I don't believe it affected visibility, since it applied to posters rather than posts, but it was anonymous. Plus, it was a like/dislike system, which caused yet more drama.

Just don't bring it back. Period. More trouble than it was worth.

Yeah, what this guy said. I wish there were a button I could press to express through numerical values that I agree with you </sarcasm on that last bit>
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

Yeah, okay, this obviously isn't going to happen.
I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Color is not as black and white as we like to think.

I think it depends on the forum. It may work for some and not for others. Kiwi Farms has a huge rating system and there is very little drama surrounding those. Maybe it's because the userbase are the type of people not to give a shit about how their posts are rated. But some forums can get into fights over things like a rating system and this is one of those that can't handle a rating system of any kind.

Kiwi farms is, with all due respect, a shithole, and I don't think we're better off emulating them.
