    I don't think there is. I checked mine when they announced the drop to 10. If you didn't, I'm not sure that there's any way to find out now.

    You must be dumber than shit. How in the hell do you take:

    I've been very clear all along that I was opposed to this.

    You have, but your post there indicates that there's no point in keeping Sokar and evenflow's rep in the red, and since the changeover means bringing everyone up to +10 green, you were pushing for the changeover. Kind of a "quit dragging your feet and get it done" post.

    Nick, great job! I am so pleased with the way you executed the rep change.

    Did you use HeidiSQL to manually change each rep field to +10? Because that would have been grand!!!

    See, much better. :)

    Although since it seems this thread has degenerated into name calling rather than any actual discussion, could be time to end it...

    WTF is happening to this board? It's turning into TNZ light. No wonder we keep loosing posters and slowly dying. The more you neuter the Red Room, the faster it's going to die.

    This decision sucks.

    This decision does, indeed, suck. :)

    The implementation has sucked too. Rep is just a freaking row in a table. It's not that hard to copy it, paste it into an excel spreadsheet, and if you screw it up, restore it five minutes later.

    HECK, it wouldn't have been hard to sort things BY rep score, and change the negative ones to +10 using Heidi SQL.

    This has been one kibosh of horrible implementation.

    It's as if the decision was made that 'Hey, they're pissed about the rep change? Let's give them some other way to be pissed so they'll forget the original change that they were REALLY pissed about!"

    Lanz, I like you, but I disagree with you on this one.

    And Nick? Nevermind. :rolleyes: Not much point in talking to a wall.

    As far as I'm aware this implementation was always the plan.

    And for people complaining about losing their rep scores and how it changes the board, I think this is the third time all up that rep has been reset, was a lot of support for resetting yearly when the board first started.
