Just for the record, I do not want any more rep.

Seems several of the humor impaired have been taking me seriously, despite my numerous admonitions to not do so.

And since I am smiley impaired, and have this compulsion to reply with tongue in cheek often, resulting in people taking offense when none is intended, I'll be keeping my posting to a minimum.

You win, Dale.

This is old stuff, right? I had the impression that this topic died a while ago and withered away...

I hope you didn't think I took any offense to your posts. None was taken and I was simply trying to clarify for my own mind why things were the way they were. I also hope you continue posting as usual. You have been very helpful to me in several situations. Take care Uncle Mark.

Just for the record Brooko's post in this thread was back in January. But he does stop in once in a while. I concur he is missed.

I'm still around. I usually log-in at least every couple of days just to see how things are going. Work has slowed a little so I finally have more time on my hands. During our Winter, our sales always slow down a bit.

Haven't had time to 'play' much with Linux over the last 6 months or so. I have installed MEPIS on a co-workers home machine + on my parents machine (and the kids are also running a dual boot MEPIS/WinXP). In all cases - the MEPIS installs are running great.

The only reason I'm not running it on the main rig at home was due to sound issues. I've got back into my music again (very relaxing) and run an external USB DAC/amp to full sized headphones. It works on straight music (amarok/foobar) - but not with video or youtube. So I installed Debian - it all works. Will try again with MEPIS when 12 is released. In the meantime Debian ticks all the boxes.

Back on topic - I do think the rep has it's uses. It's a pity it can't be tied into the 'thanks' button (thanking adds rep) like the old system - it would be a lot better. The one thing I'd suggest to consider - is for the senior members to do what I did before I left and cut their own rep to a more meaningful level. That's a personal choice though. For the record, I cut mine by 25000 points - mainly because the high rep I had felt a little false given the new system.

Under the old system rep was earned a lot faster (through the thanks button). Under the new system it is very slow. Both are good but they should be on an even footing (ie cut the base back on the existing). Food for thought anyway.

Hope everyone well.

H Brooko,

Glad you dropped in. I agree there is an imbalance with the old system. But if the cut back for senior members is voluntary then an imbalance still exists with some cutting and others not. I fail to see why the whole thing is so controversial. While I agree rep has its purposes I am tempted to just disable it to avoid the ongoing controversy that seems to pop up on a regular basis.

PS. As you know, but others may not be aware, rep and thanks are separate modules and cannot be tied together.

Leave it alone. I'm done.

Reverse Psychology aay?

Or is it that the Humor Impaired have damaged the 'Fabric of the Universe'? (I think I will attempt to repair it by asking for rep for uncle mark for select posts)

Thanks uncle mark for bringing this to the attention of 'those who will answer the call'.
