    I could really care less about the points. I wouldn't care if someone gave me a ding. This site is about getting others opinions and you're not always going to like what other people have to say. If you don't like what I have to say then ignore it. I just call it how I see it and could care less if anyone else likes it or dislikes it. I'll probably get dinged for this post but I don't care. It's a web site not the Bible. A point or a ding will not change my life.

    Do away with the points rating. Or every time you get a bad rating from someone for nothing give Sean one.

    Get rid of the point system. It is ridiculous. Just reading this thread (and others) about points shows the system should be gotten rid of.

    But... Before it is removed, is there a list of the "descriptions"? I have to admit I've had fun checking the green boxes to see what different descriptions might come up, and I haven't figured out what in the heck they mean. Someone earlier mentioned "red box". Does someone have a red box? What's the description? ;)

    Ditch it. Since we've had it, it's led to finger pointing, people getting ticked, and IMO just put people on edge. Don't see anything good that come out of it yet. I've received both positive & negative points, but who really cares? I don't know any more or less because of it.

    Like Jodi said, the system doesn't get used properly and probably never will. So IMO I'd ditch it and if someone wants to issue a positive or negative point that bad then they can simply just make a post instead. We're in the lawn business elementary school.

    If you decide to keep it, then capture the name of the person leaving the mark.

    don't drop it yet, i haven't gotten to ding anyone yet... where's garden panzy?

    seriously, it's not that bad. just get the name attached. people have given me compliments and i have no idea who they are.... it works both ways. you want to see who's dinging you, as well the guys who lead you to the distinguished road.

    Oh crap, I got a ding for this post. I say do away with it now, man I can't believe I got a ding. I'm telling my Mommy!!!!

    The person that dinged me is a coward! his comment was "sorry I forgot my name"

    Just kidding, I like the little red squares, they look pretty with all my green ones :)

    Whats going to happen when sponsors get dingers, how will this point system look to them. I don't think anything good will every come from this point system.

    And what will happen when members that are new to the site but not to the business get a few dings on their first few posts? Think they will want to continue to visit this site? We could lose some valuable input just because a few like this popularity contest.

    But their information won't have any value anyway, because they won't have the proper reputation status to back their views. :rolleyes:

    If they aren't at least a shining light I ain't reading them, I don't even have enough reputation to read my own posts :cool2:
