To use a very simplistic summary:

Member A had 2,500 points based on TWO "votes" worth 1,125 points each. Under the new system he gets...2 points.

Member B also had 2,500 points, but his score was based on FIVE "votes" worth 500 points each. Under the new system he gets...5 points.

So, you won't see a straight comparison after the reset. But you do see absolute fairness to all members, old and new.

Backlogs of paperwork, piles of things on the to-do list.... and now another thing that I do for fun gets ten times as complicated as it was.

Thanks a lot.

No, you are absolutely incorrect. It's gotten vastly simpler. A positive rep = one point, a negative rep = -1. If ANYONE can even tell me how the other system worked, I'll be amazed.

Topless posters

Slug is your topless poster theory gender neutral? I believe there should be incentives for topless female posters but I won't press the issue. I might get a negative rep and lose a point.

Your photo is fine.

Your quote is fine.

You are not grasping the concept. We bribe Slug with rep not to post topless.
