    New Rep System

    Just a thought on the rep system. Is there any way we can just change it so every time you get a rep it takes your rep total up 1 "point?"

    Also, throw negative rep in too. So a poster could have a negative, zero, or positive "rep points"

    I know this issue has been disucssed, sorry if this specific idea was brought up.

    thanks

    Re: New Rep System

    We had negative rep back in the day... I don't remember the reason it was taken away, but I know I would be in favor of bringing it back, and I'm definitely not the only one.

    Re: New Rep System

    It would need to be on a more complex scale than just 1 point.
    Like, the more rep you have, the more pts your rep is worth when given to somebody else.

    But, I do agree, we need a new rep scale.

    -rep was taken away because of whiny people. Whenever I have been on other forums it always ends the same way with Neg Rep.

    Re: New Rep System

    I just can't tell easily who has a lot of rep. I just want a number next to someone's name. +1000, -2, 0, etc.

    That's pretty much how it is right now. If you have a lot of rep, you can instantly pull someone to a full rep bar on their first day.

    Agreed that a new scale for the rep bar might be a good idea, the top end is too low so everyone who's been here more than a little bit has full rep.

    Re: New Rep System

    The reason why we can't have negative rep around here is because of posters like Clones21. While he wasn't around back then, his schtick isn't new. People would basically act like him, start up pointless new threads, act like arseclowns in other threads, and have so many red blocks. Then, to make matters worse, instead of realizing that perhaps they're the problem and changing their behavior, they would go run to the mods whining about how they're so unliked around here. It became so much of a nuisance to the mods that they just eliminated negative rep altogether.

    I used to like it because you could see if a poster was a troll or was full of balony sooner. Could zone that person out subconsiously.

    My rep goes to "11". It's like, one louder.

    Re: New Rep System

    I think one of the bigger problems can be with the comments that go along with the neg rep. I think it could help mod issues if they brought it back but you couldnt make a comment with neg rep

    That might be good. At the same time, people use the positive rep as a way to send "less-positive" messages as well. Only a couple of posters utilize that method, but it's been used as a way to harshly critique without the option of responding.

    Re: New Rep System

    Maybe there should be a poll or something to gauge what percentage of people would want a switch to a new system.

    Getting rep positive or negative on a message board is comical. Why do any of you care?
