Ah man, I missed all the action. It all seems rather "point"less to me.

Obviously there was a bug in the code.

I can't believe people actually whined enough to shut it down. This feature is VERY common on most internet forums. Hard to believe a bunch of adults care so much about whether people they don't know "approve" or "don't approve" of their comments

Yeah, we've got "karma" on FCB, and most members have fun with it. Some go out of their way to get a low score, some like it higher. I'm just happy to keep my 69.

Actually, it was never supposed to be turned on in the first place. The feature was turned on when IB migrated the software, and it was decided that it really is/was a no vlaue feature, so it was almost immediately turned off.

If I told everybody that IB is looking into how it got turned back on because the mods certainly did not ask for it, and the IB tech reps for the site did not approve it - nobody will believe me anyway.

We will just let the conspiracy theories continue

Is that why you ran away with your tail tucked between you legs? Last time I looked, I think you were at -100.

Hey, why not put it to a vote by posting a poll?

That's the way we did it.

Well Jack... it's not a flower... the icon is the "scale of justice" and it's not meant to be a "tattle on your neighbors" thing. The way it's setup it prevents people from repetitively picking on the same person over and over.... so in other words... you could only give Menzies a -Rep and not again until you spread more Rep around.

On most of the other forums I use this system is in place and it's never used by MODS to monitor people... it's just kinda like a visual as to your standing in the community. Whether you are a douchebag who most don't like.... or a person with good advice who most people find friendly and helpful.

Anyhow... the REASON I liked the system had NOTHING to do with the Points rewarded or taken away.... I mostly liked the QUICK COMMENT. Sometimes I don't really want to make a post on a thread, but I might want to tell a poster that I enjoyed or hated what they had to say. The quick comments provided with the rep system allowed this without having to go and send and IM... which seems more lengthy "hey this is so and so... I liked what you said on thread XYZ" yadda yadda yadda (and can also make the receiver feel like they have to respond to the IM). The quick comment is simpler "Liked your post ~GCG" Done! Plus it gave the person a direct link to the post you were referencing with your comment and there is no need for the receiver to reply back. Anyway... that's why I like it.

Doesn't matter ..... people complained... it's gone... no biggie.
