If you feel like you got unfair rep, contact ImCoolBeans or Scarface. There is no guarantee they will be removed, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Also, rep does not define whether or not you're a bad person, although generally if someone has a lot of red blocks they are unpopular. But you shouldn't make a big deal out of it.

Please also keep in mind that it is fair to give someone -rep if they disagree with what you post. Well, I don't think it's fair but everyone else seems to think so. In the end, rep doesn't really matter anyway so don't worry too much about it.

You could always disable your rep. That or You could contact an admin if you think you got unfair rep.

There are sadly a lot of immature people on this site that hate to hear anything against their personal belief. Its sad, but that's what comes when you have teenagers and an anonymous rep system.

who cares about rep anyways? its nothing but a arbitrary way to see if someone is helpful or not (or if they agree or whatever) with what you write. if you write what you think is a good opinion, advice,etc. then the fact that people somehow rate what you write should be secondary.

It doesn't mean all that much, but people look at it, and it makes a difference on how they perceive you to be.

sadly, thats what i believe happens in this forums. if people here that come looking for help, advice, opinions, a place to discuss ideas, etc perceive you and what you tell them differently because of a little number under your username then they are just stupid. i dont look at rep of the people who replied on a thread when im reading because it doesnt define how good or useful can the message be and i think people shouldnt either.

I only like the rep because it fills that void between posts and those little buttons underneath. Other than that, I couldn't give a lesser shit about it.

People do get quite nasty with rep, and take it so personally. Seriously, is it a popularity contest or something? No. The only thing you're getting is a big ego if you think having the highest rep is the most important thing ever.

exactly. i cant remember exactly when (its been a while) but there used to be people asking for rep on their replies or their signatures. its not like having more rep is going to make you better on any level. why should someone even care how much rep they have? i have no idea

its being discussed and moving towards action. the reputation system is ridiculous in more ways than i can say. people can't handle it, there's wont be anything replacing it either. there's absolutely no use for it to be on a site like this, it makes absolutely no difference because why would you need a pat on the back for helping people? shouldn't that just be done out of the desire to do good? someones epenis however big or small makes no difference to me because from the amount of pm's i get about it, most dont know how to use it. i'm gonna get rid of it, the first chance i have enough time to do it.

The simple fix is to remove the ability to negative rep people, rather than remove a system that encourages activity and positive contribution. That is a feature on vBulletin that is often overlooked.
