      Yes it is COMPLETELY voluntary. Except that I have figured out that if I understand correctly you have to "pay" to change your user title. The junior member member senior member under your name. However that is NOT mandatory.

      Ditto.

      Can't we just talk? Why all the complications? Why all the detours, side-tracks, taking away from what we are here for: DISCUSSION?

      I don't like all the games, tricks, complications and things some sites use to take away from discussion. But that's just me (this is not my site, lol). I'm for eliminating all the hijinks - the cash, points, levels, bars, reps.... this is a DISCUSSION forum, let's TALK without all the interfering junk, tricks and games that sidetrack things.

      While some may not prefer the bells and whistles, you do have people who come on forums for more than just discussion. When we were looking over which things to add, we do consider the usage level an addition might receive and we go from there. So far all additions have been received greatly, so we are thankful for that.

      You are able to disable reputation on your account, and I can check to see if the others can be disabled, but don't quote me on it.

      In regards to the forced read notice for this thread, as this was a major addition we made, it is a way of promoting the new addition by directing more attention to the thread. No harm was meant.

      Regarding force read threads...

      We use that on the site I help administrate, and we have found that as long as it is used sparingly, most seem to appreciate, or at least not mind, being directed to an important thread. I thought the use of this feature to announce the CH Shop was appropriate and in line with the spirit of this feature. You get a lot of users who can miss things like that because they may not use the "New Posts" search to keep up with a site...and then they wind up in the dark about important features on a site.

      I know from experience how difficult it can be to administrate a site...it is a fine balancing act many times to try to do what is best for the overall health of the site, while still not aggravating your members too much. But, at the same time, it is good for the members of a site to feel that they can express their feedback concerning new features and know that their concerns carry some weight with the administration.

      It seems to me that those users who are not interested in the CH Shop and the earning of points and purchasing of features can carry on and ignore it, while those who are can utilize the system for their enjoyment.

      agreed, new features are a great addition to this site and as you say many really appreciate them. While I havent seen anything in the shop that I would avail myself of at present I am looking forward to more things being added

      No harm taken. I just gave MY view... I'D like to see staff promoting meaningful discussion rather than the sidetracting games, "bells and whistles" but that's ME.

      IMO, there are a PLETHORA of sites (way too many, in my view) for Christians to play games, etc. - and those sites do this well, with LOTS of people participating. But there are few - precious, precious few - sites where any meaningful discussion takes place.

      i kind of like the idea of rep feature. sort of a motivational tool. the more rep you have, the more you are wanting to be active. those who have negative reps tend to just dissapear. i remember on one forum, i had 257 good reps while someone else had 1345 negative reps
      I try to be positive at all times in this world filled with negatives. Thats what keeps me going. -MS140ukn
