    This is really stupid.. "To view attachments you must have 21 or better reputation"

    Ive made tons of quality posts over the past few months, shared some free software I have coded, posted tutorials on hacking and I haven't gone begging for rep points so that makes me unworthy?. People have freely given me rep points without asking and now I have a pricely figure of 19 rep points...

    So I guess one has to simply upload warez links like some people are doing and beg for rep points now??

    So not done... :rant:

    i agree. credits and rep seem to be worthless. i see people appear on here out of nowhere with high reps and credits and ive never even seen them posting much on here.

    its time to start over. maybe only mods can increase reps. or get rid of them completely

    I agree. I've seen guys new to the forum make very usefull post and deffinately know what they are talking about. Also I have read post recently of very skilled members threatening to leave because they were limited and locked out of the vip section due to rep. system. It can be usefull but it can also so a lot of harm.

    ive yet to read a single post here that praises the credits and rep system. a lot of questions about what they are used for, and a lot saying how they are not good, but none saying how good an idea it is. maybe its voting time again.

    Just in the morning I posted the same without knowing about this thread..

    Here is my case:

    I know there is already a post for the same..

    Previously I was seeing "you must have 25 post" to download..

    Then I upgraded by paying $25/year subscription..

    and now I see

    "To view attachments you must have 21 or better reputation " for the same post

    Whats wrong?

    Do I need to keep paying $25 and this board come up with different blocking options?

    To many leechers coming and going that's why the mods keep changing things up alot. I wish they didnt but this is their forum.

    Sure thing. Don't hesitate to tell us if there are other problems/glitches in the system, we may overlook by mistake some of them.

    In my case, when I try to accumulate reputation by giving some quality posts, in
    white hat for sure, but the system just said my posts have to be censored.
    they won't be seen until a few day later, quite disappointing. anyone here
    try to review the policies?

    The rep system is new and all of the experienced members should just get used to using it. I think it's better in the long run, even though I was taken aback at first. Get used to giving out rep where you feel it's deserved.

    Yeah battman323 said it right with remembering to rep. I have not been here very long but I still forget to rep on a consistent basis.

    nova + rep given, I should of did this a while ago you deserve it, hopefully the members you have helped in the past may decide to rep you also if they have forgotten like I did.

    I like this rep thing, Its like a "I like" tag that you can give on vBulletin forums. I think for this to work ppl must be able to see who gave rep to who etc.... that is what brings ppl with the same view together.... I think...

    sorr for rambelig... just had a few drinks :)

    The 21 or better just makes things more interactive within BHW. More questions being asked and more than normal activity.

    The more questions being asked are from noobies or people that don't have 21 reps. this thread are for them to discuss this problem. Me my self i have had this problem but i don't complain instead i help others out and in the long run they will help you by Reps or when you request a download. So please stop posting these thread it's not gong to change anything. If any body have a problem just pm one of the mods.I did and got what i ask for and even more Thanks Diomond Dave.

    One word:

    Horseshit.

    But it ain't my forum and I don't make the rules.

    Here is a good example of how it goes.................

    "Hi!: I'm a noob and just got downsized from my full-time job working for The Man and I need quickly to learn another way to make a living!

    I have nothing to put up for download and have nothing for sale so I don't kn ow how I will get a Rep of 21!. AND I just spent my last twenty-five fucking dollars on diapers and food for the kids!"

    Michel gets to put up his ridiculous attempt at running a non-profit without benefit of ADMIN approval; a plan which leaves things wide fucking open for him to scam any and all amounts which might be "donated" to his "program" after it doens'nt work out (Which it won't!), while ordinary guys, looking for a new way, have to fuck around begging for "REPS" so that they can learn The Way.

    Asshole doesn't even have a non-profit corporation so anything that goes to him is NOT tax deductible to YOU; the "contributor"!

    You are banking on Michel's "intergrity" to see that the funds go to set up this "camp".

    Bad news: Such programs already exist and are up and running.

    Figure it out.

    Yeah, right.

    Like I wrote; it ain't my forum and I don't make the rules but I do know chickenshit when I smell it.

    BHW used to be a nice place and I do understand that the MODS and AADMIN are trying but I been runnin' forums for over five years and have NEVER done anything like this!

    ADMIN:

    Ya wanna make the forum a "Pay Forum"; OK, make it so!

    Ya wanna make it "Private"; make it so!

    Don't cripple the Noobs with an impossible goal for them to meet before they can fully participate!

    My $.02 and ban me if you like.

    Nice place but getting fucked up in a hurry.
