the "» The Doctor is and pretty cool guy." Thread where you said that you didn't like Matt Smith's Doctor that much, which is a silly thing to down vote someone on.

But Winpoints don't matter too much, in my opinion at least. It's the content that counts.

It's not if it was like... 1 or maybe 2 winpoints but 10?
That's kinda ehh...

Win points represent the length of the user's ego. Every time you click the plus you add on another inch.

Not exactly true, Trygon. tongue They do help show everyone else's opinion on what you say around here. Like if something is generally agreed upon and accepted as truth/fact, people tend to Winpoint it. Now if you do something that is unintelligent, disrespectful, or go around posting in-character sillyness, and/or decide to be a fuckwhistle, then you're going to rack up some negatives.

To put it in a simpler form, it's silent criticism. It's a way of saying "I don't agree with your post, and this may be offensive and/or heavily opinionated". I'd say to reflect upon any post that attract the Failpoints(negative winpoints), and think to yourself on the matter of what you might have said or done that was disliked. So later on you'll think of wording your post in a way as to not be offensive/unintelligent, but to still get your point across without the need for vulgar language or disrespecting people that don't agree with your views, especially when in more serious discussions.

Zander, that was just lovely.

i love how, for the most part, the people at Slender Nation are very intelligent about their posting. obviously there are some outliers, but i think the winpoint system is definitely one of the reasons people do things so nicely here.

I wouldn't take it too personally. Don't do what I do and obsess over them.

I wouldn't worry about them either. As long as you're in the positive you should be alright. It's usually the members who get drastic negative winpoints (failpoints, right?) that you don't see for very long.

I dunno. It's fun to point and laugh at the failpointers while they dig themselves into a deeper hole.

You were probably failpointed because you said that the winpoint system actually had something to do with the quality of the community here.

I didn't really want to post a serious post here (as per norm), but the simple fact is that all karma, rep and point systems are nothing more then gimmicks. Always were, always have been. The Slender Nation community would be just as great as it is today even without Win Points, Houses, Ranks, Titles or any other gimmick. They only exist for a little fun or to spice things up a notch and are merely luxuries at best. The moment you treat them as a serious part of why a community is great, you have lost the plot.

Trygon has it right, for the most part. The Win Point system is, was, and will continue to be just an overall harmless way to show gratitude towards an above average post. They are taken as a "SRS BSNS" kind of thing when they really should not. It's a spice in the stir fry we call The Slender Nation.


mmmm.....Stir Fry......
