Yeh i think this is a good idea, Admim might have already thought of this anyway as he is taking ages swicthing the neg rep off.

I think thats a good idea, when you leave a comment your name automatically registered beside that comment

agreed, although i dont really think it matters, at the end of the day what does it mean, i think along the lines of sticks and stones etc. I for one would be disappointed if it went completely, but hey thats just my opinion. i guess i may get some neg for saying that but so what, i still sleep tonight, and i'll still have to go to work in the morning.....does it really matter
#3
To be honest, I don't think it will make any difference because even if you force a minimum number of characters you could just leave ..................................... as a comment.

I do agree in general though, despite my above comment I always leave a comment with my rep.

I think some people would be less inclined to leaving rep if they were forced into making a comment, even though i know it's very easy to say something like "thanks for the deal/advise" etc.

Also i'm new around here so i don't know how much this has been in discussion but i think switching neg rep off would be a disaster, as some people might start getting rude, which would really be a shame because this is a very pleassant forum that makes me really appreciate everyones kindness and helpful nature.

In that case, that is why why have moderators! If people are rude or trolling, that is where we intervene. If you see a post you're concerned about, use the http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif button on it.

That's a good point reallyfriendlyman, if the negative reputation is switched off, people might be offensive in the forums more often.

I htink it would be far better if we scrapped the rep stuff althogether & just had a thianks system like MSE.

Just my 2p's worth!

It's all too easy to leave rep.....I definitely think the username should be shown next to the rep too....Then people would really have to think about why they are leaving good/bad rep in the first place.

Before moving to a mandatory situation, why not voluntarily leave a comment along with username when leaving rep ... :santa:
#10
This is why there has been such a big debate on this topic, people abuse it and dont leave a name or comment

The trouble with that is some can easily leave a negative comment with someone elses username in the comment so it appears it has come from them - it happened to me. I guess the mods could determine who this person really was, but it would be nicer for the system to generate the username of the person who left the rep, if negative rep is to be kept. That way people may not leave neg. rep for childish reasons.
#12
Agreed :santa:

Its the abuse which concerns people...
#13
2 negs in 2 days obviously the same person, seriously not happy.

I dont actually care ive been negge'd just shows someone cant say things to my face, or rather screen as there not actually talking to me,
Rep seriously needs changing as after this rep ive thought about leaving

IM FED UP OF COLD VOTING AND UN-NEEDED NEGATIVE REP FROM COWARDS WHO CANT SAY WHAT THERE PROBLEM IS.

I felt i had to "shout" that as no-one seems to be listening.
#14
I`ve just had a neg saying "rip offs belong on ebay" regarding one of my for sale threads. If people don`t want or like a deal thats offered don`t neg anonymously but leave a reply.

It appears admin has disabled his/her own reputation. (i may be wrong. apologies if thats the case)

And to the person who negged me..............you have personally attacked my integrity and i do not appreciate it at all.

These people wont leave a name as there afraid of being neg'ged back.
#16
The solution is simple. Get rid of the rep system and change over to a simple 'thanks' system. You can only therefore leave a thankyou. Will stop all of this.

It is annoying though when you post up a deal and some idiot who must have a decent rep score themselves comes along and votes is crap. I know they have a decent rep score as it plummets to about -10.

Makes you look stupid as the poster then! Often all your doing is giving people a chance to share the cheapness!

Yes, he has.
#18
You all worry to much, its just numbers and green squares. If a deal is good enough a few neggers wont make a difference, high rep or not.

I agree...members who make the effort to post deals should NEVER be negged ....if you don't like the deal move on.
Also if you know of a better deal then leave a comment with a link to that deal..or better still post the deal yourself...I think while the neg rep facility is around it will continue to deter some members from posting and they also fear the "COLD" rating ..so maybe this could be changed so that you only can vote a deal up or sideways..not into minus territory.
#20
yet again, some mindless idiot has negged me with "whinger" on my for sale thread in reply to my post complaining about the orig neg rep.
#21
It's got to be a couple of people trolling.

I think my best score so far is 8 neg reps for saying 'bring them on' :p
#22
But some deals are no where near the best price so the cold feature lets other members know that this is not a hot deal.

if thats the case then admin/mods should ban them...they do know who negs who.
#24
Why should people be banned for using a system the forum allows them to use?

It's a crap system, I think everyone agrees but nothing is being done about it so just get over it, all this moaning and whingeing is just plain annoying...more annoying than getting an 'unfair' negative rep or cold vote on a deal 0_o

No I don't think it is. There are a lot of neggers. Now we know about it so much, cause everyone talks about it so much!

Was thinking something was wrong!

Which is user feedback, which is all good in business!

Though its not as its people moaning! We were told though that this would be sorted out and the negatives taken away, about a month ago...

What a lot of drama over a few coloured boxes !!! there is more to life {well mine any way } than being a solar flare and having lots of little green boxes. People use this site to get good deals or advice and share their deals or advice with others. If the neg or pos rep is there to be used why do people cry blue murder if they get a negative comment ? Why is a person a coward if they do not leave their name with the neg rep ? people dont leave names with a pos rep as that would be seen as fishing for pos rep back wouldn't it? If some one votes a post cold so what? what difference will it make to your life on the whole ? Saying you are going to leave the forum just because you got two neg reps in two days smacks of attention seeking, its not a popularity contest. It seems the ones who scream the loudest about getting a negative are the ones with the most green boxes so already have lots of good rep and the negative will not make a difference to their "popularity" on the whole.

You would nto be saving if people didnt post deals.

The people that post those deals, a lot of us, are getting abusive feedback and neg's for doing so, also its just annoying that some idiot has to come along and vote you cold for no reason in the slightest.

As seen above, people are starting to wonder why they bother...so there won't be as many deals for people like yourself to save on.

It's not about getting back in prams, it's about the whole thing. Why bother posting a deal if your just gonna get abuse for doing so?

A good example of this is posting a very very cheap colour laser printer up, nothing wrong with it, free delivery, HP printer, £30-40 cheaper than anywhere else. 2 negs no positives, it's on a minus temp, even though people said 'good stuff' and one poster commented on the temperature and wondered why.

Post a free sim, 1 neg no positives, minus temperature.

So, why bother?

people dont leave names with a pos rep as that would be seen as fishing for pos rep back wouldn't it?
Erm, no. I've started to do this, and would do, were i to leave a neg for anyone. I think it's a bit weird to receive comments and not know who(m) they're from, so i have started to add my name, and i am not fishing for folks to leave it in return, just nice for folks to know who are the ones to say thank you for the effort you put in.

I don't find many deals, but when i know what's what in a deal, or can help in anyway, i'll always try. Sometimes i won't cos someone has said it all before and i cannot add value, but what little i do know, i'll share. I'm all over the L6 Moto thread, plus someone had the grace to say thank you, when i mentioned in one of the (many) Wii threads about amazon getting a 3pm-4pm deal online, they said without me, they'd not have got one. That made it ALL worthwhile. That's why we appreciate the feedback. A simple Thank You is sometimes all folks would be grateful for around these parts. There are too many folks who cannot just say even thank you and that's sad.

If folks feel that a deal is cold, by all means say so, someone did in one of mine the other day, and i accepted that but negativity should be reserved for negative comments, such as personal attacks, comments that are not justified not left for deals they do not agree with.
