    One of those, yes. Two were long-time posters, the other two were newer..

    ^^^ I'm starting to think that this thread needs to be merged with the conspiracy thread! I'm glad you didn't get involved with the Illuminati PKM.

    It was a simple reference to the conspiracy group (neg reps) that tried to recruit you. I'm not referring to the actual Illuminati. They don't exist, Right? Right???

    That's right, Whisky. The Illuminati are nothing but Urban Legend.

    I like to use the rep system for a quick and easier private message.

    We should be able to buy rep power, bet it, sell it, trade it. I would like to see this thing get even more crazy.

    But how would that keep posters with high rep count from abusing their rep power? Doesn't it have to come back to Mods penalizing them eventually? I think it'll just create too much back-talking & mud slinging.

    Easiest way is for Mods to look into Neg Repping Records, this should easily catch guys who Neg Rep on a regular basis, and you can then keep an eye on them. I don't think there are that many anyway that are ruining it for most of us.

    What I meant was, it's too hard for mods to monitor all rep. And no one wants to be a whiny bitch. Therefore, if we all just agree to simply post our neg rep, it will quickly be brought to the mods attn if something is being abused and it can be dealt with. If I owned this site, I'd just say I'll make the rulez up as I go MFers. Be cute, be a douche, whatever .. but if you piss me off, I'll make your rep -1,000,000 .. or ban you, or whatever. Abuse the site and get abused. Don't like it? Behave or leave.

    When neg rep was anonymous, I had one poster, with whom I disagreed regularly, send me neg rep and sign is as another poster, one who had some sort of odd fixation. Had I cared about rep enough to respond over it, it might have started a flame war. Thus, I think signed rep is a good thing.
    .
    On the general topic, the board has not changed that much since we instituted rep, moved off RealGM, moved on RealGM, etc. Bullies will use rep when it is available, but will find ways to bully when it is not available. I don't see rep making a big difference.

    Yeah, Vermin, or Verlin or Box (same person) is the guy who would sign other posters names. If ever there was a ban worthy offense I think that's it.

    This is what I've been saying, but as usual, OB said it better.

    Yes that could work. But wasn't it mentioned here that the mods don't have ANY access to the Neg Rep comments? If that's the case, how can you verify if that Neg Rep is legit? Isn't there a system issue we also have to deal with here?

    I don't think the problem is worth the length of the thread .. but to answer your question;

    If a case is brought to Jason and/or Colton they have access to look at the rep and verify.

    The better solution is for those guys to give me full access to the site. I'll monitor this bitch and stick my foot where it belongs.
