Hi,

Correct, thanks for pointing it out. Due to the length of this thread I'm loosing track now and then.

Kind regards,

Eric

I wouldn't have bothered to rep either one. But if I had, I would have voted the same as you. The first is a guy complaining and not entirely getting it, but he seemed to be reasonable about it. I've seen people who needed a cluebat far worse, so I don't have a problem with it. It was a neutral/negative post. The second is a guy posting a reasonable question but not an amazing one - I've only seen a handful of "help me" posts where I thought, "Wow, what a perfect question". So that's neutral/positive to me. Plus it was in the wrong forum. I'd be more likely to mod up his reply where he was vocally appreciative. That's good form in my book.

Maybe this should be a new thread - like slashdot, we can meta-moderate people's reps in a dedicated thread.

If no one is against this, it's possible I'll make a one time reputation addition based on the thanks system statistics.

--jeremy
No problem for what concerns me to add this one time 'boost'

Kind regards,

Eric

That should be fine. But what thanks systems will be used in this context? The thanks that member collected with the old thanks system?

Hi,

I just reread those threads and in my opinion you were correct on both accounts. Regardless of multiple posts by different users the OP in the first thread continued on the same 'malicious' track so 'down rep' is justified. But he was taken 'down' three times and that confirms my point in previous posts that this system can be used to penalize someone, which is not its main goal. It's OK to downrep somebody like that but now he's a newbie with his rep set to -3 for a 'non-technical' reason which seems incorrect to me.

The second thread I agree completely with you, rep given in that thread motivates the OP.

Kind regards,

Eric

Was he really taken down 3 times or when a member of a much higher post count voted him down, 2 points got subtracted ?

The OP can only confirm maybe !

and thanks for your feedback

How do you feel he was reasonable ? He was clearly saying (multiple times) that he doesn't want to read the Keywords on Google ! That shows he doesn't even want to try to help himself !
Now, that's highly pathetic !

Actually IMHO that second guy (with the first post on the forum) was far better than most of the newbies I have dealt with here in every respect. And giving a COOKIE for a good question is a way of my telling him, that you can do even better !
I really cannot expect a newbie to ask a **brilliant** question on the very first go !

and thanks for the feedback to you too !

Hi Anisha,

You're right, should have said: taken down 3 points. I don't know if that was because of one down vote by one user or three votes. Maybe either the OP or Jeremy might shed some light.

Kind regards,

Eric

If the OP was really taken "down" 3 times perhaps a mechanism can be added as follows :

If an OP has been marked down already for a post 2 times, then some one else cannot mark him down for the same post a 3rd time !

I can't even find rep in the user cp. I went through every page.
Rep is not something terribly important to me. I have been helped tremendously on this forum, and I like to think I have given a little something back at times.

I know this thread is getting too long and is beginning to become incoherent. I'm content to go with the flow and live with whatever you guys decide. I'm neutral.

Perhaps you are still at the seed value. I have just clicked a yes on your above post "for a trial". Now check your User CP !

Neither can I. Is is because I have disabled it?

I think so because I can see all of the reps given to me.

Kind regards,

Hi,

@mlangdn and linuxlover.chaitanya:

Are you talking about Latest Reputation Received that is (should be) on your LQ UserCP page?

I have opted out of the rep system, but the info about who gave me rep is visible on that page (only place up till now where I can find any info, all other places are "hidden" due to me opting out).

hi

I would like to add minor point

a newbie is likely to use the reputation number as a guide.....meaning they believe person X over person Y due the higher number.

But this wrong.....SOME times

The reply entity may have skills in sound or wireless but no skills in raid or security.

IMHO, the reputation system is not perfect and never will.

The best person to judge a reply is the original poster and maybe the moderator?

Of course, the first reply may be correct but poorly phrased.

-----the first reply may be correct but others reply confusing the issue?

2) So will reputation include some metric of grammer....I hope not as mine tends to be shite.

BTW BrianL and I are not lovers ...heh heh

regards
