Affecting user's reputation - Who should and shouldnt?

    I am pretty much gutted that some moderators or users with greater alternating power abuse their rights. I have recently made a post which was supposed to be in the General Marketing forum but posted it in the Adsense forum by mistake. Anybody heard of that - To Err Is Humane! ? Well maybe not the person who decided to remove 4 reputation points from my profile. Okay there are spammers all over the place and we need to keep the forum clean and categorised. But how do you justify taking away 4 points for entering a thread in the wrong forum. Should the person not need to have a look at my previous 145 posts??? Were they not in the right forum??? How abt the quality of the posts? Like everybody i'm here to learn and help. My threads, posts and replies prove it all. So can somebody explain to me why 4 points decrease in my reputation should be justified?

    Here's the thread that i am referring to:

    I don't think it's just you. Maybe they are trying out some new rep system again. I went from 22 points to now -3 and haven't given or received and points in months.

    There is no need to start any of these type threads when you get a infractions or a bad rep,
    If you think that the mod gave you something wrong try to talk to them via PM's :(

    Depends on the posts you made

    Well I don't post much. I see nothing on my Cpanel or PM box about anything. Am I supposed to be psychic or something ?

    Your approach to the matter is simply baseless. ;) Do you think that the mods here abuse their right? You must be joking.

    Complaining about reps and infractions is not the best idea. :eek:

    Baseless?? I dont think so! Before i didnt think the mods abuse their rights but what has happened changed my mind. C'mon i've shown with evidence that i've got decent behaviour on this forum. Do you really think that taking away 4 points from my rep is fair? Please justify yourself.

    I have nothing to justify. Do you think you should start a new thread everytime you get a negetaive rep? :eek:

    Many members here get negative reps on daily basis, should we all start new threads everytime? :confused:

    I hope fryman posts his famous picture soon. :D :D

    That's what always happens when you fight for a good cause unfortunately. But my question is still unanswered.

    Well fryman loses his reps for all good deeds he does,
    We all save our reps to get mroe greens and fryman directly REDS all the scammers , idiots in the forums to make it Spam free.
    I would say we should feel sorry for him.

    Why are you assuming its a Mod? I think all the Mods are at the maximum of 10 points as far as giving rep goes.

    Its a lot more reasonable that the person that reported your thread was the one that gave you a red.

    Anyways, are you implying that all reps given should be reviewed by someone before being applied?

    *Edit - I had said not to worry about it because it takes a whole lot more then 4 to put you near the red but it seems this thread has pushed you over

    Im pretty sure there is no such thing as 4 infraction points for a single thread (I know there is 1 and 10)...Perhaps you got an infraction on 4 seperate threads:confused:

    No you shudnt start a new thread everytime you get -ve rep. I've had -ve rep in the past and i never said anything because it was fair then. But now it isnt. Should i just accept everything? No! This should be a fair forum.

    It's such a shame because nobody could justify the unrightful act of this mod here. And because there exist this brotherhood between mods, they would definitely protect each other.

    Even funnier is Maldives gave me red rep. Why? Because he couldnt care less. When mods are short of words, what do they do? Decrease reputation points, so simple isnt it?

    The whole point of this thread was to get some explanation and justification for what i believed was unfair. But nobody could justify because it was wrong in the first place. Had it been just 1 rep down, i wouldnt care but 4 was too much to let go. Yeh now i'm even worse than before but i've managed to prove that mods dont do any good here.

    Fryman - What did you say? Ah jeez not this shit again! To me, it's another shit you havent been able to solve.

    I repeat, Who says it was a Mod? :rolleyes: (Especially since all the Mods should have taken 10 points, not 4)
