    In a few years time I will be getting a certain 4 wheeled bike aka quad bike and a head cam would be great - although I won't be able to afford an expensive one. Will obviously need a helmet and protective gear etc, think I will stick to posting videos on youtube

    I can then safely ignore the comments section or just disable it

    I'll "drag" it on for as long as I have something to say, you don't have to read it; as for being 'pathetic', I have no issue with someone considering me so, but in each case, don't use back-door tactics to get your point(s) across.

    I think that's what the rep system is for, yes (well, the first comment, but not the second - personal attacks are never good.) Also, a mod has said to drop it now, so personally I'd think enough is enough.

    (I didn't do any repping etc... in this thread, as I seem to get into so many arguments I decided to ignore this one )

    Negative rep is issued anonymously to prevent a rep war (returning negative rep "just because") which is itself an abuse of the rep system. Admins can see who has issued negative rep so if you feel rep has been issued unfairly, or is being used as a means of abuse, you can get in touch with them through PM or the private forum.

    lol I got one for saying "Arse". Apparently that is also what the system is for; if you can't find fault with someones argument find a word you don't like.

    (Opps I said arse again - another bad rep please )

    I'm not suggesting the rep given was unfair (each is entitled to his/her own opinion), but if someone has something to say to me, I'd prefer it was said out in the open rather than in some pusillanimous manner.

    The rep system is widely abused on this forum and has been a bone of contention on more than one occasion.

    I might be a bit thick (or maybe just too old) but I read the link on the rep star as meaning "Add to this user's reputation", is there some way to subtract from their reputation?

    ...and I am also interested to know how one can see what negative (or positive) rep is given to me?

    I would also like to clarify that at no time were my posts meant to be "anti-biker"...rather a comment on anti-social/illegal road manoeuvres on a video that was posted on a public forum...and to be very clear I would in no way endorse aggressive and or dangerous actions taken to stop anybody carrying out any manoeuvre that I disagree with...

    When you click the star you are given the option of positive or negative rep and the opportunity to leave a comment.

    If you click "Settings" under your name at the top right, it will show you latest rep received and where/how. Neg rep is anonymous, not sure about positive,

    Positive rep given by the rep button is also anonymous, you can only see who has added to your rep if they thank you publicly via the "Thanks" button

    Even after a MOD has asked us not to? That's dissent and worthy of a -rep

    Edit. I just got a -rep for oppression of freedom of speech. I wonder who that might be from

    Freedom of speech - Yay!
    Freedom of a private forum - Not so much.

    OT but where do you even find your rep comments? I feel I may be missing out on some valuable feedback!

    Click on settings. They're at the bottom, if a comment has been made.

    Ah ha, many thanks. I obviously need to be more radical one way or the other. I shall mend my ways.

    The negative rep was not from me. I have something to say, I do it via a direct reply or to your face.
