lolz If the only way you can get rep is by begging for it, that kind of defeats the whole purpose of it! You god neg'd, deal with it!

Not begging. Asking.
There's a difference.
Plus, I got neg'd for no reason. "Here you go" explains nothing. Surely the point of issuing neg rep and leaving a comment is so that the person receiving it can learn from their mistakes. [Providing there is an actual reason for the neg rep... which in most cases doesn't seem to be the case.]

I am going to formally request its added to vbulletin too, its an obvious option especially for smaller sites with less members and looking at the code its not that hard to put in.

@X-13 I have hacked an override in set to 30 days currently, the error message is still the same though for now but rep should work for the same person after 30 days (accurate to the sec btw currently, working on a tweak for that)

The problem with that is quite often an answer is useful to others and they may want to offer their thanks.
I think it would be better if only the thread starter could thank the posts in their thread

Surely your stars should be Pentagrams

As a long time lurker of this forum, might I make a polite suggestion? Disable rep in the non-ICT forums like this one and most of the others under General (such as Gaming). I can see the use of rep in forums like the technical ones, since it's meant to show users who are helpful to others. Most of this forum is just non-work related discussions/jokes though, which means people end up getting neg repped for things like having a slightly different opinion, or liking a different kind of music to someone else. IMO that's not really what the rep system is meant for.

I think that's a good idea in the previous post @ZeroHour

Was it you I was standing with at BETT this year Tony, when there was two teachers who COULD NOT POSSIBLY CONCEIVE why we'd voluntarily call ourselves geeks...?

Theatre technicians are the same. many are rabid in their loathing of "techie". Me? Meh... It's a word.
