Hi, well its more of a question to mods i guess then anything else. As so far i have resieved two negative rep points to my name. But looking at the posts to which i have been marked on they are perfectly fine.

While im not a whinny person at all i just dont see why im getting these negative marks and its affecting my rep which people will judge me on when the forum picks up. And i work very hard to always have strong fair judgements and always act in the best intrests of the forum.

If you are going to leave me bad rep however please atleast give me a reason why instead of leaving it blank also. As that is no help to anyone.

Maybe someone did it on mistake? There are many new users that might not know how things work. Tho just one question .... did they had blue mark instead of green ?=)
And dont worry about rep =), we know who you are, what you do and respect that.

The rep system isnt too great, people are too willing to give bad rep (often for statements which they disagree with, such as in your case)

Also in the cases where a good point is made, good rep is not given, it is expected that we respect each other and are friendly (Also, human nature is that we are lazy, thus we will not give feedback generally unless it is exceptionally good or bad, we relish in giving bad feedback).

Therefore the rep system is flawed, as are all rep systems. Many are aware of this, and even more just ignore the system altogether. Rep doesnt really matter to be fair

The rep system has already been discussed a lot, in depth. And besides, did the two little pips hurt you a lot? Maybe they did, but most of the members think highly of you I think [I think].

Does the opinion of two people really matter that much?
Most likely they've been members of this site from since the beginning, went AFK till now and now suddenly they seem to care about it so much, that they'r giving negative rep to people they don't like.

So, no biggie.:)

And it begins!
Don't take too much notice of the rep system, it's original intention was to help new people (though these ramifications were inevitably going to percolate into the current members).
Anyway, as you've seen we all respect you (and each other, so no need for any more of these threads) :)

Yeah don't worry. we all respect you. Hey I'm the one who almost got banned for my username. You haven't given a reason not to. This is like the most friendly forum that I have seen.

I've only given it once simply because I generally don't notice it's there. Bu the same token i've only gotten it once, it's just not something that should be a focus, take it or leave it. Think of it more as a little quirk you can have fun with or ignore.

True i guess. Just shame some people arent using it correctly. Still i guess i should be happy that it is still positive. And not like one bip or minus (if that can happen?)

Considering all of one person has negative rep, I don't see how this is the case. It is a logical fallacy to suggest there's a problem, when there's nothing wrong. He may not have deserved to have some taken away or some such, but he didn't go negative and he's still above most members.

I don't think anyone who's regulary active uses it tbh. :)

Indeed, you are correct. There is no current problem, sorry if I seemed to be saying there is. I was just pointing out that it could lead to a problem. And yes, no-one is negative rep other than that one... It must be so hard to achieve negative too lol :)
