User Reputation

Erased

I've always wondered why there has been no User Reputation system added to the forum I know that it can be somewhat easily added via the forum tools. We used Vbulletin. (mainly using it for short quick comments instead of having to PM someone.) I use to be an admin at Gorillmask.net (AKA GMF Gorilla Mask Forums turned into TeamRawDog. (No longer up and running but yeah you can probably look it up on the wayback machine site.) and we had a rep system where you could write short comments to the poster instead of clogging up a thread with questions that only pertains to that person etc.

I think the reason why User Reputation system hasn't been added is because it'd be greatly abused (people who want to hand out negative rep to users they hate or others gang rep'ing their friends) Also, why would you need to write short comments or a thread with questions pertaining to the user when you could simply PM him/her about it? By default, the IPB Forum Software has a reputation system based on the amount of likes a user has received. It has been working well since the last 4-5 years and should work well in future. Just my 2 cents on your suggestion.

User reputation in GTANet revolves around contributions towards the community. These can very from winning something in our Annual Awards, to do creating a really good thread in the forums.

 

It's mostly scattered around user's profiles right now, but we're in the process of documenting it on our Wiki, a work in progress can be seen here:

There is already a star system, so I think you don't need written form of it. I just checked and this is not a thing anymore, but I would like a dislike feature to be included in the reputation (posts) and dislikes given would also be gauged against likes given, to give an idea how positive and negative a person is. These would have an effect on what the total reputation would be.

This would be abused to no end in a forum like GTAForums. It's been thought of too many times with just negative results. Reputation really has no meaning other than a "like counter" like Facebook. It's not a popularity contest. :)

Can we have a K/D count, then?

No, we can have a like counter. When we first introduced likes and named them Respect (referring to GTA SA), it was already a massive sh*tshow, imagine anything else like dislikes or a K/D count.

If you something like a K/D counter, change your Avatar Title to show you K/D manually....  Believe me, you'll change it back after a few days as the others around you notice.

 

The biggest arguments on here exist around K/D's, because 85% of members couldn't care less and the rest are tryhards that'll mercilessly mock you.

No, I don't. Has anyone ever tried it? Or was it just discussed and rejected?

It’s blatantly obvious that whoever is going to use a dislike button is only going to use it to dislike everyone who disagrees with them’s posts.

 

i can’t think of a single legitimate use for it that won’t be used as a tool for petty internet drama

I hope that's a rhetorical question.

 

Thumbs down create conformist echo chambers, nothing else. Look at Reddit and tell me this cesspool works, even remotely. People abuse such feature, because they are incapable of understanding that someone may disagree with them on something, and still respecting it. It goes to both posts (controversial ones being openly censored on Reddit, and hidden from sight, leaving only those which please the crowd with dominant views) and any possible user reputation system. Don't believe me? Go to any subreddit and say something contrary to the popular position. You'll be first downvoted to hell and beyond, even, or especially if you actually present your arguments in a detailed, repectful manner, and then, most likely, your post will be hidden not to trigger more short-minded authoritarian idiots.

Not mentioning, downvoted posts automatically attract less attention, doesn't matter their quality.

 

So, f*ck downvotes. They are the exact opposite of what a diverse, rich and welcoming community should feature.

If you dislike something just comment or ignore it and move on.

 

There is a user quote me sometimes and I prefer to ignore him when I don't like his comment, but I don't feel is necessary a button to disagree, I mean he understands it if I don't respond to him, simple.
