But still, I agree on the part about the way the MeloMafia guys are acting after the case was brought up to the majority of the board.
While you're at it just give me their rep points. No need to just throw them away.ow them away.
Suddenly that's jumped up to 19 and 21 respectively, over the 2 and a half months with the least activity on the forums.
Im not looking for attention, I wouldnt mind if this thread got locked and put to rest. But your taking advantage of this oppertunity to get your name out there. You keep bringing up Team Starbury. Yes, i did give some green rep to Metro. And you seem to be jealous of that, sorry I dont think I gave you any green in a while.
^ I guess the STARMELO crew has been repping all (or almost all) regular posters, my rep also jumped from 6 to 8 within just two or three weeks; once I couldn't believe someone repped me for a meaningless post about Shump from a couple of months ago. I guess once rady's done with his work my rep will drop again, which is a good thing, because I didn't (and actually still don't) understand why the MeloMafia started this thing. Not that I care that much about rep points, I've got enough green for doing my job and what's more important, some top posters like rady and Crazy8s got my back because of what I've been doing for this board.

It's just amusing because back in the day you Team Starbury fellows did make a big deal about rep. I remember very clearly you guys bandying on about how your rep bars were bigger than other people's, it was one of your go-to moves when you felt threatened in a debate :P
That's why I said it's typical that Team Starbury members would be the ones behind a stunt like this.
Get my name out there? Where? I think 99% of the posters here know me and if they don't who cares?
I also don't care about metro or crazy or you or anyone getting more rep this ain't a personal thing, you're just undermining the whole system and why it's there and it's now either perma-screwed or going to take a lot of boring admin from rady to fix.
I agree with the suggestion above, scrap the rep system and bring a like system that shows publicly. Way easier and can't be abused as easily.
My rep points came from guys like Crazy8 and many others who I had a feud with in the past.
Can we just give rep points to rono and smokes so they can stop crying?
What is CA7's response to this thread? He's the biggest influence on the Melo movement here.
wow. i feel for everyone who feels affected by +/- rep.
I happen to like most posts by Starmelo group, KingStarf*cker, CA7 (the homo sperm), and others, but to gang up on folks just for having anti-melo opinions is wrong, and to green each other just for the sake of upping their rep is wrong too. Rady's probably doing the right thing by intervening and discounting current reps, but it's the future of the rep, and the future of the site that is the question at hand. that's for all to decide. Dzwons Son, Rono, iSayUggh, Crazydick8's, CA7, Oldtimer, Metro, etc, all put thought and time into their posts, and deserve green, and it would be nice to continue giving green to newbies who contribute in a positive way to the site. but for someone new who has an anti-Melo opinion to be neg-repped, why would they continue to post or frequent the site? it's like juvenile delinquents ganging up on someone for being different!
personally, I don't give a flying f*ck. it's a little green box. probably the wrong thing to say, politically speaking for a moderator, but I agree with NYk_uploaded, I care about the Knicks more than anything. the only green i really care about is Benjamin and Buds.
i'm thinking of starting a group called The Neggers, and anyone who joins will help me give neg rep based on stupid posts, unintelligible writing and poor grammar. watch out Kiyaman!
I dont know how Rady can disable our neg repping specifically when we werent even neg repping the respected posters. I gave Ron and Dzonswon green not that long ago.
But everything has to be legit in order for these dudes to respect themselves. Like i said before reguardless of who has how many rep points, we each have our own opionions on which posters are good and which ones are bad. Rep points tell us very little if anything.
And rep wars are very common, I was part of a Mayweather Mafia rep war on boxingscene and I also participated in rep wars on Hip hop sites. Nowhere here on KNicksonline does it say that its an infraction to comtemplate starting a rep war....and to excessively hand out green rep. Rady, what have i done that deserves punishment? I do not see any rules that I did not follow, I do not believe my neg repping ability should be disabled for any amount of time.
