Hi, I want to give everyone in here a thumbs down. However, I don't see that option. Please advise, thanks!

If so, it's on your profile page.

This is stupid, has this game become so boring that we need to make a game out of the forum?

It would appear so. I can only stress that automated events be put into priority.

However, I still can't see the plus or minus sign to give people negative karma.

Edit, I usually don't do this, but I read the other post and found out that I have negative karma, which in turn, doesn't give me the option to rate.

I think this should be morphed into something like seller reputation, kinda like e-bay ans such.

It would be nice to enable it only for certain forums, such as help, trade, suggestions. Having in a forum like trash talk doesn't make a lot of sense.

AND.. if you are going to do this stupid crap, at least make it uo terms, not a number. the unsavory usualsuspect is much better than Karma: -1

That's a nice suggestion.

I don't think you can, or at least I haven't been able to yet.

Edit: Is there a floor or ceiling on how low or high karma can go?

No, but I do plan to try to set up ranks. There is an option to ban players who reach a certain level of karma; but we'll have to see how the system plays out.

To give some background on why we implemented this system: It's been desired by traders for some time, but there has never been a stable reputation system for phpBB; I've been looking for one for years. This one finally seems to fit the bill in terms of being production ready.

There's also an excessive amount of trolling in these forums, and the level at which staff will take action is pretty well known and skirted. I feel that a peer review system will help with this, and reduce some of the frustration that board admins and moderators feel about some of the postings in these forums.

It may work, it may not; but we're going to try it regardless. I do expect that it'll take a couple months to make any determination at all on whether this was a good idea.

We can continue to take good ideas on modifications to the system, but spitting on it is not going to be helpful at this time.

I think this is a great idea. Also implementing the karma titles from UO would be awesome.

Already Fede (sir trammelite) has -15 karma, I love it.

It's fun, and adds a lil something extra to the forums. Thank you Derrick.

Obviously there are problems with that.

Edit: However, if a moderator gathers up enough negative karma, he is also subject for ban?

As always, thanks!
