Is the minus button back?

34 posts in this topic

I was looking at a thread earlier and saw that many of the comments had negetive rep. point thingies.

If it is back can someone please tell me how to use it.

Why? Rep is almost pointless without it.

Because the minus is extremely abusable

Yeah, why did rep only come in when the minus was gone?? Won't everyone just be a plus

I'd like the minus button to return but not the minus count. That probably sounds confusing, but the idea is that you could vote to bring +'s back down, but they would never drop below zero. Spares us the petty negative fights but lends more weight to the actual count. Really, I feel like without a minus button the plus button is worthless.

In the end though, meh.

minus button brings down the quality of CDC forums IMO.

PPL become afraid to express them selves freely, they only write pots that would avoid them getting a minus rep. I found this to happen the last two times the minus button was around.

I think the whole rep thing is pointless, friends plus each others posts and ppl write clever one sentence posts just to get pluses. One could have a huge plus rating without ever posting a knowledgeable paragraph about hockey.

OP's question was answered..

I don't see what the big deal is whether CDC has this feature or not.

If I could Adblock the feature altogether I would because that's how meaningless it is.

As much as I wish there was a minus button sometimes, it was abused and used to harass individuals anonymously, which is not how it was intended. I am glad its gone, but I still miss it.

My guess is you saw an old thread from when the minus button was still available.

If the minus button gets back, everybody will be afraid to make proposals, or even post.
