The ONLY down side to this is that people are whining about it, filled front page with people trying to get 12 thumbs but that will go away quickly, as the lurkers help each other with upvotes. Overall good change.

Of course it's all in your head... this whole site is all in your head, we are all a figment of your imagination Admin... shhhhhhhh...

A suggestion: It could be "level 2 *or* been a user for a certain amount of time"
User avatar #65 to #52 - flamingpie ONLINE (08/25/2013) [-]
Spammers could just leave accounts logged in for that x amount of time tho
#205 to #65 - dirtypoluha (08/26/2013) [-]
But if spammers can put that effort in they can also just find a stupid post(which there are plenty of) and ridicule it for thumbs. Easiest way to get green thumbs here.

They could just leave the account on and walk away tho, multiple proxies logged in, then walk away. Making comments actually requires human interaction,. And even still, with the amount of time it'd take it would be worth it

Spammers could even make comments and thumb them up with accounts they already have at level 2.
User avatar #228 to #227 - flamingpie ONLINE (08/28/2013) [-]
Still, too much effort for them to care

this sounds like a good idea, I'd upvote it, but since I lurk more than I post, I'm never going to be able to at this rate

Have this thumb to start you on your journey to being able to vote and thumb.

Too many users begging for thumbs now.

All I see is complaining
in the top comments for content, it's people saying "I'd thumb you up.. But I'm not level 2"
User avatar #3 - shinnok (08/25/2013) [-]
It's better
User avatar #31 - clockworkseven **User deleted account** (08/25/2013) [-]
I rate the update 10/10 like Skyrim with thumbs.

You get a lot of **** , addy, but you take it.
Of course it feels a bit different. You can't change something and not have it feel different, silly admin!
In all seriousness, though, the changes are minor, and they're for the best. If it'll help make the site better, I don't mind the change. Of course, I'm not sure how well you're listening to fj'ers suggestions, but if you are, and if you're taking them into consideration, then kudos.
All in all, you're doing better running the site than I would be.
Even though you can be sort of a dick sometimes, but so can we all.

I haven't seen a spammer in a while so your plan worked i guess.

only thing that is bad about this site is the so called "item game". I thought this site was meant for sharing laughs and gags. Next before you will know this site is going to have an online store.

I created my account a few days ago. It took a couple pieces of content and a handful of comments to make it to some higher levels. Anyone complaining about having to get to level 2 or higher is just lazy or unfunny.

I'm not funny but I come on this website to look at funny content not to make it

Doesn't feel much different to me.

Well that explains why i get over -200 thumbs on my comments...

Why dont you just add recaptcha that kill most of the sites that are used as proxys only browseres with build in proxy or proxy sites that allow JavaScript will Work, also use some php that detects if its a user that are forwarded "HTTPXFORWARDED" (this will only Work for non anonymous proxy's) and at last do some portscan (this will cut some speed of fj if it get used on page load do it with JS)

well for now i have no more idea's for you admin , feel free to ask me questions, im not a hardcore Google web developer but im in the website development business

just a lot of whining and people asking for thumbs
User avatar #135 to #132 - mayormilkman (08/25/2013) [-]
I can't sum it up any better than this.
User avatar #124 - crimsontyyde (08/25/2013) [-]
I totally agreed with it, only tad annoying thing are the people begging for thumbs.
User avatar #14 - halotalim (08/25/2013) [-]
I think it is a good idea to earn the right to vote by contribution of funny content and comments. Don't change it, its a good thing.

Well, I haven't seen all that Andre Herring BS but now people are just bitching about not being able to vote :I
User avatar #42 - marlton ONLINE (08/25/2013) [-]
Everybody thumbwhores now for some reason. You make a comment and it gets -10 thumbs, and people have to thumb down to see it, so it gets even worse
#92 to #42 - stokkeprygl (08/25/2013) [-]
or, you know, you can press show
User avatar #27 - littlemisscharity (08/25/2013) [-]

You made it so a user needs ~50 thumbs to be able to post pictures and thumb up general comments?
Hmmm okay now lets see, the fastest way is to make 50 comments and just logging into another account and thumbing it up in one go.

so spam + vote cheating is definitely the #1 way to break captcha
