Presumably the off-topic abuse rebutal posts will end up garnering some negative ratings as well.  Hopefully this keeps the back-and-forth stuff to a minimum.

So when does this go live?  The abusiveness and name-calling is getting outrageous.

That is probably because people still can...

I think it is a good idea, just need to see how all of this will come together.
Furthermore it grieves me to see that development time *has* to be spend on something like this. But unfortunatly it does seem necessary.

Look at it this way.  Now Ken can stop policing the boards so much and get back to work.
Get the CSVExport and Database Query plug-ins here.

Ken,

As a possible extra suggestion for this, is a comment required when placing a negative against someone, in that way at least when a complaint is made you can see why what the thought was behind the decision
This comment would nt be visible to anyone except yourselves and the person that gave the negative mark

Cheers

would this system be used to lend support to someone's tip or idea?
For example, if someone asked how they would do a particular thing in the program, and someone else replied with a particularly good tip - is that when you would give a positive vote, or is that the wrong thing to do?

I think that's exactly the intention of the positive end of this:

We'll soon roll out a new system intended to reward positive helpful posts in our forums, and to deter negativity.



Just a thought of mine aiming to waste some more of Ken's time.   
   

How about different kinds of scores for different aspects?
I mean, you could give a bad rating to someone's bad attitude (let's call them "Nasty" points),  but a positive rating to his/her helpful/clever/interesting posts (let's call them "Helpful" points), and have two separate scores, not compensating each other.

Sounds like a good idea, but if that should come you can possibly kiss version 4.0 goodbye
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

Just so I get it clear in my head, once this begins should we stop pulling users for abusive posts and let our ratings do all the work?
Or should we continue to ask people to moderate their posts?


I'd certainly plan to use votes only. It might look like nothings happening (won't look good for someone new who doesn't know about it), but hopefully it will be effective.

I think it would be better to keep it simple for now.

Is this a DVD Program or a popularity contest? We seem to be headed in the wrong direction here. At this rate based on the comments I have read the last couple of days the program should be renamed...ReputationProfiler.

Anything that makes the online facet of this community more...pleasant, can hardly be considered the wrong direction.  Just my opinion.

For once I really agree with Skip.  To resort to that much used euphemism - watch that slippery slope!

Midnit:

More pleasant according to whom?  We all bring different personalities, expereinces, expertise and so on. We are reduced Online to a Society Online where the standards of behavior are determined by the two sets of people, those with a personal agenda against any give user, and those that simply wish to try and control the behavior of otheres according to THEIR sytandards. How pathetic, that Ken's develoment has to interrupted to apeal to those of both these camps that are simp;ly unwilling to act like adults and  want to desperately impose their will on SOMEONE or SOMETHING. Fascinating to me that the one's most vocal behind this are the same one's who want to twist the Rules every chance they get.

Here's my prediction, having seen such attempts in the past, this will become a game for some that will be used to magnify their piling on and to minimize debate and discussion of those they don't agree withj.. This wastried with the Ignore" system adn all many users have demonstrated through that system how childish and totally uninterested they are indiscussion deabate. Unfortunately, Ken is poandering to these users, first through the PM ignore, then the Forum and now this. We ARE headed in the wrong direction and down a VERY slippery slope.

I am embarassed for the entire Communityy

People who enjoy a civil atmosphere, presumably.

Well I think it's great; I have no doubt that any negative effects will be far outweighed by the positive. Either way, no matter what opposition there is, the whole idea has become nothing short of necessary due to certain trends in the forum.

I daresay Ken's announcement of a "reputation system" already produced some calming down effects, even before actually starting off.
