    Now we have the rec limit so they will only be given for a very good post why not allow us to use them in our clan forums... I love chatting with the clan guys and would also love the chance to rec some of the great contributions and comments they have made. if I choose to use my 10 in this way, why not?

    If a post received lots of recs in the private forums and was on the first page of the recommended posts list the whole thread would still be unreadable and hence probably meaningless to others.

    i can see where you're coming from in your suggestion but as Dr Strangelove pointed out in the recom posts it'll be confusing to others. Also this will also have the potential to cause friction between clans on wrecking sprees (i.e. one member of a clan getting all the recs from their fellow clan members). Then we could find ourself in the same position we were before.

    Bad move, open to abuse.

    I don't usually give recs, and never more than a couple of them a month, so a limit of 10 a month doesn't really bother me. I never got many recs myself, so getting lots of recs doesn't bother me, either. I only just hit triple figures in little more than a year, so I got an average of maybe 8 a month.

    But now I've got 10 a month to use, if I find a post I really like, can I give it more than one rec?

    Or how about whether I can rec my own posts?

    I mean, they are mine to use as I want, aren't they?

    You better check yourself, before you rec yourself.

    Bad idea... Somone might rec a post in my forum, and things in my forum have no place on a list of good posts. This goes for other clans I know of.

    Or, indeed, any place in civilised society.

    Another problem could be, if you quoted someone else and your post was in the rec list, the quote would be there too - maybe not with the other persons consent.

    It doesn't have to be put up on the Recommended list.

    How about a private forum only recommended list, to mirror the public forum ones? For our forum, where we have over 120 threads going, it would enable members to see which posts have been thought to be worth reading by others...

    Also, the 'rec' counter is merely a view to see whether someone else thought that person's comments are worthy - so this could continue to accumulate.

    They would be called Public Forums and not Private Forums if you could read from any one of them. So, again.... bad idea.

    He's not recommending it to anyone.

    He's using the recs the way most mmebers do, as a way to keep score; as a trophy.

    No that's just your clan.
