all that needs to be done is forbid rep threads, if someone has something to say, pm the person.

Got to agree. If that doesn't work out contact an admin.

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
I agrre with you that the Reputation can be used to "attack" someone (unfortunatelly, I've seen it).

But sometimes it is a good indicator if you're doing a bad/good job... I've seen cases that the person started with neg reputation (on the first posts), as he/she spamed and sometimes made posts with no usefull content, but he/she improved and today he/she has pos reputation.

So, the problem that is more complained here is about the unfair reputation. In this point we maybe had to make an upgrade. People have said that we could make a system that new people doesn't get voted, or, the case here, to stop it. Just would like to remember that some people here don't get stressed with reputation.

I have to agree that people with good reputation (or not or none) in most cases come here to help or get helped. AND I would like to remember that we cannot make h´ppy all the people, so a neg rep (when is fair) is normal (now we're coming back to the unfair part).

So, in my opinion, it can be stoped the  reputation system, but, if it continues (is that I belive that is going to hapen, as, if I'm not wrong it have been instaled for people interaction or something similar) no problem too.

Ohh... I was forgeting: maybe we could choose some people (the older ones here) to judge the reputation, but maybe it's difficult. Also, try to search on the forum, because posts with suggestions about the reputation have been made...

EDIT: But contacting an Adim. is good to when we need to make things fair... Have to agree with you again...

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
The reputation system is not at fault, it is the attitude of some people that is wrong...

If you think that the reputation system is useless, then simply don't use it.

If you like to abuse the reputation system, that says more about you and your attitude than about the reputation system itself.

Removing or changing the reputation system is not going to change and/or help the attitude of those people. They still will act immature...


PS: yes this has indeed be discussed before...

One of the reasons someone said the rep is a good thing was because it let the mod know if he/she is a good person. Since it is only them who deal out the punishments it would be good for them to see it.

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
I smell another "Members behaviour" thread.

I dont think the rep system should be removed, the rep isnt at fault. But really does rep matter? if some person gives you a neg for crap that is not true all you have to do is just forget about that person and move on.

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
this topic has been argued to death, every single time somebody makes a thread about the quality of the forums member, with in an hour its turned in to a debate about weather the rep system should stay or not, and to be honest, its not our decision, its the admins decision, and they've decided it stays, making polls or threads about it so everybody starts screaming at each other doesn't help it to get better,  it only gets on peoples nerves, and it gets way out of hand.

arguing or even discussing it won't make a difference, if the forum admins feel that the reputation system is no longer a good part of these forums, then they will remove it. on their own. not with our help.

Thats not right. I could get 20 people to neg and put all lies. the mods wont think your a good person or not just by looking at rep.

In my opion you should be banned if you are telling people not to feel bad insulting and hassling new users. Also whats wrong with a good name for the board? We all want a good name for the board.

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
Rep system is a good feature..its good for the community, if you see it being used in a wrong way its people's fault not the system's fault.

If you think its useless then i think you are giving too much importance to it just by creating a new thread.

RE: Get rid of the reputation system
My point being discrate it will be better for the members. Those 20 lies would only create flames in threads when that member tries to help. Making the reps private will allow the member to be judged better by the people who deal out the punishments.
