Take this post of mine for example (from the National Anthem thread):



I was sure that post would ruffle some feathers, but nobody ever responded to it. I did however receive this negative comment:

"So it's ok to not keep your word? Terrible post, and terrible points."

I actually thought my post offered a different point of view, and I had some good points, but whatever. So, instead of sparking some interesting discussion, I just got negative rep. No big deal as far as I'm concerned, but I'm a little disappointed that no discussion ever became of it.
That comment was one that got my attention and made me bring up this topic.

That's correct, it's a 5 minute time limit.

That will render my salary cap thread useless. Can you give me an exception on that particular thread, or does VBulletin not allow that?

Re: observation on user reputations

i like keeping the edit button myself... and rep points have their place i guess, but i rather go by post count :P

i know i've been marked down in the "who will have a breakout season (A) anthony mix, (B) chris wilson" thread...
i said i didn't think either would (which i thought was a valid opinion) - boom - negative rep (how about not responding then).

great, thanks. i've seen a lot of that, but that's a semi-recent example.

It can't do exceptions on an individual basis

Can we bring the edit button back, or are we doing away with that thread?

Re: observation on user reputations

I've done away with the user reputations for now. It just seemed like it had turned into a covert way for people to take shots at each other.

I've also done away with the time limit on editing your posts.

I go away for a couple of hours to train some f'ugly new chick at my job and I come back and all my precious rep points for all my witty and profane comments have been snatched away. Goddamnit!!!

However, I do thank you for this.

Re: observation on user reputations

What are reputation points? Sounds cool. How can I get some?

Wait a minute, does this have anything to do with being Rick Roll'd?
