Would you mind if the reputation point system disappeared due to a semi-important upgrade?

Yes, I would mind. Please don't upgrade if it breaks the reputation point system!

It would be a shame, but if we must upgrade, I can live without the rep points.

Thanks for your response tigga.

Most times I forget the reputation point. You have opened the message and followed the link, at that moment you forget the message and the clicks for reputation.
And yes, I would prefer a one-click System without changing sites, like Facebook or Pornhub
Maybe we need to differentiate as well between:
links seems cool
I consumed and really liked the link

So confirmed: navigating to this topic via it's original board Rules, which is locked, or via Unread Posts,
caused the problem.

Getting here via e.g. News does the trick: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=26347

It would not bother me to see it go. Whatever is best for the forum.

I like the system, it keeps things cleaner on long boards. and it makes it easier to let the person know personally how much it meant to make the post

We could probably sort of start over the system, i.e. no "Thnx!" littering replies either still.
Just the accumulutated points will be more difficult to transplant, but should be doable eventually.

Could the people who voted the first option send me a PM?

By now it's clear that the vast majority prefers the upgrade, so it's going to happen (in the near future), and I'd like to address your concerns.

Full disclosure: yes I will upgrade the forum, but I'm going to wait until our subscription with our current host runs out, so we can change hosts and upgrade in one fell swoop. That'll be in November.

Unless another big crash occurs again before that time, then I'll do it right away.
