    Hey. 2-3 days ago I get -10 reputation. Yesterday I get -1 reputation. And than I saw that I got -10 rep in my journal, becouse I writed my years (15) in post topic, but there are many threads like my with years in title. I got -1 too for CPA, I dont know why :( Can anyone tell me why I got -10 for my age in title? :) Thanks.

    I guess because people are sick of journals, especially in which OP deems it necessary to mention their age. Anyway, looks like you are going to get some more of these by virtue of this thread.

    Good luck.

    Next time don't mention your exact age, just say that you're still in High School or something.

    Gone are the days when you would cry for rep and people would give you plus reps but now we tend to give more neg rep if you cry for it. For instance I gave you -4 for crying. You're -20 now from -16.

    It looks like you ticked some ppl off... esp seeing that you are now at -20. I looked over some of your previous posts and don't see anything alarming but obviously a few people haven't liked something you posted.

    The best answer - ignore it, and just post good posts... you'll see the numbers recover. Here's a little 'bounce back'.

    Sunny and Xenix,

    Honestly... what's the deal? I understand giving someone neg rep for asking for it... but giving neg rep cause he's 15, has a language barrier and confused as to WTF is going on with his rep.

    Seriously... that's a crock of BS.

    PS. I gave him +9

    Don't focus much on your rep, it will not let you move forward. Likewise with money, if you just focus on the reward then you'll never get it, you have to rather focus on the work.

    Get a mod to delete this thread then start making useful posts, and don't mention anything about the past or your journal, people are just gonna go there and harm you.

    I did not neg rep him for his age, but just neg repped him because he made too big of a deal out of the rep he received. We've seen many people doing it lately...come crying out for a neg rep received and they end up with free rep increasing fro what it was initially. Like when I saw the thread, he was a -16 and now despite of the neg rep I gave and xenix gave, he's at +2. You get the point? ;)

    I did. You deserve a neg rep yourself because that was a dick move IMO. The OP isn't crying, he's simply inquiring a valid question. He's new to the forum, and wanted to find out if he did anything wrong because -16 or whatever the rep was makes him look like a scammer or a complete idiot. Why should he get neg repped because of his age? Sounds like a DigitalPoint infection here. Everyone should have the right to free speech without being neg repped for their opinion as long as it's not insulting or dam right stupid, etc. Some people seem to have jealousy and ego problems so they give out neg rep left and right just because they can. I give out neg rep at times too, but not because someone creates a journal in the new Journal section (exactly where such threads belong) and then gets neg repped by some troll who doesn't have a life. Take it easy guys, you all were noobs some day too. It's not like the OP is asking to spoon feed him, he's actually trying to take "action".

    Peace.

    First off, let me say I applaud all you Jr VIP's who have taken this stance to neg rep those who beg for thanks and rep, as I think rep-begging devalues the forum immensely and greatly annoys me!

    But, you have to remember **spiderman quote**
    'with great power comes great responsibility'.

    If you take too hard a stance with new members you may inadvertently create an image that BHW is far too unforgiving for new members.

    I know this isn't your aim, but word could spread that we are not welcoming etc.

    Whats wrong with you guys giving him neg reps?
    he does bring up a genuine issue... i.e. rep abuse. Why are Jr VIPs taking unfair advantage of their neg rep power?

    You don't like someone so you neg rep them even on a good post.
    You don't like journal threads so you neg rep them even though BHW has its own dedicated section and even mods have opened their own journal threads.

    And when they bring the issue to the public, you again neg rep them?

    Guys play it fair!

    PS: I gave him a +27. And I'm open to receiving neg reps for that if anyone thinks I did the wrong thing.
