I think it's a joke. I vote to get rid of it.

Sean,

What is the point system supposed to do? Is it working? It seems to be creating controversy and conflict more than anything else. It also creates animosity, resentment and possibly hatred. If you change it so it would leave the persons name next to the comment it would only create more of this. There would be lots of retaliation and unneeded posts (questioning the negative points) in threads... and probably PMs too.


So I ask... Why would you want this? Is it a positive thing for your site? Do we really need it?

Capture a name or get rid of it.

Have to give props to Up North, at least he had the balls to sign his ding.


Wonder how many more dings I will get for this one.

BobcatZT, to this day you're the only one I've ever dinged. Handed out a few positive points but only the one ding. Anyway, nice signature line...gotta like that.

I read through every single post. Great reading - everyone was so serious and not a hint of sarcasm

But like I said, this was going to be the last discussion. There were 92 total replies since I started this thread. I was hoping more people would give their input. However, for the most part it was the same people carrying on a discussion. I kept a count and this is what I got.... 18 people clearly made it obvious they want the point system removed and 8 said it should stay.

Yes, 92 replies and only 26 actual votes. Obviously there was some suggestion as to what could be done to possibly improve the system but most members of the site did not even take the time to give their input (nothing wrong with that)....could mean they do not care if it is in place or could mean they think it is so ridiculous they won't even wste time commenting - not my place to judge.

So......

I am going to get rid of this point system. I am going to email Pierre right now and instruct him to remove it. I do not know exactly when he will be able to remove this feature, but as soon as it is gone I'm sure everyone will know.
