[quote=“joesax”]I think that the figures right now are based on post count. The little plus or minus symbols suggest that members will be able to add, or even subtract, from others’ “reputation” scores.
Personally, I’m not keen. It reminds me of high school cliques. I shan’t be using it. If I were to use it, I would simply add the maximum score possible to each and every member, since it is the contribution of everybody that makes the site what it is. Even posters who go through what might be termed “less-than-constructive” periods in their posting still have the potential to contribute a lot, and so I would still be giving the maximum possible score to them. But I shan’t be using it, so other posters will have to take my support and appreciation as a given.
Perhaps I take things too seriously, though. I understand that this particular bell and/or whistle may well be an enjoyable thing for some people to use.[/quote]
It’s candy if it does that. Like a “recommend this post” on yahoo.
It is nice to know that people appreciate your posts, but I would prefer NOT having a subtraction button. What’s the point of that?
Or, we can give people the clap when they are good. :bravo:
