This seems like a forehead slapper of an idea. One of the biggest problems with the up/down system is that it's arbitrary and lacks nuance. That's obviously not going to solve the other issues, but frankly I think its a pretty clever way to make votes both not count as much in the way they do now as well as making them count more as a way of actually responding to the comment vs responding to the tone or the idea or the person who posted it. Figuring out how that would affect scp and ccp is a challenge, but I think it's a worthy one to consider and I hope @Atko and the rest of the community gives your idea some thought.

And then you could sort by type of voat. So if you wanted funny comments, sort by them etc. Seems like the best idea here to me.

Maybe just getting a vote counts towards it?

SCP and CCP remain as trophies for early users and we switch to a different system? Just as an idea.

That could work. I mean, I'm sure there's a way to keep the system in so that it still does what it does now, I'm just not sure how different types of votes would affect it, unless it simply counted any type of vote given as a 1
