Leave the threads up but with a comment explaining to the individuals why they are getting banned. That way we all know that they are banned and more importantly why and it can sort of be an example.

I thought you only deleted threads when they were extremely offensive.

Telling me to die irl is not offensive? :(

Whilst three mods are here (you certainly come running when a post is reported!)...

Why were Flesh, Shy and Lox banned? Was it for their continual spam or did they do something else that was deleted then too. Im still trying to work out what you see as acceptable and what is not.

I think getting rid of it was good because most of the idiots on the DAOC boards are abusing it to enlarge their e-penis.

Sharma, I like you - I think you make good points. Yet what I really really hate about you is when you make such comments. Idiots are idiots, I am not automatically an idiot because I play DAoC and post on forums, and I find it even more hypocritical, when you yourself first came to these boards as a DAoC player.

What I dont understand is why it mattered that a few people were Rep farming, and if it really does it cant be that hard to see to it that people arent recieveing lots of +rep from one person. Now that you can see where the rep came from, people are a lot les slikely to randomly give bad rep for the sake of it.

Im not highlighting all the boards as idiots, its the fact that despite the number of decent people on here it only takes a few to turn it sour which spoils it for everyeone else.

with it being visible people were taking revenge on people who gave them bad rep for a valid reason (which it wasnt in the persons own eyes ofc).

It being unvisible people were spamming bad rep and with it being visible people were taking revenge. Also people were spamming good rep on friends of them. So the system was quite useless for an indication of how good the poster was.

99% of the people who went into negative rep were people who had spammed useless crap on this forum, thus deserving the bad rep ¬_¬

But a system like that will never work. You could use it properly and give bad rep on bad posts, but that person will respond purely out of spite/revenge/whatever ~ ~

You need to work more on getting your point across diplomatically. But then you didnt really have much of a point there anyway did you?

Bleh fine, I'm obviously on my own with this one here. I still think they needed to give it mor eof a chance since they made the rep giver visible.

Yes we will, once some enhancements have been made to the system. We are not the only board who have turned it off due to abuse and the makers, Jelsoft, have a long list of suggestions to make it work better.

For now, it will be staying off.

I said not all of the boards, yet most of the idiots that are there.

There is a collection of idiots on the boards, and most of them, they abused it.

If you catch my drift now. :)

/edit There are a small number of people of consider idiots, two of the were banned, namely Flesh and Lox.

I was not labeling you an idiot at all.

Sharma, consider your drift caught. :)

You tried to give me -rep for saying that a £10 donation isnt that much money for people who are desperate for a new title.

Don't complain ;p

That was K9 and STs 'ingenious' scheme to get themselves huge rep. They gave each other +rep. However as you have to 'spread it around', they had to give rep to anyone else they could find, making it +rep would defeat the whole purpose of doing it. Hence the 'just business' comment.

they could have alternated it off course(bad and good rep), but then the difference between their good rep and everyone elses was ofc less visible.
