Post by eddie on Tue May 17, 2016 8:40 pm

We are registering you when you request to join because we welcome new members.
If you want to be a member then make a post or simply read and post when you're ready.

HOWEVER!

Do NOT log on to give out negatives and/or positives. (It's just really sad, don't you think?)

Do NOT lurk without posting for too long. (It's just really sad, don't you think?)

Listen, we are watching you and as soon as your little fingers click a little red or greenie....you are gone.

So what are you scared of?

Oh all of you at some point but I don't always know.
I check their statistics and one member recently had given out about 10 reds but never posted.

Go figure.

I admire their willpower in a way though. I mean how many times do you log on for 5 minutes for a quick read and before you know it you have posted on several different threads......or is that just me? clown

Red is for a post you strongly disagree with....green is for one you like a lot.

Click on the little - or + on the right hand side of the persons post you want to mark. Smile

THANKS to yourself and Miffs for helping.
eeeeeddddddddiiiiieeeeee hhhhheeellllllppppppp.
Ben had to explain it to me too Stormee...my option to give a +/- VOTE kept disappearing... once our total reputation number reaches a negative number we lost our RIGHT to vote on others posts but everyone can still keep piling onto ours!
You are sitting at a negative -17 reputation and I've been up and down and up and now I'm back down -5...so we won't see the +/- up there beside the QUOTE function Suspect

It's obvious some of the idiots already here are joining up with other id s just so they can dish out red/green stripes.

Wait...Wait a cotton-pick'n minute; you mean that a current member is ALLOWED to have a dual membership and can then reek havoc against the community and other members with that 'sock-puppet/aka membership' ??? 
Is that even allowed around here? 
Surely that's not allowed - not possible? 
That would be a banning offense would it not?

It's not agaisnt the rules to have more than one ID but if you are wreaking havoc with a second ID, and caught, then it could be a banning offence at admin's descretion, yes.

HOW ODD...
1.) why would any respectable member want to do that
2.) doesn't that just create more problems for the mods/admin to chase after the lesser thinking problem children with nothing but behavior issues and a need to create CHAOS
3.) never been on any community that allows such a thing EVER before --- really flummoxed that this is allowed

Does that account for all of those 'MASSIVE #' of guests that just pop up on the daily counter down at the bottom of the main page? scratch

Multi id's are allowed...?


Why?


What purpose is there other than to disrupt legitimate debate in one way or another...?

the rules are not hard and fast (people forget the original, forgot they flounced or didn't whatever)

I'll just ban people that take the piss, and abuse the lax rules. 2 accounts but not being a problem and I probably wont notice Rolling Eyes

Well, that clarifies the massive paranoia from his majesty Didgy-dooer and his AKA's and all of his accusations that I was so many other member names; the poor baby was having issues with so many members his 'ARMOUR' was highly polished and on at all times regardless of the weather.

Favourite colours,  Stormee ?
That topic should be worth a thread in its own right..

I NOTICE sassy hasn't answered yet...


ANYWAYS,  I've always had a preference for those shades that you might see when taking a stroll uphill in the local bushland around here :
muted greens, light blue, soft browns and greys..

I'm also surprised that people are allowed to have more than one ID. That kind of thing really affects the legitimacy of discussions.

However, it's not necessarily sock accounts, it could be anyone joining - this forum is public and anyone can read it and decide who they like and don't like. Then there's always the possibility of the likes of Philagain joining over and over again.

The only multiple I would be pleased to have is a multiple orgasm.
Why would anyone hide behind another ID?
I bet there a few of the more rabid posters who cannot vote!

It seems as though it hardly serves any purpose since the 'ADMIN/Mods' have discovered the membership using their dual identities to abuse the +/- reputation system --- so why have it? 
Can't control it - allowing dual identities with nothing better then childish games and immature behavior; close it down...not like the MODS need one more issue to pay attention to

4ever we aren't actually aware of users having multi ID's, we are just saying that if they happen then the poster will be outed eventually anyway!
There might be one or two and we have a suspicion who they are - if they are desperate enough to need another ID.....so be it! We aren't going to go into tracking everyone and IPs prive nothing at all anymore.

Storm, quick answer no.
Long answer, gain some points and then you'll be able to vote.

If anyone wants to get rid of the points then put it to admin.

Not that complicated; you just LOCK THE IP OUT for a 2 - 3 days/ week / month and see what member tries to skirt around their original sign in!
Banning someone isn't efficient unless you PULL THEIR IP# as well - and there is the option for regional banning if they get cute and popping over to mom & dads to use their PC/laptop and coming in the back door.    Wink

I gave Stormee a alien too...unfortunately I couldn't give the one who I dare not mention (her/\) one cos of the flood control thingy....but I did try. Razz

Reason being, their nil points keep mounting up and they don't have the facility to vote either way till they get into plus territory, I don't think that's fair really.

I have seen some really inoffensive posts given a red mark....and some factual ones too....I think some people just have an agenda to mark down posters no matter what they say.

Thank you (she who I must not name) I like a bit of glitter. hi

If there is a way to remove the reds/greens given out by the recent trolls/multi IDs then it should be done to restore fairness and balance!

What exactly is the point of red and greens anyway? Is it to make people feel better or worse about themselves? I give them out but I don't take it that seriously.

I have only been on one other forum where points were awarded or detracted. I think it was Mickys first forum. I posted "Hello" in the welcome thread....and someone gave me a minus. Razz

Awarding a red/green should only be about a post... not about whether the poster is your 'friend' or not...
