    I favor a system where people are held accountable for their votes. I do think it would cut down on the excessive neg-repping.

    I have changed the type of reputation system to a "like" system. You will only be able to like content, after liking it your name is publicly visible.   This is a test period to see how people like it, hopefully it will now stop people -repping those becuase  they dont like them, since they cant.   We may also switch back to a +/- reputation system with visible voters, so that reputation spammers can be publicly seen, and dealt with.

    Personally I'm in favor of both positive and negative rep, as I feel having both more honestly represents the sentiments of the community. Negative reputation conveys as strong a message about a person's online interpersonal communication skills as positive rep does. I'm personally fascinated by the truths in each "Let's see how many neg reps xyz gets for asking literally the same question I did", but this isn't the main point here.   I much prefer being able to see the number of likes/upvotes on a given post, which we can't do currently. Much as I dislike its like-only system, Facebook at least allows this, albeit at the cost of anyonymity, which I consider extremely important: like polls, the +/- reps allow people to more openly express their opinions of a given post or topic without fear of consequence.   To take a recently reread quote not very far out of context, [10/01/13 00:36] Muratus del Mur: we are now a handfull of people that just have one or the other friend and lots of grudges and complains, that will lead nowhere A common sentiment seems to be that neg rep only increases divisiveness. But isn't it really more a symptom of the current fractured, fractious state of the realm? ------ EDIT: After some conversations and reconsiderations, I would support having the old +/- rep system reinstated along with the ability to see who has voted how on a given post. This change would hold people accountable for their votes while still retaining our ability to briefly express dissent.   (DD, there are reasons people spam you and not everyone else. If it was one person continually bringing you down then a moderator would have taken care of it long ago, but you, Fang, and Seigheart seem to have personal hate squads. The community should by now be fairly familiar with the reasons for this.)   There's a good chance that enabling voter viewing will cause more short-term conflicts as people grumble about who upvoted whom wherever, but I believe that overall, knowing that we could be called upon to justify our actions will lead people to be more considerate in their voting.

    The NTC is officially under way. The first big trip to Golemus Golemicarum is planned for sometime next month. Falronn, Syrian, and I, will be accompanying all the Little Ones (And not so Little Ones that decide to join us to help lower viscosity) on this Adventure. We will not only show the New Ones new scenes, we will also teach of the ways of GG, it's history, it's Lore, and it's ways. Everyone and anyone is more than welcome to join us, and if you plan to be a part of this Adventure, I suggest you sign your name below. Help us breed the next generation of Young Blood. Help us teach the ways of Old. Help us make a Generation we can be proud of, and the rewards will show themselves in time, wisdom, love, and a connection, that can't be established in any other way. ~ Fang Lycanus Archbane Edit: Syrian, make sure to save up at least 20 Pickles so we can get the Kids out of GG. if you can not due to the cap, I will talk to the Council about having the Pickles rot every week.

    I'm for bringing back neg reps and making them (as well as pos reps) transparent.   There are times when I strongly disagree with a post but I won't reply because that'd mean repeating other people who replied before me, or because I'd need to use words that are considered by many offensive and I'd rather remain silent than offend people. That's when I find (visible) neg repping useful.   As for positive reps I'm also pro making it transparent. I don't do "ass kissing" and I don't really care if people see it that way. I guess people who accuse of ass kissing are the ones who'd know what it is in the first place :P

    Hmm..you have a point there Princ. I concentrated on neg  votes and forgot all about positive ones.   Also, there is an issue here which back then Chewett could not counter and that might have a solution through those "Like" buttons: private forums. In those forums, only "friends"* have access and they massively abused the system by pos repping each other (*cough* yes, Loreroot, you are my main target in here :D) so they show up as Knights/Jedies (no idea what's the plural) through fake inflated rep.   @Ivorak: you don't post too much either and you're not one of the players to cause controversies. You usually take the side of the majority. So yeah, it's natural that you don't get too many negs.

    As someone who was rarely given negative reputation (it's kind of hard to check now, but I don't think I had any posts below -1) I'm still really in favor of the new setup.  By liking something with your name attached, you can show your support for an idea without cluttering the forum.  I also support the removal of negative reputation because having it discourages people to speak up on controversial topics (these things need to be discussed, but not shouted).  Another reason I think a lot of negative rep is given is poorly phrased posts (sometimes I'll see posts I think are agreeing with each other, one downvoted the other upvoted, and then a huge argument follows).  Miscommunication happens to all of us ocassionally and it's better resolved with clarifications then downvoting that immediately puts others on the defensive.  That's just one reason though.   My main concern is that we practice cutting people and their ideas down too much.  Yes, some ideas suck, but if we want to make MagicDuel a better place we get there by making it better, not just by tearing down what is bad.  Please, if you don't like an idea, voice some concerns constructively, then propose a better one and help make it reality.

    DD you are soooo wrong.   I used to have a lot of positive rep. I went to major negative and now I'm positive again. And how are you so sure about this: Have you seen the votes? Do you have any proof to sustain your affirmation?   I want the +/- back as well. It's the first feeback a player receives to his ideas.   Also, as an example: fenrir. He has the worst reputation even. BUT he has no neg repps to his "Leashes" topic opened few days ago. Same with fang (he even has some positives).   So no, it's not a conspiracy. Forgot: if the votes will not be anonymous  we will definitely have less neg reps but we'll also have not so accurate results (because some will refrain from clicking the buttons - we have too many cowards in this game who prefer to do/say things behind someone's back rather than confront him/her). So I haven't made up my mind about being able to see who voted.

    "People never change their opinion on someone. First expression is always last expression in this realm."   Not true.     So whether or not negative votes remain, which I'm a bit for but rather don't mind either way, I think we should be able to tell how many up-votes a particular post has received. Also, I don't think being able to see who has voted on what is a bad idea.

    So you agree that less than half of your neg rep is justified?   if people change their communicating ways, others will start positive rep-ing them. So in the end, their rep will improve.   if it is the case, then there will be others who positive rep the post, to conter-balance. Eveybody should be able to express the opinion, even though it is unjustified or personal, but in the end, the voice of community is the sum of every and each person's voice. So i dont think it matters that only 1 or 2 people hate neg rep you. If the reason is unjust, people will stand up for you.   If it is the case, then why should vote remains anonymous? They are made this way for the same reason

    I do not agree, Zyrxae. More than half of my neg-rep is due to spam. Thus it may make people envision someone as a bad communicator, even though s/he isn't. Plus, people can change their communicating ways for the better, but the neg rep still remains on your profile.   Also, many people give neg rep just due to personal dislike; it's not restricted to the contents of the post.   +/- rep system should only return once everyone can see who's doing it, so that those who spam can be caught.

    And +repping people because you like them is better? I suspect it doesn't happen as often, but still. I personally dislike all of the places where you can't dislike things. I'd vote for the +/- system with reputation viewing enabled.
