    Well you said "red rep is an extremely useful tool [...] they would now have to consider how the community reacts to their posts" then you said "it shouldnt make that much of a difference, red repping is half what a user can give out of green rep." Both a little out of context, but hopefully you see my point.

    I wouldn't be surprised, though I agree it would be far less likely. But again, how do you 'prove' the rep ring exists? SSs? Again... false information was and is a possibility.

    Quite frankly, yes. Why should the user they're ganging up on have to solely deal with the bullying of their comments? In public, everyone can see the immaturity of the users who feel the need to belittle others. And from my view, it would be WAY easier to delete posts rather than have to sort through a tirade of PMs, SSs, false information, accusations, people getting upset cuz they care too much about rep, etc.

    I'll ask AA and Alu and see if they can confirm this.

    Though I will say, a few of the problems i've addressed (mostly about lack of proof) could be fixed if the admins implemented a report feature for rep comments. I don't know if that's in the cards though.

    I actually can't remember doing that. Oh the power I once had......

    I think I got red repped about 4 times, big whoop. However, what I think everyone is patiently trying to say is unless you have the maturity to deal with it then it's not viable to bring it back. It causes far too much flaming and arguments. Maybe you weren't here when it was introduced, but it was actually responsible making rep worth nothing.

    People just repped each other mindlessly so they could acquire the rank of Duke and therefore begin to subtract rep points. Not to mention the post spamming. It was thought that by the time one got to Duke (1000 posts, 6 months and 200 points of rep) they would be responsible enough to use their red rep privileges. That of course turned out not to be the case.

    you say this as if every single member spammed nonsense and then abused the power, that is not the case, again it was a small minority that screwed up a good system for everyone else. i believe most of these ppl are either banned, or inactive now so think well be alright

    Without red rep, the system is useless. It doesn't make sense to be able to tell someone good job, if you can ONLY tell someone good job.

    I rep people and leave negative comments, as that's the only way to do it now without being public about it.

    What about the new generation.....

    You can betcha last dollar another group will once again abuse the privileges. Maybe it was a small minority but it was enough to generate ripples through the community.

    somethin tells me you became one of their regular rep spreads as well
    Actually incorrect. Cushseth was not actively part of this rep circle.

    Personally, I think while red rep was fun, it's probably for the best that it's gone. It caused more trouble than it was worth.

    Alright, well i've asked, and yes they can see them. Even with that, it puts a lot of modding pressure on just two people.

    Just because they can view rep doesn't mean they can do anything about it.

    The admins have made it clear that rep isn't anything they'll focus on, ever.
