The problem with a rep system is that it's too easily abused. With a site like Ebay, there is a control, you can't give feedback unless you buy or sell something, and you can only give feedback one time per transaction. But here, a troll could flood someone with negative rep points just by hunting down posts. If there were an easy way for mods to easily rescind all neg reps done by one person, I would have no problem with the idea. But, if such a power is restricted to admin, and oldman had to delete every individual neg rep after a troll flooded someone, that would be a major problem. Oldman would spend most of his time correcting rep floods alone.

it's not that easily abused at all because if you choose to give somebody a negative rep it just doesnít automatically take away from their rep you have to report it first, and you only report it if itís really bad, look at the bottom of my post and that is what it says when you decided to try and give somebody a bad rep, basically you only give people rep points, (that's for the bodybuilding.com rep system)

Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.

we had that in another forum

they put a flood control so could only click on one person each hour, bt it did not work

one guy did not like me( )so he went in every hour and gave me a neg pt and because of that I got dropped in that system, so I posted about it in the forum and then everyone clicked plus on me and then it worked wrong the other way

Every forum is going to be different and you just have to learn to work within it. After 24 posts boxing_kid I highly doubt that is ample time to make judgements about a site and how it should be run.

Please restrain yourself. Dereck made a valid point about different forums. Rep points are really a joke, since they can be abused so easily. Even Bullshido has all but stopped usung them, because so many people don't use them right.

I think Dereck was also trying to say that if you hang around here long enough, you will figure out who is full of BS and who isn't. You don't need rep points to tell you.

Also, personal attacks and name calling are a quick way to get banned here. Consider this a warning.

well if you don't want to use the idea then that's not that big of deal that wasn't my point, that can be up to you guys whether to use it or not but he didn't have to reply like that, and you giving me a warning, for what? personal attacks "having a bad day or what" wow that's a big personal attack, your taking his side clearly because he has been here longer, and i never called him a d1ck i said "are you trying to be a d1ck", he could of just said

"Every forum is going to be different and you just have to learn to work within it."

and i wouldn't care but he didn't have to say

You made your suggestion. You got some responses. You are using inappropriate language. Again. You need not be insulted if people do not fall all over themselves agreeing with you on every subject. Get used to it. Life is like that.

Restrain the language, and don't play semantics.
