Replace post counts with this

by ABJ » Post

Now, as we all know, post counts haven't helped, thanks to me. I'm going to solve the problem I created. My suggestion is this.
1-Post count is hidden.
2-Members are ranked by two values - general approval and experience.
3-These are decided by other users.
4-Users with higher ranks have more influence in the vote. Eg:- a member who has more approval points can add and take away more of a users approval points in one vote than one with less.
5-No more shitposting
6-ABJ is not spammer
7-Paramat is less pissed off.

Because post counts are counterproductive and we need a way to see who's better.

maybe we are trying to do too much to save celeron's bytes. I just mean, getting 5000 posts is just an indicator that i talk too much :D

But I care! When people like paramat get angry about an MT affair, it means a lot to me!

There's no reason to hide post counts.
1. People with high post counts are not always better, or more knowledgeable than others with just a few posts.
2. People that are obsessed with having more posts than the other guy need to find something constructive to do :)
3. It's true some people just have the gift of gab. Nothing you can really do about that.

That is exactly why we should hide post counts and switch to a more member opinion-driven system.

I'm wary of such a rating system since it might create karma circlejerks.

DAE?

Banning shitposters is easier than dealing with a hard problem that might break the forums...

Also other similar problems such as karma bombing.

I'm sick of having my post count used AGAINST me. I mean, are you seriously meaning to tell me that you implemented a system that only shows how BAD a user is, with no chance to see their good side?

I hope they won't, we will have a ***** reputation. I prefer a system which only shows the good.
