Rep Points?!?!?! I'm Curious!!!

Ok i want to see how people feel about these "Rep Points."

I personally i have mixed feelings about them i think there ok, but the mods and stuff are so quick to give u a negitive rep, but they don't hand out as many good rep points. Well thats my feelings im curious to see what you guys think!

Please no flaming on one another!!! Thanks!!

They give more negative than positive because more people deserve negative rep points. They only give positive rep points for REALLY good posts. So there ya go, I'm fine with it.

Yeah i can see where all of you are coming from! I do have to agree with some bozo, i do feel that most of the time mods like to just look for bad post and then slap on a negitive rep. The only reason i would even care about it is there are a lot of people out there that go by what ur rep is too. Like i have seen people make fun of someone and stuff cuz they have a negitive post. I got my nagitive thing when some dude and i were going at it on a post and i said a couple of choice words i didn't threten anyone and he was saying a lot worse things and i ended up getting the negitive! I also think the mods take sides way to mutch to be honest! They don't just keep it nutural they have to always take a damn side!

O well no big deal!!!!

what are you talking about, when the blacks were slaves to the white man, was that no big deal! they were only takeing sides right (sarcasim). they cant take sides they have to keep it fair and not just throw out a negative

your getting a little to serious now. personally i think i desereve at least one rep point, i just gave advice to the whole first page in the newbie forum 0? no point for me. but if that doesnt deserve one, who cares, i will eventually say something that deserves one without even noticeing, just be your self. dont try to get one, that will get you a negative

Dear Lord, are you DONE yet?

https://www.paintballforum.com/forum/...dom#post861562

I closed the other thread because the discussion was over. We don't abuse the system- maybe it hasn't occurred to you that your posts weren't up to par.

Oh and BTW don't copy and paste posts between threads- that is SPAM. Not to mention you're basically calling us (the staff) out and telling us we're selfish bastards. Sorry to tell you this, some bozo, but many of your posts SUCK and are FLAMES. You deserved all your negative points and THEN some.


Now that I think of it, we've been waaaaay too nice in keeping you around all this time. I told myself that once you posted another flame, you would be gone.


So


See ya. Don't come back. To troll around in some other forum trying to build up your e-reputation.

woah duo, give him another chance, he stopped. that was there for awhile, THEN he made the thread. just give the poor guy another chance. well since he's gone i just want to let everyone know something, ever since his freind died, jake i think it was. he has been really depressed. all he wanted was a little attetion. but you guys really pissed him off so it got worse. so i think it might be our faults that he is like that. im not saying he was a great guy but he definatly was a moron some times. i say give him one more chance and if he pisses the mods off again or anyone else bann him for good.

looking at bad posts is what moderators do...so i dont see how you can complain. We give out + points, but just telling some noob a site to go to on info about how to oil his gun isnt worthy of a point.

If he was looking for attention, an online forum isn't the place. He pissed US off by trying to suck up to the staff with 'useful' posts first. He put information that my little brother could've posted from watching me play, it was utterly ridiculous.

I know it sounds cold-hearted, but I assure you that's the last thing I am. If his friend died, I'm sorry and I didn't mean my actions to inflame the situation. But if he wants attention, he should step out of his house and talk to one of his friends that can help him out.

I know from experience too- my best friend's dad died a year ago and I felt like a bag of scum because I feel I was the primary cause for him losing his dad. I know the whole depression thing, but spamming and flaming on an online forum isn't the way to go by any means. That's unexcuseable.

I'm not giving him a second chance. I got 12 complaints about him (7 in ONE DAY ALONE), far more than we have ever allowed for a user that we end up banning. He deserved his ban by all means.

*sigh* i just dont think he deserved it, im a freind wih him. and barely anyone around here plays PB, i just tried calling him he didnt answer...i e-mailed him. he didnt answer. i dont know. listen duo, im afraid, what if he does something crazy...what if he tries to kill himself, with the state he's in he just might do that...look i know he's an idiot but hes a freind of mine. Duo can i ask what these complaints were? were they flameing complaints. if you even bothered to read his posts he got flamed first, and he isnt a suck up, thats the last thing he is. dont you see what i am getting at, im being helpful but am i being a suck up? no. being helpfull isnt being a suck up.

Duo, your the best mod ive seen in a long time, always makeing good choices, give people chances and warnings...your a great mod, but for once...i think you made a mistake. please read this. and please resnd with your opion

Wow this is way off topic. Umm Gray Fox that is a pretty touching thing man! Gray Fox man ur an awsome friend to have bro and some bozo is lucky! any ways i don't know if some bozo deserved getting the boot, but thats not my call i don't know him. But from how Gray Fox talks about him he sounds like a pretty ok guy! So I don't know where this is going to go i just hope it goes in the right direction!!!!

Now, I'm not saying that some bozo has a clean slate and that he will be unbanned immediately- neither are the case.

-however-

Seeing that some bozo is going through quite a bit at the moment, giving him an outright IP ban definitely would not improve the situation. I know how depression feels and those times were the worst in my life, so I can sympathize.

This is what we're going to do: I will leave him banned (since he DID deserve it, one way or another, because flaming BACK isn't any better than starting a flame). But instead of giving him a perma-ban, I will make the ban last ONE WEEK. That way he doesn't get distracted by something as petty as an online forum when he's got bigger fish to fry for the time being. With this one-week ban, hopefully he'll be able to resolve some things and come back with a cleared mind. That way when he comes back people will be chilled enough to put what he did earlier in the past.

Also, if he needs someone to talk to, tell him he is more than welcome to send me an IM or email me ([email protected]). I'm sure he thinks I hate him for all he's done (and I admit, I didn't like what he did) but I'm too nice for my own good so I don't really hate anyone, much less him. I can relate to what he's going through, I've lost two close friends this past year and it still haunts me to this day, not to mention my best friend's dad. Plus, the things you said have put things into perspective, so to speak, so I can understand how personal issues can cause a person to go berserk.


tl; dr

He will remain banned for one week and then the ban will automatically be lifted. Hopefully by then things will have improved and everyone has cooled off. If he needs a person to talk to he can hit me up anytime.

when my grandfather died this past year you all didnt see me lying about everything, pretending i had guns that i didnt, creating a flame pot whereever i posted. using the death of a friend/loved one as an excuse for beinga douche online is heartless and demeaning to the person he lost.

point is, bozo brought all of this upon himself, he lies, flames, then lies some wmore in ever post of his. if he told me the sky was blue i'd have to doubt him because quite frankly, i dont, and never will believe a word he says

im cool with the one week ban on him, and you know why? hes going to be banned within 3 days of being back. im calling it right now

chrome killer, your such a cold hearted person, its worse to lose a freind then to lose a family member. you may think thats crazy but its true.

and how old are you chrome? if your like 20 or 18 its much easier to take a death seriously, when your young its hard, if you have nothing nice to say then dont say it

im coldhearted becasue i dont take that bull**** excuse that the reason he lied and created flamewars wherever he posted was becasue of the death of a friend?

as i said before, that demeans the very thought of his friend. he must not of cared for him very much if he used his death as an excuse for being gay on an online forum.


and gray fox, dont even reply, im right, and your wrong. live with it
