Long-time passive forum observer here (observer since long before I ever had reason to create a forum account). I have noticed that new forum players simply can't catch up with people who've accumulated likes over years and years of playing the forums. CG hasn't done anything to rectify this imbalance. They could, but they don't. CG remains completely dormant on the matter. But why? Maybe they don't care about retaining new forum players or they're afraid of upsetting "kraken" posters with 10k+ points. Whatever the reason, it's demoralizing to new posters, who are still figuring out the right place to post stuff and where best to focus their energy each day to maximize likes; knowing full well they're unlikely to ever overtake the old-time posters.
