We take this very seriously, because we created the Top Boards listing to help people find other unique communities. Not to create the rivalries, bad feelings and cheating that have been going on. This will also purge all the old boards that are in the list and no longer active, because admins will have to readd the Top Boards Voting link to their boards once the new system goes live. We hope that these changes will allow the Top Boards system to be used as it is intended and abusers will be easily tracked and dealt with.
Thank you all for your support of this feature. We think it is an asset to the network and do not want to see it discontinued permanently. We will post in this thread again to let you all know that the Top Boards feature has gone online again. It will be different because the thumbs down option will no longer be part of the feature and only votes for a board will raise it up the list. We have locked many names that had been abusing the current system and won't hesitate to do so if we find people trying to abuse the new system.
