    Hi all BHs,

    The REP button came to my attention as I already lost 2 reps just because I posted twice in th wrong section. I believe that was unfair.

    I think this feature is very powerfull. But should be used correctly against spammers and members who upload wrong, not working, or virus infected files.

    What do you think about this feature and how can it be used correctly?

    BTW I'm taking this opportunity to openly ask the mods to restore my reps 'cos I'm relatively new and trying to be a usefull member of this community that I'm happy to come across.

    Thank you in advance.

    PS. Anymore button happy members? Feel free to take as many reps as u like!!:(

    To kaizersuzi:

    Like I said in my response to your PM, I do not have the power to remove either a bad or good rep. If you feel that you have been unjustifiably de-repped by one or more of the members here at BHW, you need to PM HaRRo or Essential Clix and state your case.

    Hi Wiz,

    I thought posting it here will let members to post their views. Members views are always good to improve a forum no water how good it is.

    Rgrds,

    Thanks.

    It's just a matter of principle. it seems poeple don't read the notes.

    Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.

    How can posting in the wrong section by mistake be categorised in the above note?

    I've taken away the two negative rep you received for posting in the wrong section, as that's really not what the rep system was intended for (punishing newbies). We would rather people simply hit the red Report button to let us know. It doesn't specifically say "miscategorized posts" (yet), but we don't mind. We appreciate it when people notify us of these things, as we cant be expected to read every single post. ANY thread/post that needs moderator attention should be reported to us, even something as simple as posting in the wrong category.

    I think is good to leave the button if members know how to use it against some kind of scamers, spammers, or poeple who posts not working applications or viruses. That will help choosing the members to work with or to use their services.

    Reputation is not about that little white number, it's about what every other respected member thinks of you. Get a good reputation, and you will get a good number. I think some people have it backwards.
