If thats all that mattered to you in these forums, well that says a lot about you, doesn't it.

I've been trying to find a solution, while you have become fanboys to your cause.

If you want to leave it's up to you.

If you want to find a solution, Lets talk.

Location: gone, unless my rep dont come back!
i come here to post my art, this is a better place to post because you dont just get words, i get more aknoldgement(dont care about spelling) in the form of reputation, i do not get enjoyment out of people saying 'thats great', i doubt you have ever felt the feeling that you get something in return for something you have spent countless hours or days working on. if you have never felt this you will not understand.

Ask yourselves why do you come here? Is it so you can get more little green things next to your name? or is it to post and talk and discuss with other members? i understand that attaining rep is good, i enjoyed getting a rep boost, but its not the thing i come here for! i have learnt soooo much from coming here! i hope you all have too! rep is not what you should come here for! if it is then youve got issues and need to look at yourself in the mirror gentlemen!
I understand what you're saying B/S, but after most of the forum members made some complaints; some moderators, won't mention any names, called us fair-weather friends and said that ucp would be better off without us. Personally, I enjoyed reputation, and it is a numerical value showing how much of a contribution someone had made to the forums. For example, Werty searched his heart out looking for Enzo pictures to satisfy us, and a thank you could be given to him in positive rep. Now members will be classified by post count, so I think a new, larger problem will arise.

IB4R, these threads and posts ARE talking. The moderators don't seem to budge though. I don't have too much of a problem not seeing reputation next to my name, but it will bring about bigger problems. (ex. Classifications according to the number of posts you have instead of how much reputation you have.... i've made this point at least 5 times.)

Why did he search his heart out lookin for enzo pics? was it for his own interests? for your intersts? or for a little number next his name?

Lets get things in perspective here? are we here to give each other little pats on the back and goodonyamate style things? or are we here because we share a love of cars and want to help each other out?

If you want reputation, try to tell all those who abuse it to stop.

If you want to deal with the hordes of people who complain about how they never get enough rep or they are unfairly treated, then feel free. We are trying to make the forums a better place for all, not just those who feel like they are feeling mistreated.

I had 106 rep.
Egg Nog had 145
Matra had 176.

They all gave it up so that the forums would run better. why can't you guys?

And only you guys will classify by post count. The rest of us will just have to go by content. Even high rep owners have had the occasional bad post.

I'm open to Ideas OUTSIDE reinstating the rep system. Otherwise i'm not answering this thread, now I feel like i'm being villifyed.

If you need something Concrete to say "Yes, I'm a good person on these forums" then you obviously are insecure in your position. Your all really valuble people, and i apologise for my earlier comment, but if all you want is rep, try Supercars.net.

Please guys. Think of what we really came here for. To interact with people, learn about cars, talk about cars. Not to earn green squares!! Does it really matter? Can't we just PM or post and say what we need to say?

i like getting postive feedback, i dont care about the numbers.

How about we bring back giving rep, but instead we don't have numbers, just that little place where it tells you what you got rep for! What I mean is, just the feedback, not the numbers.

@wall

personally i come here to gain and share knowledge and the reputation issue is not the be-all or end-all for me. however, the thing i most liked about it was being able to show respect with it to other members. not so much a reward thing, but just acknowledgement of wisdom or skill shared with others. without it, i feel we loose the better form of acknowledging each others postitive contribution...

Werty didn't have to post those pics, he satisfied the public by sharing his countless number of pictures. I think the time he spent doing that deserves a rep point.

I'd like to see a list of people who complained about not having rep. The only person I can think of is Karrman, but I might even be mistaken with that.

We could even go like Ebay and have like Postive Feedback 94% as an example.. Maybe that would be less controversial..
