    Default 2009-07-06: Abuse it and lose it

    You will lose the rights to give user reputation if it's apparent that your main use of the reputation system is to make petty comments because you have a grudge against a particular user.

    Likewise, you will lose the right to tag posts should it become apparent that you're adding pointless tags to a thread. The system is to aid the findability of content, not for filling with the clutter of cheap gags or snipes.

    It is worth noting that the majority of people have nothing to worry about in using the above features of the forum. It's the minority who are spoiling the party, and those people know who they are and should not be surprised in the slightest to find they cannot give reputation or leave tags.

    Guilty for the tag (not rep) abuse too. Stand firmly corrected, have already erased the not funny "susan boyle FTW", or other useless tags some days ago. Misunderstood their use first, I know their purpose now.

    Ive added a lot of tags here, all which are extremely helpful when you actually use the tag search feature. Ive actually been able to find threads that ive been on before, since ive added tags on them before, very useful feature. As of the rep system. Well some people should start sh it by starting to give neg rep for no apparent reason. Ive given out alot positive rep, until an incident not so long ago.

    That's a very fair system.
    So what do I do if somebody's left me a petty comment with a neg-rep, nothing at all to do with the post it was for? Do I PM a mod or something?
    I only leave rep, positive or negative if I feel it's appropriate for the post, no matter if I like the member or not.

    Best to PM me if you think you've received some reputation that's unrelated to the post at hand.

    Thank god you weren't talking about my penis.


    I like this system, it's much better. I've never much looked at the rep page, I will do it moreso now.

    I never added any tags, but I have repped before when a good statement is made or helpful advice given. People who abuse the system like that don't deserve a place on the internet in my opinion.

    How does the reputation system even work? I've never seen anything in peoples' posts that says anything about it or how to give positive/negative score. It never really mattered much to me, but I've always been curious.

    Well the +rep and the -rep system works likes this;

    accidentally offend someone, piss of Rob, or just get into ###'s way. you'll be neg reped, however,

    You help a newbie member here, add an additional piece of advice about Wipeout gameplay information like good BR spots and techniques, drop a funny post here and there, you receive a +rep from someone.
