This sounds like the eBay Feedback system.. am I right?
Why on earth was this removed? I would buy alot more stuff from other members if it was safeguarded by an invaluable system like this.

Kind Regards

(Just out of inquisitiveness, what is the thresh hold to become an "excellent contributor" and a "diecast icon"?)
Matt just remember when writing an essay its all about the Quality but if you dont write enough down and cover the points you need too then its quite a bit about the quantity too!

Haha! Absolutly right... quite coincidentally, I'm writing an essay on how the Labour Party came to power in 1945! It really is quite riveting

Lightbulb Re: Impressive reputation points!

I`m not fussed about my reputation in terms of points! It`s a fun way of seeing who posts quality content, I see small but quality content as a measure of maturity and opposed to you serial poster types! Just out of coincidence, my reputation is currenty 747! How cool is that?

I contribute where I see fit, not what I think others want to hear. The comments on my page left by others mean more than the figures.

Re: Impressive reputation points!

Hi guys, some notes on this thread:

1. This web site is owned and run by Waffle, Jim and Flight director (Todd) for those of you who didn't know.

2. I'm reluctant to release the number of points to get to such and such rating. It tends to turn into a game after a while ("My 1,000th post!") so keep posting good stuff and others will reward you.

3. I turned off my reputation for a reason - this is (partially) my web site and I don't care what ya'll think ;-)

4. The number of points you award is relative to your own reputation. Some NooB adding to your reputation means next to nothing. However, if Rex, a loser, or Alexios doesn't like your post, it will put a serious hurt to your reputation.

5. I know it isn't perfect, but what else can we do?

6. The trader rep system was third-party software Lorenzo. Turns out we were having compatibility issues with the forum software (the person who wrote the program stopped updating it) and it got to be a problem when upgrading and maintaining the forums. We made the choice to drop it. We all agree it was useful, but honestly fighting software compatibility issues is not fun and we avoid it if possible.

Oh my Goodness, I'm honoured, but this hobby makes me no Master at anything. We love our hobby, we buy models and display them. Some show more addiction more than others, but that's about it. I love this.

Now that's hilarious, keeps me thinking ON TV for what?

I think it is grossly unfair to you that the other two gods continue to benefit from the patronage of mere mortals. There's no point in a juror being impartial if his colleagues aren't.

Its not unfair to Jim. It simply distinguishes him from others who need the reasurance. When you KNOW you are doing your best, you don't need something to grade you!

Re: Impressive reputation points!

Not all "impressive" points are gained from a legit reason, sometimes people ask other to pos rep them over IM's and chat rooms. Dont they? You know who i talking to.....

Waffle's the only Admin receiving points.

These two play hand in hand - the people who truly deserve the points ,whether they are rewarded or not, know who they are, while those who don't deserve the points they were given know who they are as well. Honestly, none of this matters - those who clearly deserve a high score always stand out remarkably, those who have fraudulently earned their scores stick out as well. Check their other posts and patterns stick out.
