Better pick it up Josh.
I have to have at least a little fun before you give up and admit I was right ;o)
Once you know that, it's easy to see that it is indeed affected on a 1:1 ratio by likes, but only those from after update (as y2josh mentioned above).
On a serious note, he is correct. I know that they just showed up recently, definitely not all the way back on April 30th. I saw them just recently and contacted a mod who didn't really know what they were either. Joseph's explanation above, from when Huw just recently updated the site, is the most viable one.
As far as the promote, only mods can use that. It has nothing to do with promotion, but merely means that they want to promote a comment because they agree with it or think it is funny. When they promote a comment, it is automatically included in the "best of" tab. Even if the comment only has 1 like (5 likes enters a comment into "best of"), a promote will make it in "best of".
Additionally, if I take the 'like' away, you lose a point as well.
Done the same thing for you @CCC
The spam was from a troll and he "spammed" a lot of people.
If my points were displayed next to my name like on Fleabay, I could see the point. All points are pun intended by the way.
