What are the color-changing metrics for posts?

So I've recently seen 2 posts get over 100 votes and 'gone plaid' and this was new to me. I thought the only recognition was just +10. This got me thinking, what are the other color changing metrics for posts? If the post went -100, would it go plaid in UVA colors?

Known metrics:
Unread: Yellow
Read: Grey
+10 Upvote: Green
+100 Upvote: Orange/Maroon plaid

Others?

...would it go plaid in UVA colors?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

yeah man thats the point. A -100 post should have consequences

It should have consequences, but not to my eyes.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Probably get the ban hammer

The Dude Abides

I can attest that it does not

If anything, it should get a Zoidberg, "Your post was bad, and you should feel bad!" picture in the place of any comment made.

If you go Arnie, you get put into the penalty box for eternity.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

This. If you only go a little Arnie (have a comment with 10 or greater downvotes than upvotes), the comment will blur until you mouse over it.

That's when Guitarman throws down the Ban Hammer.

Dear HokieStone2006,

You need to TKP harder.

Sincerely,

All of us that spend way too much time in this website.

ps. You are correct, those are the only color metrics. The O/M plaid was added recently at the request of the community.

Too much time on TKP? ..what do you mean?

They also go fuzzy if they go too, negative, but I don't remember where that threshold is. -10 maybe?

Yeah it's -10. And don't mod downvotes carry -10 or something bigger than just -1?

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Wait can you explain this out?

A post with -10 gets blurred

When do the bans set in? I assume no negative post score automatically leads to a ban, theres a human involved somewhere

Straight from the community guidelines

The Key Play's Community Powered Moderation System
Turkey legs are a delicious, sobering, slab of meat on a stick. They're also The Key Play's karma currency and moderation mechanism.

Members can award them to each other by upvoting comments and forum topics. If someone posts a funny picture, witty reply, good statistic, something you like etc..., then upvoted and give them a turkey leg. Conversely, if someone flames, wages a personal attack or doesn't follow the community guidelines, then downvote. Do not downvote for disagreeing with someone's opinion. In general, upvote more often than you downvote.

Users below -25 turkey legs won't be able to comment. Users below 50 turkey legs won't be able to start forum topics.

All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.

Hit the pace car?

Hit the pace car!

What for?

Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect!

Ahh, thats the overall turkey leg amount. Not necessarily one bad post

FYI, the turkey leg thresholds in wasknick's post (and in the community guidelines) are totals for the user, not per post.

Edit: Dammit!

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

What everyone else has said. As far as I know there isn't a necessary "ban hammer" but piss off the mods and it's gonna feel like you've been beat with one.

The ban hammer??????

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

Joe (and possibly VTGM) can, in fact ban hammer people. It has been done in the past when a user is guilty of conduct unbecoming a TKPer, but community policing was ineffective or simply not a strong enough response to the user's antics. Arnie, for instance, was straight up banned by Joe (penalty box, as he put it).

I just read this all the way through for the first time. It's freaking hilarious in its own right. I guess I haven't been TKPing hard enough, which I say as I'm on my work computer writing this comment instead of calling clients that haven't paid their sponsorship money like I'm supposed to be doing.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Has any post ever achieved such an honor?

technically my latest Bud Foster "MacFoster" gif got something like 230+ legs but it was from 3 separate posts so I imagine some people were generously legging it multiple times. I think one single post got up around 150 one time, but I haven't gone back to check.

Would be cool to have a "most legged" list. I wouldn't necessarily call it a Hall of Fame because some of the most legendary things on TKP come from before the community was so large, but it would be interesting to see that list.

damn. well, maybe use 250 as the Hokie Stone bench mark.

and how about 500 legs gives you an image of the lunch pail that you need to hover over to see the comment.

What's impressive is how there's a 400 leg difference with the post he was replying to.

Don't worry buddy you'll get those legs back... maybe

I have a better idea - hear me out

A post that gets 500 legs gets an alpha-blended horse on a treadmill background.

Ha only now realizing the OP asking about the system went Kalil Mack with a green, plaid, then multiple blurred posts yesterday. It's like he created a checklist from this thread and then went out to knock every one out. Can't say I'm not at least a little impressed.

I think it was a pragmatic case study of sorts for him.

You know, the W&M game was the first time I really noticed the paper airplanes, and it did suck to have them smacking the back of my head. (It's the newer free programs that are the source of the paper, btw). But there was an impressive moment where someone from high up in section 39 tossed an airplane down, and we were all mesmerized, watching it glide down to the field, where the wind currents kept it afloat and changing direction. It ended up landing around the 3 yard line, in between the hashes.

That's why you heard a bit of a cheer from that side of the field right when we got some penalty for smacking their QB or something.

I saw it on TV. It landed right before they cut away from the shot. I was awaiting the cheer, but wasn't loud enough for me to pick it up on the TV.

Just let it go. It's done, nothing good will come from poking fun at them at this point.

Slightly OT: One unheralded (but widely invoked) natural feature of this community moderated system is the *drink* tag. I don't know how many times I've read twitter comments or video comments online and it's patently obvious the commenter(s) read none of the previous responses. It helps that this community is more engaged with the subject matter and generally posts interesting/valid comments or opinions, but still refreshing and impressive that we can get hundreds of posts deep in a short amount of time and have very few if any repeats.

(I'll allow leeway for live game threads; until we can post straight from that chip in our head or SKYBEEFY gets launched, there will be some lag)
