  1. Great article and well done job of blending theories. Disappointed to see the ageist comment. My experience has been that Trolls come in all ages. Since you suggest Trolls have a purpose, maybe that comment was a “plant” meant to draw them out!

    Either way, really enjoyed your article- will share with others and incorporate into my fledgling web presence.

  2. My feeling is that often, UX of websites are mostly overthought. It’s like some people have almost too much time thinking about that stuff when most of the time, simple design really is the best. Thanks for the thorough article though !

  4. Wow, I wish that I’d had this article on hand about three years ago when I was assigned to “gamify” a suggestion tool for a customer support department. We were well on our way toward teasing out the kinds of information you have in the bottom grid when a technical issue resulted in project cancellation—had we had this quality research we might’ve found ways to solve the problem that didn’t involve trying to get two vendor products to talk ;)

    Seriously, well done! I’m saving this one. Thank you!

  5. This is the type of ideas my clients often come up with without knowing exactly what the consequences are or knowing there are dangers in this.
    I’d rather just keep it simple instead of adding flashy stuff like adding points, badges, and leaderboards.

  6. Very interesting! I had no idea there was so much science to this. The gaming industry has just earned a new level of respect from me.

  7. Although I never like seeing trolls on my websites, got to be honest, they do stir the convesration and get people to be very engaged with the commentary. I mean. for example, look at Ken M. He says a lot of pointless stuff for comedic purposes online, but by doing so, it gets people to engage with the article and gets more people involved, talking, and reading the article than would have. I agree with your point that trolls are sometimes necessary.
