    Mtbr went full retard... Its been going downhill for me ever since they started messing about with the forums. When they split some up, added some, whatever else... The whole rep thing is a fiasco, they should just turn it off, it was a better more honest place without it. But now they keep screwing around ? The site sucks anymore, its glitchy, and full of spam, did I mention spam? Its a mess, and I really hope they figure it out....

    wyatt79m,

    We "all" lost rep and those who really deserved it lost also. Mine went from 45 to 15. Rep will be less important now back to sharing pics, rides, and threads!

    On another note the mods work very hard behind the scenes to keep spam off the boards, but spam is a bad tasting fellow, who hides in dark places, kinda like that pile of dogs88t you don't see till you have all ready stepped in it then......... it's too late......... SQUISH!.

    Merry Squishmas all...

    So what are the numbers ACTUALLY based on now?

    The way the rep system SHOULD have been done all along is a) anonymously and b) threads in OC don't count towards rep.

    That way, you KNOW that the rep someone has is based on their posts in the ACTUAL forums on the site.

    somebody point me to a rep giving circle. I haven't seen one yet. Just a lot of questions like What, Who, How, Why, So. I haven't seen one thread entitled "Rep giving Circle".

    I call shenanigans.

    That is incorrect, the folks in the Northern California Forum were rep whoring long before it became fashionable in the OC or in The Recycle Bin.

    Francois and his buddies were the Messiahs or Rep Ho'dum way before the OC was created.... Lead by example or STFU, ya know?

    Why all the O/C hate? We are people too. We have feelings. Don't be mean.

    Anyways,

    I think people need to use real names instead of fake ID's to receive or give rep. Lets get rid of all the anonymity. If we want to get real, then lets get real.


    How cool would that be?

    Here is my take:
    The powers that be have been hearing complaints about the rep whoring for a year now. They change the rules with hopes that would fix the issues, but we all still came out on top. Since that defeated the point of the change and everyone felt slighted with the conversion from francs to euros, they had to change it once again. We still came out on top so I suspect they will throw in the towel soon.

    I don't know what issues could be with rep here in O/C. All the rep was done within the guidelines. Every time I send a rep I always got the window saying that If I'm lucky I'll get a rep back. I always returned a rep as a form of thanks. Nobody here on O/C kept noobs from posting here and I always pos repped a noob and welcome them to O/C. It's not like the Lounge in RBR. Talk about a closed elitist forum.

    Actually, that number is not your Rep, but your Rep Power.

    The chicklets (and the rep points shown on the My Account page) are your Rep, which did not change.

    I quit posting in the Lounge for the same reason. I got the "you're weird" vibe after some posts got taken out of context. It never got any better in there so now I pretty much stick to the cycling sections of that site.

    Rep points are like the posted speed limit on freeways... insignificant if they are not enforced... and in the beginning, Francois and mods were not enforcing frivilous rep they were receiving for reciprocity of like rep in the Nor Cal section with the buddies they rode with on a regular basis locally.

    So, in essence, the system was broken from day 1 by the people in power.

    I don't think Francois adjusted his own rep power downwards, either, just ours.

    The Rep (Power) can not be reset for a single user. fc's stayed high because of the length of his membership and number of posts (as did mine).

    unless im misreading what i see in vb control panel, rep CAN be set, or reset. im looking at a vb 4.2 control panel though, this old forum might be different.

    nevertheless, y'all let the rep beast loose, and reigning it in is gonna be a b!tch.
