Petition to bring back Neg Rep

125 posts in this topic

you know how people that have been here for years talk about how the forum has gone downhill and how much better things were in the good ol' days of yore?

well, we actually had more trolls and rival fans talking poo then. it's just that this board had neg rep and was very effectively self-policed.

Bears fans were the worst especially that "bear down" douche.

Neg rep creates more hate and discontent, along with people making alts just to go around dishing it out at random like a sniper.

this is why the old rep system worked better than the last one. someone with little rep could do little damage to the established posters.

any recommendations for the new rep system assuming this gets pushed through?

I like the idea of making an anonymous option again(although it also has potential for abuse).

Also it was too easy for someone to sneak by the system by establishing cred in the other subforums, ie. Grits and the lovely ladies section or the lounge

Perhaps you can only get positive rep in the sports talk forums

I hate petition threads

But this one is worthy.

Signed

Obviously problems aren't addressed for months and years now and it negativley effects both members and Mods.

So may as well enpower the masses, bring back swag and the problems will be sent swiftly to Smack.
