You must spread some reputation around before you can give it to Ram27 again.

While we're on the subject of forum settings, how about a boost to private message storage?

This should not be a set number but rather a factor of the amount of posts per day. I've developed a complex logarithmic function to determine this factor if anybody wants to see my 23 page thesis and accompanying data spreadsheets...

Something that has always been a mystery to me is the red and green reps versus the grey reps. I've only ever been able to give grey reps, and I thought that green and red reps could only be given by those who had been here for a certain amount of time, but there are users who have joined long after I did who can give green and red reps.

I understand that there used to be a visible rep meter for each user which reflected how much green or red rep they were given, and influenced how much their rep was worth.

you can only give colored rep if your rep is overall positive

Your rep power is proportional to your rep score. When two was first implemented with the vbulletin upgrade, everyone's rep was assigned based on their post count. It was wildly broken, Future Boy figured this out early on and used his brother Etsy's account to maximize their rep scores by pos repping each other while neg repping everyone else.

Bread Regal
08-27-2017, 05:50 PM
You also used to be able to see your entire rep history

duovamp
08-27-2017, 05:52 PM
It was the dumbest thing in the world and everybody bitched about it and Future Boy went around trying to make everybody red.

Bread Regal
08-27-2017, 05:53 PM
Like whenever I'd return with a new username future Boy would immediately slam me with 5 negs each on his and his brother's username and I haven't given anyone a green square in like a decade.

redbreegull
08-27-2017, 06:53 PM
so even though we haven't been able to see the rep meter for years the board actually is still keeping track of all the rep we have ever received?

and I can only give grey rep because future boy was a huge dick 10+ years ago?

Bread Regal
08-27-2017, 07:03 PM
correct

TuralyonW3
08-27-2017, 07:10 PM
Etsy's and Futureboy's seething cockdom went far beyond any rep issues. They were fuckin cartoon characters.

I like to use rep for private little shoutouts, nothing to do with the rep itself, without sending a full PM WHICH IS A FUCKING HASSLE and fills up our inboxes.

I didn't know that Future Boy and Esty were brothers. I guess the turd doesn't fall far from the anus.

this would probably destroy the board but i want this back

redbreegull

is there any way to reset everyone's rep? it would be nice to cleanse the board of futureboy's presence.

when anyone else thinks of future boy, do they feel the visceral compulsion to grab him by the back of his neck and force his face into dog shit?

Feeling pretty nauseous after that thread lol
there are some funny moments though

one boy who loved to insult me at orchestra dropped his violin last sunday at the dress rehearsal before the concert. he says it costs 15 grand. my mom heard from someone else that his parents remortaged their house to buy it for him. the scroll of the violin cracked and that's considered pretty major. he cried. :D:D:D:D i'm so happy because he gives me a hard time. that's partly why i say boys are annoying

well aren't we a vindictive little beast

most of my heinous problematic posting ended at age 18 in about 2003. luckily there is not much from before then.

i could have easily turned out a lot worse. the web was a fucked up wild west back then, especially for young girls.

though it's still kind of messed up. my 10 y.o. niece has a closely monitored fb account now. she's extremely precocious (170 IQ, reads at 12th grade level), but still doesn't have the world experience to know when people are being dishonest online.

she was researching the confederate statue controversy and was already led astray by conservative news sources that go through all the usual "heritage not hate" bullshit.

i'm concerned for her.

That's the main problem: lack of moral compass or experiential wherewithal at that age.

her mom's got it under control and is very involved without being a helicopter parent. she goes to a good school for gifted kids so she's got a lot of good role models in her life.

since i have jstor access still i'm thinking of printing out relevant articles she might be interested in. i dunno if that's too dry for a kid her age no matter how smart she is.
