    The only flaw in the rep system is that Dirk doesn't get more.

    I riled him up. He's using potty language without censoring it. Maybe next he'll formulate an actual thought.

    This was mildly amusing.

    Oh yeah people have used proxies, VPNs, etc to change IP addresses and come back (I'm sure some of our older posters will not so fondly remember one Lord Sidious), which I always found pretty sad. A lot of times when people go this route they don't realize their posting/writing style and opinions remain the same and they can be easy to pick out a lot.

    I think once you're here for a while you don't really pay attention to rep anymore. I hardly ever rep people. Not that some don't deserve it, I just don't think of it. The only time I really notice is when I go to rep Sally and I get the message I need to spread more. I swear months go by without me giving her rep but I always get the message. Her rep would be much higher if it actually counted every time I hit that button and got that message.

    So, I checked into that as I said I would. Without revealing any poster's exact numbers, not only does the combined amount of rep behind the WZCW Creative team's current lineup equal a number more than 3 times as much as Chrome has.... every single individual member of WZCW's Creative team's current lineup has more rep than Chrome. For what it's worth though if you need further argument to fuel your statement that there are people who have a full rep bar that perhaps shouldn't, 290 posters have the full rep bar. You can see different little comments though when you move the mouse over the rep bar. The higher the poster's rep score the "better" that little comment will be. It changes every 2,000 points or so.

    Geez, Sally, who didn't give you some rep while I was away?

    Didn't what we have mean anything to you!?!?!?!

    It's a fucking wrestling forum.

    Once your rep gets past a certain point where one negative rep can't sink your bar into red it becomes meaningless.

    Thats my view point, but I remember when KB was justing dishing rep out left and right to get people to vote for him in the tournament alot of people started bitching about their place in the all-time leaderboard being taken from them and having a sook. If rep meant anything KB wouldnt have been giving it out like that.

    I only use the rep system to figure out who is on their way to prison, if you're in the red there is a good chance you will be heading that way

    You should have been here through MSNGate, and also when the rep rules got changed, as far as how green and red's value were determined.

    Rep really only matters if someone's got hundreds upon hundreds of posts and shit all rep. You get enough rep from non spam just by not dying mid post that you just end up obtaining bars, so it gives me the presumption that the post will be rather meh if that's the case.

    The real purpose of rep is that once you reach a certain number, you gain access to the super secret elite member moon base section of the forum.

    But you didn't hear it from me.

    Ah shucks, you guys. ;)

    I like giving rep to show I appreciate good posts.

    And I like receiving rep too, and wish it still was displayed on each post so I could lord it over people who have less than me.
