Has everyone been down repped or is it just me?

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Been busy for a while and was distracted by other facets of life. Signed in today was reading some of the posts to see if anything major or interesting has happened and not much has changed as I expected (no offence). So it seems no harm there in being temporarily gone.

Now as I was reading some of the posts and a reply to my "Everything is Assumed" thread I noticed I had been down rep to -6 so I checked the Binary Revolution forum index page where it has a list of where you were down repped and which it was in like each thread over a long past with no replies as to why...I in some ways don't care but was wondering has another spam bot got lose or some dumb-ass, or did I make a thread that offended some community and they say it and one of them joined and down repped me for that. Anyway I was also wondering if this had happened to anyone else as well.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Okay WTF, perfect example directly above. This one had a comment though it being "whining about his rep," I was commenting on the fact some dickhead is going around down repping every thread I've made. Oh well, might as well change my signature to having something about asking to be down repped and see what happens from there =P...

Now there is another comment -.- "haha.. I'll go through and re-rep you when ..."

Too bad it doesn't tell you who is up/down repping you, I wonder if StankDawg has that information because this is ticking me off that someone isn't leaving a reason.

Oh. I hadn't noticed the buttons to rep folks before. Don't think too much of it, it's a number on an internet forum.

yea it looks like i got hit with a bunch of negative rep as well...

not really sure why... the person also did not comment on why they gave me the neg rep...

probably should not be permitted to rep someone until you have a certain post count, as i do not think someone who usually is on here would just go around giving people neg rep...

"boo fucking hoo. deal with your rep like a man"

If you're are so manly say openly who you are. Hmm, go on, are you scared of something?

Yeah a post count limit needs to be implemented or something to stop spammers and twits from going around fucking shit up for the sake of it.

Yes it is just a number on an internet forum but one that isn't normally abused by spammers, idiots, and others of the like.

Will up rep you to fix things out.

I upped you one as well earlier, but i think that people trading up reps to try to equalize the damage caused by someone who is either bored, or just an asshole who goes around down repping just as equally takes away from the effectiveness of the rep system. and up or down rep is not one that i usually give out easily, and seeing the low numbers of most other people on this forum i do not think that others go around repping people with out feeling strongly towards or against the post that they are repping, so up until this point the rep system did have some meaning on this form IMO where i could get an idea on where someone stands within ideas and opinions of the binrev community as a whole based on their rep numbers... but now if someone is just gaming the system to down rep as may posts or users as possible and people are then trying to up rep people to compensate for neg rep that someone else gave, it all becomes a game, and the rep system becomes totally useless...

This rep you speak of.... Are there negatives from bad rep?

People will shake their heads at you. Enough bad rep and they'll do a double-take when they notice, and then shake their heads at you.

Exactly it ruins the purpose of the rep system, making it pointless, before it has some meaning and was somewhat trustworthy.

I got down repped one.

Weird.

I have a suspicion on who it might be, and also that it isn't who I think it is but they just find it amusing.

Not yet just ruins a system that worked well in the past, otherwise we might as well all down rep each other as much as possible and make the system entirely pointless. See what Stankdawg thinks of that when his forum is completely fucked over.

People will shake their heads at you. Enough bad rep and they'll do a double-take when they notice, and then shake their heads at you.

Obviously you don't understand it actually had some purpose to it and has been used and has fulfilled its purpose for a very long time. No one as far as I remember fucked with it in the past because "oh that sounds like a fun thing to do".

Oh well always find people who like causing chaos and problems. Even if it is not really worth the time or effort.

And thanks guys for the positive rep you can stop there ha.
