    Exclamation CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    Since I started rolling out the credit system, there has been a lot of sporatic comments about what people think of the reputation system. What I want to know is what each of you think are the pros/cons of the rep system and if it still has it's place on CF.

    I personally think the rep system still has some value because it's a rating that accumulates based on your peers BUT I also understand the problems of the system.

    Please answer these questions and provide comments...

    - Should the rep feature stay?
    - Should the rep be handed out equally instead of higher ranked rep members having a greater impact on one's rep?
    - What changes should be looked into?

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    I like it, the thing I would change is to slow down the rep given. As more people get more and more rep, it is causing a huge amount of inflation. I am giving out 100k+ rep now. I remember back in the day a pos rep would land you like 80 pts, not over 100k. We had our first 1M rep person a month ago, we will prob have the first 2M rep member next month. You could get to the point in a few months where 1 person will give out 1M rep.

    If I could determine what the heck rep was worth I would answer this question.

    Nothing but what other posters think of your posts.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    I don't really understand why getting positive rep from one member should be worth more than another, and I basically ignore what people's rep is, but I do like hearing when someone appreciates one of my posts and I like the opportunity to let someone else know I appreciated their post.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    Hey one observation. Can you put commas in rep like you have in credits? Like 1M would be 1,000,000 instead of 100000, easier to read.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    I think that rep giving power should be equal for all posters with maybe the exception of moderators and administrators. I really don't put much opinion into rep until someone starts a rumor of some sort, at which point I may take it into account. Like when I was a member of cyclone report, I put more stock into people's opinions that had been members the longest.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    I also think every member should have equal weight when giving rep. Maybe give weight by how long someone has been a member, but not by how much rep they have.

    At 100k a pop, you should definitely be the most popular person on this site.

    Too bad it does not work in real life.

    Brian, if you didn't have so much rep this wouldn't be a problem. Say some stupid stuff to get yourself back to earth and you'll never have the need for commas.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    I agree that rep should be pretty equal. I remember back when we first got to 4000 rep and it was a huge deal. Much more even playing ground.

    Re: CF: Rep vs Credits - Rep Feedback Needed

    When looking at a person's rep, if it is way below in the negatives, I take his comment/post very lightly. And vice versa, if someone has a bunch of rep he must be credible in the fact that he speaks with reason and not out of his arse. I like the point that a person with more rep can give more rep to a person for a good post but not in the factor of 1000000. instead of 80 give a couple hundred. It people research, speak fairly and cleanly they should have a good rep, but not one that gets put down 20,000 negative just cause he likes NES.
