    Rep System: Opted back in for a while.
    Ratings:

    I think that it is pretty obvious to anyone that the rep system that we have is open to corruption and abuse !!! To give you some idea of why I sat this let me describe my situation. Over the past two months I have lost approximatly 15,000, rep points at the hands of four people. One poster has neg reped me approximatly 24 times, they have gone so far in their hatred as to go back to some of my posts that were posted before they came on the board to neg rep me, I try to not let it bother me but it is getting old fast. Now this is our board and I think that it is our obligation to come up with some ideas to improve it and offer them to the adminestrators.

    The first idea that comes to my mind is that for all noobs no points should be lost for to first year, still allow neg reps and comments so they can learn but don't take the reps.

    Please come up with your own Ideas and submit them here.

    P.S. If you would like to give me some pos reps to make up for the ones I have lost and am continuing to lose that would be great.

    thanks
    Patrick

    its called peer review..... if someone disagrees with your post.... live with it and stop whining.

    And damn... not only is this a rep whine thread... its a rep whoring one too.


    Pull up your big girl panties and get a life.

    I say enough of control and system domination or crass....CONFORMITY!!~!!!!!! Stop it. Fuck showing up and going along. The rep system is nothing more than a tool on usmb for institutionalized forumers. Most of the rest of us don't need to compete with each other for our fourmness.

    I am pretty sure that a lot of people would vote for me as one of the most obnoxious posters on this forum. Despite this, my reps generally trend up, mostly because I don't whine about neg reps.

    The problem isn't the rep system, it's you.

    As proof I submit the following...this is the first of your posts I have ever read, and I was immediately stricken with the overwhelming urge to neg you...
