Do you guys think blizzard should implement a sort of points system into the forums?
You can vote up or down on people's posts and they accumulate these points over time so they can show how much positive feedback they have given.
I know there are trolls but I think the system would still work well.
edit: Show specifically from what forums the points were accumulated though. This will prevent someone who has spent alot of time in the tanking forums from looking too reputable in the dps forums ext.

It would be abused.
I am sorry find things in your REAL LIFE to boost your egos over. A popularity system, in a game that so many think is somehow a substitute for real life. Would only meet many failures, and griefing.
THIS IS ONLY A VIDEO GAME. Nothing more. If more people treated it as such, the community itself would not be such a cesspool.
When they transitioned to these new forums there was a lot of talk of cleaning them up. Anything that encourages people to behave themselves is a good thing. If you think treating other people with respect or otherwise being helpful is equivalent to showing off your epeen then I do not believe you understand the concept of that term.
That's not how karma works on reddit
You think reddit has an ounce of basic respect?
First, whether or not redditers have respect for one another is irrelevant. Blizzard doesn't have to invite the entire reddit community over to their forums just to implement their own rating system.
Second, I don't particularly care if someone gets "karma" for having a cool transmog set or making a hug-a-whatever thread. Why would that bother me?
The way I envision it, there would be no penalty for low "karma", and really no bonus for high "karma". What I would like to see is something in the forum avatar that denotes a high level of respect from the community.
So if I was a complete jerk to everyone my avatar would look just the way it is now. If there was some other poster that was always helpful and respectful they might have a nice border around their avatar. Just a little incentive for people to think before they post.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Posts containing personal information about other players. This includes physical addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and inappropriate photos and/or videos.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
