What does it matter? It's the least important part of this forum. Ignore them if you don't like them and ignore the people who rep you poorly. I have some negitive rep about comments of disagreement I had with people, but on other websites that use the repping system, thats normal use.
Exactly, It isn't like I look at someones rep to see if what they say makes a difference to me.

But what he says does have some solid point, if you team is a chairmans team (a team that focuses on winning CA) you may neg rep someone for saying winning is important compared to if your a competition team ( a team who wants to win design/competition trophys) you may give the poster a positive rep.

The above applies to my first point, how many of you honestly look at rep in order to judge somebody's idea or contribution to a discussion?

I think rep should have some bearing on a person's contribution to a discussion. I also think rookie year should have some bearing as well. If a rookie with one green dot makes a somewhat dubious claim on a technical issue, I don't think many people would be inclined to believe that claim. If a long-time FIRST mentor with the full rep points backed up this statement I think more people would believe it. That said, there's no reason someone with very little rep can't have a lot to contribute to a discussion.

Re: Negative Repping...

Hey guys, I think that we need to get off of this topic as it is becoming a bad fighting thread. Please, if you have the answer then answer, but do not post any more personal opinions as far as this should go. I think this thread needs to be closed.

P.S. I'm not going to point anyone out.

Re: Negative Repping...

I personally don't look at their reputation points, I just know the actual reputation of most people on this forum. If I don't know the person I just look to see what their rookie year is.

For example, I don't think I have alot of reputation points, because usually, I rarely post. But in my 4 years I have become engulfed in FIRST and know very much about mechanical, electrical and programming. I never ever, and I mean never ever posted in the programming forum, but I have been working in embedded systems for a long time now. Now if someone asked something about one of their personal projects and what kind of microcontroller to use, a very very respected individual such as Alan Anderson or Kevin Watson may reply saying their opinions on a microchip PIC, but then I may chime in and start talking about Atmel AVRs (lets say alan and kevin have never worked with AVRs before). Since I have a way lower rep then the other 2 guys does that mean my information is less useful? No, both sugestions are perfectly valid, just because they have higher rep doesn't mean that PICs are better to use. Maybe in this paticular case an AVR is the right uC to use, but if you go by rep, you wouldn't listen to me in comparison to Alan and Kevin.


I am for the most part an observer on these forums, that doesn't mean my input is worth less just because of a few green dots.

Re: Negative Repping...

The issue isn't whether or not people generate opinions of one another based on how many green or red dots appear next to their name. I believe the issue that Cody had is that reputation was given for the wrong reasons. If you're using the reputation system, use it right (check out the FAQ link posted above)... If you're not going to use it? Fine.

This ground has been covered over and over. Liz's message is about as good as any to close this thread.

Let's all try to get along, it isn't that complicated.
