  • Its new a feature on the message board if you get a lot of Reputation your just cool.. though if you reach -99999 Reputation you get poked in the eye with a pointy stick.

    The options are Bless or Curse. 

    If you Bless users for being awesome their Reputation goes up 1 point.

    If you Curse them for being stupid or dumb it goes down 1 point.

    Each user can only Bless or Curse once every hour! 

    A user needs to have a minimum of 30 posts to be able to Bless or Curse. :o

  • Why don't you change back to a black background with white text?

    We would be able to see how the pointy stick works then (if it wasn't grey...)

  • Careful there Edward Bear, your 'nil points' is in significant danger of slipping into negative figures thus your reputation will be tarnished. You will be on that slippery road to the pointy stick unless you buck your ideas up my friend.
    You must embrace the technological marvels of the internet generation and go with the flow. It simply has nothing to do with an indeterminate number of shoe repairers.
    If we lose 'reputation' we may end up with karma coming back.  :)

  • The "reputation" feature has some potential for being an indicator  of public opinion if only fixing could be  prevented.  But in reality, as a measure of public opinion it has many similarities to  the the Iranian elections.  George Bush no more deserves  his  -16 score than Orange deserves his +10.  While it might just (only just) be conceivable that George has offended 16 people, it is nigh on impossible, in the real world, to contemplate that Orange could have 10 friends. 

    The only conclusion to draw (using the  Iran metaphor) is that  the Supreme Ayatollah  has  rigged the system to settle a score against his  advisory George  Bush and that he either owes money to Orange or he is married to his mother.

    It is a fun feature, so let's not treat it as something to be taken seriously.

    Yes its been quite a while, I have dropped in from time to time as guest just to have a quick look whats going on. Not a lot by the looks of things. I will miss the old El Patio, one of my favourite watering holes. Not coming to Tenerife this year as I went to Australia for 4 weeks back in February - no hols left! I have been advertising my Timeshare holiday weeks for this year at a bargain price, virtually half of the maintenance cost or best offer - no takers so it looks like they are going to waste! If people wont spend ?400 quid for two weeks accommodation I shudder to think how the peeps who are charging ?350 per week are doing. No wonder LG is quiet. The exchange rate and the credit crunch is taking its toll. I read about how much the greedy landlords are charging for bars and restaurants, have they never heard of laws of diminishing returns? Surely its better to have some income than none at all. There should never be empty business premises.  :(

  • Oh conceited one pray tell why George Bush is minus 18 when he has only got 18 postings. I understood you to say that you only qualified for your silly little game with 30 posts. I suggest that you get your head down and start earning your employers some much needed money.

  • Dear Edward,
    My understanding of the rules of this newest of games is that anyone who has 30 posts can curse or bless whoever they like, even poor misunderstood souls such as yourself and George Bush. Those with less than 30 posts to their name  can do nothing in their defence. It is but a game but Orange seems to be as blessed as the cheesemakers!
    Things working in mysterious ways and only a conspiracy theorist might come up with the idea of multiple personalities gaining an unfair advantage ...
    Heck, it's only a mere trifle of a game but is prompting more posts than the state of the economy.
    Your minus figure in reputation in no way refelects upon your standing as a much respected and revered elder of the board. Tarnished reputation is obviously causing you great angst, misery and gnashing of teeth.

  • George Bush remains an active member so he has not been banned.

    The reputation feature is a form of regulation through which individual members can show their approval or displeasure, so in theory, it should not cause any injustice. However, rightly or wrongly there is a perception among some message board members that  there has been irregular interference in the voting  and that George Bush apparently started the game with a substantial points  deficit because he made a witty but ill judged remark about the administrator.

    If George was penalised in this way then this is not necessarily a major problem because those of us who believe that he has been treated unfairly can bless his deficit away. But if he has been treated unfairly then he may continue to be treated unfairly, so no amount of blessing  would rectify the deficit.

    As gesture of goodwill perhaps George's deficit could be cleared  in order to clear the air.

  • George Bush has been temporally banned! it expires 01-07-09 afternoon

    I warned him before, he obviously didn't get the message.

    An administrators job is to look after the message board and keep it up to date etc..

    If a user does not like something fine all you have to do is say so we understand, but what we don't like is users being sarcastic and trying to cause trouble like George Bush.

    I'm going to be honest and say that i cursed George Bush 2 times, i didn't like 2 of his posts (1 of them has been deleted), they where directed to me in a sarcastic way so i think that is fair on my behalf.

    Why should i have to put up with it, I'm an administrator not an every day user.

    Now he has about -17 Reputation so other people are cursing George Bush i don't know who or why but I'm sure there is someone if not a lot of people out there that knows.
