I think in Japan, young people tend to start "at the top" and if they mess up, their status drops. This always makes me sad when I see a 30 year old busboy over there. The owners of this site will no doubt adjust if there is something unfair for the not-often poster (like me).
Until then, try to hang in - the creme always rises to the top
There's nothing wrong with this board...I actually like it better than the old board with everyone on it. I could care less about "impressing" anybody with my posts. I know I will never pile on the reputation points because, quite frankly, I am hard on the Reds when they are sucking up the NL. And since that is what they are currently doing (with absolutely no signs of that improving this year) I'm just not going to click with some of the "rose-colored glasses" folks on the main board. Now...watch my reputation go down with this post

I agree. (Edit: I agree with this sentence).Originally Posted by Reds/Flyers Fan
It's early, but I'm simply seeing less bickering.
I'm enjoying both boards more than I've enjoyed the single baseball board in a long time.

Amen TC. I agree completely.Originally Posted by TeamCasey
Mods- just something to consider, if a member is in good standing(for a example, 40 reputation points or more)no matter how many posts they have. In a year or two from this point of the change over, they would be considered for posting on Reds talk.

The posts on both boards do seem to be a lot more interesting with the change. I had some doubts about how it would work, but the forum seems to be better than ever.Originally Posted by TeamCasey

My only problem with the system is that it discriminates against the lurker / occasional poster...especially fans of other teams that like to contribute on occasion. Like me. D.GOOCH
I think its the god given right of every baseball fan to complain, whine, and criticise. And if you're a Reds fan and haven't been doing that the last week, there's something wrong with you. But no second guessing. And as I said before, I think the "minor league board " may be more interesting than the "majors".Originally Posted by Reds/Flyers Fan

It would not effect a lurker because they would not be posting anyway, but they can still read all of the forum.Originally Posted by GOOCH
As for an occasional poster...if they only post here and there then they can still post here.
I like the new system.
Although, as hard as I am on my Reds, I'm sure I'll be in the negative numbers in no time.
Plus, like a poster said before me, I've never been a big fan of the "no matter how bad they suck, I still think they are going to the World Series" kind of fan. so I'm thinking that the "minors" might end up being the real "majors."
