yeah but see everyone takes halloween to be like a pirate, I do it every damn day, so if I just dressed like a pirate, there wouldn't be anything special about it. So while everyone else puts on fake beards and hair, I cut my real ones off so as to not look like the rest of the male population

I didn't mind the rep system. At least you could tell, more or less, who had some credibility when it comes to posting. Sure, you could find cases where someones rep didn't accurately describe them (for whatever reason; haters, etc), but you could also find knowledgable posters with a deserving high rep.

I think the overall problem is there's too many kids on this site who don't get put in check by the mods/admins. The rep system being anonymous didn't help that.

Seriously ced? He was actually able to change it?

Pistol Pete once posted a FAQ or something about the ezboard rep system and it said that rep's were unchangeably anonymous.

Yep he did. It was quite entertaining. GOBB got lots of crap for no apparent reason. I'm guilty of that too.

Like the idea of full disclosure, that'll probably stop abuse, or make for some good flame wars.


I agree. It was entertaining. I got alot of negative reputation points, but it was hilarious to know that people actually get frustrated with me saying, "National Basketball Association" and give me negative reputation points for it. It was hilarious. Bring it back. It was very entertaining.

There is no need for a rep system, Ced just needs to fill some voids in his personality. For everyone else, we'll actually watch nba games.

Advice for everyone: ignore Ced as he is quite a sad person. Seasons about to start.
Advice for Ced: try and find more activities in real life to give you some fulfillment.
Whoa! That Sad Ced Got Owned!

Im for reinstating the rep system but only if they have to be signed and are viewable to everyone

If we had a rep system, I'd work super hard to be the leader. Having the highest rep would be a huge thrill for me!

More of these

(the ones near the bottom) or just a bigger presence without turning this into a police state, just to keep certain posters in check.

I think your talking about the admins, not the mods.

I agree, they need to start banning IP adresses not just ID's
