    Cheers After missing out on it and best debater by 1 vote last year, it's nice to finally win something

    Congratulations on retaining best debater Adorno! It seems pretty amazing to me that, except for the addition of simontinsley this year, the order at the top is identical to last year - Adorno, me, (simontinsley), Melancholy. Congrats to Simon on winning best newcomer and breaking into our seeming little clique.

    Though at losing best bill by 1 to a joke (:p: to paddy) bill. But congrats, at least, unlikely most joke bills, it was actually funny!

      Lol at the neg for this post. Teaddict made an awful post in an argument that missed the argument entirely and twisted the other person's post, so I negged it. I'd love to see him explain what he took issue with in the above post that he negged, though my guess is he finds a random post to neg by anyone who negs him. Which kind of defeats the point of a post rating system (ie. where you reward someone for making a particularly good or bad post accordingly, rather than just hitting out at anyone that takes issue with a post you make).

      Aye but the post rating system is a bit ****.

      True. The number of times I've wanted to rep someone and been told I need to rep people in between, despite the fact a month has passed since I last repped them. I just don't rep that often as there are only a limited number of things I see that are rep worthy, and only posting in a few parts of the site they tend to come from a limited number of people (ie. GOGs, HoCers and the occasional mod or sub). So every now and then I have to search for some decent/indecent posts to rep elsewhere so I can continue to rep in the areas I actually use!

      The especially silly thing in this case was that it wouldn't let me neg Teaddict when he first made the post because I'd pos-repped him a few weeks before and hadn't repped enough people in between!

      I'm the same. I've now taken to stalking H&R as there's a load of neg-worthy crap in there just to get back to the position where I can rep Alba or Potty again. It shouldn't be like that and I really don't think that kind of thing is what RK et al had in mind.

      Don't worry, he did it to me earlier today. Hence why I subbed. It was such an inocuous post to get negged that I wanted to know who and challenge them on it.

      I think you're spot on. I've raised it with the mods, though having seen RK's huge list of bugs to solve I think it's a way down their list of priorities.

      Why don't they just let anyone, not just subs, turn it off? That'll solve a lot of arguments!
