Default Reputation System

Today we have disabled the rep system. As time has gone along we have notice the system getting abused more and more. We have received a number of complaints and have decided to disable it. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns on this.

Thanks!

It's the thought that counts

That's kinda sad, it's good because there will be no abuse, but it's bad because I no longer can give a feedback on people's post.

To me, abuse is the only one cons here, there are many benefits of having a reputation system on a forum like this. This is a forum for discussions, and having a way to see if someone has a good or bad reputation helps a lot.

In theory, it works almost like a democratic system, if the community likes what you do, you have a good reputation, if they don't, it's the opposite and it is in fact quite simple.

Without any reputation system, you no longer can give or receive a feedback, you no longer know if you were too rude, too aggressive or something similar.

If the community does not like the way you talk, the way you treat others, you'll have a terrible reputation, I don't think anyone here wants that, therefore you need to be polite and respect others. Obviously, there are rules covering that.

I've been here for a few years and I like the system, so if you could, please consider bringing it back. Please.

Removing it completely might not be the best solution, perhaps improving the system will make it better, and we will not feel the lack of it. It's important!

So if I had to say something, it would be; bring it back with improvements, labels giving you instructions on how it must be used, and a rule covering the system, in case of abuses.

Thanks.

+1 Vítor.

Dont remove the system, improve It. If people abuse the system find better ways to implement it.

How about just positive reps? That way "we the people" can approve/like a post, but cannot wreak vengeance on someone who makes an honest mistake.

I'd bet most of the complaints are about negative reps, yes?

Exactly. I would just give a +rep for this post if I would have been able to.

To me it takes away the nice and friendly communication on the forum.

Exactly. Banning or removing something from a specific group, people, community or whatever it might be isn't really the solution. There are many ways to solve the issue, I could make so many analogies here from real life. But that would be a topic for other thread.

IMHO removing the rep system causes more than it solves the abuse issues.
