    Default Forum Reputation Function

    During the early days of the forum, everyone could give positive and negative reputation points for posts they liked or disliked. As this function was abused it was soon restricted to the forum crew only.

    I would like to see this function reintroduced to general forum users as it could breath some life back into the forum.

    It could be released as a whole to all forum users on a trial basis, or it could be rewarded through competitions or by reaching a certain amount of gained reputation points.

    Judging by the rubish on the forum I seldom look in... most of it is just trying to play teams up against each other with funny gossip stories, called fun ! So yeah, I am keen on a thumbs down/up that might actually help me be more selective with what I want to read or what is a waste of time !

    Hey wgn
    Thanks for the suggestion I remember well why the system was turned off to crew only but i agree that perhaps the time is right to think about a trial.

    I will discuss with the crew about how we can best manage reputation and will get back to you in the near future.

    As long as the function wasn't abused, then I think it would be a good idea to reintroduce the ability to give reputation to others. The forum is so quiet these days, I don't mind reading a bit of banter between alliances. We need to encourage people to both post and stay, so if anyone has any ideas, please feel free to PM me - I get email notifications on my phone so even when not online I can always be contacted.

    I think the best way to make sure it wasn't abused is to show who likes/dislikes said posts. Just like a facebook like. Knowing that you're be visable for liking or not liking something would discourage users to abuse the feature possibly.

    I think you should probably only be allowed to be positive, easiest way to avoid some of the downsides would just be to stop people being able to follow people they don't like round to dislike every post.
