This. It is perfectly acceptable to be repped for "contributing to the community", but it is perfectly acceptable to randomly rep someone just for being awesome.

It is, of course, perfectly acceptable for someone to derep you just because "They don't like you".

Ah, cosmetics.

Is it acceptable though for people to use the rep system to provoke, harass, instigate, use sarcasm, offending you and whatnot just because they can leave comments together with it as well?

Just because it is "anonymous" certain people will abuse it in a way or find this an alternative way to get back at you with the above mentioned methods. People, even in this thread, have pointed out this type of thing still happens.

You can say its all just a nifty feature, purely cosmetics, but is there really a need to be able to leave comments whether it be positive or negative?

From what I understood you can disable the rep system, but that doesn't change the fact you will get to see the comments or keep getting repped. They are right in your face when you go to your user control panel as well.

If people want to leave positive feedback in a way they agree, find your post helpful or even have criticism and etc etc (of course as long as it follows the forum rules) why can't they just do it so in the corresponding thread?

I suggest to just remove the ability to leave a comment and just purely have the rep system as the pretty green, black or red colors. Isn't that what the rep system really was for intended, just pure cosmetic. This will cut down on the issues that is presented with this rep system for both the users and staff that are dealing with them as well.

I like the ability to leave and read comments though. If someone did write anything offensive, it's been stated that you can report them.

A lot of this back and forth arguing is to be brought to PM. If it has nothing to do with the whole community, do not bring that drama onto them. A private issues are to resolved privately.

Thank you.

Why was it ever 500 posts or VIP/ect. status to begin with? Just curious, really. I'm really glad it's down to 5 posts now. Also, I think if you disable your rep, you shouldn't be able to see any reputation added/deducted to you or the comments anyone left either. I think I still see people with disabled rep complain about -reps which, well, is just silly to me. Just a suggestion.

I agree with SOC and believe and are of opinion that the suggestion should be put into consideration.

The way the system is now, is just too susceptible to be abused and will bring unnecessary issues which just could've been prevented to begin with.

I don't see why we, the users, can't have the option to disable the rep system totally, as in we're fine not being able to rep or de-rep and getting these reps, de-reps and comments from others to begin with.

I certainly can relate how this poses unnecessary trouble for both ends. It's an annoyance if someone might just try to provoke you in any kind of way through the rep system and you get to see it.

It's there right in the user control panel. You can't be serious if you're going to be telling me "Not like you have to look there" since its right there in your face. I don't personally feel like, and probably others as well, to first getting offended then go bothering some staff about it.

Because of its anonymity there is a higher chance of things like this occurring and less when its public or through PMs. People just love to hide behind things like these rather anyways. We're dealing with a gaming community here as well.

Give us choices like how we can visit the random forum or not as to not wanting to be a part of this rep system as well.
