I hope you like my ideas:
* Have people give each other compliments on the profile
* Have people decorate the profile

But it should be a common one. A problem I have on many message boards is that I often tend to be the guy that corrects misinformation and shoots down BS, which isn't very popular, so in some communities I get lots of negative votes from folks that I just corrected because nobody likes being told that they're in error. So, if someone looks at those votes/scores/feedback it would look like I'm a terrible member of those communities, even though the opposite is true.

Long explanation short:
Someone suggests that 3+3=7, I reply by correcting them, and I get negative feedback for it.

Hmm, I see where you're going, I voted yes, because I like the decorating idea, but I agree with everyone else about rating people. It's bad for the self-esteem.

First thing is already possible using a personalized profile.

The second thing should only be implemented if the profile can only be edited by that person.

I don't think they are talking about the on forum profile ... looks more like the other profile view (the place where mods can add comments)
like here: profile

and Yes... I am a great fan of IPB's profile system ... I'd love to see it on FM.
IPB profiles offer
*latest posts organized in an intellegent fashion
*ability to post photo on profile
*ability to leave comment on profile by all members (a thank you shoutbox in your profile)
*friends /foe list
*more info and stats
*etc

That is what I was talking about. A personalized profile will allow you to add a box for members to add comment to in the profile.

BUT other people can edit the other comments. You wouldn't want that, would you?

Yes that idea is great. I'm a Moderator of a vB forum and you have the ability to customise your profile and it's pretty good.

Well, because this is not Myspace and the forums are actually for chat, Get Help (Like mine), Meet people, Share stuff, but no to watch users profiles. Sorry, but this is my opinion.

This has already been suggested, I fail to see WHY this poll has had so many posted replies..

http://help.forumotion.com/suggestions-for-your-forums-f30/would-you-like-to-see-a-network-feature-t30500.htm

It is exactly the same as the other member who suggested this idea.

My answer is the same now as it was then "NO!"

With all due respect, this is a terrible idea, it loses the essence of a Forum and becomes something of a Profile viewing site where you leave people silly messages, swap phone numbers and MSN handles, add pictures to your profile of yourself... and before you know it, it's become a dating agency site...

I do NOT want my Forum to become like a Myspace or another place where people come for the lonely hearts club..

I am strongly against this idea.
