Reputations

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have no idea whatsoever where this query should go and Moderators please feel free to move if necessary. I cannot imagine that this will be a long a protracted saga so I imagine it will stay here. Your call guys.

I have gathered a few reputations recently (as far as I know all neutral) and all surprising.

However, as a result, I was wondering just what the protocol is, or should be, when one gets a reputation. Do we PM the donor and thank them, obviously only if it is positive LOL. Should we acknowledge receipt in any other way.

On the other side, should one decide to give (if possible) a negative reputation ie for unwarranted snide, cutting or abusive comments, is there a means of counter acting these or having them removed, through moderation.

I have looked through the forums and can not find anything relevant, so, being mystified, I decided to put the question.

Regards to all

Tony Chilcott

You can if you like thank the forum member,  Most folks do not though.  

The reputation system is a nice way of agreeing with another Forum member without having to respond to the post.

 The ability to give another forum member a Negative reputation was removed some time ago as it was being abused.

Elaine,

Thanks for your input. I would like to just add that it would also be nice to give a reputation if you very much disagree with an opinion but it  is presented in a fair and reasonable way.  

In any case, for those who have given me a reputation, I publicly thank you and will endeavour to pass on my gratitude via PM in future.

Regards to all

Tony

For those posts, you should hit the report button (Report Post) in the post that has abusive comments.  Reports go immediately to the attention of AVSIM moderators.  They may or may not take action as what you report depending on the report.

Best regards,

Jim

I guess you could if you really wanted to. I personally don't because I don't even bother keeping track of it. I have way too many things to do and not enough time in a day to do it all, so that's the least of my concerns. Occasionally I may glance at it if I'm really bored.
