Ban the negative reps
 
Ok i think we need to ban the negative rep and save those warnings etc. for the mods,


I recently got a negative rep saying "you suck my **** you *****" and he didn't even leave hes name, but i looked through the thread and i made about 3 posts saying nothing bad to anything it was on topic although i what i said turned out not to be true but it wasn't anything bad.

I don't see the point of negative reps...people just give them out because they don't agree with someone, i say ban them because if someone does something bad enough to deserve one wouldn't they be able to get a suspension anyway?

If you banned negi, you'd have to ban posi too. It doesn't have any effect on your account does it? I don't get why people are so bothered when they get neg rep.

People abuse the negative rep though...people don't give people positive reps because they don't like someone.

If someone posts something good ill rep them but i've never given out a negative rep why? because its pointless...if someone does something bad enough that they deserve them they should get suspended and whats the other reason people get them? there isn't one people just give them out because they don't agree with someone.

then what's the point of having rep at all?

what should happen is usernames should be tagged on both pos and neg rep...but taking out the neg rep deems the whole system pretty useless.

some people deserve neg rep. go to other forums and people actually flaunt it.

mmabot, for example, had a red box i believe and definitly deserved it.

plus, someone who deals out negative rep is likely someone who gets neg rep himself or doesnt have a lot of pos rep.

and, when someone with far less rep than you, negative reps you, it has little to no effect. thats how the system works.

It doesnt matter, just talk to trey b like i did and he banned the guy who neg repped me. But it has to be an offensive rep, like youres.

I posted this in a can fedor be beat thread

it will happen, and yes get him in a ring with out ropes. he is a good fighter but he definately can be beat

this in a why cro cop got beat thread

He just got beat get over it, he got fair and square and it wasn't because he was less skilled or because he took his opponite lightly, or the ufc lightly he just got beat live with it. why did he lose because the other guy beat him period.

this one in a what should the ufc change immediately

they already do give bonuses for ko's and submissions

they need more good fighters in their hw division, this division has always bored me when i watch the ufc(randy not included in previous statment but guess who is ill give you a guess his shorts stink real bad!)

no more tito vs dana like shows where there is no fight if you put the ufc name on it I want to see a fight

get better talent for the TUF the fights on this years seasons are boring

besides that I kinda like the ufc the way it is


I got neggitive repped on all of these. I try hard to give out positive post and when people ask for my oppinion i give it, it makes me not want to post for you can get neg repped for anything

ive gotten countless negetive reps just because soemone felt like it for no reason or disagreed with my opinion on who would win a fight.

i think neg reps are stupid which is why ive probly only given out two of them int he whole time ive been here.

I got 2 neg reps.....1 for defending Matt Hughes because he believes in GOD. Which in my opinion whether you have faith in GOD or not shouldn't open the door for attacks. I was called a twit because I believe in GOD. I can live with it....I've been called worse.

The other one was for a post I did today agreeing with another poster about the Wang fight on TUF5......didn't say nothing just agreed.

They don't leave their name so you can't track em. It wouldn't be so bad if they had to leave a name and a reason but, to just -rep someone for disagreeing with an opinion if it's light, shouldn't bring a -rep. It's all hogwash. I'll +rep if I like the post or whatever but I see no point in it all if someone just doesn't like you.

I strongly disagree...neg reps are not necessary..they are just venues for cowards who hide in anonymity. I've been called names from.."queer",mom-related stuff, to "suck my ****" by these invisible fairies ...very random and irrelevant, so it's clear that the neg rep is BS!
If someone thinks a post deserves a negative review, then why not have the spine to say it out in the open (in the thread itself) where he/she'll be held accountable? I've been tempted to dish out the neg rep as well like when Emperor had that swastika sig. Instead, it was called-out in the open. Guess what? Problem solved; issue clarified.

The pos reps are enough to guage a member's usefullness..if he/she's useless then it'll be reflected.

But if you really want -/+ rep system, why not have full transparency?..including all comments. Let's weed out the keyboard warriors and stop sponsoring cheapshots!

Theres no way for a mod or admin to tell who left a rep unless they leave their name.
