    I would think 500,000 negative voting power would still need Boss approval for banishment!

    I don't believe that's true. If it is, I missed that part. Anyhow, should someone have the power to put someone into the ORG based on only one post?

    Yes you can. Once you get to 200 and are in ORG, if you get enough negatives to knock you down below 100 you can be removed from ORG until you build back up to 200.

    If you go into the negatives you can be removed from the forum all together.

    These types of things will be watched closely by the admins (and mods?). They are not going to let one person have the say over another member. For a person to go from 200 plus to a negative number then they REALLY have to be ticking several people off, not just a couple.

    If it gets to a point where people have too much power then I guess it can be addressed then and levels raised as far as the amount of points you get to hand out??

    It is true, if I remember correctly Boss said that once you hit 200 points, you are PERMANENTLY in ORG, and cannot lose membership. Only if someone gets negative 100+ points would he "look into" banning someone, and I'm sure if all of those negative points came on one "ding", he'd take that into consideration. The people that are getting "up there" in power points are not people who abuse the system or their supposed "power". I don't think posters like westofyou, Steel, etc have even handed out a neg.

    As for your second point, we've already covered that. I don't think that will come into play until at least 2007, and then, yes, maybe the system should be modified, or a cap put on "max power points". I would think the "max" should be set somwhere around 25 total points, personally. Would you be ok with that? (not that I have the power to change it, just asking)

    Re: Reputation Points busted?

    The only thing I have wondered about it how someone can register one day and have well over 100 rep points two days later

    And it has happened - with at least three posters.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Re: Reputation Points busted?

    One more thing...regarding post counts determining how many rep points you have to give out. If the board is constantly "pruned" for bandwidth issues and old posts are deleted then post counts will go down. Someone would really have to post ALOT to be able to keep up with the ones deleted.

    Many people lost thousands of posts when some of the old threads in non baseball were removed. That should help to keep it under control a little.

    Sounds like (unfortunately) we need Boss to clarify all of this again for us.

    Every person on this board, theoretically, could vote on the same first post if they liked it enough, and rocket someone straight to the (proverbial) stars on their first day on the board.

    And people are more inclined to positively rate posts they like if the poster who made it has a low Rep... like, say, 10 or something.

    me?

    Just 3... to inane, brow beating, moranic posts (IMO)

    Anyway I'm here to talk about baseball, not rep points or abuse of powers or politics or rabble rousing ... just baseball.

    If anyone wants to fret and moan over points given for talking baseball then have at it.

    But if that's the case I'll have to wonder why the hell they're on Redszone then.

    I asked about that as well. The two that caught my eye were voted on by several different people so I guess they just had really good posts and lots of people liked the posts.

    I have been really watching the dates someone has registered when handing out points. I don't think a week or two's worth of posts really tells much about the person.

    Re: Reputation Points busted?

    Anyway, if you're worried about the power of people with twenty-billion rep points kicking others out of the forums, you must be scared poop-less by the power I and my fellow mods wield.

    And then there's Boss and GIK...

    Somebody's going to give themselves an blood clot.

I would guess 99.9% of those people don't even come close to handing out 5 reps a day. Most are here quite a bit everyday, post a lot, and don't even pay attention to how many points they have or can give out.

    I am on vacation right now. I was gonna do something fun, but I decided it was more important to stay home and work on my rep points.

    Priorities, you know....
