No. People will just abuse it and spam negative things and that will give a bad impression about you. I got spammed like that on another website.

With all the drama, butthurtbronies, and wannabe trolls on this site, the reputation system would be a retarded idea.

There's so many cliques on here and unbeknownst drama that people would purposely down vote someone's "karma" or do it just because they don't like them.

Bronies being given bad karma for being bronies. Wannabe trolls would have their alts or fellow trolls down vote others or up vote each other.

It's an interesting idea and I honestly do like it. But looking at the reality aspect of it, it wouldn't really work.

This is a horrible idea. We will all be deep negative in karma. You fuck.

Interesting idea, disastrous consequences. This is why we can't have nice things.

I think karma systems are retarded. Especially since they can be abused the fuck out of.

This is the most obvious answer, the BBS would seriously downvote someone, then wait until they could again, and then downvote them some more. It would be a very unreliable system.

Forums without "karma" and "reputation" are more free. You act like yourself and don't try to be the nicest guy by posting nice posts to get nice reputation.

Just learn how each of the users act through time. The userbase for the forums isn't so large that you can't just get to know the different users. A reputation system would only cater to circle-jerks and haters.

This, besides it's bad enough we have a fan system, and if we did have a karma feature, we'd all be in the negatives anyways.

I agree with the OP and would like to see such a feature implemented in the NGBBS.

This sounds like a thing that if implemented that only a crew would give a shit to utilize because it would serve as a new "fuck me and fuck me hard" red light for said crew to actively exploit in an attempt to further underhandedly browbeat the community into conforming to said crew's standards.

This kind of thing usually only ever works when the community is new and the feature was present since the beginning, introducing it into an established community would cause it to serve as a "game changer" as people would attempt to weaponize it against each other.

Wouldn't mind this as a Greasemonkey (only) script for shits and giggles. People who have it can see it and it's not really a core to the site.

A reputation system and/or karma is a bad idea. It would add no value to NewGrounds.

Calm down. We all want him gone.

One can only hope so much...

Let's all sit down and pray for the annoying one to leave.

I can only imagine overrated trolls being glorified like a God and poor newcomers to the site being poorly down voted.

I'd end up in negative karma just from all the fucks on this site who seem to equate unpopular/different opinion with trolling
