I just noticed that today I ran out of both Positive and negative voting on posts...

Maybe we need more, or maybe today has been too crazy. I don't see the point of limits really, but just my two cents.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I think the point of limits is so that people can't hound a person and give every one of their posts a + or - just to boost or lower their rating. People have done so in the past.

It starts all sorts of unnecessary nastiness.

And yes, today was crazy.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Hey, I would vote you up for this too. No excuse for getting that wrong. Unfortunately I have run out of positive votes for the day...

I think that maybe we should have more, or there is a better system set up.

I took care of that for you. I agree with Karen, there needs to be some sort of limit because the abusers would fully take advantage, which is what always ruins things for those of us that can actually act mature and make logical decisions.

It's 1:10 a.m. and I'm out of + and - posts for the day. I'll have to catch everyone tomorrow... and the next day... and the next day...

They need "circuit breakers" in stock market terminology. It would prevent one post from destroying a person's rep. Maybe display whatever people vote, but limit up or down by 10 in actual effect.

I don't see the big deal. If you run out of negs, and it's such a big deal you have to neg it, just bookmark the post and wait the next day to neg it?

Truthfully I run into moronic posts most of the time in GD, and unfortunately I'd spend all day negging if it mattered that much.

If you really, really, really feel that a post deserved a + and you're out, maybe you could PM the person with a happygram. I'd think someone would be just as pleased to find out your positive feedback as they would to get a +.

Or you could always applaud them in your reply if you have something worthwhile to add.

I don't think I've ever used a + or - vote.

Please feel free to negative this post if you don't agree with giving + or - votes

There are some threads that I can never keep up with it because of all the horrible things said. I really only neg for extremely dumb comments, unfairly negative remarks, or when the person is being a prick. Nothing upsets me more than when jerks have "good reputations."

More of a real world problem that I have problems dealing with so I go on message boards. :D

Or maybe I am just upset that some people get +1 for a sentence trashing Osgood while I can write two pages on the merits of CBA idiosyncrasies with pride and get a random negative...

Any sentence trashing Ozzie deserves a -10 :lol:

As for your dissertation on the CBA, I might give that a plus if it helped me learn something about it but I'm really not ready to get into those details just yet. :P
