    When does this happen, and what are the perks of having high +troll?

    I'd also like to suggest some sort of value for people being immense idiots. We could call it like +noob, +pawn, +tool, +propaganda-fed-faggot, or something like that.

    People are just going to tread '+Troll' as a reward and it will become 'l33t'.

    It's not really a good idea, -rep and infractions should take care of it.

    Or maybe let moderators decide about the troll meter, maybe everyone gets this bar, when the troll meter reaches a red zone, or its highest point, you'll get a warning of some sort... Maybe everyone should start with zero...

    It'd be fun, sure, but it would be a problem for moderators to be misled by it.

    I mean make it so that it is only accessible to moderators, while the players can report to request moderators to add to the meter, so that nobody would misuse it...

    (The first +1 kudo Troll goes to Ephy)

    I'd say no, people will just enjoy it.

    The Reputation system and infractions are already enough.

    Plus a lot of people just (incorrectly) label everything a troll.

    Can we actually get a troll meter? That would be the greatest thing since we found out there was water on the moon.

    I'm thinking that this discussion isn't really going anywhere productive. Thank you for your suggestion. Not at this time.
