Often they are rude and dismissive to any outsider and their rep is the opposite of their actual usefulness and helpfulness. Of course, this is a different forum, but my feeling is that this system breeds bullies and sycophants by encouraging cliques and mutual back slapping.

    Just my view of course.
    Not just yours.

    a post saying thanks or "I agree" shows that there is backing/support for the original post.
    A rep or award will probably not be seen or noticed by most people and so would not convey that information to the AOS community and would be largely wasted.

    Richard, I think you may be misunderstanding the ethos or mood of this forum. It's more of a social medium, rather than technical. Taking time to thank people fits in nicely, although there is help available if you need it. I use various fora for different things; the 'Wam for bake-offs, diyAudio for building stuff, pfm for circular arguments, Audio Asylum for US based questions, Vinyl Engine, Lenco Heaven, etc.
    You could make AOS more efficient and streamlined, but then what would Marco have left to do? Leave it as it is, I say.

    Correct. Common sense and courtesy apply of course. The occasional bit of discord happens, but is moderated efficiently as need be.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    you can clearly see on 1st post how big the reputation is actually much better and more clear than reading 3 pages of replies ...

    Actually I rather like this idea.

    Marco, can we have as system where we can draw big blue arrows onto the posts that we like please?

    Thanks.
