Default Changes to Reputation System

Hi everyone,

Recently we've been seeing more and more complaints about the reputation system. The system was originally implemented as something fun and lighthearted. It was never intended to be something taken seriously. As always, however, a few people seem to try and ruin the fun for everyone.

This time we're not allowing those few that want to be jerks with the reputation system to ruin the fun of everyone. To keep the system in place for those who like it and help mitigate the complaints of those that do not, all members with more than five (5) posts can now disable their reputation. Previously, this was limited only to site subscribers, VIP members, and members with more than 500 posts.

You will still be able to see reputation comments; however, positive and negative reputation will not show to the public should you choose to disable your reputation. This is a two-edged sword; it also means reputation you leave for others will not count.

We're trying our best to ensure ggFTW appeals to the widest audience of gamers and keep everything as fair as possible for our members. Please help us create the best MMO and MMORPG community on the net by being courteous to your fellow ggFTW members.

All the best,

-- ggFTW Staff

I would personally suggest to get rid of it completely (as I have said in the past). It serves no true purpose to the forum, and anybody can de/rep for any reason at all; this can cause grief and unnecessary drama.

Even a well known scam artist/gigantic jerk can amass tons of positive rep (I do agree it's a bit near impossible), so it's not like rep is any sort of indication of where a person stands in the community anyway.

Well this is a nice touch, though personally I've never found a problem with reputation.

You won't find a problem with the system unless you've become personally attacked through it. Basically anybody can de-rep you for any reason at any time; this becomes frustrating when the reason for the de-rep is out of pure jealously/hatred/bigotry and the comment they leave is degrading.

@Vith, it was never intended as an indication of "community standing." It's purely cosmetic and just as many like it as dislike it. That's why we expanded the option to disable it to all members; it doesn't make sense to punish those who like it because of a few who would abuse it. Rather, if people dislike it they can just turn it off and that's that

You have a good point, NoeJeko. At any rate, thank you for the changes to the reputation system.

This is definitely a change for the better. In my personal opinion at least, I think that the double edged sword idea is really well done so that there won't be rep wars or any crap like that. I personally like the rep system because part of what I base trust on is their rep points @_@ although I'm rather picky with it... and I know it wasn't intended for that purpose, but it subconsciuously does that to people.. I think 8D

Yayy ^o^ Great job you guys this was def. a great step, and I think this is more then enough. It's simple just turn your rep off now if you want ^-^. I do hope the negative reps do stop cause sometimes those comments be plain old nasty >: ! SPREAD THE LOVE PPL<3~ When I rep I always make sure to say that and you should all take that to mind just try spreading the love =3

This is a good update, but I have a question btw of the mentioning of a ''rep war''.

How often can you change if you want to activate or deactivate your reputation? Cause if you could just choose to activate it again you could still join a rep war. But if there's like a certain time delay on re-activating it, that could help against this.

I doubt this update was made with rep wars in mind though. Just a thought!

Personally I don't have any problems with the reputation system, I think it's a fun feature!

Disabling rep only disables its visibility to other users. You can still be repped/derepped and the number still stays.

Yea but you could still rep with power before, am I right? Now they changed it so that your rep will only be a comment without any points.

Members who choose to disable their reputation have never had any "rep power". This is no change -- any "points" revert to zero once one disables his or her reputation.

Yup. Some people get butt-hurt so easily over a de-rep that it's not even funny :P
