Some of these guys in the OC have been contributing for quite some time but tire of the free for all that is the 29er forum or beginners forum. Little wonder they don't venture into those places anymore. Then when the curtain is pulled back and the users can see the hypocracy of the admin and some of the supermods they have to cover their ass. I predict long time users will be heading for the exits now, rep was a last gasp effort to keep users here and they screwed that up. When their golden boy mikesee got outed for all to witness they had to put the brakes on it further losing legitamacy.
    Link to the Mikesee debate? If he got banned, it didn't help that his signature was "This place needs an enema" Especially with how he spammed here with every picture he took having a watermark of spam placed prominently advertising his wheel building. I also know a guy he gave a DT Swiss 240S with Flows wheelset to, claiming it was a long term review. That same guy rides the most p*ssy trails around, with the least amount of vertical, and got called out for shuttling a Giant Anthem 29'er up a perfectly rideable hill by MTroy, when he was supposed to be reviewing the wheels. Same guy never said a word about 2 broken nipples on his Mikesee wheels until he was called out and asked to report on it. give someone expensive freebies like a wheel set, and you'll never get a true report, guys on the hind tit never bite the hand that feeds them the freebies... it's when you pay for your own gear with your own hard earned money that you get honest reports.

    Your rep is 101. Have you been drinking again?

    I think 200 points = 1 rep power now.

    Dumb question here…

    Not to get off course on this very informative thread but: I have always wondered about the meaning of the "blue square" chicklet. Every time I have gotten one I have been dumbfounded on if it is good or bad. There is never a comment on it.
    1] Why would you give one
    2] Is it bad or good
    3] How do you give one

    So, is there a difference between reputation and rep power? When you sort the members by reputation, people with less rep power are listed higher in some cases.
    No, YOU don't understand. You're making an ass of yourself for all of eternity.

    It's from people with fewer than 50 posts.

    generally the rule is the same if it is a neutered neg they have to leave a comment. If has no comment it was a positive. but if it had a comment that was positive then your guess is as good as any one elses. But the result is the same it will not effect your rep either way.

    edit throw me a brew eh!

    I read the reviews here. It is how I found the site and why I signed up.

    Confusing to say the least. They must have given a higher value for years membership and posts then downgraded given rep points. Shiggy benefited with a jump from approx 98 to 160.... I'm away till new year so posting from my phone so not searching for exact figures.

    My new way will be searching my friends list and rep them for good posts in other threads or pick up their link from a rep. MTBR you have lost some respect after this farce... it was a robin hood scam, only you took from the little guys.

    Robin Hood? More like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I also heard you can't neg rep a mod or admin.

    I heard Christmas is coming but will be reduced and curved. 2013 is not guaranteed as of yet.

    Well done to the admin for listening to the people, its a new dawn for MTBR....
    Ive sent the odd unsigned neg in the past, so im no saint, but its definitely a better system now.

    Whats every bodies thoughts?
    Here's a (formerly) anonymous Neg rep message I received for this post

    "pathetic O/T butthurt, you never know you might find a personality over there, heres something to whine about, compliments of the O/T forum you think is stupid and want abolished, ENJOY"

    Well a single click of internet stalking on the screen name and SURPRISE, it's none other than the OP of this thread! OOOOOOH the Ironing.

    Thanks Tone's for coming all the way over to the Fatbike forum to prove my point.

    Don't worry, I'm not losing any sleep.

    And actually read the post, I'm not saying that OT should disappear. I'm saying the rep system should go away. Or at least make it so rep and post count can't be inflated by OT posts.
