rep points ruined this whole forum

back then it used to be fun, around the time when i only had about 50 posts, but now everyone judges us by our points, you get negativs for something that doesnt deserve it, and you get positives if the mods like you. its not fair, heres my thery

i think the whole system sucks, i just got a negative point for makeing a thread that helps newbies, what do i think about mods, i think that they are shelfish bastards who laugh whenever they see a bad post and just throw you a negative, oh and you cant ban me for that, freedom of speech, i didnt threaten anyone, i just stated my opion

GET RID OF THE REP POINTS! IT RUINED THE WHOLE THREAD, oh and people with + points are going to agree with the rep points because they are actully like by some people ex. chrome killa, he has 2 points...and is an established member, i thought you needed six, mods just throw you anything if they like you, anyone else agree about the rep points or the mod thing, absoutly no flameing this is a yes or no question

It might be true that some people get points simply becuase of the fact that mods like them, but I have also seen alot of people that have great information and help alot of people in a lot of ways have high rep points. The system was a good idea, but is not working to full potention. Now i am aware that the mods can not see EVERY good post, I'll give you that, but come on, I know they have to see some of them. I as you can see have positive points, but could go either way on the getting rid of/ keeping rep points, they dont really bother me. They do incurage others to make good informative posts though.

:tdown: the system, i guess you can say inspired, me to make good posts. look at my one in the loader forum. "its bad cause i dont have one and the people who made good posts got one" thats the tl;dr version of yours post. you LIED for the most part of the forum. you leave here around a few months ago with the lie "my friend died while ballin" and you come back with the lie "i have a shocker" or something else. good way to leave/return to a forum. stop crying about the system. if the mods gave awards for having a certian amounts of posts. ie. take a warning away, it would be more effective

Those were all common sence imo, i have also made good posts that the mods dont see whoopedy do, whining never solved anything and making one post about one person who thinks it sucks isnt going to change anything at all. Get a life, its a forum and noone cares if its not perfect. Sorry if i offended you but you gotta admit i am right about most of it.

and i am not trying to flame, just stating the truth

edit- and they CAN ban you for stating your opinion if it contains profanity ,PG-13 rules as stated in the stickys. Im not saying what you said is pushing it im just saying watch your mouth before you do get banned.

some bozo. heres a tip


NOBODY CARES

i dont care about rep points, even if i had positive or negative. if i had negative and i made a good post, then i might get an extra point, or not. but if i did make a good post with negative, then people might think twice about the system. maybe if you stopped whining and decided to make good posts without plagurizing (i will find you if you do......i have once already. look in the barrels and paintballs section....) maybe people would take you seriously?

doubt it. but seriously bozo. just suck it up and move on. dont whine. and with your vast knowledge of PBF and its "good times" im sure you have seen the great posts of our time

i should give you a negative feed back for this.. this is retarded.. ya you really know the motives of the mods.we arent paid to do this..we volunteer our time.. so sorry if we dont read every single post on the forum daily to award some one with a rep point.. if i happen to see some one who deserves it.. i give em one.. if i see some one who doesnt.. i give em a negative one..

so quit complaining. the mods we have now are great.. best weve had in a long time.. so can it.

Bozo.. Come on.. Dude, you ruined your ACTUAL reputation, not just your points. I'm amazed you didnt get more taken away. If anythign you should be THANKFUL that the mods didn't take them away. And don't blame the mods. Moderating a large forum is hard, and you and I can't comprehend how much time they need to put into it.

They have to be totally unbiased. They dont do it becuase they dont like you, or do it because they like me. They do it becuase its their job. Its hard to moderate a forum, so stop talking about how they are doing it becuase they dont like you. Where's your 20,000 member forum? You don't get 30 PMs a day asking how to make a sig or something stupid like that. They have patience.

Bozo, I STRONGLY suggest you make a new name and PM the mods/people who can trace your IP and ask them to keep it secret.. Because you seriously ruined yourself. I forgot you were the one who posted that april fools thing. If we had rep points by then, you'd have gotten -1 from like evry mod and person that could give it. Just leave and either make a new name and lay low, or leave and wait until you thik your mature enough to come back.

How old are you, BTW?

Rep points are alright. Get used to them, there have been 38 threads about this. If they were gonna change they would have after the first five threads.

Where does it say one can not get mad at another person stating their opinion? I don't judge people by their rep points, I don't know about the rest of you. I judge people by what they say in their posts. In your case it would probably be better to judge you by your rep points. Why was it more fun back then? Because of a number under your name it makes it less "fun"?

You have been saying all along you made that thread not to try to gain a rep point, but just to give new players tips. Now you're saying you wanted one all along? Doesn't that contradict this: "i dont belive this, why do you even think i want rep points, its ruined anyone"? Just an observation.

The majority of the people that make these type threads are the ones that have just recently lost a point. "How old are you, BTW" Judging by his posts i would say he is in late late grade school. Maybe 6th or 7th grade.

Cheers.
