From now on, we use the rep system properly.

If we're discussing a player, or a team, or a coach and someone says "X player is a bum" or just "he sucks" they should be negatively repped by everyone who reads that post.

I'm sick of going into some threads I frequent to have a discussion on a player, team or position only to see one two words from the next poster "he sucks". If you don't like a player give reasoning.

I just hope it doesn't turn out like post count where people post things solely for the reason of raising their post count. Makes the board worse overall.

Bugged because (and don't take this wrong) I was gonna give you a -rep a little while after that for another post in the same thread (effectively resulting in a 0 score) but I was advised that I would need to "spread some more points around before you +rep etk again."
I decided that rather than mess around with trying to find somebody to +or-rep just so I could drop a - on you, I would just let the +rep ride. Now it turns out I didn't even need to bother...?
I really wanted to go find the post where somebody blasted the Cowpatties for calling themselves "America's Team" and throw a ton of points at them.
Whatever...I'll prolly just keep playing it by ear until they tell me I broke it.

Rep is never going to work. It's just a popularity contest.

True, i personally am not a fan of rep at all. All my rep points both positive and negative are so random. ill get a positive rep point for the most undeserving post and i wonder how i even got it, also whats worse than getting a negative one for a legit post and the person didnt even leave a reason. I mean if you give someone a negative you better have a good reason and you better post it. Also why do all the moderators have like extremly huge rep points. Im not disrespecting any of yall but it seems a little unfair that yall seemed to have started with a huge advantage. Hopefully im proved wrong and this rep thing turns out to be a great addition to the site, so we'll see.

Rep is more or less a confirmation of what we know: the great posters have high positive rep, the bad ones have negative rep. That's not a bad thing; in fact, it helps newer posters confirm who is good or not by one glance to the left. I don't see any unfair reps out there, so it's fine with me. I'd only dislike it if it was abused in a way where good posters got bad reps, but that obviously hasn't happened.

I agree with The Unseen. Yes, it could be abused. However, I disagree with any statements that suggest that rep isn't an accurate indicator of the poster thus far. Maybe in the future when rep gets bloated and everyone's halfway full, then yeah. But right now it's pretty damn accurate.

So it's accurate that the beloved cynical assholes like Snuff have several bars of rep, when all they do is insult people in 1 sentence troll fashion?

Bitches do love confidence and cockiness, it's sad but true, and I take full advantage.

You post normally in the college forum, I know that. Most of the time you are knowledgeable in the music threads, also true. I never said you deserve bad rep, I just think it's odd that you have like 5 bars of positive when you mostly just insult people in a one-sentence troll response.

I understand the criticism that the rep system falls under, but I think it's a great thing for the forum. Some of the other forums I read don't have that so it makes it very difficult to know whose opinion you should value, or who you should just ignore. It helps someone like me, who is still pretty new on this forum, figure out who I should discuss things with, and whose comments I should just choose to disregard.

Exactly, and it's not like it isn't working. All the posters in the red deserve to be there, and all the posters with at least 3 bars are well respected. Certainly it's better to have multiple green bars, but as long as you aren't in negatives you are fine.

You shouldnt judge someone by rep alone. Factor in their join date and post count. Lets take myself as an example. I only have one green box in my rep. However, I joined in January of 2006 and have nearly 3000 posts. I am the only seahawks fan that posts regularly, and I understand the hawks better than anybody on this board.

Before anybody gets mad at me, I mentioned post count because someone who has been here 2 years and has a grand total of 400 posts shouldnt be taken very seriously.

Haha of course, it's a combination of all those things. I mean you can't rely solely on post count or rep because they all have their flaws, but combining the overall picture of when people join, frequenty of their posts, and rep (quality of their posts) it's alot easier to understand who has a clue and who doesn't. None of them tell the full story, but they give a guideline.

Personally, I kind of look at rep as something different from other boards. It's nice to be able to laugh at something, and rather than post a stupid response like "lol" I can just give them some positive rep and not clutter up a thread. And neg rep is fun for the idiots out there. I'm not sure it's really anything more or less than that, but it's at least a new wrinkle which is kind of interesting.

Rep is infinitely better than post count. With post count, you could post spam and it would get higher. If posters post "lol", "OMG!", ":)", or "Nice Jets draft" then they aren't going to get their rep raised. If you make a good post, your rep goes up. If you make a bad post, your rep goes down. Yeah, maybe rep isn't an exact indicator of how good a poster is, but it more of an indicator than post count was. Honestly, is there any poster with high rep that you don't think is a good poster or any poster with negative rep that you don't think is a bad one?

People develop relationships on these forums. They're often akin to friendships of sorts. When you spend a good deal of time posting somewhere with people you respect for 2+ years, you develop respect for certain people. A lot of the higher post count people, including the mods, have an affinity for certain posters. That helped them get started on the rep. All of the non-mods started from 10 rep points.

From what I can tell, it is easier to build rep from the low-end than it is from the higher end. If I write a good post, and a new member + reps me, I get no additional rep points. If a mod reps me, I get 7-8, depending on the guy. If I + rep a new member, he can get up to 10 or 15 rep points from me.

Fact is, if you stick around and make good posts, you will be fine. I personally don't care about rep. I give + rep as much as I can. If I get it back, no worries. To me, it's a partial status symbol here. It doesn't matter to me, but it's nice to have.

That is the best way, if you get negative rep for what ever reason, look at the reason for the negative rep then an learn from that. If you want positive rep, and somebody positive reps you then learn from it. I got negative repped tonight and I am not gonna cry about it I will learn from it.

I got like 6 positive reps but an infraction for my old sig. Not sure I want to risk a banning for more positive rep, although it seems to be the only way I get any haha.

Yeah, I've given out +rep to a lot of people. I think the amount of rep given out per day should be raised by like 2 or 3 reps, because it seems like I run out really fast...

You +repped me for bashing Mims and the beat, but it didn't count because you are not an established poster or w/e. That's the main thing I hate about rep, it doesn't count when people like Sly gives it to you. What makes their opinions any less important?

It prevents retards like TNew from giving up negative rep. In order to get rep you need to prove that you aren't an idiot. It's not that hard.

I get a fair amount of rep from all the Ravens fans, am I the only person that gets the majority of the rep from your team fans in your teams forum?

I don't think I've ever gotten rep from another Dolphins fan, I hate 75% of them though so it's ok.

I'm sick of going into some threads I frequent to have a discussion on a player, team or position only to see one two words from the next poster "he sucks". If you don't like a player give reasoning.
OK. I follow the Arena League and several on the Utah Blaze's official site MBs -- myself included -- say that DB (formerly known as DS for defensive specialist) Clarence Lawson sucks because he misses way too many tackles and commits just as abundant a number of costly penalties.

I get lots from Bucs fans, and I give lots to Bucs fans. The problem is that most of them don't have enough rep for it to count, so I get stuck with blue boxes. Then one +rep from Ward changes that and gives me a 3rd bar :D.

To answer Bearsfan, I agree that people with negative rep should not be able to give out rep, but those with neutral should be safe.

I agree with Ward, we should encourage giving out lots of rep to make the system a success, and that's why I give it to a variety of posters to encourage them to use the system.

From now on, we use the rep system properly.

If we're discussing a player, or a team, or a coach and someone says "X player is a bum" or just "he sucks" they should be negatively repped by everyone who reads that post.

There are cases where a player sucks simply because he sucks.

Rep is never going to work. It's just a popularity contest. I'm debating whether it's worse than post count.

Ding ding ding.

And the worst part is, it doesn't even work. I have had at least six positive reps that aren't even green, they are gray, and thus don't count.

It's a novel idea, but it will never work.
