    back 75-90 days only.

    You can blame this on 3, maybe 4, particular users who abuse this feature.

    Its sad that it takes only 3 or 4 bad apples for the admins to make drastic changes to the site. You could have just banned them. (unless you're talking about me) :D

    So then after these 75-90 days, then there will be no more rep feature? (sorry for the stupid question, i'm pretty tired)

    Can someone explain what this means? Any pos or neg rep received in the last 75-90 days was lost? Pos or neg rep received in the last 75-90 days is the only rep that one still has? I just lost a boatload, so I'm confused.

    Thanks.

    Bummer I was at 3200 legitimately.

    Is this policy in effect all over BS, or just specific forums? If it is specific, how do you determine who and how many to take off?

    Cool, I just had my terminal glowing nipple yesterday, and those 60 days brought a lot of well earned reps... :(

    I feel like Toyota who conceived a V12 F1 engine only for the FIA to tell them that they were suddenly only allowing V10 engines...

    From 410 to 103

    Any way that we can keep the green nipples we've earned even if it has to be cleared?

    I have a feeling that would defeat the purpose.

    I am pissed. Many people cheated on the rep points. I earned every single one of them and now I am back to 300 points.

    You bastards. Where did my rep go? It vanished 2 hours ago!

    Oh well. I can rebuild.

    I now have to gain 2 more light ones, to get it back to what it was...

    Still. I think I lost less than I thought I would... :)

    Carry on...

    I was wondering what happened. Thanks for the info Huss.

    1900+ to 855
    I was looking forward to 2000...because its big and round. :D

    how does one go about abusing the rep feature? Does the system shut down because kenn and andy get way too much rep?
