  • I love the feedback system in Cathinfo :jumping2:.

    I think one of the many things that make the other forums quite boring is the lack of feedback.

    I also love it that in CI you get to see how many members and guests are reading each particular thread at all times. It makes it a very active forum all day long. The other forums do not have that feature. 
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • FYI, For $39.95, CI has a reputation score restoration program.

    You fill out a brief application and after review, your popularity ratio is upwardly adjusted.

    .
    So THAT'S what Matthew is talking about when he says he's "a programmer?!?!"

    No, he made it seem like his monarchy is responsive to a good idea suggested by a member, which it is.
    I'd like to take credit for it, but Matthew had the good idea all by himself.  His solution had never even occurred to me.  All I did was express my concerns and ask him to think and pray about the problem.  It turns out that he had already noticed it and been planning to do something. 

    My request only affected the timing of something that he was going to do anyhow.  It was not accurate to characterize that as him obeying me.

    And how about your tantrum -- any reasons for you to be cranky? Or is that your normal state?
    What tantrum?
    I made a suggestion.
    Have I ever complained about my rating? No.
    Jaynek's "suggestion" got an instant response.  Mine is not a "good" one? Hardly.
    Pax Vobis is right: people want to be liked. The "reputation" label under usernames gives bad/erroneous impressions.
    All the flat earth members have skewed "reputations." And it isn't because they are "unlikable."

    Oh, look!
    It seems I am eligible to downvote you again.
    It would be nice if my vote merely disagreed with what you said, rather than damaged your REPUTATION.

    I think the reputation system might carry a penalty for repeated downvotes.  This was true on another board.

    Honey bees also suffer by stinging others. After the honey bee stings, it dies.

    In other words, Smedley, your positive reputation might have been much higher had you not chosen to use the downvote feature so often.
    Lord have mercy.

    People on both sides of virtually every controversy on this forum get upvotes from those who agree and downvotes from those who disagree.  Anyone engaging in debate here is "skewed" in this way.  Except it isn't skewing, it is working the way it supposed to.

    Your have the reputation you do because you are an extremely unpleasant poster.  No other flat-earther has a score comparable to yours. There are enough flat-earthers giving out upvotes to each other to make decent scores possible.  I don't think anyone on this forum besides you has a 4 to 1 down:up ratio.

    Revealing information from pms is considered dishonourable. This is the sort of thing that has lead to the score you have.  It is not because you are a flat earther.  You deserve your repuation.

    If any people care about my reputation score (and that is a big if) they probably also realize that the vast majority of my downvotes come from disgruntled flat-earthers.  Why would it matter to me?

    Likewise.
    It was interesting to hear your condescending know it all reputation precedes you for years across other boards.
    Why is Maria Regina claiming Matthew has "pets" then shows up here to bash me? That's dishonorable.Is she his pet? Are you his pet?
    My suggestion was a good one, even if you and she don't like it.

  • My “want to be liked” comment was more related to social media and many people’s incessant need for approval.  While I do think the “thumbs up/down” button is related to this, it’s not the same since you can’t see who voted for/against you.  And many times a post gets no feedback, unlike the goal of social media which is feedback on EVERYTHING.  It’s somewhat similar but not really.

    Personally, it’s nice to see some posts get upvoted if I spent some time with research and writing it.  Otherwise I don’t care.
