    Thanks for the feedback, all. We're discussing it as we speak.

    Tragically, you probably believe that.

    However, you seem to be suggesting that the new system will be less objective. Why are you striving go be less objective when probably the biggest grievance most people have with the moderation style here is that it is not objective or impartial enough? Do you imagine that people will put their trust in your subjective opinions? If so, why bother to revamp the FAQ?
    I smell a smokescreen.

    Oh. So they are banning irony after all?
    Just as well only a handful of members appreciate it, I guess...

    While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.

    Oh, I look all around this forum and still see irony abounding.

    Maybe they'll crack down on it after the holidays.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Default fyi

    I was looking through the FAQ just now to see if any explanation has been added about the way the rep system has been modified, and found this:

    Name Changes: Information about Name Changes can be found in this thread.

    It made me wonder if initially someone meant to add a link to the name change thread in that statement (where it says “this thread”).

    Also, here is what is still in FAQ regarding “reputation”:

    What is reputation?
    Reputation is a way of rating users depending on the quality of their posts. If the administrators have enabled reputation, then the reputation icon will be visible in posts.
    Reputation may be positive , negative or neutral . Negative reputation may only be given if the administrator has enabled this. Neutral reputation is only given when the person giving reputation does not meet the criteria set by the administrator to affect someone else's reputation.
    How do I give reputation?
    To give reputation, click on the reputation icon in the relevant post. This will reveal a form to complete with the reputation type and the reason for giving the reputation. If negative reputation is disabled then it will not be displayed in this form. You may not give reputation for the same post twice.
    How do I know what reputation I have received?
    You can view the reputation that you have received in your User CP (User Control Panel) where it is displayed at the bottom of the User CP page. Here you will see the latest reputation that you have received and whether this is positive, negative or neutral. Your total reputation will be shown as series of reputation indicators in your posts and profile. The more positive your reputation, the more positive icons will be shown. The more negative your reputation the more negative icons will be shown.
    How much reputation is given? What is reputation power?
    If the administrator has enabled this, the amount of reputation that each user will give (or take away if negative) is shown in the user's posts as 'Reputation Power'. The value of the reputation power is determined by the administrator and may increase over time depending on the settings they have applied.
    What if I don't want anyone to see my reputation?
    You can disable the display of your reputation by going to your User CP and selecting Edit Options. On this page you will find a check box labelled 'Show Your Reputation Level'. Un-checking this box will remove the display of your reputation and replace it with the Reputation Disabled icon. You can still give and receive reputation while your reputation display is disabled.


    If no one wants to write a thing about how the rep system has been disabled and is used primarily to send short messages, then maybe just removing this explanation (which suggests the rep system is still active and is what it appears to be) would be a good idea.

    And now I can’t even remember what I went to FAQ for in the first place, but there might be a third thing that needs saying when I remember.
