That is because any funny comments posted now are deemed off topic and swiftly removed by the god awful mods.

It was terrible long before you arrived. It's a well known fact that TSR became crap the hour they changed the rep system.

you also aren't allowed to post anything which might offend people in the slightest. So basically, you can't post anything anymore. It's got to be the most PC forum on the whole internet.

But didn't the research stats show that after the trial period show there was an increase of posts in previously inactive areas, creation of threads and more new accounts

I joined about a month ago and my experience has been quite bizarre. What's even more strange is the amount of reputation points he gained.

1) Correlation does not equal causation. Especially using 3 months of data.

2) If the quality of posts or threads have not increased then who cares if there are more posts.

3) Why would anyone open an account because of the rep system?

Lots of the new accounts were dupes, "why the **** don't people in their 20s join social groups?"

Yh, the eradication of the rep system has meant that TSR has become flooded with master trolls.

I don't understand the new rep system. When it tells me I have a new rep, what's the number next to it for?

I'd disagree, I don't think rep has anything to do with trolls, if someone is going to troll they are hardly going to care about rep.

OH, BUT MR IDLE :hand:

Rep might not affect the crazy trolls, but the normal members with an inner troll were kept in line by the presence of rep, IMO.

It's a number on a screen at the end of the day.

If someone is repeatedly trolling they are going to get banned.

.
Rep tells the mods which posters the community thinks are trolls. 100,000 heads are better than 10. If you ban a poster with 8 green gems you're doing something wrong. If you haven't banned a poster with 8 red gems, you're doing something wrong.

and yet Jimbo is still here.
