I agree, the rep system is open to abuse. I like the way the forum is right now.

I would say most definitely NO!

I have seen members on forums get completely shut out because of others thinking that their rep is too low for THEIR likings. They would need legitimate help on not even get ONE response.

The rep system is flawed and should not be implemented.

How about a thanks system? No negatives, only positive, like TPU has.

I agree that a rep system is flawed and some people will abuse it. To be rated down simply because someone doesn't agree with you???

I like the idea of some kind of system, like a thumbs up for every time you help someone, just no thumbs down.

Rep system = fail. Just a popularity contest from what I have seen. I never give it and I hate people that ask for rep. Most of the time people award rep for things like "Best Free Games List Ever!" or because the OP hates on Apple etc... as opposed to rewarding someone for a helpful post.

Just to quell things, comments have been heard. Like I said, we won't be implementing a rep system at this time or in the foreseeable future, but we will be resurrecting/making use of the level system eventually which will grant contributers access to some fun stuff.

WooooHoooo! Can we get any hints FiXT? I'll be annoying without hints... and I'll start making hypothetical idea threads to guess, lol.

Well I originally think a rep system like the ones at OCN would encourage people to post and start knowledge threads and share information with there findings and such. But with the the results we all can see that HCF folks think and post a lot more negative than positive.

As we all know the most view section is the BST section then its the OT. Every where else lacks forum involvement and information sharing. Trying to find some decent info or a product discussion is almost impossible to be found at HCF maybe except for the ones been reviewed by the staffs. Two years ago it was the same and now its still the same.

And if HCF is as MATURE as MOST of you stated then you know a rep system would help since we're all MATURE people and not having worry about an abuse, right?

I just find it amusing at other sites with people having there first few post with a really helpful thread just to get some recognition, HCF on the other hand, its mostly trolls.

Well its just me again ranting away.

I heard that if you get over level 20 they give you a free GTX 480.
