    rep system will be abused some way like everything ends up on OT.But OT is like the fat kid and sending him to fat camp. The scenery might change a little but OT will still be the fat kid. Im just pissed now because my ex-wife hacked my account and i had to put a "1" after my name. No OG status and im still paying cause of that nasty bitch...lol. i remember the crack down after the goatse incident.

    I can't figure out how the rep system would work without getting abused.

    I still skim through it from time to time, but lurk/read/participate in the subforums more.

    But as I said in the other thread in the Vag about this, I hope they do make 02's and 03's OG's :x:

    Come to think of it, the only thing I would miss would be the sports/gambling & TV subforums.........and those I can do without.

    Oh well....more time for life away from internet is never a bad thing.

    I'm against the rep system. On every board I've been on that has it, I don't even bother posting there because it'd take too much time and effort to acquire reps.

    They seem to want to trim the userbase by killing off all new suscribers, this will lead to an exponentially dying site.

    Although final decisions have not been made, you can only get so much out of a limited group.

    eh.....in fazle I trust.....if it goes downhill, ill stop visiting and stop paying. I figure most people view it the same way as I do and OT will die. There are other forums out there so im not to worried.

    Faz wants to implement reps so you can "tell" if someone is worth listening to I guess. I'm not sure why, but it's purpose would be if the general public likes you or not. You could vote +1 to someones rep or -1 to someones rep. After so many goods you could get free subs or so many bads you could get auto-banned. I guess thats to make you think twice about your posts?

    As for the sub thing your in the clear if your throwing cash at him. He doesnt complain for those who pay.

    Hope that helps :h5:.

    +1

    I think it is meant more to weed out the dumb fucks that run rampant in the main forum. Just more incentive to get a sub. Even if the idea does backfire there are a shitload of members that would keep it along for a long ass time. Especially if 02's and 03's get OG status :x:

    This is a very accurate statement.

    I agree that the rep system will require a control in place. Whatever changes are made, can be undone. If this new system fails miserably, I'm sure it will be canned.

    If you enjoy OT, or even just the Vag, a subscription surely wouldn't break anyones bank account...My sub is a small price to pay for the time I spend on here over a year and the 'entertainment' it provides.

    Hopefully final decisions will be made soon and the quality of the site will not be affected.

    The rating system is good in theory but will fail in practice because crews/groups will just side with each other and then all chaos will happen and it'll be pointless.


    as for the paying for main forum usage, I think its stupid because it only helps weed out those who cannot pay.
    So trolls and tards that have their parent's money can still be as useless as they are.

    I still like my idea best.


    When a user hits a certain amount of negative rep or gets "X" amount of negative rep in a row, an alert is sent to mods and they investigate his/her posts. If the user is being a complete douche / deserves banning -- it happens.

    autobanning FTL

    I'm going to go with yuppy on this one and say that i think the sub forums are going to get zerged. I just dont want to see "would you hit it?" threads go rampant in the vag. A lot of "kids" dont have the $6 for three months and wouldn't ask their parents to pay for it cause idk many parents that would approve. Where else can 16 y/o e-thug lol. Change is imminent but OT will prevail and the same cast will press through it and be here.

    Oh yeah, I believe it could get nuts...but I also believe Fazle will know if it's gone too far.
