Re: Scrap Rep

like Wakey said, it serves a purpose in the actual PA forums, where everyone doesnt pos rep everyone to get more green blobs.

Re: Scrap Rep

I believe GD will be more fun, more free, more dynamic and less tensioned with the removal of the rep system.

maybe it could have three options... (1) stay as it is, (2) accountable rep, or (3) scrap it, and (3) only applies if it's greater than the sum of (1)+(2)

why?

this board has never been democratic.

That has been it's eternal strength.

Besides there's no reason to suggest getting rid of rep would improve anything, so why take it away from those who like it? You could always turn it off like s|k.

Re: Scrap Rep

Id like to point out that a poll wouldnt actually decide the matter at all. It would just give an indication as to public feeling.

Like any good dictator Id take this with a grain of salt because fundamentally i know what you all want.

Yes i do.

and dont argue.




p.s. there is actually an option that i could turn on which allows people to 'opt out' of the reputation system should they so wish. However you can still rep these people its just that their reputation isnt displayed and the comments are hidden until they turn it back on.

Seems a little pointless...

Re: Scrap Rep

Oh and i would like to point out that the Reputation system has been a startling success on the PA Related forums and totally removing it just because GD 'wants it that way' isnt really in the best interests of the forums overall.


Sorry dudes.
If it was an obvious failure you know id just scrap it and think of some other hair brained scheme but in some areas its worked a treat.

Is there no chance of turning it off on a selected forums, or maybe splitting rep so that we have a "GD Rep - and maybe throw RP into it too" and then the current rep for the other forums. That way if people here want to continue repping in the GD way then they can but it also wont effect peoples serious rep on other forums where it matters more than it does here

Re: Scrap Rep

I don't mind the current system (though I'd prefer accountable rep given the choice) and I also think this option you have for individuals to turn it off should be implemented for those that want it (then perhaps they'll shut up going on about it).

Recalibration so that everyone isn't on "full blobs" would be welcome too, eg. 20000 for 11 (though I realise this is unlikely as you have to consider the other boards)

Re: Scrap Rep

Yahwe :

"Further, he ought to entertain the people with festivals and spectacles at convenient seasons of the year; and as every city is divided into guilds or into societies, he ought to hold such bodies in esteem, and associate with them sometimes, and show himself an example of courtesy and liberality; nevertheless, always maintaining the majesty of his rank, for this he must never consent to abate in anything."

- Machiavelli



Wakey :

The only thing Vbulletin allows you to turn on/off in terms of 'rating' things is the rating of threads. I checked and seemingly there is no real way apart from creating seperate usergroups and if i did that i might as well just turn on the option of 'allow user to select whether they use rep or not' because fundamentally it would be the same thing.

Re: Scrap Rep

actually, it's probably because you've got 18 positive levels rather than 11, delete a few and it would work

Re: Scrap Rep

I'd like to retain the comments others make about my posts, but scrap anonymity and the numerical rating system. Without the last two people may be disuaded from making personal attacks* over reputation as 1. there would be no effect in them doing so and 2. they would soon become known for doing as much. In any case, a system which effectively rates users on a numerical scale is made a farce of by 'ironic repping' and users repping people over posts.




*By personal attacks, I don't mean criticism relating to the post, or even the poster in general, but, for example, neg repping for wishing another a happy birthday with the justification that that user is a 'twat'.

very much agree with this, if you cant shut the system down then make sure ppl cant rep unless they are known, that would certainly make me loose 80% of the reds:P

Re: Scrap Rep

I'm thinking what we should do is abolish the blobs and the numbers and I'll just assign every poster a rating between 1 and 10 in such fields as thread creation, witty replies, informative nature and so on and so forth until if you don't shut up complaining about rep I'm going to punch your mother in the face.

Re: Scrap Rep

Hey wait. That's a good idea.

**** rep.

Let's all be rated on how much we'd like to punch each other's mothers in the face. I think that's a fair, equal, democratic way of sorting this out. And as I'm sure you'll agree, it's a win-win situation all round.

why not just increase them even more, as it stands, the rep system means nothing on this board, due to the fact that you can get to the top amount of blobs very easily, and i imagine that this is the case on the other boards as well. So, by upping the limits even more you might do everyone a favour, as i know that i dont know which comment is better than which other comment and i imagine that a lot of people don't hover over the blobs to look at the comments anyway

oh, and turning on the 'opt out' feature would be nice

yes, instead of using 10,000 as a limit, let's make it 1,000,000,000,000,000. That way we'll all have one green (or red) blob.

Re: Scrap Rep

would it not be just a better idea to remove the POINT system and just leave the comment section for the rep thing in. that way the poster gets feedback and none of the extra crap.

The problem is your all acting as if GD is the only board on this forum. Yes the rep system is pretty pointless on here because you lot are all in a little cliche with people you like and people you dont and as such you give rep based on that. People on this forum hand out pos rep for the shittest of posts and hand out neg rep for the most petty of things and there does seem to be a "you give me rep i'll rep you back" cluture on here also.

Theres really very few really 'quality' posts on here (most are very in jokey, closed conversations that quickly develop into sillyness, insults and off the cuff remarks) yet its people whom almost soley reside on GD that hold the majority of the top rep position and thats because of the differnt of attitudes to the other forums. If you dont come here often and your face doesnt fit here you wont get a decent rep level easierly from the other forums yet as these are forums for "PLANETARION" its the "PLANETARION BASED" forums where the rep system has the most impact and we shouldnt just make all none GD posters seem insignificant and shit to fit in with GD's slap each other on the back attitude

The statementy may tar everyone with the same brush BUT it is largely true. The GD community is very much a clique where often the quality of a post doesnt matter but your status in the group does as does your ability to put down 'outsiders' and those of lower standing. Not saying its a bad thing as the GD community is a strong community but at the same time is so comepletly differnt to the rest of the forum and is probally the most off topic forum that really its bears little or no relevance to the running of the forum as a whole. Removing rep or upping the level may be great for GD but it isnt for the rest of the forum where rep means more when it comes to posting quality rather than just community standing

Re: Scrap Rep

I entirely disagree. If you come in posting shit and posting lots of it people will mentally categorise you as an imbecile unworthy of attention. If you come in posting sensibly you'll be accepted fairly easily. This whole GD is a clique thing is insanely wrong. Not to sound egotistical or anything but I think I'd know if we all sat in some corner talking about circle repping each other or whatever. It's worse than those stupid posts which assume mods just sit there planning how to make the boards a more ****ed up place just to enjoy themselves. There's no conspiracy, people just don't like shit posts.

i think it has to do with the daily activity of most GD posters as well. On AD or other PA related parts of the boards you will find only very few posters that post daily and more than 1 time in a thread and even less who create own threads as well ( Sometimes because there is just nothing going on alliance wise like the last weeks of r14 where AD was about dead).

GD creates a lot more threads and posts and for that probably more rep as well - that combined with the higher rep level because of more posts per user leads to super rep users quickly
(there are not many 1000+ post users on AD for example)

If thats the case how comes you have so many Green Blobs. On any other forum some of the unhelpful, totally off topic replies you have posted here would have got you a barrage of neg rep.

If I had posted

You know that bee gees video for stayin' alive with the three of them walking down the street singing in those insanely high-pitched voices which make you wonder if they were secretly aliens looking to take over the planet through their audio waves washing across the population subconsciously convincing us all to "get down" while they get on with the tedious matter of usurping the leaders of every country on the face of the planet?

That was pretty cool wasn't it?
to suggestion on the Suggestions forum I would have certainly received neg rep for it BUT I'm willing to bet the rep you got from these was positive. And theres alot of people with many green blobs whom all over the first page have posts of a simerlar vein whom I'm sure werent neg repped. This is the way GD is and always has been, elsewhere your posts would be seen as shit and spam (as we saw when GDers invaded Jolts forums) but here they are held in highish regard as they are seen as "funny" even if they arent relevent and hey thats fine BUT you can hardly use GD as a template for deciding the rep system settings when this is the case as its simply not a normal forum

Re: Scrap Rep

Maybe some posts are better suited to certain forums? Maybe there's a reason I don't post like that on other forums? Maybe you're the ones who aren't normal? Frankly I think I've done enough for these forums to be allowed to post one off-topic reply when I'm confronted with the eighth billionth repeat in the question "why do we have rep i don't like it it's mean and hateful i hate you you're not my parents you can't make me do anything life isn't fair i want some chocolate what's the meaning of life and tell me all these things now now now now now".

Re: Scrap Rep

Hey, I was just wondering who was in this GD clique and do they have any openings?
thx ta

PS: no matter what you think, every single post in my "Pos-Rep The Poster Above You Thread" circle jerk I mean thread merited the positive feedback it received. Any facts/evidence to the contrary is just commie propaganda.

PPS: before you get a job as dictator for life, you should have to demonstrate your abilities as an internet forum mod. JammyJim can be my dear leader any day.

PPPS: and for the green blobs, they should be on some log scale obviously. Despite what people on other forums may think, there's a difference between 2000 and 10000 rep.

i'd say:
16K = 11 blobs
8K = 10
4K = 9
2K = 8
1K = 7
500 = 6
250 = 5
150 = 4
100 = 3
50 = 2
10 = 1

or something like that.

Eown wakes up, in the dark of night, utterly surrounded by barriers and mental defects, chaos amongst what was order. Ill have to dream now.
That you will something replys. You will indeed. Always running from the truth of things. I dont run, I fight my problems
and this is the attitude of enlightenment is it?
Of course it is. Clean and healthy minds require philosophical problems to determine their paths.
Of course, of course. The revenge in your heart clouds your mind. Next time, think before you fight. You've got the darkness within you now. The black blood within your veins. Give up revenge and accend past them, to victory, instead of making it easy for them now....
You know nothing!
I know everything, and i am you.
With those words, or... thoughts, The sound dissapates, driving away into the darkness, until Eown's mental form is overwhelmed by the strength of the arguments, amongst other things. Waking up, he snaps forward, a cold sweat covering his skin. Trying to stand, Eown looks down at the cuts, and the tainted flesh. He bows his head, allowing a single tear to escape his eyes before drifting off back to sleep.
