    I liked the rep system, but every site I've been on I've seen it get abused. I've seen sites take away post counts too when people abused them. The truth is, everyone will know who is well respected and who isn't without having to look at a number next to their name.

    It's only about the number to the tramps. To everyone else it was a great way to acknowledge and give props for a good post.

    True, but if you limit reps per day and make it be spread around before being able to rep the same person again it could only be abused so much.

    Can't we just make the number go away while keeping the system?

    Good idea. The number never meant anything anyway. The acknowledgment was cool though. Sometimes you just want to say "good post" but don't have anything worthwhile to add to the thread. (I'm not a post-tramp either)

    It wasn't really abused until the "Unlimited Rep" option in vPlaza was discovered. I abused it for something to do. Kind of like pulling the legs off daddy long legs. :wink:

    Yea i gave out rep to posts i liked but i went into the rep tramps thread to give out rep when i was bored a couple times.Usually i gave out rep when someone either made me laugh or said something i liked.

    Let's be honest. If it wasn't for the rep mod, the tramp threads being aloud to stay open, and being able to bet multiple time on events with X2 payouts for both teams there would have been a lot less whoring around here. People understandably treat stuff like this like games even if it's wrong and messes crap up.

    I'm guilty myself. I took advantage of the betting during the NBA playoffs. I wanted to have enough money that I didn't have to worry about it every time I gave someone a gift. It was so in my face that even a noob like me noticed the loophole and I didn't resist.

    I'm going to bet all my dirty money (18,868,856) on the Brazil vs. USA game today, and I won't be using anymore loopholes should they be found in the future. Go USA! :beerbang:

    we cant control the rep issue
    but the bookies can control the betting issue which is totally unrelated to this topic :D

    the betting issue is a moot point. People's totals are so ridculously skewed, that changing the bets now would do nothing. I have 100+ million and I say scrap the whole vcash. If you are going to fix the way bets are made, then it would only mean something if you reset the point totals to zero.

    only a handful of users are at a point where the bets they place are meaningless.

    Starting everyone at zero may happen still.

    Zero would make even a football for a noob impossible to buy more than once a week.

    I may or not be a q***r eye wannabe, I don't know what that is, but it sounds kind of awesome to be honest Barl...

    Almost like a beer fried manatee...

    I like the gifts its a nice feature but starting vcash from 0 would kind of suck because the prices of gifts arent that cheap.

    Starting the vcash over would really suck.....considering I made my 1st million legit. Then HH felt sorry for me and gave me the rest......

    How about starting everyone at 25,000 or so?

    same thing with me but it was hh then media guy.I had about 1 million legit.

    On a side note about that, how does Mike S. only have 192,000 vCash if he's the one putting up the events?

    Are bookies allowed to bet?

    **********Automerged Doublepost**********

    I didn't feel sorry for you, I didn't like having all that cash on me with baskett walking the streets.
