I think, possibly just get rid of ALL rep, it causes so many rows here.

After all, if someones really pleased with a deal or post they can pm the poster, in the past, ive sent a thank you pm.

Is it possible just to get rid of neg rep while you decide what to do with the system as it is?

Doesn't need to be removed as long as people know its not personal and shouldnt be taken to heart.

Well those that are daily visitors should be well aware of the members that have some something valid to say, those that know their stuff on certain products, and those that will inevitably try to assist when asking for assistance.
You also get to know those that join just to pick up a deal, give little thanks and are prone to multi applications that spoil it for everyone else.
There are also those that seem to use this forum to express views that would be better placed on forums that encourage open debate...and often allow abuse from the contributors as part of the heated discusiion.
I use this site for what it is designed..yes to save money on my purchases and try to help other members whenever I feel I have something vailid to contribute....fortunately the majority seem to be likeminded which is why I never get that bothered by the occasional "unheathy" attitude that is sometimes part of the forum.
I totally agree with Admin..there is far too much rep/neg rep talk and I would even ban those that have the begging for rep sentence as part of each post they contribute.

It maybe an idea to delete the negativity threads started recently and have one of the mods or admin draw up a locked, pinned topic about Site Etiquate

Well said - currychops....i Agree 100%

[SIZE=2]I reckon either the ability should be no rep or positive rep only. [/SIZE]

What I notice is that the ones who are moaning about it are the ones with lots of posts and lots of positive rep already, the newer members seem to take it with a pinch of salt!

Well, my last post on the matter then...since the admin has asked it be dropped.

Make some guidelines for using the rep system while it is being decided what will be done with it in the meantime, seriously..it'd take a moderator 10 minutes to whack up a sticky thread with a few dos and donts. I know someone got banned the other day for 'abusing' the system, but I think that is totally unfair as there are no rules or guidelines.

Add the 'thanks' hack, it's been suggested before, it solves all problems because there's no stupid boxes for people to get all stressed about, there's no way to leave a negative thanks and it just seems entirely more appropriate for a forum of this nature.

A member was banned for leaving negative rep signed by other member's names. I would hope we don't need a sticky thread to let people know that's unacceptable!

common sense at last, really is something about nothing. an excuse for the moaners to moan. it doesn't make you a better/worse person because someone leaves positive/negative rep. get over it people

i dont see the need for neg rep anyway when this site is based on voluntary info, no cash is given for the info so if you read a post and dont like it or its no use to you personally theres nothing lost, s why the need to complain? unless the post is abusive, then thats a different matter of couse and would no doubt be dealt with by admin, anyway im new to this so who wants my opinion! :)

The whole rep and hot/cold thing is a bit of a waste of time really. It's badly designed and just leans towards a very small selection of members having all the say on whether something is good or bad.

Nobody has ever explained how come someone who just consistently posts deals from mse, find-dvd, other forums etc. is somehow magically more able to decide whether a deal is good or not than someone who doesn't.

One person, one vote/degree/rep/whatever). Only fair way.
#12
ooh is this what that green thing is under my join date?!
i wondered what that was,...i agree with everyone saying that as its a deal site you dont really need it,..and also, why would anyone care if you got bad rep or not? lol :)

bah humbug and all that, rep is dead long live rep so to speak , plus I hate red anyway, cant we just have a, lets shout at each other forum?, to vent our frustrations, like going into the sin bin, them who have issues with each other can "get it on" and the rest of us can hang on the side line goading each of them on or at worst joining in trading insults..ooh I am getting all excited about it already :giggle:

just got neg rep twice for no reason, can ask what is happening about the rep scheme there were threads about this before how admin will look into it and remove the neg rep and only leave postive rep, as this is getting very annoying.

[SIZE=1]NO, that's means you got a neg for your post. We posters, have no way of actually knowing who left the neg.[/SIZE]

He who gives a fcuk about 'rep' needs to get a life...

It means NOTHING.

It stands for NOTHING.

It's worth NOTHING.

So why bother having it - it just winds people up!

You can leave Rep, but it won't affect that persons rep until you have some rep yourself.

It means something to some people and it makes some people happy when they receive positive rep, for being helpful or a good post.

No worries.

Everyone have a Merry Christmas! :santa:

I think the sales are starting much earlier this year and a lot of big savings on items have been posted. I'm sure you will find something.

Is it still not cheaper to get it shipped toyou than buy from where you live?

We are JUST cyber names on here and this is not 'real life'. Whatever people think about you or your posting has NO effect on 'real' life.
I'll give you some positive rep if you want, to cheer you up??
