Thank you for adding some more background info to this role!

Agreed it's a fine balance and "thoughtful" is very subjective. Like can a user be thoughtful in one instance but not another? How long do they need to be "thoughtful" before they're awarded that role?

But I think this is a move in the right direction. Rewarding people positively for creating thoughtful content that isn't spam or plagiarism makes a lot of sense to me. Hopefully, exerting pressure on both sides (positive reward for thoughtful content, abuse reports for spam/plagiarism) will help elevate content that people want to read.
