But it is also a place for a simple "agreee/disagree" which voting system provides.

Anyone new who has come here with a good attitude is generally given a wide enough berth, but once they reveal their idiocy, why should it be tolerated?


Intolerance towards nonsense isn't the issue, the problem is that certain long-time members us it as an excuse to go on the attack and start posting nonsense themselves to bolster their "rep".

Sure, some of us who have been here longer get some slack, we cross lines we probably shouldn't. But, to a point, that's been earned in some fashion. In some way we've all at least tried to contribute.


Posts should be accessed on the merits of their content, not the reputation of the poster.
A seniority based pecking order is something to be avoided; unfortunately, the voting/reputation system plays right into its hands.

People don't usually give downvotes to posts that go against their own beliefs or whatever, but rather to utterly stupid comments or actions.


Those two go hand in hand around here; "You post something against my beliefs and do it with the usual hyperbole (that I'm guilty of using myself), so I downvote you, call you a moron and rack up a couple of upvotes from my buddies as a bonus".

View PostSangman, on 09 January 2014 - 03:47 PM, said:

Another flaw is that a lot of members don't get nearly enough downvotes, so you get jackasses with a high rep because they get upvotes for good posts, but no downvotes for any of their shitposts.


You're being generous here, those "shitposts" are actually upvoted on a regular basis.

Overall, I like this board because of my fondness for Duke 3D, its function as the homebase of the Duke 3D preservation society (which I am admittedly not a part of, alpha brain and all that), the fact that there is still plenty of interesting stuff posted and the opportunity to fill the "listening" thread with semi-obscure music that probably very few people care about.
What I appreciate less is that these forums frequently remind me of the clich├ęd US high school popularity system, with nerds and newbies on one side and the circle jerking cool kids on the other.

The voting system is such a non-issue. I could care less if someone's abusing it to get their rep up. Luckily, I don't judge people here based on their rep. I can judge the quality of their posts myself and decide whether I agree with them or not. If I agree I upvote...if I feel like it. If I disagree I downvote it...if I feel like it. And I can say all this because I have never complained about the voting system or being downvoted.



(now upvote my awesome smart and informative post)

I abuse the vote system.

Occasionally I will intentionally shit post, whine, rant, whatever just to see how many downvotes i can get.

I hardly ever downvote, but I will downvote people who whine about downvotes, extremists hate rants, people i want to annoy, and Yatta - but this is used lieu of an upvote.

I upvote when posts make me laugh, when something is helpful, or a very intelligent and articulate post - usually in response to some idiocy


X-Vector's generalization of the forum over the supposed activities of a handful of individuals is the exact activity and attitude that he projects himself as being opposed to. Spewing anti-prejudice declarations while lumping together a group of people on an internet forum has to be incredibly self satisfying. Must be fun to stand on the fence and throw rocks at both sides.

I'm no saint. I do the same thing (a Nazi is a Nazi as far as I'm concerned), but look in the mirror first before you start flinging accusations around haphazardly.

Pretty sure I was the first person to start the "downvote Yatta" trend. At least since he gave himself the giant negative rep.

It isn't, because I didn't generalise the forum - I just described my opinion of some of the recurring activities of some of the people in here and the way some of them band together.
Maturity doesn't just mean posting sensible stuff yourself, it also means dealing maturely with others' immaturity.
Members like Blue Lightning and Mikko Sandt may ruffle some feathers, but I don't see that as an excuse to start flinging poop around and turn this board (or a portion of it) into a virtual kindergarten at the first opportunity.

I guess my main issue is that certain people simply don't want to take any responsibility for their actions and the consequences thereof, feel they shouldn't be obliged to do so in any way and get antsy when called upon.
If my reaction seems a bit severe, then it's most likely because I perceive this as a problem that extends far beyond this particular forum; IMDb boards, Youtube commentary, television, politics, "real life", it's pretty much everywhere.

I blame reality TV and the "dumbing" down of moral and ethical standards

interesting cross-section. The definition of narcissism combined with circular argumentation based on vague statements with multiple meanings.
"I'm smarter than you because you can't pin me down to make me say exactly what I mean."

it's entertaining to harass people who will never admit when they're wrong

if it looks like a turd, smells like a turd......

I don't see you making an effort to address these posts when they're made by "some of the people" right when they happen, apart from going on about it after the fact.

X-Vector, you might enjoy the board more if you were to actually CONTRIBUTE to discussions instead of complaining.

In all fairness, if you really did request that before I made the change on my own profile, it must've been a complete coincidence. :D
