    Reputation Points busted?

    Why do we have posters with over 500, some over 600 pts? Are they that much better than us? I don't think so.

    It's a self policing policy. There's really no way to argue with it.

    It's pathetic. The self policing system wasn't design to reward buddies. It was design to judge post fairlly. It has failed.

    would somewhat agree with this feeling. Be careful, cause some of the mods will abuse u for sharing your sentiments or tell you to post elsewhere.

    Than again. It really wasn't a really tactful way to criticize. And I do apologize for that. It was a bit "nasty" and we really should focus into positive criticism. I'm not backing down from the sentiment, but it could of been convey in a more thoughtful manner.

    I must be rubbing off on you.

    It has succeeded enourmously, IMO. Rep points are completely irrelevant anyway. Tey mean absolutely nothing to anyone except those who haven't made into ORG.

    RedBloodedAmerican,bud as long as you are over 200 it really should'nt bother you imo.Maybe they should be a limit of the points you can get like 300 or so that that they would'nt be nobody mad or jelious.


    Don't let it bother you b/c you are over 200 so just have fun.

    Who says it bothers me or makes me jealous?


    There has been allegations in the past of an "in-crowd" mentality. Buddies pushing other point total up is just going to alienate some posters.

    I haven't really been paying attention, until I noticed a few posters with over 500 points today. I just can't see how that is, if people are suppose to be fair.

    Must mean something to some, if the system is abused in such a fashion. Why show a number after you made the cut?
