    You people are acting like this board didn't work before rep was around.

    oh. I thought i missed a thread when axon said "a discussion as well as a poll".

    I don't really care much about removing the reputation system. All i was saying is that it should be discussed publicly , here in general chat , and see what other members think about it (in my opinion).

    Ive found the whole reputation system actually only something where ppl would argue about , wether he deserved the negative rep or not and so on and on....

    Cboard didnt used to have this reputation points system before and things were working fine back then. When they introduced these reputation points ppl started nagging like " Why did i got negative rep for this .??? " and so on...

    Imho it has nothing but absolutely no contribution whatsoever to the board or the "integrity" of the board.

    It even has nasty side-effects , ppl starting to give neg rep for fun and others pos rep for fun, it has brought division ( - looking for this word but cant find it ) , stupid threads, ppl spraying others with neg rep or pos rep just for fun of it ( while other ppl sometimes take this as a serious matter ).

    Im glad the rep system is gone - supposing it was trusthworthy ( as in someone with a good rep would be a very positive addition to the board ) then it would be a good thing, but when i think of all the abuses of it since it has been around I totally agree with this decision.

    About the poll: as said before it wont do anything as well... a poll is also not really a guideline to what the majority of the board thinks - since like also said before not every member is an active member.

    Anyway we will see what the future brings

    I'm not for or against rep. I just wanted to correct that comment.

    Fair enough. What do you think about what I said, though? I think the board is kind of self-regulating in that regard.

    You're right. Most of the time when I screw up, another member is right there to say "Hey, that's wrong, you should do X."

    So rep really isn't needed.

    The rep system, IMO, just makes the senior members look more 'senior'. Look at the ones who have all the rep and look at the one's who don't. Now go figure.
