#1927814 Oh How I Hate the Capitals

Posted by softshoes on 29 March 2010 - 02:44 PM

I remember another guy who wrote a long post too.

Pretty sure it started, "It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times."

Yeah that was it, I think there was something about defense in his post too. I remember now, "You'll never win a cup as long as you have Coffey." :rolleyes:

I'm sure if Zetterberg took a swing, he'd be the one to get punished by the League, Crosby probably knew it too. Z did the right thing.


Well considering I doubt Zetterberg has the heart to fight a very physical player like Crosby I doubt we will ever know.

Shouldn't some practical joker be giving me a good repuation right about now?

Like say a +120 :D

-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.

I do appreciate it. That doesn't mean I don't think this system is ripe for abuse, though. I feel bad for good posters who always make great contributions to this place only to find those contributions basically crapped on.


It sucks.

I'm fairly confident that's why Matt decided to only put each member's reputation within their profile and not under their posts. While the system can be abused, if its used properly it should be quite effective and beneficial for the boards.

We all have to keep in mind that its a going to be a work in progress and Matt and Co. will work out the kinks as we move on. As I said before, once the novelty of this wears off hopefully people will use it for what its meant for and not personal vendettas such as what one member (whom I know who it is) did to me in my Trade Deadline thread.

I gave you a "+" for your post, are you singing a different tune now? :P Joking aside, I agree with you. It's a great feature if the system was used responsibly, however that will probably never be the case.

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.)




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.

I don't like the reputation system either. We've clearly seen in this thread how it's being abused by people who are just going around giving negative points to people they don't like, regardless of what the post actually says. How does that promote a friendly and welcoming forum atmosphere?

I'm sure I'll get a slew of negative points for saying that, but anyone who does is merely demonstrating their immaturity. I feel bad for people like Jack (SWF) who always make solid and positive contributions to the board, and are getting caught up in this.
