    You know they are the reason what this site and you, are today.

    ...yeah, if you think about it, after a month or so, everyone would have been filled up & feeling special, thered be little point to a circle of 30 guys repping each other,... the natural progression to this would have then been the spreading of the love....

    all of the contributing members would have been repped up, guys like liquid smoke, dynasty, guino, david, the list goes on & on....

    no one was taking the power of rep in vien as far as I know ... pretty much all of the moderators are popular & would have rose up... I'd bet in 6 months the majority of shining members would have had at least 1 shinny ball .... the love would have spread....sure there may be a few members that are liked less by the majority, & they might not have rose, but in the end that's kinda the point of the rep system in the first place...

    I guess there was potential for oposite abuse too, but if you look & see, I don't thing there were ANY negative reps handed out.. there was no malicious intent, even when the guy stole losts software tittle there was no retaliation...it was discussed, but handled repectfully..... it was all in good clean fun.....





    the love woulda spread man......

    some may play the part of a child at times, but in the end were all adults.... well most anyway...

    Perhaps Zip-Lock doesn't really care if he alienates the 10 rep clubbers. Truthfully, this site doesn't exist because of you guys, and undoubtadly, would survive quite nicely with out you, just as it would with out me. Since the only people who seem to care about the rep system are you ten, it is very likely no one else will leave. Heck, I highly doubt you guys are going anywhere.

    I know I'm not going anywhere because the reps were removed. Hell it was fun while it lasted, would been fun if it was kepts, whatever.
    In my last post I was talking more in general, regarding the site overall, not about the rep system. I also didn't say this site exists just because of us guys, I said it exists because of the senior members which includes you.

    <ot>I do think they finally worked out their software theft/conflict issues... but yeah...</ot>

    No one I know used their 'power' in a wrong or negative way. Most of the folk in the 'club' are very insightful and knowledgeable and do contribute alot to the site... of course there are those that like to play around...

    BULL****

    What would have happened is that the rep clubbers would wield a lot of rep points, and when they found someone they did not like, and neg rep'd them into oblivion. It would matter not how "good" the person was, or how helpfull, or anything. Once the rep ten started it would be over. If for some reason the 10 all wanted to pos rep me, even if I cursed out everyone else on the forum, ****ed em all off, because of the ten, I would have 10 danglies in a couple days.

    The whole thing became very useless

    first of all, were there any negs given out? did you get any? perhaps your right, & had that happened, I could see removing the feature banning the perps whatever, but... perhaps your wrong....

    6 months is a lot of time... no one knows where the rep system would have been in 6 months, I think it was cut short prematurely...

    is it a big deal, no, just an amusing online participation diversion.... I'm sure we'll live either way, but just remember...

    inocent until proven guilty....

    in such a broad community, how could this few amount of members be enough to render the sytem useless.... that's bull**** to me, but I'm not really looking to debate here, just say my piece

    were you afraid

    Except the amount of "members" in the club. I think I had over 30 in my list.

    Ah well, it's wired's fix for the month I guess. Maybe he'll be nicer to the noobs now that the rep system is gone and he can blame it on us.

    C'mon Michael, you need to break down and have some fun around here. Come hang out with us in MT, shoot the ****, get away from all the stupid noobs that get ya all wound up.
