Community Reputation Count Rework


Recommended Posts

Hi, i've noticed that Forum Reputation only counts positive reputation.

For example:

This guy has received Downvote more than Upvote but yet the community reputation listed in a positive note. It would be better if the community reputation also count downvote as net reputation, example of calculation:

Net Reputation = (Upvote+Haha+Thanks)-Downvote

Hopefully this will encourage positive forum atmosphere in the future and punish those who received bad reputation (for example if the reputation exceeds -1000 then they should be muted/banned temporarily from forum).

  • Upvote 4
  • Downvote 1

That was how it used to be kek(except the banning/muting part)
Till some people who got mass-downvoted decided to !@#$ about how it was bad that people could be downvoted and how it was cancerous and toxic to the community.

Btw i think some accounts(like mine) still have negative reps from downvotes

Btw while we are at it, can we get a sad reaction?

Something like this:

Alex deliberately set it up this way and I think it's probably the best approach. It seems your suggestion would just discourage honest participation in the forum, instead encouraging only posting what you believe will be popular otherwise you're just risking getting voted off the forum. In other words, a kind of mob rule censorship. I don't think that's encouraging or inclusive, which seems to contradict what I want from a forum. I downvoted your suggestion to indicate disapproval of the idea, but it doesn't mean I want you removed from the forum or to discourage you participating in it.

you also had people being annoying just to farm downvotes.  Do we need to give people more reasons to be annoying?

 

Well every feature have its pros and cons and every players have freedom to chose what their image would be.
I'm just trying to figuring out an automated moderation mechanics based on a metric/variable.
