    Default The FPG Community Reputation Board

    The Community Reputation Board.

    There are many members on here who don't use this or don't like it. There are plenty who don't know it's there or how it even works.

    In a nutshell when you click on the asterisk mark at the bottom left of any post you can leave reputation for that user by saying you approve of or disapprove of their post. Approval gives positive reputation and disapproval gives negative reputation to that user. Those comments accrue in number and that is the Rep Power number that you see at the bottom of your avatar. When you're signed in you can click on Settings at the top of the page to see details about your own reputation and what your total is.

    Yes it can be divisive and that's why many don't ever say whether they approve of or disapprove of a post. It can be slightly more "noticeable" than just clicking on "Thanks".

    As you would expect, the Reputation Board on FPG has a couple of an inbuilt features. The first makes it impossible for one user to repeatedly leave reputation for another user. That would be totally unacceptable for everyone. Therefore, once you have left any sort of reputation for someone, you have to leave more reputation, for at least 21 other users, before you can leave repeat reputation for that same user. The legend comes up as "You must spread some reputation around before leaving it for .... again."

    The second inbuilt feature is that you can't leave more than 10 reputation comments in one day. A legend comes up and tells you that you have left the maximum reputation you can leave and you have to wait for at least 24 hours before leaving any more.

    I'm going slightly off topic here by way of an explanation of what is to come:

    As some of you may already be aware "Pterodactylus" answered a question about posting images on the Mystery Ink #45,46 and 47 thread. I also posted an answer to that question. Pterodactylus then thought it appropriate to tell me that neither I (nor anyone else apparently) should attempt to answer a question that he has already answered:
    "I know pseudo admin Chrissy does not read it but.

    Chrissy, it really bugs us when you try to answer an already addressed thing (happens so often)
    If you canít follow threads because you blocked half of the users and therefor canít follow, then just donít post.
    Easy, isnít it?"


    Just for the record, and for accuracy, there was never an "us" - just him, and he's the only user I've blocked on that thread. However, I posted a factual reply that some will have read. Instead of "being the better person" by leaving it and letting it drop, he has rambled on and on in a rage and everything that he has posted on that thread since my reply has either been a direct personal insult or has been aimed at me as an oblique personal insult. I've been automatically promoted to being the "better person" by not stooping to his level or making any reference to his vindictive attacks since my reply. He did, however, reply: "I never insult members here, prove me wrong if you can."

    Then he posted another post where he called me a "prude b---h" (he reluctantly edited it from the full word following a request from one of his friends) and another user posted a reply to that saying that not everyone liked his degrading paintings of women. Pterodactylus then posted a reply that is an insult to that user and is certain proof that he has insulted another user.

    Back to topic

    For that post I left him negative reputation as I didn't approve of the post, quoting it as his requested proof that he insulted another user.

    Now Edited !0/10/22: Since he received that negative reputation comment from me, he has left reputation comments continually, at a rate of 10 per day, so that he could leave me another negative reputation comment for this post today. He has also left another 10 comments so it looks like his rage and his board manipulation is set to continue.

    At least while he is picking on me he isn't picking on anyone else but let us all hope that his vindictive games will be over soon.

    So you want starting a war, you can have one, vicious creature.
    Of course you will get negative scores on your insulting posts, just like you using this instrument to spread you lies.
    Do you think the members here are stupid and do not look through your intentions?

    @All
    Notice who started here to insult and spread venom.
    Please start to report her vicious, discrediting and insulting posts like the following.
    She should not come through to poison our community here.

    Pterodactylus you are absolutely correct that you're on my ignore list and I don't read your posts because they are never worth reading. Mainly because you always make complaints about other members' and regularly post insults on other members' posts. Then even when someone makes polite requests for you to delete these insults you completely ignore them. That is your attitude to members here. Sling insults around everywhere and be as aggressive as you possibly can.

    You seem to find it an amusement to always refer to me as some sort of an admin or moderator which I'm not. I believe it must be because it's something you covet but will never achieve due to the over-aggressive type of person you are. Unlike you I merely try my very best to be helpful which you wouldn't understand because it's not one of your character traits.

    You just post huge images all over the place, repeating them everywhere, many of which would be described as "deviant" from the Deviant Art web-site that you post them from, and many of which some believe could almost be described as "soft porn". This is why people add you to their Ignore lists. They don't want to see all of this crazy stuff on a fountain pen forum.

    Whether my advice was right or wrong it was posted helpfully to assist another member. The forum FAQ sets out the ways to post an image. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with you whether I'm answering a post that you, behaving as God Almighty again, have already posted an answer to therefore no-one else can answer or make any comment according to you. I don't know who the hell you think you are but it's not up to you whether I post on here or not.

    Every member on this forum can post any response they wish in order to try to help or answer something posted by any other member. Just because you post something that you think is an answer doesn't mean the subject is closed. In suggesting that you make it abundantly clear exactly what sort of a person you are to everyone.

    Apologies to everyone else on here that this post was off topic but this jerk needed telling for once.

I spoke only the truth and everyone else can see that. He forgot to post his first reply to my post so here it is:

    I donít have to go to details, everyone can see what a vicious frustrated person you seem to be.

    I never insult members here, prove me wrong if you can.
    If you donít like my posts, donít read them, personally I think yours are also often not helpful but vicious, trying make root against members you do not agree, in best case funny if not taken serious.
    This is the post that he posted after saying he never insulted members on here
    Donít play games here.

    Obvious you need that theater for whatever reason, we others are here to have fun with our hobby.
    As everybody can clearly see, you are here to create disorder and discredit.

    This will not work.
    Kind advice from the ďJerkĒ (everybody can see who started to insult and discredit).

    You found a new toy, the reputation board, fine with me, I can also play that, all day long.
    I donít care about a number beside my profile in opposite to you.

    I can already almost see you whining ďmy precious number Ö..Ē, maybe I will create a nice illustration for it, I already drew Gollum, so Iím prepared.

    Iím sorry what you become.

    I've edited my original post, deleted my subsequent one and tried talking to him and asking him to delete his two above replies and stop doing this but he says there will be no cease fire until I delete this thread even if only to an empty post. I won't do that as it has helped some people to understand how the rep. board works - well should work under normal use. Eric needs to come in and sort this out.
