I have something to say about the options for reputation on a post.

Here are the 5 options:
Agree
Informational
Funny
Friendly
Good Point

I think these are good, but I think that there is some other things that should replace some of these.
Agree is fine, keep it
Informational is like a mix between Good Point and Helpful. I think that Good Point and Informational should be replaced with "Helpful Information", or just keep informational and rename Good Point, "Helpful".
Funny is fine
I don't think friendly is a great option to use, I would get rid of it

Lastly, these buttons should be on the same line as the Quote, sharing, and report buttons to make this more streamlined.

I agree with this.

Maybe PMing a mod would be more appropriate than making a thread about it :P

Personally I' not sure what the "friendly" option is there for - if the user makes a good point, is informative or says something I agree with, there are specific options for that; but on what occasion does one completely miss all those marks, isn't funny, but still comes off as "friendly" on a tech forum? I'm hardly going to comment on someone's hairstyle here...

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Welcome to the forums, I would guess. Or nice rig in a build log.

Maybe the Friendly button might as well be a "Like" button.

I made about the same remark about this earlier.

Most everything else that isn't "agree" could easily be replaced with "agree". I don't see myself using anything but agree really.

Good point is one that I can say is mostly my request. Its intended to be more neutral than what Agree would be.

I agree with Friendly. It needs change to something else. Now its conflicting with both Funny and Good Point in a way.

Yeah, I guess.

I think friendly is good. These are no longer just arbitrary meaningless internet points, I think the idea is it can give you an idea what a user is like quite easily. If they've got lots of informative points, they probably know their stuff, if they've got lots of funny points, they're probably a bit of a joker and what they say should be considered sarcastic until proven otherwise :P, if they've got lots of a I agree points or Good Point points, they're probably on the Blue-green team :P, or if they've got loads of friendly points, they're just a nice person

Your hair looks great.

 

On a more serious note, I "agree" (see what I did there) that friendly is somewhat pointless as it should be a foregone conclusion that everyone is friendly(ish) and respectful per the CoC.

 

"Helpful" would be very fitting, and does fill the gap between informative and good point.
