    Recs are used in a silly way since a lot of time now and taking a look at the Recommended post forum it's a complete waste of time.
    One out of 10 posts maybe is really worth a rec,the other 9 are garbage.
    Let's eliminate recs and the recs count completely!!

    Let's not!

    I like them, actually. But I would like to see the improvement (because I think it is) originally proposed by others, of a list of people in the post who actually recced a particular post.

    Perhaps a rec moderator would help. Only allowing through recs to the posts that deserve them.

    but why should a mod determine what deserves a rec

    just cancel out the people that go through and rec all the posts by a particular person or in a particular thread

    Each persons rec should be given a weighting which reduces if they give out a lot of recs. I've suggested this before.

    Perhaps you should have rec accounts - get the right to give out ten recs when you subscribe, plus 1 free rec a week after that - anything more comes out of your own recs

    perhaps we should be able to wager recs on games. Or give recs in exchange for goods and services. Recs should become the currency of RHP

    How about those who give a toss about recs continue to do so, and those who don't ignore them? Would that work for everybody?
