Post Reputation system

I have turned it on

Above each users details there is this icon

You can add reputation for users, for example positive reputation for an informative post like new spy photos or a teaser photo, or insight. Of course people can also remove reputation for negative posts which are not productive to the discussion, are hateful or abusive or disrespectful.

I can see the all the reputation people will add or remove, so please do not abuse the system since I can remove negative reputation if it has been added out of spite.

let's see how this goes and if does not work I will turn it off and we'll need to come up with a better solution to disrespectful posts.

If you hover your mouse over this little green icon for anyone, you can see their reputation status.

the reputation system on vBulletin isn't that great and I want to switch to a new system (free software no license required), but need to find something free which we can transfer the data to and also a host, but if I do not find anything, I feel with the few visitors we get now a days, I feel it might be time to retire the forum.

I fully understand the reasons, but that would be very sad; Honestly, this is the longest running website I regularly visit even today, although I agree that traffic has decreased a lot;

In comparison to say the carsccops discussions, it seems a lot more civilized and informative here, something I thoroughly enjoy.

However, it does seem that the whole concept of forums is decreasing nowadays, not only this. But I hope this one stays around for a little longer....

Oh dear. Sad news if confirmed. I've been around since 2003 or so, this is by far the best place to inform and be informed about automotive news. But as Mick said, this kind of fora is declining day by day.

Oh damn, the threat of this place getting shut down has me extremely bummed. As Mick said, Carscoops just isn't the same. This place feels leagues more mature and the discussion is more in depth.

With Reddit and Blog format dominating now, forums styles like this are definitely dwindling, but I hope it can stay alive. It provides such a good resource to look back and refer to older posts and bring things back up for discussion.

Knowing about this makes me want to contribute more, and I've definitely noticed it slow down in the past few months (blamed it on the pandemic tbh). Will be doing some more posting this week...

Is they any financial help we can give? I'm totally on board to help fund it.
