Negative Reputation Ratings

I'm going to implement a rule here, effective from now on.

If you leave negative reputation points for a user, you absolutely MUST state a reason in the comments. Negative ratings left without a comment will receive an administrative reciprocal negative rating, which is worth 12 points deducted from your reputation. Please keep in mind that admin can see who left what rating and that this system is not a popularity contest.

The reasoning behind the comment rule is to prevent abuse of the system and leave constructive criticism and/or suggestions for improvement, rather than a simple "I don't approve." Ratings with no comment or suggestion will only leave the user wondering and likely angry. We simply would like to avoid that situation. Wouldn't you like to know why you were rated negatively if in that situation? I think we all would.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Stephanie

How can we tell in our own user ratings that it's negative??? How can we tell the difference between the 2 when we're looking at our own profile?

A positive will have a purplish dot like the ones you see in threads, negative a blue dot. Grey dots are neutral, in that usually the person posting has less than the necessary 50 posts to add or detract from a user's reputation.

Thanks Jade. I just got graded low, and although I don't mind, as everyone has different opinions and I know things sometimes get taken differently on a forum than what was intended, I still would like to know why they dissagree. There is a chance I might learn something, which is always appreciated! I can't change unless I know what to change.

The goal is to make the system constructive, rather than destructive, hence the now required comments. I really hesitated in even enabling it but think that we're all mature enough to use it within certain guidelines, you know?

I agree. I think it's a great feature personally, and have so much fun letting others know how much they have helped me on this forum with questions etc. Good job again, like always!

It's actually a dark grey, but those are there for your reference.

You're welcome. (Also if you right click on one it'll say reputation_pos, reputation_neg, or reputation_balance as the image name. )

Carmen, you have to go to Properties to find the image name.

You can check your reputation and the last people you rated in your User CP main page.
