I had my reputation value go down because an established poster didn't like a thread I created about Hamilton replacing Adam Dunn. In hindsight, I look pretty smart if the Reds trade Dunn and count on Hamilton to replace his production. That being said, I would favor some sort of grading system that grades posters on the quality of their posts. I would be more willing to have an extended wait trying to hear whether or not I would be accepted into the Old Red Guard if I knew how I was doing with the quality of my posts. I believe it would greatly improve the quality of posts on The Sun Deck.
Boss and GIK have expressed the desire to add a reputation system that is a simple thumbs-up/thumbs-down choice to provide user feedback. Reputation results will remain hidden to everyone except the user and will NOT
be considered when determining ORG status.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
