    Ok, already I have received a negative point for this comment...come on give me a break. Already I am against the reputation thingy. I feel that if you are going to give a negative mark, then leave a comment why.


    I hate to say this Jodi and Matt, but this is going to drive people away from the site. Right now I have lost a lot of interest in the site because of the charges in regards to the format and the reputation points.

    Does anybody else feel the same way?

    I respect your opinion a lot, you are a welcome addition to the forum.
    Your concerns are my concerns believe it or not.
    I knew we would be getting this feature before the upgrade took place. I addressed my comments and thoughts to Sean about this asking him to actually not include the reputation feature here at Lawnsite. He is very easy to talk to, he listens, and agreed that if used improperly, the rating system would not work well. He said though that we were to give it a try here, so as with anything, I like to give things a fair chance. It hasn't even been a week yet. There have been 96 ratings, of those 18 have been negative. This is being monitored closely.
    Sean will listen to everyone, he is here to make Lawnsite an enjoyable experience for everyone. This is just another feature that is being tested out.

    I appreciate your comment and I respect it. I love the site and I love that a great bunch of people (you and Matt) run it. I just don't want it to become a negative area with a lot of hurt feelings. Everybody should be able to make a comment without worrying that someone will give them a positive or negative feedback on it. I do appreciate though that you two talked about it before, and if needed will remove it.
    Like I said before, I love the site, I just don't want it to go in the wrong direction

    I'm inclined to agree somewhat.

    that's not right at all. i admit its early and we should atleast try it out, but that's wrong that you get a negative for having an opinion, especially with a person who has obviously participated alot on this site.

    It says you are on a distinguished road, so someone must be giving you positives. I've got none either way. I guess my posts are not being read.
    Tell ya what, I'll give you a point, I'd better hurry, and do it while I still can.
    I originally thought it was a little bit of a foolish idea, but now that I've seen the "title list" I think it's beyond that. Way beyond.
