Comment Voting for Helmet Stickers

I don't see any functionality to vote on comments to give - or take away - helmet stickers. Is it because I'm a new member or am I missing something?

Huh?

Have to reach 100 helmet stickers before you can upvote or downvote.

I appreciate the offer!

... and I promise I had the nickname Tater well before we all laughed due to Ron White! So although I enjoy salad, I believe Taters do just fine by themselves!

See, we came through. My uncle's nickname is Tater, and he's had it a while too.

These erudite scholars speak the truth: hang around a while, contribute to the community, and helmet stickers will flow your way. In time, they will earn you nice perks, like voting and blogging, and eventually perhaps even admission to that mystical sanctum known as the Premium Lounge. Here's a quick primer on stickers. Welcome to the site!

Can't see your pic on my iPad Cajun, but I called the streak from Kenny G to Devin Smith vs. Cal. What play did you call?

Miller to Heuerman for the TD at the Orange Bowl.

Great call. I think Bassdropper called the 4th and 1 keeper by Miller vs Sparty. That's why his helmet stickers are where they are. The fall from 10,000 is a hard fall.

You called that play Cajun? Nice ass call! What would you have called had you acquired 10,000 stickers during the Tressel regime?

You can pay for anything in the Premium Lounge using virtual $$$ like BitCoin. Problem is, you have to have a rediculous amount of Helmet Stickers to get an invite. 

There's only 16 members in that elite company:

I got stuck with that damn name Tater when i was and only a few still call me that . But thank god they never added salad to the end of it. Plus i got stuck with nick name Porky as well and i hated both those damn nick names and to still be called tater at the age of 60 seems something is wrong with that LOL.

Tater,

It's good that you've already learned the importance of posting about HS's as often as possible . .

You'll want to get in the habit of bringing attention to your great posts by saying, for instance, "hey, where's the HS's for my great post?"

Likewise, if you happen to get a DV, be sure to question why, and tell anyone else who might be thinking of DV'ing you to suck it . . .

Pretty soon, you'll have so much attention, you'll have to start a new user ID to cope . . .

Welcome!

-Talking about downvotes get you downvoted.
-Talking about upvotes gets you downvoted.
-BassDropper will get downvoted even when he's makes a really good point.
-There are a lot of people here that ignore the rules on downvoting.

It was one of the more epic meltdown threads, before "The Purge". When the site transformed into its current version all old threads were deleted, including some amazing examples of people taking upvotes, downvotes, and the internet in general, waaaayyyyy too seriously.

Definition of a meltdown:

Newer member shows up on site and is extremely active in conversation on a particular thread.  Some of the posts are even close enough to normal that you fall into engaging the subject.  Subject then irrationally takes offense to a harmless ribbing from a senior member of the site.  Subject then proceeds to troll the rest of the members looking at the thread.  Mud slinging ensues.  Because thread is now getting new comments every other second, it stays on top of active list.  Every member logs into site and jumps into thread to see what's happening.  As trolls are irresistible, all members start downvoting and arguing with subject.  Subject then has to create new posts to get auto-upvotes that counter the downvotes.  Subject tries to create new posts as fast as possible to keep the numbers in balance.  Fast subjects can keep this game going for 10s of minutes.  Inevitably, an admin bans subject from the site.  Subject melted down.

Also, never disagree with anyone ever. Never critique a coach. If you do have a pair of brass balls and decide to question UFM, you MUST add "of course what do I know? In Urbz I trust!"
