After a couple of times, people may quit voting negatively all together and then you may be back where you started to begin with. And I have to agree with Woy, I'd post @$&#^*% instead of giving a reason or comment just because I don't like be forced to do anything. The way I look at voting negative is the same way I look at booing the players on the field, you have to keep doing something pretty bad for that to happen and no comment is necessary.

    The comment field is there for people who choose to utilize it. If anyone wants to give props to a member of Live or offer encouragement, thats fine. If someone feels the need to offer constructive criticism, I think thats fine too. No need to make it mandatory. IMO

    Why do we have to make a comment? Vote and be done with it.

    Well some people might not understand why they get a negative one, a little comment "You went a little negative on that topic" or something might help.

    No one is asking anyone to leave their name in the comment field, just the reason for the comment.

    I think it should be up to the giver to remain anonymous if they choose. There's a comment field if people want to put their names or comments there.

    Leave it alone. Leave it private. Keep it honest.

    It's like a curtain on a voting booth.

    It was mentioned earlier that their name automatically appear when they vote. It was never mentioned/asked that anyone submit their name in the comments section. Two different things the way I am understanding it.

    When you speak ill of someone, is it more honorable to say it to their face or say it behind their back?

    Well, why dont you just type "123" in the comment field then? Its a value and you arent saying anything constructive.

    Do you want to have to deal with the animosity that will bleed onto the board when people start cat fights on here because it is known who left negative feedback?

    If so, by all means. If you agree to make it mandatory to disclose usernames leaving negative feedback then there should be yet another rule making the discusion of it cause for banning on the forum. Meaning if someone gets mad and posts so-in-so (or even "somebody") left me negative feedback...yadda yadda yadda. Automatic suspension or banning. There are groups of friends here and if one of them gets "picked" on then others will retaliate. This will turn into an ugly mess.

    If it would fit I would put something about Spreadin' the rep to those under 200! Too long though. If you think of something shorter lemme know!

    So many great posts from Live only members...must go spread it there first!
