    LOL!! You've made 4,252 down here. If Shawn prunes the Off topic post count, you'll have a measly... 26 posts. Rumor has it that he will be messing with the post count. You better hope he only makes posts stop counting down here, with out mass pruning the post count!!! :D

    I just noticed the drop in greenees and started to freak out. Then I found this thread and saw how drastic some of the changes are. I'm actually ahead of Mella now. I sure didn't see that coming :eek:

    I think this is a very good thing and it really makes the rep system very useful now and I applaud Shawn for making it happen.

    Still the best Fourm on the net :D

    Good job shawn.

    Might I suggest, doing something similar with post counts? Dont let the posts in the BS forums count toward post count and credit rep of those who post more count for more? meaning making the quality topic posters stronger in rep and post count.

    Another suggestion, make a page for the homepage links (as drawn from the user profile or signature) of the top 50 rep users - a page designed to have strong pr, so people migt actually aspire to get there and post more qulaity topics.

    :)

    Working on something regarding post counts that (if it works out) will be a good compromise and make everyone happy.

    I'm gonna nix the "free links" if you do something idea though. :)

    LOL - my only thought was to actually have a reason to earn good rep. Something to work for.

    Personally, I don't care if someone has high or low rep. :) Plus, don't you think there was enough rep whoring going on *without* giving people a "prize" for doing it? ;)

    absolutely I do - but youve made changes so quality posting means something. So the rep whoring should mostly be over. I did say mostly.

    I wouldn't mind (of course) - but I doubt it'd help the whoring...

    We may even start to see pimps if a prize is offered...

    That could be fun.

    I don't want to stir anger in what may be commonly known as the master of the universe but I didn't really understand that sentence. What did you mean?{cowers into the corner}

    Probably won't just let it stay as is and see how things go. :D

    So, for some one with 4,278 posts, with only 26 of those being made out of the Chat area, what will the post count look like after the change??! :D

    My rep points halved ( 301 -> 151 ) does that mean I am like a normal human being: hanging around in GC half the time, and being serious the other half?

    I'd like to see the person giving the rep being named. vBulletin allows this and it would solve alot of problems. I don't mind being given anonymous green or red but there has been suspicion that some people are giving other people's names on rep and that is very concerning.
