    I don't know what I've done recently to get such a low reputation. If I pissed anyone off I'm sorry. :( I'll do whatever I can to make up for it.

    I think the lower is better, considering MJ has a rep of only 2.4

    I'm sorry sir, but you'll have to steal quarters from little old ladies on the street to up your street cred and restore your rep.

    On that note, I don't know why I got such a high rep. I haven't even been here very long. :eek:

    Looking through the forums, it's only Demi-Gods/Godesses and Gods that have this. Perhaps a pilot program for a new feature? Bah! Googleymoo@that.

    It doesn't matter. You can still be a Demi and not be listed as Demi by requesting the removal of the "Demi" title under your name. It can be Demi, Contributor, or number based dependant upon posts.

    Yikes! Then what does that mean for me? Sure, my sense of humor is questionable and I don't shower every day, but how would that apply here?

    I try to be reasonably helpful, I think. I even merge my own posts! Perhaps I'll start doing some things differently and see if it alters the rep at all.

    No, you're being discriminated against because you're yellow, not because of your coloring. Besides, I don't think we've even determined if low is a bad thing.

    Although it seems pretty apparent the score is between 1 and 10. Or maybe 0 and 10, but I haven't seen any below 1. And none greater than 10. Wonder if it has something to do with the Forum Spy stuff - and they're just testing a new feature.

    Perhaps now that the discussion is in here we'll here from a mod. :confused:

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. I think it makes perfect sense that lower is worse, based on MJ and a few others.

    You people with low scores are just jealous anyways. DEAL WITH IT. Its a website, for christ's sake!!!

    Pff.

    That's hardly fair. And you would say that, anyway because yours is really high.

    I'm a bit pissed off to be honest. It seems a really unfair way of working them out, whatever it is. I don't think I'm that bad. :(

    Yeah, we know. But if I reupload my avatar blank it has the reputation on it when it's loaded. Silent Panda was the first to point it out. I'll try and find the link, it's in one of the threads about it. Apparently it can be done with the forum software. :confused:

    Edit: The post is here.

    What ticks me off is that it shrinks the 'tar to fit it in. I don't know why they couldn't just add in a text field or something. :confused:

    Perhaps if they'd hurry up and give you a rep score we'd have a better idea if low was good or bad... :rolleyes:

    so, you have to HAVE rep in order to give it? or be a "money-member"?

    most websites, everyone has a chance to give or receive it.

    its a little persnickety here

    I know you're messing around, but I think there's going to be problems with this if it goes ahead as a feature. People with high reputations are just going to think they can do whatever they like. It's not going to make for a very fair system if you ask me.

    Edit: Thanks tobefirst, it's nice of you to say. :) It feels bad to have a low reputation. :(

    Evidently your reputation isn't based on using proper grammar. :rolleyes:
