    Post Antipoints?

    Antipoints? I'm pretty sure the Cosmos-forum is about the only forum where antipoints are used the way they are supposed to be.... but then again... Do you think AP's should apply to Cosmos or not?

    Yes, it's good to reward the well-written, well thought out posts. And it's good to punish the stupid posts, or the ones that don't belong here.
    Why am I still here?

    Yeah I don't see why not. If I see a post that I think deserved AP's, then I'll give it some greenies. It doesn't matter who posted it or where it is. But I don't believe in giving out negative points anyway since it doesn't really achieve anything IMO. So if I don't like a post, I just ignore it .

    I would say leave the antipoints in for Cosmos for the reasons noted by Alcatraz.

    Of course antipoints should apply to Cosmos, otherwise we'd get all the idiots flooding the forum with mindless comments. Insightful comments should be rewarded whilst those who make stupid posts should receive negative antipoints.

    I don't give AP because I (dis)agree with a post, but only if there is obvious time, effort and understanding there, which is why I probably don't get many antipoints from this forum.

    It doesn't matter either way. Not too many members use them in cosmos.

    how about...get rid of the bad antipoints? like....have only good antipoints, that way you'll know if someone has been ..er..'good' or if they have been doing nothing.

    Yeah, what he said....lol. If I see a well thought out, and well written post, I would like to have the opportunity to give greenies for it. And there isn't really anything to be gained by giving reds, unless it's someone who really really needs it. I think most of the people who respond to the Cosmos forum are mature enough to be able to use the Antipoint system correctly.

    I'm pretty sure the Cosmos-forum is about the only forum where antipoints are used the way they are supposed to be....
    I agree.

    I concur.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
