We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
If you want to talk about it, you can do that. No need to be passive agressive about it. Do you mean the vid of a guy breathing out a white cloud? Do you have a screencap of her saying it's her boyfriend? Because now it just says: margaretpalermoIsn't he the cutest? #sexiestmanalive #cutest #hotjapaneseguy #snow And he doesn't look like the other dude she posted. Edit: on second thought, I'm probably just thrown off by the filters… On the other pic, the dude was more tanned.
I agree with making the report button more obvious. Maybe put it near the voting buttons so people are reminded of the option to report before downvoting. Or even do both at the same time. To me it's more like people going to the beach for entertainment and start to complain about sand getting up in their cracks. Of course there are some assholes who think it's hilarious to throw sand in people's faces, but those are in the minority and can be banned if people bother to report.
If you put your opinion out there, you're gonna be criticized; it's no different from real life. Everyone has their own view on things and not everyone's gonna agree with eachother and that's ok. If people are afraid of being downvoted, then they should either get a tougher skin or stay in their little bubble. It gets tiring to read people say "this is probably gonna get downvoted, but…". Who cares? It's not like you're gonna lose your job over it. Your idea of sorting posts by upvotes might work in theory, but I've seen silly/lame/salty jokes (like memes about flakes and such) getting more upvotes than some of the (imho) better posts. Also, some people seem to be handing them out like candy and then start to complain about how they need more rep points.
The forum could be a bit more gender neutral. I use the bannerless theme because the default one is too "girly" for me. Overall, I basically agree with the suggestions made. Especially the ones about reorganizing the subforums and removing the redundant threads. With new members making threads everywhere, it can get rather annoying to browse around. To add a suggestion regarding new threads: on 1.0 members had to have a certain amount of (non-spam) posts before they could start a thread. Maybe that could be reintroduced? OT:
I was hoping for BonBonChucked and Biscuit to become mods. Not familiar with redbowkiki (or Pixel for that matter), but I'm sure everyone will do a great job. Can't wait for things to become more streamlined.
It might be a reach, but couldn't she just be doing hostess work? She's done it before, but had to quit because of her divorce/visa change. And iirc she gave no other reason to quit, so she might have even liked the job for all I know. It would explain her disposable income and why she's allowed to have those hideous nails at work.
According to her logic, being married in Japan for 3 months while living with her Japanese (ex-)inlaws -and complaining about her Japanese (ex-)MIL's daily cleaning schedule- makes her perfectly capable of showing others how to be a Japanese housewife in Japan. Kinda like how she's qualified to speak for all Japanese people after living there for a few years.
Hey guys, I was checking on SocialBlade how much money Marg would be making from her videos (in theory of course). And I saw that she was connected to Fullscreen, while Venus is not. So I was wondering how up-to-date that website is in that respect.
Got it! I don't like the idea of making people upload pics to verify their identity; it feels like an invasion of privacy. I assume the admin and mods to-be won't take advantage of this situation, but I wouldn't want any pics of me floating around somewhere… I feel like it's up to the members to use their limited rep points wisely. Like, to me it's kind of a "waste" to use rep points for a lame joke I happen to laugh at really loudly irl and I choose to use it on posts that make really good points or posts that say things I was too lazy say myself.
1) Aren't those a bit contradictory? Most people up-/downvote a post they (dis)like right away. If you put a limit on the receiving user, the post probably wouldn't get as many votes as they would have without the limit because not a lot of people remember/care enough about a post to go back to said post to vote a (few) day(s) later. 2) Wouldn't that require some manual verification too? Or how do you imagine this method to be applied? 3) Yes! This! Yesterday please! Half of the time I post from my phone (like now) and the clickable options are quite limited. When I use bbcodes because the function isn't available in the toolbar, I'd like to see if I used it correctly before I post.
