A while back, I posted a blog entry on this subject here:
We've had some time to live in the environment and I collected much feedback from the community. I wanted to raise this issue again to see how you think the current reputation system is working.
One drawback that we continue to run into is that newer community members don't really understand the feedback system and give unintended negative feedback.
What I've done as of this writing is to remove the negative feedback option and only allow positive feedback. Another option we have is instead of the "positive feedback" system, we could use a "Likes" system as shown here:
I'm interested to hear some more feedback. To review, our options are:
1. Positive and Negative feedback available
2. Positive feedback only
3. Likes system
As always, I'm open to changes that make as many as possible feel comfortable in contributing.
