    Rep-whores and off-topic dwellers close ranks and suppress the repression


    ~ Off-topic section is now restricted from using reputation.

    (no that is not a naked chick visible on the rim)

    I will not stand for this. I entreat you all to pledge yourself to this cause by squiggling a bright red cross across the alert box attached to the body of this post. Of course, I have already done it multiple times so I'm clean and cleansed of the stench, of repression.

    Let us pledge:
    "I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS," vile oppression of the general public.
    "I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS," formation and reinforcement of restrictions.
    "I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS," killjoy mentality to condemn us to gem-drought.
    "I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS," will be etched to the very fabric of your mind when I'm done with this anaphora.
    "I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS," rough treatment of posting criminals.

    NOW INTERCEPT THIS STALEMATE AND PICK UP ARMS,
    WE ARE MARCHING TO OUR DOOM WITH OUR HEADS HELD UP HIGH.
    ... AS IF WE HAD TORTICOLLIS OR SOMETHING.

    Unforgivable! Why this opression makes me want to burn something! Why we need to unite and stand up against this fascist opression before it turns even more totalitarian!

    Why? I mean seriously cutting rep from offtopic is like disallowing people to think better of someone because they made a funny joke. It just rubbish.

    To the gallows with this squeamish attempt to cut the cut-throat's throats!

    I will not stand for this.
    I will not bow to this.
    I will not kneel in correlation to this.
    I will not take a comfortable stroll in the name of this.
    I will not tuck my shirt for this...

    I am only against it.

    Really
    ...

    Reputation on off-topic is not only spread and others useless reputation (who's in every forum).

    If you ask for help about some problems you have and that somebody helps you to resolve them, how will you do to give reputation to thanks him for helping ?

    If you don't want that we're able to thanks people who help us, why you don't do that on all forums ???
    (i hope i haven't given you an idea)

    Honestly, the way I see it, removing the "functionality of rep" in this forum is paramount to useless, if someone want's to rep some other someone for something that someone did or said in the off-topic forum, they'll simply go to another forum that someone's posted in and rep them there >.>

    For my part, this is what the protest is about.
    - The uselessness of the change.

    I partly agree with this, and with other part I strongly disagree.

    The rep is meant to be gained by helping someone, not by making jokes.
    On the other hand, giving rep became like "likes" on facebook. It wasn't such a good idea to remove it. Either remove it from the beginning, or do not remove it at all, that's my opinion.

    = the argument of removing the possibility of giving rep+ to someone in the OFF-topic forum doesn''t exist ...or if it does it's made of bullshit anyway....

    So put back the option now!

    I agree with your last phrase Vunjo.

    The problem is from all the Off-topic rep (not the one from the off-topic section, but the rep without relation to the thread), the rep spread (what the interest of spreading rep to everyone ?) and others...

    Also, you can help people on off-topic too.
    If you want to know how to add a second screen on your comp and that someone helps you in the Computer Tech subforum, why wouldn't you give him rep for helping.
    If someone post a good song on the Your favorite song atm thread and that you discover it and like it, he kinda helped you (by giving you music that you like).

    Remove totally the rep wouldn't be a so good idea. By rep you can see if someone help others or is good and make ressources/maps that people enjoys (i.e.)

    Also, it's old good system from the hive and members are used to it.

    Off-topic is the only good remaining forum section on this site, you think I'm gonna rep some faggot who made a wc3 spell? The game is dead, this site is essentially an off-topic forum.

    if someone will rep from this forum then just go to forums that's rep enabled and put a comment like like >>> "from off-topic", Ralle will be pissed and disable all reps :p...
