    Ok, this guy claimed that his family got murdered and asked for a donation. I called his bs and got into an arguement with him. The mods took action and found out that it was indeed a scam. During this process two people neg repped me. Although i was right, i cant defend myself because the thread is closed. And i am sure there are other members who got neg repped like me.

    I know whoever neg repped me acted emotional and thought they were doing the right thing. But because we cant see who they are, they probably have no idea what they did was unfair. I would like to suggest that this neg repping should not be hidden so anyone in this situation can defend themselves. What we did was not wrong and maybe we helped some members keep their hard earned money in their pockets.

    I am sure there are many members here that went through the same unfair problem. If neg repping becomes clear, then i believe some people will stop treating it like a play button and regular members will have the chance to defend themselves, clear their names. I am trying my best to contribute to this forum and unfairness is just getting under my skin. If i am gonna lose my reputation just because someone felt like doing so, then what's the point of the rep system?

    Please change this somehow so that innocent members dont get hurt. Thank you.

    Why dont you look to get more Green Reps than Talking about your negative reps?

    Remedy to your question is only to remove the Rep System! :D

    Do you honestly care about rep points on a forum?

    If you do, then you have bigger problems than this.

    P.s. as you are so concerned about it, I just gave you + rep. Don't spend it all at once!

    If you care about rep so much that you have to open a thread about it, you need to get out and get some pussy. Just saying.

    Maybe i should not but i do. I wouldnt consider doing business with someone who has a negative rep. Yes, some members who had a high reputation scammed members here but also there are many members who have a high reputation and contribute to this forum. I think it adds a weight since its online, title and rep points are important criterias along with quality posts (not the post count). I appreciate your rep but i dont think i deserved it. I wasnt asking for one, i was just pointing a possible issue that could be fixed somehow.

    Gosh, instead of focusing making money online you are here worried about reps?

    Anyway, as long as you have at least 10 reps, you be fine.

    I get that. What if you have 10 already and you get neg repped? I am sure this will effect your joint venture deals.

    Oh yea, then that will be a problem. LOL.
    Well, it really depends on who's de-repping you.

    When you wanna rep/derep a person, the message will ask you: "How do you find xxx's post?"
    I got derepped for using the Lord's name in vain, which was totally unintentional as I used the slang (hint: J*zz..). So it really Different People Different Perspective. You can get derepped even if it's just some personal issues.

    But I try not to let it bother me though. lol

    For me personally its not a big deal, I was neg repped 4 times within the first week or so on the forum, for posting some stupid noob stuff.
    My Rep has never recovered, and that was 2 years ago.

    The thing that cheers me is most of the guys who flamed negged me, are banned and I.m still here.
    Which is the most important thing, for me anyway.
    Yes having a neg rep ,does prevent me doing certain things, and does influence people in their attitude to you,

    So to dismiss it as nothing is wrong, otherwise it has no purpose and should be done away with.
    Personally I think it is a good thing. and even if I try not to let it influence me,
    subconsciously it does

    If you are asking for neg rep to be shown as to who gave it to you, that won't happen. From memory I think we had this inplace once, maybe for Jnr VIP's and up? Can't remember exactly. But all it does is create "reciprocal" bad rep, even if the negative rep was deserved in the first place.

    As for in your case. Just go with it I guess. I have neg rep aswell you know :). You just have to hope that what you post is good enough to outweigh the bad. If you are not posting good stuff that would outweigh it, then you shouldn't be worried about selling things on this forum anyway.

    I don't like this thread so now I will neg rep you AGAIN!

    JK lol :)

    I understand where you're coming from but this can't be because then everyone will be mad about it and start a rep war. It's better for it to remain anonymous and just take the hit. I even gotten neg rep for telling someone to follow the rules in the lounge. That's some BS but I'm not complaining.

    Just take it like a man and here, I'll rep you +2 to make up for those two negs.

    P.S
    congrats on 100 rep pyronaut ^^

    Do you comment on every single thread with this kinda stuff just to increase your thread count or is it to advertise your signature?

    400 posts in a single month? Cmon..

    Well you shouldn't have got into a petty argument that really had nothing to do with you in the first place, take that as a lesson learned.

    Probably not. He already has enough posts so the filters aren't a problem for him. He already has enough posts to join the Jr.VIP if he wants to. And this thread is in the lounge so replies don't have any affect on his post count anyway.

    It could be that signature thing, or maybe he just likes interacting with people. LOL

    ------------------
    For the OP, just keep trying to make good posts and your rep will take care of itself. As far as affecting any JVs, well most people look at a lot more than just your rep for that. A couple neg reps shouldn't be enough to cause to much problem.

    Everyone knows that rep can be given for anything. Negative Itrader points would be a bigger issue to watch out for.
