Ok, I forgot that incident anyways. No hard feeling for that guy as well.

It's finally happened: someone announcing that he's giving positive reputation to another poster just for agreeing with him. I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner.

I missed that, even though I was part of the thread originally. That one degenerated fast, which is why I lost interest.

FWIW, the "This is exactly what I was trying to say" leads me to believe that it wasn't simply that another member agreed with him but that he was able to succinctly articulate the thought he had.

I agree. I have recently + rep for someone saying something I was unsure of:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post4152570

I wanted to post what they posted, but was unsure and knowing that in the past I have been scolded for posting things that were not quite correct, I didn't want to post anything I was unsure about. Thinking on this a bit, maybe I shouldn't be so reserved, it's just my opinion or impression after all ... I can post it.

The way I approach that situation is by simply qualifying any answers I'm unsure about with: "I'm not entirely sure, but I think....", "I believe...", or some similar wording that shows that I might in fact be talking complete bollocks. As long as you don't present a wrong answer in a way that makes it sound like gospel then I think you'd be reasonably scold-proof.

reputation system

I'm never short of an opinion, however wrong, so; if you want to protect the vulnerable from drivel, this is a laudable goal but will not those that fear exposure just opt out?
What you propose is democratic, perhaps the opted out should be indicated when replying to a post, if that does not smack too much of pink triangles or stars of David?

Fred.

Fred - re: opting out: if you hover over the reputation square in GazL's post, you can see that it's disabled. Is that the sort of thing you meant?

Can this be considered another case of misuse of down Rep ?

The newbie here with all good intentions, knowing the thread is old, tried to provide a better (in his view point) solution!

and what surprises me is the fact that the "OTHER" senior member in picture is still the same

I think so. Especially since the senior member was given full credit for his contribution within Pencils' solution. I think it was a very crappy thing to do.

Yup, the same thing. I have applied the same solution. Until a better one is proposed, I will continue to do so.

This one is quite bad because Pencils took all that time to write that howto, and then he was negative repped for it. This MensaWater should be investigated and kept an eye on.

I told you previously too, down repping "him" will not help, it is important for the "root" to have a talk with him.

Hi,

I remember looking at my rep. I noticed a rep from MensaWaters before but not now. Just now checked the rep, found only the current reps. No way of scrolling back or doing a full list of the rep. At least I cannot seem to find it or how. My profile only shows 10 and User Control Panel only shows 20. Why? If someone is going to rep another then I should have the ability to see all of the list, not keep pushing onto the stack and not having the abilities to move through that stack to view.

I've looked and cannot find the means to show all. Anyone?

I didn't find a way either. That would be nice to see.
