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

Why? Rep is almost pointless without it.

I plussed this because I couldn't minus that other statement

I agree with that, but only in certain cases. People should be able to have the ability to use the minus button, but they should also give intelligent replies as to why they are using the minus button in the first place.

But if it was used wisely, guys like yete and Pasific Coluseum wouldn't be here. And CDC would be a much better place.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

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

Not sure where you've been but we had both plus and minus rep for some time before the neg button was removed.

It seems as though CDC will keep going through a cycle of kill the minus, bring back the minus.

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.

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

This.................and it was a way for trolls to keep score.



If anyone is overly concerned with this silly little button you don't seem to grasp the concept of a MESSAGE board.
Hockey is the only sport, the rest are just games.

Bring it back but have a mercy rule like they do in the Little League World Series. No one post can be pummeled down too far.

This.

Best way to get a plus isn't a well thought out post. It's by posting something short, perhaps witty (but not necessarily witty), within the first few post of a thread.

If the minus button comes back, 90% of the users on here will put on their shades and V-necks and be total D-Bags to the people trying to post a topic worthy of Discussion.

How exactly would the minus button keep trolls away? Would the still not be able to post on the forum, or was there a rule where once you hit a certain number of -'s you were banned or something?

Exactly, which makes the whole rep system a farce. Just do away with it entirely if you're not going to have a method to keep it in check.
People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

Oh...I thought the rep was added after the minus was gone but all the old minus/plus you received in the past would be included inside the rep
