Re: Opinions on RZ changes
The rep system was atrocious and I'm glad to see it abolished. The smooshing and butt kissing to get rep points was nauseating. There were posts said to folks with over 1000 Rep points like "you are my hero" or "I think I have a man crush on you."
I think if we had to have a rep system it should have capped at like 300 pts.
A lot of the folks now out of ORG seem to miss the point of all these changes. The point was to make ORG a more elite gathering. The goal is not like that of a high school diploma, i.e. get everyone in there eventually. So don't base your complaint on "why can't everyone get in". Apparrently the powers that be have meant for it to be a more sparsely populated place than it was before.
And finally, if these changes ruin your day, much less your week, you really need to get a life. This is one of many, many messages boards available on the vast internet. You're still an avid Reds fan. You can still enjoy Reds baseball. But if your primary enjoyment of Reds baseball is internet chatting with people you'll likely never meet, you've got issues...
