    Can we have the recs back now?

    Nobody can deny that the forums have deteriorated badly since.
    I think it has been a suitably long enough trial period without them, so hows about it?

    And the trial was a success wasn't it? Who needs recs?

    A recommendation. If you think a post is really stupid, as a subscriber you
    can recommend it for the hall of shame. Then, if enough recs are handed
    out to a post it is automatically removed from the thread and placed in a the
    hall of shame thread (again, only available to subscribing members) so that
    we can all have a good laugh.

    Ever wondered where some of the posts in certain threads went? That's right.
    Hall of shame.

    What do you mean can we have our recs back?

    Did not we always have them and have them still?

    Perhaps he means the rec-count in our forum profiles? Whatever he meant,
    I think the recommendation system should be removed completely. You
    hardly ever see any of the truly read-worthy, thought-provoking posts in the
    recommended posts thread anyway. Short, sometimes clever, meaningless
    insults seem to be the most popular posts to recommend for some reason.
    Looking at the recommended posts list you'd think this place is full of
    ignorant fools and... [old joke warning]oh, wait, that's right. It is![/old
    joke warning]

    Ignore Stocken. He's just bitter about the Rec system because no one but his tiny, clique of 'yes-men' ever bother to recommend any of the drivel-filled, uninspired, chatroom-like garbage he spams here.

    A few months back, it used to show the total number of Rec's you had under where it shows your total 'Moves' on your forum profile. Unfortunately, a few people started a pointless argument about the rec system (as they saw it as the bane of all evil here), it all got out of hand and the admins removed the Total Rec Count from everyone's profile. A few of the hardcore complainers from each side of the argument still bang on about these days and threads like these pop up!

    Actually the forums are much the same as ever, only less entertaining because people are drifting away and/or putting in less effort.

    The only good thing about scrapping the rec system was that the "victory" finally quietened those who had whipped up a false and extremely boring controversy.

    Predictably, the same spamming/mutual antipathies/insults etc. remain.

    So why did you leave the SM?
