Default Color Blind

I have observed many a times reasonable comments(not referring to only my comments) are marked "Red" though I have never seen unreasonable comments being given "Green"

I used to get affected earlier but now I have tried to become Color Blind, bottomline is , I visit IV to see the possibility of getting the Green Card ---with or without "Red" dots

Sounds like you are little too much disturbed with red dots. People really don't have to put lot of efforts to distrub you. Just one red dot is enough.

What are you complaining now? You already got lot of points with complaints (seems similar to pakistan, keep complaining and get more help from US).

You have done great job in past. Don't lower your dignity by using cheap words like psycho etc. It doesn't help.

If you agree, join this thread and ask IV to allow each of us to see the names of all the people along with their comments/dots. Sounds reasonable????

My reason for asking this is because I suspect that the agents of some tracker website are deliberately leaving nasty comments for everyone so that we stop visiting IV. I think thats a real possibility.

What say?
Folks

Think about this. Just because someone's belief/idea does not find favor with a lot of people, the poor guy gets bombarded with reds, nullifying the person's greens. This totally masks the previous good contributions from this person.

This is what I have to suggest: if possible, can we not go in for an extra row of reputation dots: one will be for greens, the other for reds.

This may not still be the perfect way but at least will give everyone better vision into a poster's reputation. Currently, a poster stands to have their entire reputation erased if they get bombarded with dots of opposite color and this definitely works against the purpose of displaying reputation.

I also find merit in sanju's idea of disclosure of id's.

Default IV should stop the red/green thingie altogether

IV should stop the red/green thingie altogether.

I hope that the IV admins will realize one day that red/green thingie is destroying this organization.

Thanks for the greens yaba/marph.. Getting red or for that matter green for no reason is what is difficult to understand.

We have been keeping red and green till now as it helps moderation of the forums by the community. Else Moderators have more work monitoring the posts. We have also been more liberal since past few months and have not been moderating, closing or banning users Unless absolutely needed. People get angry when we delete their post or thread and do not respect the decision. Thus we generally let things go on now and have them express their opinion with minimal interference by moderators. Users having lot of reds can easily be identified and looked at by moderators if any action is needed.Once you remove the anonymity of giving red or green, people will be hesitant to give red or green. Maybe we can just remove the comment feature but then it helps users know why a green or red is given. I guess there are advantages and disadvantages to it and people are misusing this feature.

Pappu,

You are right, some members are really misusing this feature, the comments are very abusive.
Removing the comment option seems to be a good idea, rather than completely removing the reputation feature.

Thanks for explaining!
