    Someone is playing nicely with the rep points. SLS is on a make new threads crusade to garnish rep points in my opinion.
    I would rather just stay out of it especially after reading the verbal diarrhea that came out in the thread on Andy's forum.

    I couldn't agree more...and most of the threads never even get one reply. Yet, the poster is automatically awarded for creating a thread that no one cares about. If that isn't blatant abuse of the system I don't know what is...

    I addressed it here:

    http://www.benzboost.com/showthread....673#post301673


    But it appears that changing the system would require custom programming. Hell, I'd be willing to help with the costs of the programming if it would help keep people from abusing the system to achieve distorted/bogus positive rep.

    I certainly do. At first it didn't bother me but it does when it waters down the quality.

    you guys are funny, you think the system doesnt work? It works just fine, if people intend to morph into spambots with "OMFG COOL VIDEO" threads then I will let them get their rep points, and promptly neg them once and ruin a weeks worth of work. Members that actually put in time and earn respect will be able to handle people who try to abuse the system. The system isnt broken LZH, you are just mad at SLS. How about you earn some rep points by being mature and when you have acquired enough, you can neg whoever you want into oblivion. Dont worry about other people, they will get whats coming for them.

    Allowing someone to post useless garbage to boost their rep not only devalues the rep system, but it also fills the site with $#@!ty content - which IMO hurts the site.
    I agree, the site is not broken - but it could be improved. Your way works too. But even with your 25 rep power, you would have to constantly spread rep around to be able to "neg someone into oblivion". So what you are essentially doing, is spreading rep around that shouldn't be given, just so you can neg rep the same person "into oblivion". And IMO that's malicious and also abusing the rep system. It makes a lot more sense to not allow someone to get rep that they don't deserve in the first place. If that were the case, I guarantee you the poster in question wouldn't be posting right now and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    The subscription packages will be ready by the end of the month.

    Default will have spread cut in half to 5. Premier will have 3. Won't be hard to spread.

    I think there needs to be a middle ground, you cant strip away rep from people who truly earn it or will earn it in the future and I agree that posting useless garbage to earn rep is also a loophole. There needs to be a way to design an algorithm to limit the number of rep points you can earn just by creating threads. In theory, I can create 20 threads a day and earn 20 rep points a day, that is abuse unless all those threads had truly valuable content and 99% of the time if someone did that it would not be useful content. So with the current system, implement ways to keep people from abusing it but without hurting the freedom of those who want to earn rep the hard way, providing good content and also respect eachother.

    This can be done, like a maximum gain per number of threads depending on the amount of rep you have OR only getting the rep bonus if someone clicks up.

    Something as simple as this, can solve the problem. no need for fancy programming

    I know that sounds simple but it does require fancy programming.

    This is exactly what I suggested in the rep system thread that I linked above, post #38. It could easily be fixed simply by having the system ONLY give system rep when someone responds and hit thumbs up.


    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who recognizes this.
