At first I was like "how'd he know it was me?" but then I saw his name, and I was all "oh the system changed." That's how I found out about the change.

    I really like it. Went back and only had 1 seeable neg rep. Some lurker with 5 rep power, who has had his account for a couple years. No big deal.

    Man, I had 9 earned rep points before some of you hit me up to 30. Now I'm down to 7. Hey, mtbr, I actually earned those other two points for giving members tire advice! Or telling them their bikes were cool. Or for taking their side in the flat vs. clipped argument. Or for writing my noob product review for noobs. Dang.

    Could someone please enlighten me on this via a PM... because rep hoi'ng started in the Nor Cal section with all the homey's and Francois getting an early start with signing their reps and high fiving each other long before the OC forum was created?

    I love how the mods just turned all the time we spent giving reps to each other into zero value... I hope they don't mind giving me my time back after all the money it made for them from their advertisers getting fleeced.

    I remember when Mods were begging us for reviews and they'd give us rep for it. Seems that was OK... but hypocritical bribery.

    Actually, I would value the rep system more if it was only given for things like writing reviews and not high fiving the "popular kids".

    Most of the "reviews" here are laughable, written by noobs for noobs.

    Possibly so, but that is really sad considering the noobs are contributing more effort to make this a better place instead of sneaking around an anonymously negging people then b!tching when they are caught.

    I still say ditch the whole rep system all together but if you must have it, base it only on written reviews and have it where people can rate the reviews but only positively if it is worthy.

    For instance, I write a review. If it is good, you rep it.
    If it is not or flawed, you just skip past it, no points deducted for trying.
    Everyones rep power is equal, none of this where a rep god can shoot you in to rep demigod status.

    This way, the rep system is what it is intended to be which is to show who contributes regularly and in a positive way.

    It really doesn't matter how many points I have as people are visual and even though my rep isn't high, I still have full chiclets so I at least appear good.

    Except that no one reads the reviews because they suck so much. This place is driven by noobs and the advertisers that target noobs. Mike from Bikes Direct was shilling in here for a long time, things like that do nothing for the creadibility of this site. Pinkbike has probably ten times the viewers, why? 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.

    I are we not just like minded people who come here to talk about bikes, joke around and have a little fun showing off what we do on and off the trails? I don't think that it was a popularity contest most of the people here were contributing whether it be bikes showing videos of what they were doing or just having fun with one and another. Just because the powers that be circumcised us doesn't mean we can't continue to do what we do.

    Hey kjlued I gave you rep yesterday when I was flying high. Now my reps are worth a fraction of the weight. LOL

    I have to wait another 24 hours before I can rep anyone again or maybe I'll have to wait longer if its measured in dog years.

    Sorry if I didn't rep you back, I can't rep everyone that reps me because my rep power is weak.

    Hey, I want a new bike. If I build my rep power up, can I trade it in one one or at least get a discount?

    Noob reviews are unreliable at best, and you happen to be replying to one of the many long time contributors that have been offering up solid info so that people like uyou have content to read when you join this site.

    Yes and no and in some ways any review can be reliable or unreliable depending in the needs of the person reading the review.

    Let's face it, the majority of us have very little ability to be objective.

    If you don't believe me, read what 99% of the people here would say if asked about buying a bike from Walmart. I would bet that without even finding out the needs of the buyer, most people would say don't buy them, they are total pieces of sh!t. Well, for most of us, this is true as most the bikes sold there will not hold up to the every day stress we put on them. However, the person who wrote the review, may be in his 60's looking for something to ride on dirt roads 5-10 miles maybe once a week or every other other week and for him, a Walmart bike is great and may be just what the person reading the review is looking for. That being the case there is absolutely nothing wrong with that newbie review.

    Of course to the guy that has been riding and racing 20 years and is bombing down the most difficult trails setting new records on Strava, the review will be crap.

    I know that if I go out and spend $10k on a bike, I am going to get a better bike than if I spent $3k. However, I doubt I would really be able to tell or reap any rewards for spending that extra $7k. Although, I am sure there is a few people here that could.
    That is where a little common sense comes in reading the reviews.
    I know that even though that $200 full suspension walmart bike score about the same amount of chili peppers as the $1k hard tail, there really is no real comparison. However, it doesn't make that $200 bike review wrong, it just means it's intended for a different audience than me.

    Let's face it, the majority of us have very little ability to be objective.

    If you don't believe me, read what 99% of the people here would say if asked about buying a bike from Walmart. I would bet that without even finding out the needs of the buyer, most people would say don't buy them, they are total pieces of sh!t. Well, for most of us, this is true as most the bikes sold there will not hold up to the every day stress we put on them. However, the person who wrote the review, may be in his 60's looking for something to ride on dirt roads 5-10 miles maybe once a week or every other other week and for him, a Walmart bike is great and may be just what the person reading the review is looking for. That being the case there is absolutely nothing wrong with that newbie review.

    Of course to the guy that has been riding and racing 20 years and is bombing down the most difficult trails setting new records on Strava, the review will be crap.

    I know that if I go out and spend $10k on a bike, I am going to get a better bike than if I spent $3k. However, I doubt I would really be able to tell or reap any rewards for spending that extra $7k. Although, I am sure there is a few people here that could.
    That is where a little common sense comes in reading the reviews.
    I know that even though that $200 full suspension walmart bike score about the same amount of chili peppers as the $1k hard tail, there really is no real comparison. However, it doesn't make that $200 bike review wrong, it just means it's intended for a different audience than me.

    if you ask 10 people for an opinion you will get 20 different ones back.

    now let's get back to our regular scheduled program

    I have 2 opinions myself.

    The right one and the wrong one.

    Which one I share depends on my mood.

    When in doubt about the validity of a statement, check the rep power. If it is zero or higher, maintain reservations.

    Ok, I am stuck in the airport and bored, which is why I even clicked on it. (Ok, it was mostly cause it is a Tone's thread). But I am most certainly NOT bored enough to read 16 pages of this shyte!

    Highlights?
    1) anon reppers got outed and is no longer anonymous
    2) our rep all went down, some to single or double digits
    3) our rep then went up again.

    How is this thread still going crazy? A few hours without checking new posts, and this thing grows another 2 pages.
    I don't rep a lot, so got plenty to hand out. Who wants some? Specify good or bad, or you may be surprised.

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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
