I don't disagree that there are some people whose contributions are... debatable. But regardless of that, they are part of the community, and some are part of the core of the community.You say that like it's a bad thing.
Be realistic, that's not going to happen.
Change is usually good. Drastic change rarely is.If things stayed the same, there would be no need for change. The world is changing and people are changing with it. If TPU wants to stay a welcoming online community it must modify itself to adapt to the changing times.
Not looking for accountability, looking for transparency so I can understand what and why has prompted this sudden drastic change. Understanding leads to dialog and dialog leads to better solutions.That statement implies you think TPU staff are accountable to us forum users. They are not. We are guests who do not own this site, nor the forums that are a part of it. What does happen is they ask for our insights. They take on board the ideas they have and sometimes ideas we offer, but only if it seems useful. They experiment with things like this rating system. It's a work in progress. Voicing a concern, a perspective, some experiences, etc, in a constructive way is far more useful than just blasting them with negativity.
As for negativity... if that is your perception of what I consider constructive criticism, then we'll have to agree to disagree.
