Put differently, if 100% of forumites voted for the indifferent option, what would RPM need to do? The most constructive feedback in this case is either yes or no.
I voted no last time and now.
If you really want to keep the system, do what James did at mygaming. Make the positive/negative rep move by 1 point only for everyone. Not based on how much rep you have or how many posts you have (which is how the current rep system works I believe)
If a substantial number of people are indifferent and they vote "yes" or "no" depending on their mood at the time, it could skew the results, impacting the validity of the outcome and potentially negatively influence what would otherwise have been the majority.
Now, you might ask, "Why don't those who are indifferent simply not vote?" Simple: we all want to have our say, even if that isn't an opinion we completely agree with.
So you might actually be surprised to find that "indifference" is more constructive than you'd assumed. Or not.
Thanks, ChilliGirl. I found it earlier. I'd rather have avatars than a dark theme. But I preferred the dark theme... Everything is so... confusing now
Why not just have a sticky thread titled "Good Posts that you may have missed" or something similar, whereby members can paste interesting posts with links to the thread from which that post has been copied.

Nay. Worst thing since e-trolling.
