Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

How to encourage rather than compensate

I've given the idea of "Votes" and "Points" on Evoke some more thought, just because I like the concept of games and using recognition as a reward. I would like to propose a solution to what everyone has been talking about with regards to finding "hidden treasures" and new users. I think there should be a leaderboard based on how many comments and votes people make. If such a leaderboard existed, the people with the most comments and votes given would be the people exposed to the most materials, and therefore might be good people to "follow". If these people have a "favorites" blog or something similar, users would also know these were potentially more valuable than say someone who only reads about 1 subject.

Anyways, just a thought on how we can encourage people to read and comment on OTHER people's blogs rather than just trying to get other people to read and comment on their own.

In case you missed it, another way to help you keep up with other people's blogs is by subscribing to their RSS feeds

Boy, that's a fine idea! Even if there is not score system, I appreciate the reminder that on other blogs dwell wisdom and fun.

Part of this is in the new leader cloud -- there's a section that lists the top power-vote-casting agents. I think the part about commenting is also very important, but it's not just the number of comments -- the quality matters, too. Posts that say "me, too!" or "come see my blog" are obviously of less value than comments that actually reflect, reinterpret, or add to the discussion. +1 vision for your ideas.

Good idea! I covet comments that help forward the action on my projects!
