    Turn it on. Let people see what other's think of them. Doesn't have to be permanent.

    Re: User Reputation Feature - Should We Use It?

    Posting truths that others don't want to read would lead to a lower "reputation," whether deserved or not.
    If you were going to do something like that, perhaps a "Like" or "Dislike" button, with only a single vote per person so trolls couldn't "dislike" someone hundreds or thousands of times.
    I just don't see how this would improve the discussions, more a waste of time/popularity contest

    How about a "TROLL" button? Get 10 separate troll posts in a week and go on a 2 day automatic ban. Then even people we just don't like will eventually get lost. Demoncracy works!

    LIKE


    ----------------------------------------------


    Based on the other threads/discussions, I think the goal is to get more, and more active users.

    There is a "select few" that can't accept; reality, someones OPINION or some combination of the two, yet the same "select few" do the exact thing, in the other direction, and see nothing wrong, some peoples opinions change based on the web-site they are on, not sure it can get more absurd than that. This has to lead to chasing people away, or at least their reluctance to visit and post.

    Nick, I applaud your efforts, and support whatever you decide to, or not to try.

    Re: User Reputation Feature - Should We Use It?

    No because my rep would be always negative for a few reasons that I list below.

    1. I like American cars
    2. I like GM , and don't think they are inept idiots.
    3. I do not believe that Cadillac's are driven by vagrant thugs who live in the " hood ".
    4. I actually have an earthly clue even though only vaguely of what I am talking about.
    5. I actually defend those who hold GM in high regard, and want GM enthusiasts to feel comfortable posting without the threat of being lambasted.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    Re: User Reputation Feature - Should We Use It?

    I voted no, because we're all creatures of bias, and inevitably what we will wind up doing if a reputation feature is subsequently implemented here on the forum will be to simply sanction posts from those whose opinions we approve of and chastise those we don't, regardless of the relative merits contained therein. It won't in any way be a reliable indicator of the value, or lack thereof, that each individual poster contributes to this forum. All it will prove to be is a popularity contest, and I think it's readily apparent that those who post most frequently don't necessarily contribute the most to the discussions that take place here on GMI.

    They are installing it right now, so give it a bit to get everything settled.

    We're going to try it for a bit and see how it goes.
