    but p0rn forums do make money, no?

    I agree, I do not like anonymous reputations.
    Negative ones are often offensive, positive ones are more funny if you know who to thank.

    Admins, thank you for the change. In the long run, taking away the anonymity was the best choice.

    Thank you so much with that change.There were a couple in the N.M. forum that liked to leave crude remarks and neg reps regardless of the post. Now they are exposed.:thumbsup: Good job!

    I've been here long enough to know who to trust and avoid.
    The number of little green squares means nothing to me although I sometimes get a real chuckle when I see totally lame members with 2 rows of green blocks.

    Rep is NOT anonymous on RoadBikeReview forums and it seems to work good over there.

    Stay tuned.

    Well I've definitely had a change of heart on the rep system. IMO it does add value.

    I left mtbr for over 2 years do to all the hell, discontent and lack of moderation I witnessed and experienced first hand on on the
    Front Range forum by peeps that needed to find a life or at least a real job.
    The worst offender seem to have tempered there responses as of late or maybe they just grew up.

    Thanks Gregg for continuing to improve the system.

    Now that neg rep is gone how come I can only see positive rep in my control panel? Seems like all the negative stuff has been sanitized. CONSPIRACY!

    Now that repping is no longer anonymous, the trolls have left the building. The negativity was not only pervasive in the rep system but throughout the forum and many new peeps were put off by this. Not a great thing if you want to promote a sport that as a whole has a lot of cool people participating.

    I did not notice absense of trolls. What I have noticed was a group of rep enthusiasts getting banned for a while or for good.

    I like all the people who trashed on anon negative rep that I noticed had given me anon neg rep-pretty typical of people. Some of this page now.

    yeah, DBs are DBs - in real life they are cowards - probably sagging their jeans and wearing a flat-billed cap w/ a sticker on top

    In my opinion, I would like to see a rating for quality posts. I like to know who has good advise. Marking posts quality instead of rep'ing would do away with the rep battles yet still show us knows what they are talking about.

    So, I am guessing a gray bar pm is a negative rep?

    Neither pos nor neg - the repper has zero rep power - if it's grey and no comment, they were trying to +rep (don't have to leave a comment for pos.) - if there's a comment, infer from what was said to determine intent.

    Thanks for the clarification.
