    Its not a dumb suggestion, but you have loose cannons when it comes to power as well as everyone who would be trusted.

    A person makes a post, nonoffense and good hearted in nature and just out of spite for past agruements etc..its deleted, closed etc. Realize I am not speaking about anyone in general. However, it happens.

    I've modded a site of 2,500 people or more. I was a "manager" of the community and I knew how short-tempered peoeple were even among friends. Things get said, power gets abused. It happens.

    In reading through the game thread tonight, it doesn't appear to have changed much. I've seen a couple "Jon Coutlangus sucks" posts.

    Can you provide links to each of those posts? I'd like to take a look for myself.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    I couldn't find one that said Stanton sucks, I guess I was mistaken.

    My bad.

    I may be one of the few but I like the changes. It seems to make sense and to be a much better way of regulating the site than the flawed rep system. Granted I didn't have ORG status to lose but I was pretty close. Anyone I appreciate the bold move made by Boss and GIK.

    Yes, I am an idiot. Sorry, misunderstood the conversation. No wonder I'm still in the SunDeck!

    Re: Site Feedback/Questions

    Personally, I prefer the reputation system to the current format. Granted, it had its flaws, but I love that the privilege of posting in The Old Red Guard was decided by every existing member of TORG, as opposed to select individuals (though let it be said that I have nothing against said individuals).

    Instead of what was done, I would have changed the reputation system. Here are a few things I would have considered:

    1. Each person may give reputation points to only one post per day. This way, you must be very selective about who receives your reputation points.

    2. Find a way to award people with a high points-per-post ratio. For example, if I post 100 times per day, there's a good chance some people will like a few of my posts. However, the 95-or-so other posts would just pollute the forums. If there were a way a repuation points-per-post ratio could be factored, I would be much more selective about the posts I make.

    3. This is my most simple idea: Just decrease the value of a reputation point. Either raise the number of points you need to post in The Old Red Guard or decrease the number of reputation points people can give.

    All things said, I think the RedsZone is great, but I do feel it were a little unfair that the changes were made after my donation. I felt like my donation, albeit not huge, was made to help maintain RedsZone--not change it.
