Default Reputation Tag

I am a little curious here. I had not even realized there were these reputation tags assigned to each member. It seems I have this label , that carries the description "BearLeeAlive has a little shameless behaviour in the past".

I am a wee bit curious as to what this is about, and why I seem to be 1 of the 3 out of 41,444 that gets this negative label. Is this because I stood up for a decision I made on a purchase of a tool against some long time members, despite the fact I was only answering a question by the person who started the thread. And if so, am I correct to assume this is considered a bad thing.

Just feeling a wee bit confused and insulted here.

Jim,

Don't feel insulted. Since no one uses the reputation system, one persons poor mark stands out. (I don't think that negative remarks should be allowed without at least giving the poster a chance to answer them-- common courtesy IMHO)

Your opinions and comments are appreciated here!

Doug, I was trying to not read too much into it, or take it too personal, though felt impelled to question it.

I do see now that it got changed to . Now I feel silly.

I was just in my profile and saw that I had two reputations recieved, a green one in this thread with no comment (thanks), and a red on in the track saw thread with the comment "he seems to misrepresent other people's views.". I don't understand this comment, I only represent my own views, I would never try to represent the views of another person. What really gets me is that it does not say who left it, it is totally anonymous, so it seems anyone can add derogatory comments to another's profile. I have no clue how to do this, but really, what is the purpose of this.

Unless there is a popularity contest going one I think this option should not be shown in the first place. I don't see it on any of the multitudes of other forums i take part in.

Some forums don't even show post count either, as it really has no bearing on the experience that person has, nor the quality of the posts they make.

This is an option in which I've always felt that should be disabled in all forums. Some people tend to carried away. IMHO, it's a useless function.

Can't wait to get my red.

Greetings Jim.

To be honest, I never even paid attention to the Reputation on the forum, it's currently default and maybe I'll just go ahead and remove the ability to give negative reputation.

Sorry about that Jim, thanks for pointing it out, I'm going to take a look into how this is configured and setup and possible improve it.

Agreed. And the fact that it is anonymous makes it easy for others to act cowardly instead of confronting comments head on.

Reputation is updated. Members can no longer leave negative reputation. Which makes complete sense, if you have a problem with a user, click "Report This Post!" at the top, don't leave negative reputation.
