Actually, the whole point is that users can give positive or negative points depending on the quality of your posts. In essence, this is a way to see who teh consistently bad and consistently good posters are.

The big flaw in all of this is that, who will actually use it? I'm all for it and I do hope people use it, however I'm guessing most people will ignore it.

lmao check out your square how many points you have? how do you give negatives.....but my whole idea on that users giving negative points is that theres a few members that dislike others and will go on a rampage....

If they want to ignore it they can. Nothing is mandatory in the system. There aren't any penalties associated with it or anything either so... if someone wants to ignore it... they can and should. I certainly hope no one would feel they have to pay attention to it.

Those that like it and want it can have it their way too.

Read the FAQ. It's been discussed there. That's basically impossible to do.

Rampages are deterred by the same methods "popularity contests" are.

For more info on that you can read post number 9 here (http://216.58.161.130/forums/showthread.php?t=26174).

That ability is earned through the system itself. As you go up the scale you get this and other features that open up.

I'm just hoping this isn't a "popularity" contest.

Jared, could you give us a link to the FAQ on this? When I type in "Contributor" or "Contributor System", nothing comes up. "No Matched Found".
Thanks in advance.
