    Payment under the table is acceptable to your IT department for exclusive access to certain things.



    Just remember to keep paying up for your protection, we would hate to see any one get hurt.

    I think madmatt has the most right now.. unless someone has caught up to him..

    saz is doing pretty well himself.. and I'm not doing too shabby either

    edit:
    *shrug* the rep system is fairly meaningless anyway. I believe in some other thread I expressed my views that it is flawed to begin with.. people that help the new people deserve a lot of credit, but the new users are the ones with the least amount of power. What difference does it make if I help all the new users of the forum with all their problems when they can only give me 1 point of rep?

    *shrug* I'll take what I can get.. but I won't obsess over it. :)

    Well negative rep had to be removed as people took it far too personally :)

    I honestly think the whole rep thing has gotten out of hand. People give it away WAY to easily, so the numbers are VERY inflated and its gotten to the point where it doesn't really mean anything anymore. The whole point imo is give rep to those who helpyou, that way they build up a... reputation of being a helpful and intelligent person. A new comer can glance at someones rep after they post a suggestion or something and know that they are most likely a trustworthy person and their advice most likely wont break something, waste their time, etc.

    I'll be honest too, I would say only about 25 - 40% of my rep is from actually helping people. The rest is all spammed from pointless stuff, birthdays, jokes, no reason, being cool, etc. Perhaps Rep should be approved by moderators?

    I hand out VERY little rep. Why? Because I feel that when I do rep it needs to count for something.

    I don't receive a whole lot of rep either. I like it that way. It means I am not getting random rep for crap. I like rep when I made a good post or point.

    I like that logic, but not sure having it approved by mods is reasonable. That would be a lot to tackle, but maybe give it a try if it really gets out of hand.
