Red Repping

    Can someone tell me why I am being "bombarded (well kind of)" with red reps by some low life schmucks that don't want to reveal their identity or reason and just hide behind their computer monitors. (cowards)

    Three examples of posts I have recently had red reps on with no reason (what you would expect at least if you are meant to learn from your so called mistakes), and anonymous:

    I agree.. this rep thing is not easy. Look at me. Many people give away red reps when they get dumped just to ease the psychological pressure. Don't take it that seriously.

    Edit: I gave you a green to counterstrike hrblcantras red :)

    1. Never make a thread complaining or asking for rep.
    2. Develop a good sense of humor.
    3. Laugh with others but never laugh at others.
    4. Make a fart/monkey/gay joke in general chat area.
    5. be helpful
    6. dont talk/make useless post
    7. Give Green rep to others when they deserve it.
    8. Give respect to The Webmaster
    9. Listen to Hrbl
    10. Try and search all the posts from High rep members, read and follow their footsteps.



    and change you user name quick....


    Only if you dont care about loosing your sig...

    great post The Webmaster.

    By the way I wasn't complaining, just asking, am trying to understand (big mistake obviously) the purpose of this rep system, especially when you get reps (green or red) with no explained reason :) Also I wasn't asking either (but still thanks out to latehorn)

    I got nothing wrong with reps, just when they are pointless with no "explained" reason.

    Like your other points..especially 8!

    I was trying to be nice, a bit cranky in the morning but good advice all the same. A thread started to whine specifically about rep even if you are justified will give you more red rep than what you began with. It is the #1 way to become red, was hoping you'd get the hint and change your post instead of coming back with what you did. For that you deserved red IMO, you can give me red if you wish. Just remember being in the red yours I believe will come up grey :D

    Hi hrblcantra,

    thanks for your post.

    I appreciate your advice..

    I won't be red [or grey] repping you, have no desire or reason to!

    Take care.

    My advice, don't pay too much attention to the reputation. Have fun, be yourself and try to be helpful :)
    Not something I always follow, but try to ;)

    Your rep will turnout as grey if.
    1. You are in red
    2. You have less than 50 posts.

    Then in that case holding up a sign right in front of your nose will do even better.
