OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

RE: Two voting systems

Member since:

One if you agree with the content of the text (+/-) and one for the quality (like we had it till now).

Too complicated, and entirely needless. The current system is actually designed to handle both types of votes. There's loads of algorithms underpinning it all which handle these matters. Few people realise - luckily - just what our mod system entails. Beneath those plus and minus links there's a lot of magic going on, continuously developed over a long period of time.

We already have voting systems for both agreement and quality. Adam was just smart enough to roll them into the one single system ;) .
