We should use rep over likes
« on: June 18, 2018, 03:58:33 PM »
I think we should use the reputation system instead of the like system. We should let more people rep and put a system in place to punish people who abuse it.
Guess who's back

Properly bring back rep or get rid of it altogether. It's in a limbo of disuse right now.

Ok
A.put this in the 2 discussions that we already have about the like feature.Dont start a new topic if there are 2 places you can post it
B.So your saying that we should keep the reputation system but also combine it with the likes?!
Ok so here are some flaws with that.

Say you have zero rep. When you get -1 or just 1 it means something as reputation you need to get from doing something that needs to be punished or rewarded. When you look at sounds rep you think oh well if they have -1that shows that they have had issues and I should be wary of them.

With this system your suggestion you would get rep points with likes. So likes are pretty easy to get in comparison to rep as anyone can give them out people like things based on specific posts rather than that persons behaviour overall. This makes it so there is a high lickley hood that anyone would get a high rep. Now say if you did something bad. I assume your trying to say that they should be punished by taking points way a like the system now. The issue with that is that if you have that many rep points/likes you won't look like you have done anything wrong it just looks like you have less likes. My issue with that is that rep points can sort of tell you about the users behaviour but if it's covered up with lots of likes then it won't matter people can't judge who you are.

Tbh I dot  think either are than important but combining the 2 is a horrible idea

Rep is useless as a reputation gauge. Just lurk and look at people's real reputations. Example, over the past few years Sage is at around 10, while most of his peers like a Virus Bomb or Kill (who's no longer a peer, but was) have been at 20.

If someone wants to know if somebody is important or not, they should lurk a bit.

Edit: The same thing will happen with likes btw.

No I meant have the rep system like it is now but let everyone use it. And limit the amount of down reps people can do so people don't use it to abuse others.

I agree. You should make a thread about this issue.

Sometimes i see people with more negative or positive reps that actual ratings.  :really_makes_you_think:
Can you define exactly what you mean by makes sense and irl an no loopholes  in your rules? thanks
