    You have the posters who pretty much rep whore it and beg for rep as it means that their opinion on the site suddenly becomes valid if they have 3 green gems. :rolleyes: Then you get posts from non suscribers accusing (the wrong person usually) of negging them as if these brownie points ensure your success in life :rofl: it's a damn shame
    I think its more in relation to how we take the person's post if they've more red gems or more green gems. You're right, they are only little pips on a screen, plus it seems as if you stray even a toe off the common line on here you're negged to oblivion.

    Though, I think I'm certainly more inclined take someone's word, example or statistic if they've more green then red gems. Especially on the common threads around here, though this is obviously not always the case I think those with lots of green gems actually construct arguments rather then piping in with some ridiculous comment.

    I do, however, take your point.

    Well, some people equate rep on the student room to real life reputation.

    You have five green gems....
    And? was 6 a few days ago but are you seriously trying to suggest that I rep whore it and I'm a hypocrite for complaining due to people liking what I say? It's a pretty flawed point if that's what you're trying to suggest

    All fair points. I am surprised to see you (as someone that's in the green) posting a thread like this, though.

    I have noticed that people in the red are far more likely to be negged than people in the green. Even if what they said wasn't that bad. People with green gems seem to be taken a lot more seriously.

    Basically, the rep system is to decide who's popular on this forum.

        Shame there's no more neg rep. Just makes my statement more valid. :rofl2::rofl::rofl3:
        But seriously why did they get rid of the ****, I wanted to give people neg rep to piss them off. Please take it back, if they change it back the first thing I'll do will be to ghost neg as many posts as possible for a week. I'll even neg my posts if it's possible :rofl:

        If it gets given, then that's cool. If not, not the end of the world.

        I guess some people can get obsessive over them and thus care loads? A sense of recognition and all that.

        I misread the title and thought you were having a go at rap music and came here about to bite your head off... but I agree about rep. It's a waste of time.

        I used to make sure I negged anyone who I ever saw complaining about getting a neg. Especially someone who edited a post to whine that someone negged them.
