I have implemented yet a new system for us to use on the forums. Whenever you read a post that you really like you can give reputation to that user. Also, for now, whenever you read a post you don't like you can take away reputation from the user. When reading a post, you will notice on the right side of each post there is a + and a -. A + gives rep and means you liked the post, a - takes away rep and means you did not like the post. I am not sure about the dislike so far, since I don't want this to turn into a popularity contest or to hurt anyone's feelings, but we will try it for a while and see how it works out. Each member will receive one point for a liked post and will have one point deducted for a disliked post. Your reputation will be shown in your posts and profile. Everyone starts off with 0 rep.

Thoughts?

I'm not that crazy about the idea myself. One for the fear you mentioned about popularity contest, but more so that I don't see a real need for it. What DOES it do? A reputation should be established based on contributions to the forum whether someone likes what you post or not. I can also see it as another tool for "flamers" to really "skew" things up. Also, since this is a discussion forum, I think it would be better to have members actually discuss their agreement/disagreement with someone's POV. You asked for thoughts, and these are mine. I'll be around regardless. I do like the ranking system based on number of posts, but I'll add my $.02 over on that thread. Cheers. Very Happy
