    I think this has been discussed before, but 'like for like' BS would become rampant if this idea was implemented.

    If you ask a mod, they can tell you how many likes you have. But that's about as far as you're gonna get for something like this.

    The only thing that would come from that idea is an inflated ego and it wouldn't properly show a members worth. I am pretty much a non-entity on the site, and despite the fact that I am liked/known reasonably well, I would have very few likes which would not exactly be truthful to my actual worth. It is simply another ego inflating feature and while the user titles don't necessarily show if a member is useful, it shows how well he is known, which is essentially what you are aiming for.

    E-peen/Ego ideas never really go well.

    I'd say let the member's posts speak for them rather than some silly rating.

    People wouldn't be able to stand how many stars i'd have, so they'd ask for the system to be removed anyway.

    We don't need any more e-peen shit. Postcount whoring is bad enough.

    Yeah we don't really need this sort of thing here, having a likes system is bad enough already (many staff were against it). But at least with our likes system unlike others you can only vote peoples posts up and the likes level is secret and only accessible by staff. Otherwise it would be just as unbearable as other systems and it would lead to epeen whoring.

    at least with likes you can just click the 'Like' button on a post your like, instead of replying a one-word post such as "+1" or "^" or "^ this" or "^ what he said" etc.

    ^What he, and everyone else said.

    Medals are our sort of way to do that. If you have a nice amount of medals, (Postcount.) it says you either are helpful or you're a very opinioned person. If you weren't, and were a spambot you'd be gone already.

    Variable user-rating levels would just be subject to abuse, as people would use just because they like or dislike a guy.

    Also, take a Bonemonkey for example. He was funny (kinda), everybody loved him- That'd let him have a ridiculously high rating level.

    Would've that meant he was a good user? Even Mod-material, at that? Nope. :P

    I already have an inflated ego. So I support this motion.

    No need. I think medals work just fine.

    Besides I don't need anyone to tell me I'm awesome.
    I already know it. B-)

    There'd be no 6 out of 5 stars rating for me so I don't support this.

    But in all seriousness many people would be subject to just getting other members to trash/inflate their/someone else's rating. We have likes and reputation is earned and known around websites, not dictated by a rating.


    Medals aren't even a status symbol, they only show how much you've posted or as an easy way to identify staff. I don't show any more or less respect for someone with three blue medals compared to one green one (not the Global Mod one, the newbie one). We have retards here with thousands of posts and intelligent members with a lot less, and trust me, I notice it every single day.

    The awesome users already have special medals underneath our avatars.

    If you saw how many "stars" I had, people would be compelled to riot until I'm out of the staff team, due to pure jealousy.
