Rep power system vs "like" system

    hello guys. :)
    SEMrush
    I always thought I would add Reputation Power (like bodybuilding.com) to the future forum of my site.
    but recently I registered to digital point forum and felt like "like" system(like digitalpoint.com) is better than a reputation power system. but still little bit confused.
    oh ya and also best answer thingy...

    what are your thoughts guys? their advantages and disadvantages? pros cons?
    and again please write your toughts.

    Thanks

    The reputation system can be abused by virtue of the fact that someone who doesn't care for you, can use it to give you a bad rep that you may not have deserved.
    The like system however is all about consensus. If someone agrees with your opinions then they can offer you a like.
    It really boils down to a negative system versus a positive one. A positive system helps to build a sense of community while a negative one tears it down.

    Nice point! and like system just counts on a single likes right? what i mean is it doesnt matter if you recieve a like from huge amount of like collected guy or a non like collected guy right?

    It all depends, here at DP you require 3 likes from 3 different members in order to give out a like. But all in all a like from *any* established member holds the same value. So everyone is on the same ranking as far as whether or not their likes have any meaning.

    "Like" also is easier to use.
    How about "Best answer" & Like button together?
