    Reputation - Decide it's future

    There has been debate in the past as well as more recently regarding the reputation feature on the site. While I have it setup and implemented about as well as I can figure out how to, it is not without its faults.

    Please vote above and help decide the future of the reputation feature, as well as discuss below why you feel the way you do or to share ideas on how it could be improved.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Keep it, it balloons my ego.

    Actually, I really don't care. There should be an "eh" option in the poll.

    should be kept, but should be restricted in use. People shouldn't be able to bash someone just for making an opinion. Conversely, people should not be able to boost their Rep simply from being a popular poster.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    How do you check the rep level coments? I have a bad rep level and all I do is come on here and post pictures of the Norman game and add to discusion about ISU sports. Where do I see what people are saying about me on my rep level.

    You have a good rep level drew. You can check the last 5 comments under the USER CP heading on top of the webpage. You can see your total points under your screen name.

    I like the rep feature just because I enjoy seeing what posts other people like/don't like.

    As for the number, I have no idea how it's calculated.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    IMO, rep points should done away with. Just seems elementary. People can read, people can agree/disagree. If you disagree with something, reply with a post and your opinion, instead of taking the easy way out and not participating. I think that will ultimately make for a better community.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    One suggestion may be to allow positive replies but not negative replies. Thus in the end, those that have higher numbers will show that their comments are more in alignment with others on the board. This would get rid of users bashing others for speaking their opinions that may not be agreed upon by the majority. I think having negative is an inaccurate way as it points to something bad. Being different then the majority is not bad, it may actually be a great post where standing up and speaking your true opinion is what this board really needs.

    For example, I'll probably get negative points if someone doesn't like this post. Yet I am only trying to offer up a constructive opinion.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    heres my opinion.. if they want it, then let them but they can not get rid of it once they have it, if they dont want it, dont give it to them, and they should not be aloud to idl effect the other ppl who have it, and if they dont care, then let it be an option for them later.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    I never have paid any attention to it until you posted this. So I went and checked out my rep level: -7. I earned this for two positive comments I made about the basketball team. Seems pretty stupid to me.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    I think it makes people think before they post, so I like it even though its not perfect. To not have it would invite posters to post facetious or nonsense posts. I saw that on the other sites, and I see very little of that here.

    Excellent point.

    Re: Reputation - Decide it's future

    I like the Rep thing. It's an ego thing just like Bryce said. It lets me know if people agree or disagree with me. I had a bad rep for a while and I actually liked it (I said something Bad about D-Mac during the Pro-Mac Era a Month ago) Most people on the site don't post but just read, it's an easy way to express their opinion without having to post a coherent paragraph. So maybe it's bad because there are less postings because of it???

    I say keep it because it's not hurting anyone and it's an added accesory to the site. I also think it should be harder to earn rep. I don't understand the points but I moved up pretty easily and I know I'm don't write good.

    It's the little blue checkmark under the member's name. I like it, because I do agree that it keeps things in check to a certain degree.
