I was wondering if it were possible to put a +REP system in place to show thanks or appreciation to someone that would build up their "reputation". Most forums have this type of thing and I was just wondering if there could be such a thing in place here.

Thanks. :yawn:

Well, it can be good and bad.

The good part:
-Tells you whose posts you should pay special attention to. It can also tell you who to ignore/suspend/ban.
-Makes some people work harder to have the best "rep"

The bad part:
-Cliques form who "rep" each other's posts no matter what they are. Yes, people really do start caring that much about this kind of stuff.
-If you add the traditional rep system, giving someone negative feedback is possible. Controversial members who still may be good posters will get "negged" no matter what they type.
-Rep Wars will ensue. If someone get's "negged" they get all their friends to neg that person and then all that person's friends respond etc. It gets very, very childish.
-Some people are very sentimental and freak out when people "neg" them.

Maybe only a +REP as opposed to both a +REP and -REP? I agree though, REP systems can be a double-edged sword. I think we just have to trust TLN members to be mature, responsible people who won't go off starting REP wars and such.

Don't like it...

Most of the big forums don't use a rep/karma system because it doesn't do anything good for the forum. It's only going to get abuse by immature members. It can get abuse easily and it rarely works. Feelings and egos get bruised with negative rep.

We don't need a rep/karma system to give props for a good post or contribution. If you make a good post... people are going to show you love in the forum.

I think it's a good idea. They have it on the MLG forums and it encourages people to make longer more thought out posts and to help people out by making sigs uploading their videos or just help out in general.
