MGoPoints - Benefits and Problems?

MGoPoints - Benefits and Problems?

Submitted by imdeng on February 26th, 2010 at 6:24 AM

Hello All MGoFanatics,

When I am not obsessing over Michigan football, I do research on online communities for a living. I have been talking to Brian about studying the MGoPoints system we have here - and I need your help.

I am specifically looking for your perception of how MGoPoints system has changed the behavior of people who visit this blog. What are the positives (less spam?) and what are the negatives (trying to inflate MGoPoints?). What improvements would you like to see in the MGoPoints system? Do you think overall it is worth having a reputation system of this kind.

All comments are welcome. If you wish to send your comments to me privately - please send me an email at [email protected]

Looking forward to your thoughts.

PS> Is this OT?
