Impressive reputation points!

I was "mouseovering" the rep points of users to see what it says when you place your mouse over them. I read, "must try harder", "getting started", "flying under the radar", "good contributor" which is a very high level and great members such as Flying Doc Silverbird, and Captain Wahoo have.....
what kept my mouth open is "DIECAST ICON" WOW!
User WAFFLE has this one...and I think he is THE ONLY ONE???
How many points has he gathered to reach such a level? Funny is, I don't see him on too many posts, so he must make each word count!
Way to go waffle!

Re: Impressive reputation points!

I think Jim can tell you more about how often you have to be awarded for such a high point.

Thank you for your help!

I am personally not fond of the reputation system as I have already shared my opinion when it started. It did impress me that only one person has it... Waffle must be a great guy!
Is there anybody else out there with Diecast icon? What comes after that? Diecast God?

Hey Waffle, could you please tell me how many thousand points it takes to be an icon?

Waffle is an admin? Then why does he need to get Rep. points? Jim for example who is an administrator dosend accept rep points,... and if you ask me.... in a company THE BOSS dosn't need to become "employee of the month"! If Waffl is one of the Bosses... then I really dont get the point?
Are you suggesting he gave them points to himself? Or that people are kissing up to the boss That's usually the case.
Damn I better give Waffle some positive points fast... GOTTA CATCH UP WITH YOU GUYS!

Re: Impressive reputation points!

Well I used to post a lot of spotting and model photos, hence the high post count back when I joined the forum. :-)

The 2000 or above post count means nothing to most of us, It means something only to new members and the young ones.
Whether you have 240 or 2400 posts, the quality of its content means a lot more than just text-typing style conversations in the forums.

I second that opinion Jay!
That is why, as previously noted I totaly dissagree with the rep. point system!

The Post count is totally different to the Reputation points.

Post count:
It counts the total posts posted since you joined the forum.

Reputation points:
Where members or registered readers can vote positive or negative of my posts.

Like in previous post, I meant to say that 20000 posts means jack to most of us, whereas seeing the green dots of reputation showing who's being serious in this forum and who are not, normally those with red dots.

Agreed. You can usually tell who's the real deal and who's not. Those like you Jay, Furry, Wahoo, and Lufthansa340 are the top of the top in this forum. Although, post count doesn't always tell the younger from the older. I've been here for almost a year now and haven't yet topped 400. Not implying that I'm an older member of this forum, look at the users who have been here from the start. Some explode like you, and some just sit back and watch the show go by, posting every now and again.

Re: Impressive reputation points!

As my teachers say when essay writting, its about QUALITY, not QUANTITY.
At the end of the day, I believe they system was implemented as there was alot of "banshee" around the forums. I think that it worked in the way of clearing up the "conversations/arguements/disagreements" LOL

Kind Regards

(Just out of inquisitiveness, what is the thresh hold to become an "excellent contributor" and a "diecast icon"?)

Re: Impressive reputation points!

From my point of view the reputation system is nice but there was another "pointing system" who was more useful in the past: "TRADER RATING POINTS".
In this way, before to choose to sell/buy/trade something from/to a member you were able to check if it was a serious seller/buyer or not.
I hope one day this useful system will be back.
