Re: Awards!

there is already the photshop challenge. Most rep awards would be a good idea. Would encourage more nominations. Plus the mods can use their own discretion as to whether it's worthy of rep or not!

Re: Awards!

Re: Awards!

TBH I think this awards idea is a very bad idea.

There is already a fair bit of corruption on the forum (certain friendships reap certain rewards if you see what I mean), and this will just increase it. You'll find mods awarding their friends with awards, which aren't justified and this will just start arguments. Also it will encourage people to go into every section of the forum putting posts in topics where they don't know what they are talking about. We already have several people on the forum (who shall remain nameless), who go into the 'Punto' section for example and post in there when they don't own a Punto and never have, giving rubbish information.

We already have the trophy for donating and i think that is the only award we need, awarding people who love the forum and want to keep it running.

Please don't implement this award idea as it will just create rivalry and alienate people who have knowledge but are not being rewarded due to unfair voting.

Hope this makes sense to people,

Dave

you make it sound like there is a ff conspiracy

if a post has been reported for rep, or mods think its worthy of rep then its given

since become a mod, i have seen very little posts not being rewarded

Re: Awards!

Dave's post is true to a point. Certain sections of the forum are well moderated and others are ignored. It's not intentional, it's just true. There are a few people in some of the smaller and perhaps more specialised sections who have posted some very useful information and could contribute greatly to the forum but aren't thanked or given any reputation because there isn't a moderator or none of the moderators visit them. How many for example go in the X1/9 or Palio section? However I do sometimes look over the Punto section and post if I think I can help as a lot of issues occur across the marque and are familiar to Bravo/a and Cinq/ Sei owners as well. I will continue to do this and help where possible.

Don't worry Helz I wasn't talking about you Just certain people who provide duff useless information (mainly post count spammers).

Re: Awards!

Sorry, I was misunderstanding you there - in which case I think it's the mods who need to do some weeding out and spammers need to remember to spam in the right places
