    It's that time again, and I'll say right up front I don't want to hear any names or this turn into a pissing contest. If anyone has a problem with another member specifically in regard to user rep, you can PM myself or Jillian with the specifics and one of us will look into it.

    In case some are unaware, I can look up user rep on all members of this board, and read the comments, so it isn't like PMs.

    User rep is a privilege extended by the board as something to make it just a bit more interesting. Some people care about it, some don't. Either way, it is not there to be abused by either continually giving negative rep to someone, or continually giving positive rep to someone.

    This is one of those things where if you aren't abusing it, I'm not controlling it. But, I can and will if I feel it's necessary. Individuals who continually abuse the system can and will have this privilege rescinded.

    I prefer it not come to that.

    Gunny, how does it work when someone receives a bad rep comment? Much to my horror, I received one yesterday. It didn't seem to lower my rep...does that mean I need to get a bunch of good rep comments to counteract it?

    This is from a post in another thread towards the bottom of the first page in this forum:


    To answer your question, rep points only affect your user rep. They otherwise do not affect you as a member either negatively or positively. If you still have questions about it, feel free to ask.

    Ok, I was going to post something, but, then I thought, if you can't say something POSTIVE, keep you mouth closed, and your hands off the keys.:eusa_whistle:

    OK, now that you've explained how rep points are earned (lost), can you explain how rep power is calculated? Just curious.

    I also think that a rep points (or power) to posts ratio would be kind of a cool stat to add if possible.

    Gee, then you should look into my negative reps. Almost all of them came from Jillian, usually with an obnoxious aside about trying to teach me manners or some such thing.

    IIRC, it is based on total number of posts and total rep points. I think every 100 posts you get one point. I don't know how many total rep points increases rep power each time. It is an automatic system.

    Rep points to posts would not really be an indicator of anything. When I first came to this board I think the person with the highest rep power had like 17 points. I toook a long time to amass rep. Currently, you can have one post and get 2000 or so rep points for it if one one the older members gives it.

    Oh ... besides that ... it isn't an option in the program.:lol:

    I will repeat ...

    If you have an issue with another member and what you consider abuse of the rep system, feel free to PM me with the info. It will not be discussed in a public forum.
