    The rep system is just a big 'ol circle jerk and adds nothing to the quality of debate on this or any other forum.
    I'm sure that's how you rate every post you don't like.

    If a post is worth responding to, it's worth responding to.

    What is the point of negging posts without giving a reason as to why you disagreed with it's content? It doesn't add to debate, it detracts from it.

    Just because it used to ruin your entire day when someone negged you.

    It was far too complex, so many sub plots going on I seem to recall you could also add a comment to your rep comment it was totally distracting

    Personally don't think it adds value to the forum and would make the mods jobs harder

    I was up to my nuts in green mate, gaming the system was a piece of ****, oooh, need some green, I'll post a thread praising Shanks...worthless, silly system that encourages childish, needy behaviour and kills conversation.

    There was nothing of the sort and if there was it was a minority. It actually encouraged good posts and quality content. Many of the good posters have now left and I'm sure rep has something to do with it.

    You could add comments initially but they stopped that but it was just greens or reds after that. There was no moderation required.

    What about just positive rep - no negative rep.

    Are you suggesting that, because people could get a post 'liked', it would get them to increase the quality of what it is they are saying? Could the reverse of that not happen - that being where someone holds back on saying something because they are not sure it will be well received, and therefore would get 'negative rep'?

    Also, what if there are posters who you just don't like for whatever reason .. could this not influence you to neg their posts when there are in fact little wrong with them .. or, conversely, just give rep out to posters you do like, irrespective of what it is they are actually posting?

    Would be interested to hear the rationale behind your thinking, Frankly-Mr-Shankly?
    This is exactly right. The rep system was a hindrance to people opening up about what they really thought, only for fear of getting these silly red squares.

    A poster with a long line of red squares was also more open to abuse, as people viewed them as having a bad reputation so fair game.

    You only need look at Lizboy to see this.



    I think something needs to be done about the emojis.

    There's too much bickering going on in this forum and I'm personally sick and tired of getting dragged into petty arguments because after trying to discuss with one person, someone else decides to butt in with a wise remark and a facepalm, or just a facepalm on its own.

    You got posters like Ganymede who post nothing else.


    This thread :FP:

    Bahahahahahaha :FP:

    Oh the stupidity :FP:


    It's replies like this that need to be stamped out.

    This is meant to be a place to debate football, not to use as a platform for putting people down or starting arguments just for the sake of it.

    Who wants to pay 5 a month to constantly have to deal with ignorance and abuse?

    What about the people who are currently paying to use this forum but are put off from posting because they see what's going on?

    Could be some good posters out there being turned away from the idea so all they do is read.


    I think we need stricter rules, longer bans, forum marshal law if you like, until people wisen up and start using this forum as it's meant to be.
    It would be a far better place to be without so many attention seeking trolls who constantly pester other people.


    This isn't a criticism of the mods, there's thousands of posts every day, but the rules need tightening for this place to improve.
    It would also make your jobs a lot easier.

    I could have been banned for a week now for bickering with bigscouse, rather than only deleting the posts.

    I'd also make the minimum ban 1 week.

    A better idea come compromise. Kind of like a "thanks" type system, although still very political and somewhat likely to be made juvenile by those implementing it ie users.

    And it would only encourage people to post things to be popular, that is the post and the poster. I don't mind different views, expressed sensibly and not trying to put words in your mouth all the time or reading between lines when there is only one, or drawing incorrect conclusions to put or keep you on the opposite side of the argument.

    Do we need any kind of system? I come on here to read posts and to post myself, the "experience" doesn't need any enhancement by making it like other social media and forums. Is it some kind of frustration venting function, cause if it is some should try using the internet for frustration release aka master baiting instead of doing the very same thing on here in a very different sense...............
    People will believe what they want to believe

    I do think that the current one suffices.

    We don't need extra comments on posts.

    yeah it's pointless, i get ebays system but the equivalent in a forum would be choosing whether or not to reply to a poster with a load of red boxes
    dont look back in anger.
