    one for getting people to respond. Lots and lots of points for posting a tip jar.

        Also looking for a definition of "unicorn chaser".  And yes, I'm very new to kos!  

        •  "tip jar" (0+ / 0-)

          the first post by a diary author, usually but not always the first post in the comments section.

          Used to collect "mojo", recommendations for the diary the tip jar is associated with. Or troll / hide ratings, if the diary is, for example, as painfully idiotic as this one.

          This whole thing is needful because the software DKos runs on doesn't allow for the recommending of diaries.

          Question: If DKos X.y (whatever it is these days) allows for recommendations of diaries, will tip jars go the way of the 0 <= M <= 4 rating system?</p>

          It's a great term.  I believe it originated at boingboing when they posted a video to something particularly horrific and then immediately followed it with a post about unicorns to soften the blow of the horrible image.

          no chaser.
