Saint gives us a system that is nothing like several of us suggested, then uses his (g)modlike powers to game the system when he had clearly stated that gaming the system was a concern, then doesn't clearly explain why he did it, promises to change everything, and disappears without changing anything.

Yep, it's just like god.   >:D  ;D

Heh. Fair cop. I'll look for a comment karma system instead of a user karma system.

That was me sticking a knife in le chuck's ribs :)

I'm going to take the rep system back out.

... when I have time to sit in front of the computer and fix it if taking it out breaks it. Which won't be for a bit.

too many ---uvulas--- (including me) on here to have a rep system. It becomes an epeen contest for some reason. I feel like a dick because I was going around upvoting people for giving constructive criticism , good technical advice, etc when I guess I was just supposed to be randomly upping people and finding ways to downvote others.

How many days did we have the toy for?  When it's new and shiny it's going to get played with, once that passes it settles into a useful too.  What was the damage?  A few extra rep here and there? 

Here's a new idea:

Under the avatar list the number of post likes a person has and their number of followers.  Between those two numbers I think it could be useful.  People see Ond or Pixel poking around and notice they have a few thousand followers it's gets a message across that they're doing some cool stuff.  People see PL1 with a few thousand post likes and they know he puts out good poop.  Likes linked to posts, followers linked to users.  No dislike, no DO NOT FOLLOW, keep it positive. 

Sure I'll follow my friends and like good posts, that's the idea - that way it creates a useful web of information. 

Oh and for chrissakes somebody rein in that persnickity forum admin/siteowner/sasquatch

wishful thinking. there aren't a few thousand active people, and sounds like a lot of work and we know how the administration feels about work :)  :cheers:

The core issue is, the rep is supposed to be some sort of beacon of who is worth listening to. If you're on the boards for more than a week you sort of figure that out on your own. If its not supposed to shine the light on the good apples then it does only serve as some sort of epeen thing, not an epee  that's a sword. Id rather them make a separate BST section for vendors (even a sub forum under the BST section). Its a pain in the dickhole to scroll down 2 pages to get to the new posts after all the damn stickies, that or trim the ---fudgesicle--- out of the stickies.

When it comes down to it, I don't have a dog in this fight. I am a somewhat helpful fellah who is also a part time ---uvula---, not a great apple, but certainly not a terrible one.

That's nice of you to admit to being forum garbage.
I somewhat agree -- I feel like I've been swimming in a septic tank for Up-voting you after unsuccessfully trying to restore your Reputation score.   :P
I solemnly promise to never Up-vote you again,  :tool:.

Oh God.  First ebay switches to the twitter/facebook jargon and now it's coming to BYOAC?
I didn't come here to "follow" anyone, or have them get annoyed that they "followed" me, but I didn't "follow" them back.
Please make it stop.

Yeah, I don't think we need "followers".

Being able to give a post some karma/rep/like would be good enough for me.

If everyone is getting all namby pamby about a made up number, maybe there is a way to break down the meaning so it isn't interpreted as a popularity contest. Do something like a vote count for "Helpful Post" and another for "Funny Post" and give all you brownie scouts nice little badges when you hit certain vote counts.

Conga lines... man, I probably shouldn't admit this but I used the Conga Lines forum in a graduate marketing class as an example of online promotions gone exploited. 

So.. thanks?

We had one here for years.  There was a child thread in B/S/T where they were listed.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

I think we need to give it a shot, at least long enough for the "oh look! New and shiny!" phase to wear off. It could help keep threads more informative by keeping down the number of "+1" and "hey that's cool" posts in a thread. But yeah, it's definitely a zoo when it's first available. And just to echo my previous comments... Positive is noting without negative, this isn't peewee flag football, we're adults here and can manage without participation ribbons and orange slices.

The rep system was a bit of fun, something different, pity it was dumped so quickly, must have upset some people.  Maybe some here just take things too seriously.  Seriously.

it started out okay...

then saint went a little crazy and gave some people -1000 karma and others +1000 and then it turned into a pissing contest...then someone had 9001 and then it was over.

While it's very nice of you to imagine me with steaming hot ropes of the unspeakable frothing forth from my loins in an auto-erotic crescendo, no that isn't actually the case.  Firstly Mr. Carter's delightful tune which I had stuck in my head is not about loving one's self so much as loving others.  Thirdly, I have no second point. 

I'd rather Tapa talk work than revisit rep.

Word.
The chances of that happening are even less than rep being brought back, tho admittedly of much greater use to the community.
