Can we just remove the respect from the side info? I honestly find it worse than post count. We can already vote up and down players posts to show if we like it or not, but showcasing it as the amount of respect someone has is trivial to me.
Removing it will also prevent situations like this from ever happening again.
I know you’re joking (for the record, it didn’t give me a hard time at all but that just might be another one of your jabs at me) but I’d just like to respond to your reasons so others may understand in case the question pops up again.
It honestly didn’t do anything. It isn’t an accurate way to determine how much respect you have or how well you’re doing on the forums. I could easily go through and downvote posts I find to be unnecessary, trivial, or just unhelpful and a vast majority of people here would go into the negatives for respect. That doesn’t mean I find someone to be undeserving of respect, it would mean I just didn’t like or care for a large amount of posts they made.
If I couldn’t get it removed, I’d just turn it into a completely positive thing. No down voting at all. But then again, people would abuse that too just to show how ‘positive’ they are in the community. So all in all, I find it in the best interest of the community to not have it at all.
