That seems like kind of a hassle.

Definitely a hassle. I'd expect a rain of tits to pour down and reward me after all that work.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Its basically my idea mixed with other ideas here. The problem is that its difficult to implement and kills part of the fun.

To be clear, it's not about the points.
I have to thank a few users, I know who they are, for my points. I also gave them many points. I like to upvote many posts periodically if I like what they say, just for the good feeling of doing a good action for users I perceive to be nice, and for occasional new users that say something nice or cool. But for me it's fun like a score game. It isn't a really important matter. Not the points.

What bothered me is the attitude. It takes away the fun factor and reveals a trolling behaviour that always annoys me, because, as I said, I had problems in the past in other forums, and this is the first place, EVER, that I like posting on the internet.
I would be here posting like 20 posts a day with or without the points, I'm OK with that. I really like this community.
I think minuses require, just to be polite and follow a correct manner, an explanation.
But I repeat, it's not about the points, it's about the attitude.

Anyway, as Bloodreign said, back to my normal forum activities.

@Lely: I didn't know an amount of posts and time was already required.
It seems some admins went back in time to follow my advice and implement it.
Thanks Bloodreign or whoever traveled back in time to do that.
That was sweet!  :)
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

I was never pleased with having a voting system on this site. It wasn't really necessary. But Jorge likes it, so...

Hey now, I never said that. You seem to have no intention of removing the system despite some complaints, (and you did add it, when nobody ever asked for it, that I know) So I just took that to mean you like this kind of respect/voting thing. I mean, most places seem to do it nowadays.

By talking like this, you are no different from someone who's complaining about getting downvoted. Get over it people, it's just a future, it doesn't say anywhere to use it or else you'll get some penalty or that if you get downvoted a few times you'll get banned from the forums.

Other sites I know but I'm not into, have only a + option.
That would be nice because it only contributes to express good feelings.

As I said 2 times before, it's not the points, it's the attitude.
Getting downvoted by duplicate accounts is exactly trolling, and I behaved pretty peaceful and reasonable about this, I'm not insulting anyone. I was just annoyed for what the action represents, not for the points.
I already said I wouldn't even care if the system goes out. But I am sensible about that kind of actions, it makes me feel sad, because I try to be good to everyone.

I wasn't referring to you. No need to get upset.

The system has long-since fallen from my mind. I don't even use it at all. It's there, but I don't see it, let alone use it.

It would be a lot better if the respect points were only awarded to the post and not accumulated by the user. It should work just like a Facebook like. This would eliminate the sense of hierarchy that is established by the current system, and people would stop caring so much about it.

It should be just a way to show that you like a comment, not a way to show that you like or dislike a user.
