- i'm sure it was @Domino @ Bett11 who reeled off the perfect definitions to describe the difference between Nerds and us Geeks.
There's been a lot of discussion here, and it seems people are in favour of removing rep from non-IT forums, such as General-Chat, where this thread resides.
There have been 46 'Thanks' so far in this thread, and probably countless 'Reps' both +'ve and -'ve. Are we ready to lose all that, especially those newly appointed Double Star Generals...?
Reading this, got me thinking about Dark Angel, and Batman Begins, and about the effects of an EMP along the lines of some kind of apocalypse with everything starting from scratch; a clean slate....
What would happen if all rep, stars, stripes etc were lost? Would EG continue to be as successful and useful to its members...? Will we no longer be able to get the help we need? If so, then we need to be careful, as one determined hacker could jeapordise the entire UK education system.

witch, you rep me, i rep you, we both go up! lol
oh of course lol. I am happy with the amount I have built up in 3 years works out to be nearly 100 rep per year (1 rep per 3.65 days )
neph, you are so far ahead of me I can barely see you....
If you get in to work on a typical Monday morning and see a funny that really picks you up, isn't that worth a word of thanks?
To be honest, I'm happy to start again. It might ever be worth looking at that, the idea of archiving rep on a yearly basis. Those who regularly gain rep because they deserve it (through whatever means ... whether through tech posts, advice posts or fun posts) will gain rep again.
If nothing else it might encourage those who are a little wary of the rep system to contribute a bit more freely, thank others a bit more and share the rep around (-ve and +ve).
^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said
Pedanticness is simply the addition of a suffix to a word to show the condition, quality or state of being something. "His pedanticness was becoming a problem as he tried to re-word the FAQ"
This differs from the use of 'pedantry', which people sometimes mistakenly use when they mean pedanticness, and vice versa.
