Gamewiz of the NGPD pointed this out to me. I found it pretty disrespectful to the NG system. Thoughts?

Great. A statwhore teaching the noobs how to be bigger stat whores.

What would be cool is if there was a way to put a "wrapper" code around all flashes that forced you to play the flash for a minimum time period before the voting buttons were activated. When the author uploads the flash, based on the category (video vs. game ) and subject matter the built-in "w-bot" would know that this flash would have to be run for at least "n" seconds (15? 30? 45? varies?) before allowing the voting buttons to work. It could be done with some fancy java script tied to the flash program (the voting buttons are java script activated now already).

This type of forced "must press "play" and watch for a little while before you can vote" may not stop all the statwhores - but at least it will get their attention for a little while - and maybe help keep the voting more honest.
