Re: A 3 button admin only demerit system?
Interesting idea, but it doesn't have to replace the suggested 3-button positive rating scale. You could have both.

The admin rating would be good for the reasons you suggest, but there should be some automatic reduction--say 1 point per week reduced automatically. That should serve the desired purpose, while offering a way to work one's way clear.

The 3-button positive post feedback seems like a great idea. It gives folks something to strive for. I like to see expectations raised, and this might just help do that.

All in all, having an admin negative and a poster positive feedback rating might be just the ticket.

Re: Reputation Points
I really like Post of the Month, I think it's been remarkable successful at bringing light on the best posts, rewarding good posts and promoting the best of the site. I think any new system you bring in should try and be closer to that model than any other.

Agreed.

Your three-tiered rating system could be:

--Post of the day
--Post of the week
--Post of the month

This would 1) eliminate the negative ratings, 2) give three levels of accolades, and 3) stay reasonably close to what works currently.

You could then assign values to each and calculate a score.

Re: Reputation Points
AbE; Shouldn't admin messages and accounts be exempt from ratings?

And from ignore?

Re: positive rating only avoids problems
I suggested long ago:

Post of the Day
Post of the Month
Post of the Year

No negatives, and easy to understand and use. Scoring could be by some symbol followed by a number representing any of the above awards bestowed.

A better measure...
A better measure would be cheers x 100 divided by total posts.

That way useless posts would be penalized while substantive posts would be encouraged.

That way, two cheers out of 100 posts would give a rating of 2, while 2 cheers out of 50 posts would give a rating of 4.

Re: A better measure...
Well and good, Coyote, but this will really discourage YECs and even OECs.

I don't think we want that.

??

No we don't want that.

But I don't think it would discourage them much--nothing, not even evidence seems to faze most of them.

But it might encourage better posts from them?
