    This is great change in REP system bring alot confidence out of me. I am afraid to express my thoughts just for a reason that if people dont agree with me i will RED REps because in the start of my jounery i was RED reped for asking questions because i dont have enought knowledge people banged me with RED Reps.

    I am here to trade and share my opinion but i cant express because i am afraid of RED reps as it will hurt my selling credibility i just keep my self quite and sit in the corner looking at the thread want to share my thoughts but dont have enough courage to post any thing. Even i get RED REPs for giving FREE phplinkdirectory Categories database the thread 5 Star (it is open and running) and still Get Red Reps the comments i get dont send PM to every one and it is by some senoir member as i lost 6 points.

    But now i am happy with this new change it gives alot more confidence and freedom of speach. I would like to thanks Collen Publically for bringing issue
    and giving confidence to people like me, as for them moral dignity and credibility is much more important.

    PS:As English is not my primary language so if i am not able to explain any thing you can ask again.

    Thank you for that reminder soul-healer.

    I agree; I like the new change.

    I am worried that it will restrict red repping only to members with lots of rep to spend, but I think we will be OK.

    The retroactive aspect was improper, from a purely theoretical angle. You don't change the rules of a game in the middle and make the change retroactive. It's bad game theory. But... who cares? It's just a game. :)

    How can the people posting here put so much effort into a few pixels that are meaningless?? I'll say it again... itrader? That's the real "rep" tool that needs discussion.

    If rep bothers you all so much then go and make yourself some green bars in ms paint or photoshop. :rolleyes:

    It's not the green bars that count; it's the green pieces of paper. :)

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Colleen again.


    :D ;)

    This was an enjoyable thread. Great read.

    A question: How come Collens User CP shows so many reps, i thought it only showed last 5 reps recieved for every user???
    Is that 'cause she's hot ???? :p ;)

    Exactly (but maybe not in the way you meant?). It sounds like at least 1 person lost some green pieces of paper to the person who started this thread. If the usage of itrader was encouraged people would be less-likely to end up dealing with people of dubious character.

    No, I don't want to take that bet. I am sure there are those who abused the rep system. I just had issue with you saying:

    "Those saying that there is good reason for giving red rep, chances are they are part of the problem this thread is talking about and are just trying to justify it."

    Because there are plenty of legit reasons for giving out negative rep.

    Do you know how often IamNed was reported? I know that I reported a several of his comments. Someone can be a total dick but it may not be a banable offense which is where the rep system can come in handy.

    It seems I made one huge mistake in the first post of this thread and that was using plural on "school yard bullies". Should have been "school yard bully", as it seems we really only had one big bully. I am basing this on my rep seen here, http://www.mystical-twilight.com/dp-rep.gif, mostly everyone has been in agreement with me here and otherwise.

    I'd like to thank those who understood where I was coming from. ;)

    Thank you. :)

    Nice rep!!! Forget da 'Queen of da Wackos' title, you're da 'Queen of Geting Green'!!! 12 days with no rep, then you get bombed with it!!!!! :D:D

    I like the one where some one tried to give you red and said 'This was worth the -1 rep'...and it didn't even take any rep away from you but only hurt him/her/it!!!! :D:D

    Take a look at the line going down. Notice it doesn't match!!!!
