    It`s all about comformity, so as to make us act the way big brother says we should.

    They should start giving out scarlet letters too, c`mon lets take it to the next level.

    it kinda pisses me off...
    to be honest with you.. I see people with 100 posts that have higher rep than others with over 2000 posts..
    someone please make sense of this to me.

    Thats interesting but I would only agree with that IF the mods set the rep power but its not set by them and its a "vote" by the other members, so we all control each others reps.

    Well I think it depends on where you post, what you post, and how exposed it is.

    A lot of members hit the Adult Sites and Celeb photos so posts there are going to get more exposed and thus more people will vote.

    Its based on Votes from members not anything else..

    I think that our initial rep power was decided by a number of factors such as how long we've been a member, how many posts we've made, and even which forums we've posted in the most. That last criterion is just my hunch, though.

    If your a mod does that mean you can set your own rep power?

    NO indeed. We are trying to figure it out too. So, I guess we will all be enlightened at the same time.

    So what your basically saying is that someone somewhere is probly laughing their ass off and controlling the site at will?

    No, I believe she's saying that the mods can't change their own rep power and that Rob_E, the owner of the site, is the only one who knows exactly what went into deciding our initial rep power.

    It must be cool to have that kind of power, it must be tempting not to mess with peoples heads. I wonder if he does every know and then but doesn`t say anything, i probly would.

    Bingo! I didn't know anything about this rep power option until I logged on. The moderators don't know anything.

    And apparently there are other changes as well. The mods have not been told anything about the changes that have been put into effect.

    We all will have to learn on our own and share with each other I guess.

    I appreciate the mods honesty, thank you naughty and freddie, some how it`s comforting to know were all in the dark.

    We're very much in the dark about how the point system works. I didn't even know what the scales were until I read posts in the Help section.

    When you hold your cursor over the little green square, it says "Industrialsize is on a distinguished road", so I guess 6 is a good place to be.

    Whatever the rep thing is I hope people will refrain from taking it too seriously. Although I'm not holding my breath.

    I'd never noticed it until now. It says mine is a 6. Certainly not my cock size! :tongue:
