Default RE: New Feature: Reputation Levels

This is the type of thing that is causing this board to lose members.

The kindness, open-minded and welcoming by all has slowing been replaced to be controlled by a small group - a clique I believe it's called.

It's a shame. A lot of us enjoyed it here.

So sorry you feel that way.

I see it as people with the time and sincere desire to
share whatever they can with all our members.

Cool

I am not sure about this feature either. I have emailed Karen for further explanation. At first glance it reminded me of the jr. high "slam" books that went around rating everyone
and that could be very hurtful.

Time and desire to post are reflected in post count IMHO. I am not part of any clique nor to I want to be.

Wow...I just now noticed it. I love the reputation thingies. We have them on other boards I visit and it has nothing to do with cliques. It's a way to send someone a thanks or short private message without actually sending them a PM. The term "reputation level" is actually not appropriate for the particular feature. Have you received some negative messages or something? You can check by going into your User CP and looking under your subscribed threads.

ETA ~ Other boards I visit don't leave on the "I disapprove". You can only approve.

It has nothing to do with cliques at all. Do you ever shop on ebay? If so, than you are probably familiar with feedback ratings, I think that's what they are called. Anyways, the reputation levels are just "kudos" we can give each other for threads and posts.

I know on a bigger site rep points seem to cause nothing but trouble, they also seem to be a different type of people. I would hate for anyone to feel this site has become cliquish, I love the diversity of people i talk with.

sorry tressa you feel that way. i dont believe there is any clique here. there are a handful of members here that have been here since day one. i myself got here 2 months later. i feel that the more i make an effort to pm people and chat i feel i get to know them better. those who dont post much and just are here to get the deals and freebies lose out. i am here for both. when i first signed up it was only for the freebies. but by chatting with others here i have made lots of friends. i can tell you that there is definitely no "clique" on this board. this is the best bargain site on the net by far! hugs to you (hope that makes you feel a little better)

As someone who has come to this site late in the game, I do not feel like there is a clique here, I was welcomed with open arms, and feel very much at home here.....This has fast become my favorite stop online. I love my buddies, and I like being able to show them with a little something extra (buddy points). You have no idea how this site has helped with the loneliness that I feel when DH is deployed.....

You have to spread them out so you cant just give to the same person repeatedly. I like it and I always leave a comment of some kind

Everyone here has always been kind to me as well.

Apparently I'm having a very hard winter. Ignore me.
