Respect System

Recommended Posts

Peter_Shaw

I thibnk we should have a Respect system and call it rep. You can click one of 2 buttons under each members name. e.g:

 

Peter_Shaw

 

Player Hater

 

 

[+Rep] [-Rep]

 

 

I have seen it on alot of other sites and it works very well.

It would easily be abused, and I find it adds to pointless competition and becomes a little gimmicky.

 

I've not been fond of it when I've seen it elsewhere before. I think the whole 'Topic Rating' option takes it far enough.

Thats why if you post with good sence and only make topics that are worth more than a few days of discussion, generally helping other members, showing common sence and not flamming people or complaining about things all the time you could get a few of those nice little Karma stars.

Exactly. There are people who don't like you, make a million accounts and proxies, and downvote you again and again. Then of course, idiots tell you to shut up because you're a stupid noob etc.

We've got respect lists in our profiles.

 

We've already lost beloved areas of the forum due to strains on the server - so I don't see why we'd want to burden ourselves with extra little gadgets.

I'm totally for this system, so I can vote Otter down to weiner boy status.

By "other forums", do you mean ProBoards? tounge.gif Hehe.

 

The reason why karma can only be given out by staff is to avoid abuse. This would clearly go against that.

Would be good if:

 

Those who dis/respect you are only visible to yourself. (To avoid flaming)

No karma is given, just some text from your admirer and +/-. (The above reason)

Only one vote on user per IP (!)*. If possible disable voting from proxies (is it possible?).

 

*That is: you have 2 accounts on the same IP and you can vote only from one of them.

Well on PSPISO, you can only give 1 Karma per Hour.

 

But you are correct when you say it would slow the server down.

Lol?

 

Here some people wouldn't get karma for years. You get here for good things you do for the community. ot for pressing some buttons.

Yes! In fact I would be respectin' you so much I wouldn't know what to do with myself, I'd be gettin' like 55 boners and sh*t.

 

Jack, I'm afraid you're the harbinger of a new era at GTAF. We should all be very, very afraid.

Sorry, I have seen this on other forums.

 

In my honest opinion, it's a crock o' sh*t.

Yeah it would just create a negative atmosphere, like who cares about that guy, he isnt even respected. To many ways for it to be abused.

I am a mod on two different sites that have a similar feature and it's as worthless to me as it is to everyone else. I can go and rate all my comments "good" and get "respect" or whatever it's called at that particular site. Anyone else - mods or regular users - can do the same.

 

GTAF has the karma system and it's great for what it is. If you want to shout out to people you respect on the forums, there is a section specifically for that on your profile.
