This is more fun than election night, when I stayed up watching to see if [CHOSEN CANDIDATE CENSORED AS PER FRIENDLY FORUM RULES] would win. And of course, as we all know, [RESULTS OF ELECTION CENSORED AS PER FRIENDLY FORUM RULES]!!

I think it is not accurate I rank at a high 34 but have had many posts deleted in the past due to they were questionable. I think you forgot to tally those up! LOL

I'm going to give negative reputation points to everyone who votes for option 3 if that's what they mods go with! So watch out!

(... before you get mad, think about that one for a minute ...)

I gave you a thumbs up on this as you understand the concept and executed it well, plus it was a very stupid idea :-)
Have a great day!

How are you going to know who votes for option 3? Wait... Option 3 is... get rid of the negative reputation points.

Gee, I didn't know this thread was going to get HOT!

I think a feedback forum would be more accurate than rep points. Just because someone has good advice and gets free reps from other members, that doesn't make them trustworthy to deal with.

Just my opinion.

You need "10" power to give points to others.

I think a feedback forum would be more accurate than rep points.
Where would we locate this feedback forum?

This is a very good point. If you understand where toast is coming from. I was gonna make a similar point but couldn't find the words. All I know is I met a really nice guy from my home town through Friendly. I called him to join me at a spot I got permission to hunt. His name is Norman. He has got 22 post and 0 rep.I have 2300 post and a respectable 18 rep. I talk a lot and have two years detecting experience. Norman don't say much about his 22 years detecting experience. But when Norman talks I listen. He stepped out of the truck with a well used DFX and plucked a silver ring and silver quarter and I went home with a 1929 wheatie. There are a lot of good detectorists out there that do their talking with their metal detectors and I think some of us newer diggers should listen up. The real important numbers are the ones in the bottom of the treasure box.

Most respectfully submitted.
Sonny.

All I can say is, for the first time in years I voted for something/somebody that is actually winning (as of this moment). Strange feeling!!!

There is already a problem with this. Mostly everyone responding here has a rep in the single digits, except the owners and mods, who have roughly 50 to 60 points. What's up with that? Is it like All-Star voting, you each voted 25 times for each other? Cause that's what it looks like.

They've been here the longest and generally have the most posts. Those count for "votes" as outlined in Carol's post of how points were figured. I don't recall anyone actually "voting" for anyone just yet, at least not in the members I closely watch to make sure they don't have more "rep power" than me!!!!
