Hard but fair, Ocean, there are a few folk that only join to sell their spare kit, i reckon that Leslie is pointing at that.

but what about people that arent? Plus not everybody gives rep points, it sucks, i've helped out a few nubies and not so nubies on different stuff and nobody gives rep, so it would look like all us innocent posters would look criminal:biggrin:

You guys take the Rep Bar to serious:)

I will probable be shot for saying this, but to me some of the rep bars don't match the knowledge. If you have a good memory and quick on the post you can make it look like you know more than you do.
thanks thailon for clearing that up:thumbup:

thank you thalion, for hitting target yet again:)
I think this rep bar is taken a little seriously, and while i should imagine the little red burron is irratating Ocean I always smile a little when i see you have one:) nothing nasty i often wonder what u had done. But i dont bother asking as i am not actually that concerned. Looseing a tube anenome into a seio concerns me more than who helps lots.

if it was who helps lots Warr would have millions of points.

i think MASA is a little more about reefing than it is about green dots:)

BUT, Ocean, i do think its brilliant that a younge fella like yourself likes to know how things work and what the background is into polotics and the like, lets you keep an open mind and thats a strong characteristic:)

i do like some of your suggestions though:)

At least you honest about it:p Does that mean we can take some rep points away from you.:whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling:

Don't worry we will add some more for being honest.:lol::lol:
No prob, it is nice to be recognized every now and then, but if that was my motivation for posting I would have 6000 less posts :whistling:

HI, have to agree with Thalion and Cybervic! In most cases they are a closer representation of how willing you are to share your limited knowledge rather than how knowledgeable you are! That said, there are a few members(and mods) that can proudly say that every one of them was deserved and is a true representation of their knowledge and experience, here is a :peroni: to you guys!!

How about instead of members adding to each other's rep points, you report a post, using the red triangle, then allow the admin team to judge on whether or not the post deserves rep, and how much rep should be added? that will bring a certain amount of formality to the system and make it far more useful to the membership.

Ok folks, have added a poll to this thread. Please do vote. (I see quite a number of people have read this thread). Also note it is multiple choice if you're a little undecided.
