    P.S.: For today, all of the green and red pips alike should totally have been replaced with hot pink pips.

    Both polls are showing a majority that says leave it alone, so leave it alone.

    14thDoctor, Dan Leach, Bailey, are illegals and can't vote. :bailey:

    Diacanu, John, are convicted felons and can't vote.

    Garamet is dead.

    This poll is misleading due to an incomplete list of choices.

    In the other poll, "leave it alone" couldn't crack 50%.


    That's not a real strong mandate for leaving things alone. :shrug:

    If you have a problem with someone neg repping you or having been neg repped, then you seriously need to find something else to do besides post on an internet forum. People are going to disagree with you. If you don't like that, you have the problem, not WF.

    Get over it.

    Okay I'll admit it, Diacanu and I are in cahoots. Nobody really wants rep change. :calli:

    Also, I think not liking being negged is kind of the point. Generally people get negged for being a stupid dick.

    So here's a better solution: don't be a stupid dick.

    And I don't even think that's an accurate representation, some posters on both of those lists have said they're in the "don't care" category but voted for one or the other. I think it was more evenly split between "Keep it", "Change it", and "Don't care" in Lanz's original discussion thread.

    Not that any of the polls really make much difference. :shrug:

    Oh. Um, OK, hang on...

    I know! Can you make it so that whenever someone leaves a rep comment, their computer sings the chorus to "The Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B"? :D

    That's okay. You don't ruin it for the rest of us. :wub:

    My point is: We aren't children. We can handle a dick once in a while. And we can handle criticism. You deal with dicks every day in the real world, and it's not gonna stop because you just don't want it on the internet.

    "Waaahhh, too many neg reps!!!"

    Well, stop being an idiot. :shrug:

    Just so you know, I read the whole post, but my level of focus stopped at "We can handle a dick once in a while", and then things got fuzzy.

    Why is the poll closed?

    I would reset it. Not for any dislike of the system, but just to piss off all the idiots on here that seem to think it is a badge of honour. Maybe to them removing their rep score somehow registers as invalidating the years they have worked to build it up in this place?? Get rid of it, its not real, get something more important in your life to worry about!





    ;)







    PS - Obviously leave wankers like Apostle at maximum red. Just because!



    Is there a thread or something that has a backstory to why these changes are now being implemented? Has someone done something or is it just tehdramma for the sake of it.

    There was a "proposal" that was soundly rejected by several polls and then all of a sudden it was decreed and implemented.

    I would also like to know what the catalyst for this course of events was. :bailey:

    You need to re-read the announcement. I didn't say "should we do," I said "I'm going to do."

    Ah. Ok.

    Well you still fucked up, Capt. Harriman. :shrug:

    ETA: Should have known better than to trust your recollection. The very thread had the word "proposal" in it and said you planned to do it if there were no objections. The thread had plenty and the various red room threads proved otherwise.
