On the forums I go to, I always notice that there is much less drama (I.E. bitching about bronies/furries/gay rights/4chan/9gag/etc) when there is an option to give said person an increase or decrease in karma. Besides, we already have it for the review system on Newgrounds, and the quality of flash and audio reviews have only continued to increase.

No we don't. That'll only encourage circle jerks which already give mods a tough enough time of stopping. OP even if we did have one you wouldn't have a single point since your posts are always retarded and pointless.

That just makes people less likely to share their opinions, knowing that they'll get downvoted (I mean, come on, karma?) if they don't share the hivemind's opinions.

Don't worry about having a serious discussion about this, we already have many times, it's just that the OP is autistic and lacks the intelligence to use a search bar.

Please enlighten me on how not using the search bar makes me autistic. I'm sure more than half of NG would fall under your definition of autistic just by saying I can't use a search bar.

When I make a thread, I never even consider looking for a thread of similar repute via the search bar

Even if you don't use the search bar you probably know not to make a thread like this, I mean it's just common sense. The OP takes the authoritary "We need" instead of "I think we need' because they bear the impression the world revolves around them and when they like something everyone else does too. I'd like to remind the OP that the human race doesn't share some kind of hive mind with him.

I'm sorry I can't fit "I think we need a reputation system" into the topic subject, because it takes too many characters to put it in.

Uh, no. I've had forums with a karma system, and it's just really fucking bad.

People aren't going to hate bronies less if we have a fucking karma system. Sorry.

I miss being able to ban people for these posts.

There was one thread in April and the OP was about personal perception of reputation on NG. The next most recent thread was in 2009.

In case anyone thinks I AGREE with the esteemed OP: Karma/Reputation systems are really counterproductive to open dialogue, fwiw.

Look at Reddit.

don't actually look at reddit, it is a cesspit of humanity and despair.

Why are you acting like you've got a stick up your ass? Calling someone autistic because you don't agree with the way someone's going about things is pretty lame and umadbro. So far OP hasn't done anything worse than suggesting an idea, even if it's probably not a good one.

As for the topic, I don't think it's good to quantify the quality of someone's character. If they're a good poster, their reputation on the BBS will speak for itself. If they're shitty posters, they will become recognized as just that in due time.


Everywhere I go, there's a sergeant there.

it does prevent drama temporarily... until people start to see that karma doesn't do crap and go back to their old ways.

I remember that a site I used to go too, G-Fed, had a long time karma system that was successful at first, but then it fell apart. Just to give you an idea, the owner of the site eventually completly closed the fourms due to all attempts to stop trooling and flamming failed.

They called OP autistic because OP was "too stupid" to use the search bar.

Autism is a spectrum disorder and while many maladjusted neckbearded manchildren like to use Aspergers as an excuse for their ghastly social skills, it is by no means a disorder that equates to being "stupid." Being a "sperglord" is being overly analytical and pedantic. Kind of the ...opposite of stupid.

For instance, ulillillia is not stupid. He is, however, autistic.

People's posts cement their reputation with me. It was harder on NG when you could change your username at will and keep under the radar (I kept track of unrepentantly bad users by userid numbers.) Now it's easier to remember usernames.
