Thumbs up Plea to bring back the Reputation system

Before you type anything, say whether you are for or against bringing back rep.

My ideas for bringing rep back:

-Make it viewable to the whole board. So if I say call Kwajo a panty sniffer, everyone can see that I sent that.

-Stricter punishment for misuse. If someone is irresponsible with it, then you should IP ban them. Racism should not be allowed. That's you VCdrivesaporcshetowork.

Any other ideas?

Tally so far:
FOR= 18
AGAINST=10
DON'T CARE= 2

I am for the rep system. It was just some little emos (Gaywaiz, Hotsizzle) b!tching like " he left me a bad comment". Like teenage girls having their periods.

I agree. I like the idea of the reputation system. It's cool. It gives a chance for people to be rewarded for their good threads and posts.

Against - There is always going to be blatant misuse of this system and it'll just make the admins work harder to moderate them.

If we're gonna have a reward system I'd really prefer money.

Agreed. There's no need for it, and quite frankly it was just stupid. It was abused before, and it would be abused if reinstated.

I don't want to see people quoting long-ass posts anymore, saying:

Quote:

or

Quote:
:stupid:

What the hell does "I'm with stupid" mean anyway? That you are "with" stupid, and you think the same as him? Why would you be "with" stupid?

Anyway, I think reputation will inspire good posts from posters, and the crap will be cut out all together if we can see who is repping who.

Like say GOBB negative reps me because I make a trashy thread (fair enough), and I negative rep him for neg repping me, then people will see and they can gang up on me. I like the system. As long as it doesn't turn into hate wars.

P.S. I had pos repped GOBB a few times too, and gee. TMOGE got some love too. It's only that Gay beckham guy, the dumb knicks fan and the dumb mavs fan that I neg repped often.

When I hired you as a private eye, the last thing I expected was you to tell me my girlfriend's knickers smelt like Chili Con Carne.
