    Currently we can only give positive rep, or report a post if it's really in violation of somethingorother, correct? If that's the case, I think you can sleep easy, that's pretty much impossible to abuse :)

    Except, y'know, giving positive rep to all the admins to curry favour. But what kind of suckup would do that? :idea:

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, or it's just me, but what is the item the represents "add reputation" supposed to look like?

    It looks a little... dirty to me.

    So is it still the case that only mods can give negative rep? If so, would anybody be kind enough to tell me what this was in aid of?

    [​IMG]

    My summary of the convo between me and Tim basically went like this:

    someGuy: *insert random offensive comment*

    otherGuys: *insert strongly worded replies to offensive comment made by someGuy*

    Tim: Stop all this nastiness guys

    Me: Tim, to be fair the guy was trolling for it

    Tim: Maybe I should have made it clearer that everyone should behave, use the report post button if you have a problem

    Me: Fair enough dude, nobody likes the nastiness. I forgot all about the report post button :)

    Then, some 5 hours later a mod feels it necessary to give me a slap on the wrist for "having to have the last word". WTH? The last word? Surely if you finish a conversation (which this was, not a debate or argument) by saying "yeah, good point", then all you are doing is accepting that you got it wrong and that the other guy was right? How does that justify punishment, no matter how trivial? :eyebrow:

    Maybe I'll receive some more negative rep for raising a question about the negative rep I feel I unjustly received? Who knows? :sigh:

    Dunno?! Looked in the admin and I can't see who did it and for what post.

    What about you Rich? Do you feel it was deserved?

    As I say, it certainly wasn't my intention to "have the last word" and if anything, I felt that by posting to acknowledge Tim's response I was showing that I respected his comment and acknowledged that he was indeed correct.

    Surely that is a positive thing, not something to be punished?

    The only thing I can assume is that whoever made the decision maybe interpreted my reply in the wrong way and if that was due to way I worded it then I guess there's not a lot I can do. Other than assure you that my intentions were good

    Thanks Jamie (and Rich) for taking the time to look at this. :thumb:

    My faith in the Bit-Tech "fair-play" crusade is thus restored! :D

    Bumpitty bump.

    Thought I'd just report, in case the evaluation of the Rep system is ongoing. So far my usage has, I fear, been...'deviant'? I got the impression it was intended to reward helpful and constructive comments, but mainly I've noticed myself using it to express amusement at humorous (but silly/pointless) posts. By the law of averages I'm not the only one. I don't know if this could be considered a problem or not.

    What is a problem is that I realised the rep system could be used to send messages anonymously. I confess to using it at least once to send derisive/critical messages, accepting the giving of reputation as a tradeoff for the anonymity.

    As that imageboard demonstrated, anonymity is not healthy. It's corrosive to the integrity of a community. If people realise they can send hostile anonymous messages, with a fairly generous character count and at the negligible price of adding a little rep to the person, I fear the consequences will be dire.

    For this reason, I'd recommend either (1) limiting the character count in the reputation adds to something modest, like 20-30 chars, to limit the degree to which it can become a means of communication (hostile or otherwise) and/or (2) removing the anonymity of reputation, preferably only on reps which include a comment .That way, people could still anonymously give rep, but where they want to include a comment, they know the person will see who they are - which shouldn't be a problem at all if the comment is positive (I've often found myself wishing the person I'm repping could see my identity when I comment, simply because it is a form of communication.) Where the comment is negative, they can't get away with it - and users can contact admins about it if they wish without having to request a search through their rep, simply saying instead "it was <person>, they said <negative thing>".

    I dont think that our 'reputation' is that huge of a deal to be worrying about it really.

    is there a way to see who have you rep, and how much we got for something special? (special I mean from a admin, for lets say, MOTM)

    In a word, no.

    I sign my rep, but that's something I picked up on another forum.

    What I'm wondering is what the different colored boxes mean? Why are some light green and some dark?

    Transparency would be nice :confused:
