Good Post Ratio. Yay or nay? 2013-02-06 17:15:02 Reply

I don't know..this might be a shitty idea, but what if we had a number next to our usernames that told us what percent of our posts were well received. It could be something like a mix between Facebook and Reddit; there will be an up and down thumbs or arrow or something and you can vote on any post that is made in the forums.
If your average goes below lets say 20% then you are banned for a week.
this would help prevent spammers and be a really good system to also show off the best posters.
TO PREVENT just voting down every post, only people with averages of OVER 70% could vote. (we will choose a few to start)

As for "Gpr" thats the first acronym i could think of. Good Post Ratio.
Any other ideas/thoughts?

Terrible idea. Then everyone who hates one another could vote down and let's say if they don't agree with the post then the percentage lowers.

It's an interesting idea, but I don't think it would work.

Yeah, that's the problem. If the bans weren't automatic, and the people who downvote could get banned for downvoting posts that weren't completely useless, then it might work... but nah, too much work. It would probably decrease the activity amount at the forums too..

Shit post by someone you like - vote up

Interesting post by someone you dislike - vote down

Would never work. No one here would be honest. We're humans after all.

thank god this horrible idea will never be implemented into NG. The idea of voting on every individual post on a forum isn't anything new, but you're taking it to a nazi level.

Not to mention the freedom of alt accounts, you could have one person with an army of forum post voters who instantly nuke someone's post and they get insta-banned.

Yeah, I don't think so... Just about anything you did in the politics forum would get you automatically banned.
