I don't think it's very fair to brush off our opinions on the system.

Trial and error.

I've recently come to the realization that dumb members will forever be dumb and chastising them with negrep will do nothing to remedy that. I genuinely think this time around will be fine, as it's been designed to only be rewarding.

But now rep is even more pointless, and a waste of space. It can only be positive and after 6 months most members will just be around the same amount. I don't see the point of rep if we do it like this and I think we'd be better off with a reward/award system. Where things are special and actually mean something

I don't really understand the point of it if you had to reset the system because people were getting negarepped for genuinely stupid posts.

Except that wasn't the only thing going on. People were harassing others through negative rep for petty reasons.

We'll actually be doing more with awards soon :)

Isn't that the exact issue that you all had with the system initially?


It seems that now the system is meant to coddle everyone.

Probably in some gutter.
Anybody who is actually butthurt because the rep got reset needs to seriously reevaluate their lives. If you don't like it, don't acknowledge it. I'm with Ty, I don't believe we'll be having any problems with it anymore.

Sure it's Facebook now, but it's just something extra. Members shouldn't feel obligated to leave just because a group of people think it's fun to hate them and poke at them in secret.

It's happy Communism

I'm just bored with rep all together, it's pointless and could be replaced by a more rewarding and efficient system

Negrep was removed because it only hurts the idea rather than benefit it.

Ergo, removed.

Now only positive rep exists. But you still have to make a post that people like in order to get said rep.

Seriously, this isn't that hard -_-

I don't have an issue with how much rep I have or don't have.

There have clearly been multiple issues with this system and it's probably best to abolish it entirely.

I'm not trying to be rude to any of you, I'm just voicing an opinion.

In the gray area
I'm quite indifferent on this whole situation but I have noted that most of the positive rep I get is for funny posts or posts that someone simply agreed with or sometimes even something completely unrelated like a cool signature gif rather than actual rep worthy posts. I would come up with a ratio if it weren't reset. Heck, I bet people have gotten rep just for saying, "Give me rep."
