The Crosby Sucks chant doesn't seem as classless after that temper tantrum.

I'd like everyone to remember that Carman is purposely trolling in order to get a rise out of you. Ignore him.

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

-114 is completely dumbfounding. But it can't be just one poster. Everyone has a limited amount of rep votes for each day. So it's definitely at least 4-5 posters, if not more. Getting into any heated debates lately or anything?

Nope. There have been moments in the past obviously being that I've been a member on here for a while but definitely not lately. Even if there were it'd probably be with people who could care less about the rating or rep thing that badly either.

Some may not like me, that's fine, doesn't bother me at all. Not looking for acceptance or a fan club. I am who I am and probably not much on here will change that, nor will I change people on here myself in all likelihood. I don't have personal vendettas against anybody here nor would have much of a worthwhile reason to have one, especially when it comes to rating somebody in an Internet forum.

Your guess is as good as mine is to what I might have done recently or over a lengthy period to warrant this, or over a lengthy period, because I don't have any grudges with people and nobody that I can think of has any beef with me to where I think I'm being stalked obsessively or where I should tell somebody to just leave me alone. If this is a revenge factor towards me for somebody or some people, knock yourself out I guess if it makes you sleep easier at night. It's pretty embarassing though.

Wow, a -114 rating for myself presently. :D

Seriously, I'm not all that special. Somebody honestly really needs to find better use of their time instead of just marking and spamming people's reputations on here up and down a bajillion points a day.

I'll restate like on the previous page, I really don't care about my own status/rep thingy on here, it's just pretty pitiful and humorous the attention somebody is giving me regarding it. More of me being curious.

Are there different filters or rules you can set on the reputation level if it is kept, or is this the best way the Web site environment works as it is presently laid out Matt? Because I wouldn't be too shocked if every now and then you're just going to have members who just don't like others (or overly like some people perhaps), and want to spam somebody's rep level to absurd numbers.

It's happened to me two days in a row now. And I personally don't care and am not crying about it in terms of bad reputation, I think it could actually be a fun feature if used better/not spammed, just something else possibly worth considering whenever you get close to wrapping the Web site up.

EDIT: To further and quickly add after I skimmed a few threads I typically go in most days being naturally curious, it's sad when you are the only one getting - rep posts, or reputation posts of any kind, in the Water Cooler when there is no other activity in there regarding the reputation status, either + or -. Random threads in the water cooler that have pretty much nothing to do with anything and are about as unharmful and non-offensive to people as it can get. There's no reason to really use the reputation feature in those threads over and over again since those threads aren't offending or don't have much to do with hockey talk typically.

Please don't feel you have to rush anything. We ALL can wait until you have the time to work on everything. No one here is going to drop dead if the new skin isn't ready or the new wallpaper isn't done, and frankly it's insulting to be so demanding to someone you don't know, for something you don't pay for. Just my $0.02.

Thanks, Jedi. For what it's worth, site Boosters have been using the new skin (in it's work-in-progress state) as an option since last night. It'll be released soon -- the plan is sometime tonight.

As for the Reputation system, I changed the allowances for some member groups. (And yes, I can limit the daily allowances for both positive and negative rep by member group.)

Anyone know if Matt is working on this red&white red wing theme and the march wallpaper.. heard a bird twitter that it was suppose to be done the weekend that was but...

I know. It's sooooo inconvenient for us that he has to have a full time job, and a family that he wants to spend time with, and a laptop that's twice been in for repairs, and having to solve issues where members were unable to sign in, and that he's working on implementing changes on a newer version of a forum that might just be taking him as much time to get used to as us...

I mean, doesn't he know that we're dealing with *gasp* Green and Blue here? And what of our poor outdated wallpapers?! Oh the horror...

Patience, young Padawan. Good things come to those who wait.

I don't think its gonna work. I haven't posted since yesterday afternoon, and I somehow went from a +1 to a -22. :lol:

Mindfly must be seeking out old posts just to put a negative on them. :P He and I don't always see eye-to-eye.


QFT. When you think about it, there's plenty of people here that will downgrade a post simply because they're debating with you and don't agree with what you're saying. If people use this feature properly, it could be really nice.

Ya think? I just checked my profile and it's at nearly -70. Now am I crying about that or sending out a campaign to get + reps? No. I could really care less about reputation or status on here, and I'm not going to rate people's rep on here with the +/- thingy. Doesn't really matter to me, you are who you are and my rating isn't going to change that. I just find it funny, and a bit sad, that I am that low and am garnering so much attention. I'm all for a playful joke or ribbing here and there and that's where the rep thingy can be a bit of fun, but come on, -70 in a matter of a day? You have to be an absolute d**khead to do that, and I know I'm not that kinda person 24-7. The only way it got to that is somebody/some people having too much fun or for whatever reason just not liking me or having a personal vendetta. Do you really care that badly about reputation or putting somebody down? You really think this will make you that much cooler or accepted? Are you really this pitiful?

Whoa, your reputation is already worse than Mindfly's :clap:

Looks like posters are just going through and voting down every single post of people they don't like. Ah well... definitely an imperfect system (it works best with how Slashdot does it - a revolving, random group of "karma police"), but it might come in handy at some point to hide posts below a certain threshold. It also encourages [good] posting and could dissuade posts like "Holmstrom sucks!!!"

I like it, and bet we'll start to see some genuine reputation whores real soon.
Just adds another entertaining aspect to the forum, and can easily be ignored for those who don't care.

Wow, -16 now. This is funny! :D :P

Also I'm not sure what to think about the new "Reputation" feature. It will point out anytime when a clear majority of people disagree with something but just because an opinion isn't popular doesn't mean it's wrong. I guess I look forward to seeing users abuse that stat in the near future. "My reputation points speak for themselves and bla bla bla..."

Haha, I have a poor reputation. Oh well, I know the people I know on here and am already friends with some people on here that I want to be friends with, so that's more important to me.
