I'm not understanding. Did it hurt your eyes to look at it?

I'd LOVE to have one of those red negative rep squares. Those were the days.

GBurton had one. Lucky bastard.

The problem is, while one may be impressed by the quality of participation today, give the internet community the ability to sling a down-rep and it attracts the personalities that like to do it.

I find any rep to be a bit silly. I like the 'like' feature. It can mean just about anything from 'I agree with what you said' to 'you said it well', it isn't confined to suggesting the poster deserves creds.
PS - I think things around here are going along just fine.

Re: Increase in the number of Moderators

I rarely have my posts changed, nor get banned. Clearly there aren't enough moderators

Heh, I used to administrate and moderate a forum with 5000 *very* active members, the mods here seem to do a decent job as far as I am concerned. I respect their decisions as I know from experience that they aren't decisions that are made lightly and without considerable thought.
If the mods/admin think they need more help, fine, if they don't, fine.
