Well ultimately, the majority vote should prevail, which would give a far more objective picture. And whats wrong with competition if it boosts quality?

Still haven't heard the mods/admins on their stance about this.

Competition does not necessarily boost quality. In this instance, I'd venture to guess that it would decrease quality if people are aiming for reputation points. Gaizka has amazing posts that take a lot of time an effort to write. I'd be bullshit if those have the same value as some "zinger" reply that is picking on an unpopular member. And say two members get into an argument, you better believe that people are petty enough to go and downvote every other comment the other person has made.

The "majority should prevail" mentality is very dangerous. Often times, the popular answer isn't the right answer.

I have to side with SouthClaw on this. It'll be to much of a popularity competition...

What's wrong with the way things are now?

Not tryin to suck your dick or anything but there's a lot of wisdom and maturity in your posts (no homo). There are very popular schools of thought that are absolutely idiotic and do nothing but engender mob mentality against those who seem to disagree. Excellent post claw you're becoming one of my favourite posters....but get back the Ryu avatar though.

The whole voting thing is silly, all the groups that are together/friends will just vote each others posts up giving a skew picture of everything. Not to mention the competition it would create, which has been pointed out by other members. Its working the way it is, the good posters stay and the bad posters get bans.

Ew I gotta agree. Rep points HERE would be worthless


If you want to increase quality of posting you need SERIOUS MODERATION. I'm on other forums/blogs/sites where they have it. It's only way to insure quality. I mean I got banned from one for using the world 'fuck' and having a grammatical error. Seen other people banned for having stupid opinions "OMGZ he SUCKS!" (without any point behind it).

Rec points would accomplish nothing. Especially here when half the people don't read comments, just say +21894389 if it's a person they like.

I AM BACK.

Now to sum up some points i have wanted to say recently while reading the forum by the magic of deleting temporary internet files and cookies, which logs you out. Clever me.

@Wet Ones.

Flamini has done well. I was never a hater, i was just simply being objective. Flamini didn't play well uptil recently and a few times before this, and by a few i mean 2; One with Leo mid-last-year and another when playing RB with Carlo. I'm not a hater, i was just not blindly kissing his ass. Plus. Saying that "Oh Flamini can get it back. PLAY HIM ALLEGRI" and then discrediting everyone who says Dinho should be given a fair chance is the epitome of being hypocritical.

@Paladin.

You are the biggest waste of space i've ever seen on the forum: Incomprehensible posts; Biased posting; Wishing for Elmander to join simply for you both being Swedish. It's hilariously bad. You're not a bad person, probably. Yet you waste so much space and time when i could be reading something good. It's just "Urrghh Slowdorf" and "Elmander Swedish golden ball no?"

@Drucurl.

You can't really say that people shouldn't share things on a public forum when you openly asked people whether you should go to a brothel and that you use a penis extender.

@Capitao.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

@Necromancer.

I am gay but you'll never know me and so it doesn't matter to you. It's not a problem with you doubting me. I just don't see the problem with discussing things in my life. I share things with others on here. Other people don't.

@Wild.

I did not mock casualties of war. I referenced Bombs, these being Missiles. Some people seem to think i meant Suicide bombs. I did not. I simply referenced Missiles. Don't act like you've been wronged. Everyone's construing it wrongly. I overreacted but you're not exactly free of blame. You have no idea what i go through and to think that you do is just ridiculous. We were having a debate about Ibra's fighting style and Onyewu's and you just insulted me about something which is obviously a sore subject. Saying that it shouldn't insult me is just stupid as different things insult different people.

Plus, the fact that you openly started being derogatory towards Jews shows just how ******ed you are. You call me an 'Asian Hater' and then you go and insult Jewish people. I argue with Ashish due to him hating England - Fair enough. I remember calling Ashish an Illiterate Indian and everyone was up in arms due to me using Indian as a derogatory term. Now he does the same with Jews and yet nothing is said; Is it because he "Made this forum, son"?

Not saying that things are biased around here. But just that nothing was raised against him; when i'm crucified at every turn when i even utter a word which can be construed as racism or whatever crap you pull.


Now Forza Milan and hopefully we'll win against Auxerre tonight. Plus Rep points or whatever will just be stupid. Not meaning to be offensive but we all know Congo will get 546958674536 for simply saying Borri has swag.

It would eliminate people actually posting +21894389 instead they just rate the comment and let the discussion continue.

And if congo gets +823497523 for saying Borri has swag, is that a bad thing? if people like it, whats wrong with it? Whatever it was just a suggestion to maybe stir something interesting, but if everything is perfect fine. As I said to southclaw in pm, personally I'd like to have that option when I see a gaizka post for example.

I suppose it's what you hope to gain out of it. I have no real problem with a rec system.

I just don't think it'll make any difference on quality of posts. Only moderation can really do that. Mainly by being stickers to staying on topic and grammar/language etc. Personally I'd be fine with that happening, but I know it won't.

OR it would just turn into another way for drucurl and Ashish to give each other troll high fives. Probably not a bad idea actually.
