    Now, if you'll excuse me, I have beer to drink, and an old friend to catch up with. Cheers.

    Prags and Rooney.

    Enough. You are bickering back and forth; arguing your points (both quite eloquently) but enough's enough.

    I think you both need to get into fight club and "iron it out" or something but you're both kindda polluting the discussion with what appears to be strictly a personal vendetta.

    Although I think you are both tremendous contributors to this site (each in your own way), I wonder if this might not be a good time to take a step back.

    That he's had plenty of time to consider his vendetta, and makes no
    bones about it?

    Guess he really misses his rep points.

    Really? I say it's not cool to flaunt your 23 months against someone's 4, then make a self-deprecating joke about my age, and I get a minus?

    But it's oh so cool to flaunt how many posts you've made, right?

    Still early but 70% of respondents say there's either a little problem or it's a great site.

    So funny and irrelevant that it forced the mods to see a problem developing and change the site to adjust? LMAO, doesn't that show just how funny and pointless this conversation was?

    sooo we got rid of the rep points? what the flying Cuss? That was ONE of the reasons I wanted to come back to this site. Why would you do this? Why has one person's departure changed this site so drastically? and yes, this is a drastic change.

    The system was being abused by one member or one set of members. Go back to about page 7 or 8 of this thread, and read on.

    why didn't everyone else just '+' you? And maybe the mods should have authority to see who's +-ing and -ing each other. If someone is constantly repping someone up or down, then I think that individual should also be prepared to be questioned by the moderator. I would think that's a simple solution.

    The answer these questions is in those last 3-4 pages of conversation on this thread.

    I suggested the same thing that you did, and got the answer I'll pass on to you: it turns out the mods can't see who's repping who, or make any other changes to the system -- it's a computer programming thing that I don't understand, but there you have it.

    Terrible....well I think that's disappointing actually. Hopefully they find a solution to the constant abusing of the rep system and apply it back on the site.

    Who cares about rep points. People in here know well enough who's reputable and who isn't. If rep points are going to cause problems just get rid of them.

    I think it brought a unique element to the site. If anything, it made ppl research their info and have them strive to be a little more respected, resulting in less obnoxious posts. Right now, it seems like we know who's good and who's not. What happens when several newbies come along and start with the dingus approaches? Anyways, I liked the rep point idea, it was a niche. I'll still be here...
