RE: I call for more repping powers for regular members
Magoo, I don't see it happening. The logistics of it don't make sense.

If we upped the regular user rep ability, then we would have to up the Vets', Mods', SMs', and Admins' ability as well. This would cause rep inflation... which we've already seen when we upped the amount of rep we could give in a day.

A year ago, 20 rep was a big deal... you barely saw it.

Plus, there is the whole recoding thing...

Geez, I wouldn't call it arbitrary. Smile

RE: I call for more repping powers for regular members
Only those who show signs of stigmata may wield over +1 rep.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Egor, you have an annoyingly dirty mouth sometimes, but I don't think you will show up with a butcher knife in my bedroom one night.

Some others, I am not so sure about.

If there are bannings, I am sure the motivation will be to protect free speech and the membership, and not because someone has irrational thoughts or bad manners.

You want to be like all the other atheist forums I've been banned from? Fine, they're dead in the water. They're boring. No one posts, and the posts that are made are made by moderator sock puppets to try to spur discussion.

"What has a Christian done that's pissed you off"

"What would Jesus think of Justin Beiber?"

Without theists to argue with, you're nothing.

Just my two cents.
What the fuck does this have to do with repping?

Dear god sometimes I wonder if you're even really thinking, you bitch more than my pregnant friend, but you make less sense. If you're afraid about being banned (which is unlikely looking over the FZU media debate) then you can make your little website.

You're nothing without us, so why leave when you're not going to be banned? Tongue

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

Pointless reputation inflation would ensue.

Exactly. And aren't you a moderator now?

You don't know.

But I don't care, anymore. In 2012, I donated $110 to the forum and bought Seth's book. And I only started donating in October. And you know what? I know Chas doesn't care about that. I've been banned from cliquish groups before and tried to buy my way back in, but nope--they didn't care and they didn't want my money. The atheists want this group and they want to take it over and make it like every other group out there--a mossoleum.

It's not about being banned. It's about the fact that there won't be any reason to be here anymore. When Stark Raving was around, I was very impressed. My whole outlook on atheism changed. But now with Chas? Sorry but that effeminate bitch at the helm? This won't be a cool place to be. And cool is all that counts. Cool

Wow, you have no sense of humor or sense of proportion. Sad, really. Drinking Beverage


"Effeminate bitch"? Really?

It will take time to build my forum's membership, but my forum is first and foremost a writer's forum. Religious and Political debate, and probably Health are added to get writers writing. Most people who have strong opinions on a topic also envision writing a book about those opinions. My forum will be the perfect place for them to be.
