    Not really.

    I would have to go back to the post to see if it had been awarded anything - usually I am looking for the next post.

    I was on a sports site that used rep points and tbh there was some amount of clique repping went on...likes as well. When the cliques got outdone by the norms they then demanded all were reset to 0 as they were behind.... It was a farce as i had the most and wasnt in a clique lol

    Lol... No it isn't, Richard. Perhaps, that's simply your perception? I know where you're coming from, but the reality is that AoS is choc-full of very experienced audiophiles/music lovers and there are also a number of genuine experts in their field, who technically know their stuff and are on hand and willing to help any members who need it.

    However, that advice/expertise is framed within a community of genuinely nice people, which creates the friendly and informal vibe that AoS is renowned for.

    I think that's perhaps where you're getting the "social medium" aspect from. I dislike the rather 'cold' and detached atmosphere that exists on other forums, where often you feel as if you're interacting more with a 'computer-generated entity' than a fellow human being. So the 'warm & cosy' vibe on AoS, created to contrast that, is entirely deliberate and a big part of what the forum is about.

    pfm for circular arguments..
    I think that's rather unfair now on pfm and doesn't reflect the reality. Since Tony's booted a number of long-time selfish irritants, who were simply there because they enjoyed a (circular) argument and to ram home their 'opinions', to the detriment of others, pfm has vastly improved in that respect, and is now, IMO, a very good and informative forum. It's certainly the only other forum I read other than here.

    You could make AOS more efficient and streamlined, but then what would Marco have left to do? Leave it as it is, I say.
    Lol... Indeed, can't have me 'wearying'!

    However, I think that "efficient and streamlined" somewhat misses the point. We like to think that the forum is well run, but things happen 'organically' here, rather than in a structured or regimented manner, which Richard (the OP) appears to want, and given his background in computing (and his associated analytical brain) that is not entirely surprising

    Hopefully, Richard will understand what I mean by that. So we won't be introducing any 'reputation system' here (not least because of what Grant has outlined in relation to cliques), even though I fully appreciate and understand Richard's reasons for requesting such, as I feel it would detract from what makes AoS uniquely AoS, and the 'organic spontaneity' that makes it special.

    Marco.

    In this case we can close this thread as it will not serve any purpose from now

    Lol... What are you like?

    You seem to want to impose 'control' on things. Not everything is so quickly 'done and dusted'. What if others have something else they want to say on the subject? Therefore, the thread will remain open to allow for that. Indeed, we only close threads here in exceptional circumstances, usually only to stop circular arguments.

    Marco.

    Ah, that's interesting.
    I might well give PFM another go -- I'll see if the 'right' people have been booted!
