Here’s the special bit : before anyone can post a comment, they must first rate three random comments for quality and civility
and rate their own comment for quality and civility, too:
Then all that “human ranking” feeds into the other stuff like explicit likes, replies, etcetera to determine which ‘best’ comments get published
And also to filter out (or amplify) users
I’m kind of unclear if you have to rate 3 random comments every time you comment, but maybe? Perhaps it’s only other new users rating other new users?
It’s a Disqus competitor, not anything that really competes with us. But some interesting ideas at least. One red flag for me is rating yourself on “quality”. Because I don’t know about you guys, but all my posts are ∞ quality.
