View Full Version : Rep points?

06-22-2010, 12:09 PM
Anybody else having problems posting rep points? For several days, If I click on the up or down buttons, the page just hangs, and the point never registers. When I click on anything else, eventually an error message pops up that says "Problems Retrieving Data. Thought somebody in charge would want to know!

06-22-2010, 01:05 PM
Yeah, I cant post to your rep-points for pointing that out.... so yeah, I would say there is a problem.

06-22-2010, 02:10 PM
Same here, can't give points.

06-22-2010, 02:24 PM
I just tried to give u one Baal. Don't think it registered?? You were at 5

06-22-2010, 08:09 PM
Hey, this would have been a great way to rep-boost, huh? But no, at least my rep hasn't changed.

06-22-2010, 08:34 PM
and here I was thinking it was just me that was having this issue. I thought it was safari having issues or something as I just started using it as apposed to firefox recently.

Definitely a problem with the Rep system, tried for several days on different peeps and it wouldn't work. Will let Jeremy know if he doesn't see this thread in the next few days.

06-22-2010, 09:35 PM
awesome because I owe some people some rep points.

06-24-2010, 03:46 PM
I'm on it! Thanks for bringing this issue to my attention. Thanks for the email Steven.

It seems to be working now.

08-14-2010, 01:33 PM
Since I'm the one that brought it up, you'd think I was paying more attention to reps than I should. But, I was going to give somebody some ups yesterday (and today), and the rep system seems to be on the fritz again.

08-14-2010, 06:34 PM
i wasnt paying attn either but this caught my eye the other day lol


08-14-2010, 07:07 PM
I dont even know how to give "rep points". Is this the red [up] or [down] buttons?

08-14-2010, 07:26 PM

08-14-2010, 10:02 PM
Yeah, I was trying too, and it's messed up again - I'll email BuellXB if it's not fixed in a couple days.

08-24-2010, 05:43 PM
Rep points are acting up again, I've tried to give out points from my iPhone, and the laptop and both are getting error messages. [confused]

08-25-2010, 07:45 AM
I emailed Jeremy (BuellXB) so hopefully it'll get sorted. I had quite a few given out, but can't remember who they were.

08-27-2010, 07:41 PM
i have quite a few too. didnt start keeping track until a few days ago.

09-10-2010, 07:22 PM

09-10-2010, 07:32 PM

09-15-2010, 12:52 PM

09-15-2010, 01:00 PM

10-11-2010, 05:45 PM

10-11-2010, 06:27 PM
Still not working.....

10-25-2010, 06:01 PM
Shiiiiit sorry folks. Just realized this issue when I tried to give a few members rep points. Not sure how I've missed this for so long. I'll look into it.

10-25-2010, 07:32 PM
A nap is a wonderful thing, eh? [smirk]

11-03-2010, 04:42 PM
thanks for fixing the rep points buellxb [up]

11-08-2010, 02:57 PM
Looks like it's working for me. Please keep posting if you see other problems. Thanks!

01-05-2011, 01:17 PM
ok some one shoot me or something ...

I clicked on someones rep red[down] button and did not realize that person was unranked(until after i clicked red[down] rep button). now that user has 4294967295 rep points , so i am assuming this is why others have huge 4billion plus points.

is that correct or some other glich, if i am right thats why that have them.
it really means a NEGATIVE REP.

there went my rep points for sure.

how about have a negative rep point (ex; - 101 )instead..??.

01-05-2011, 01:28 PM
thats what happens and it will never come back.i hope he really pissed you off because his rep is f***ed now.:D

01-05-2011, 01:55 PM
Yeah of you -1 on an unranked member it goes ape ****. Then they will always be at the 4 billion number even if they straighten up and become a good member[smirk]

If I see an unranked member I leave it be that way they can prove themselves later on.

Thats because I stole all your rep points!!! hahahahahahahahaha!!!

01-05-2011, 02:32 PM
i dont think you should be able to take rep points for getting your feelings hurt or a difference of opinion just because someone disagrees with you dosnt mean they are wrong.

01-05-2011, 03:11 PM
Jobe i believe that your rep points is your phone number. [cool]
and if not its the highest number you can get using 32 bit binary.

Agreed, I will [down] only if someone is being belligerent and just destroying a thread. If someone were to add some thing that was wrong I dont see a reason to [down] them. Hell I posted some incorrect info just yesterday (lost a rep point almost immediately too) but I want to be corrected so that it just furthers my knowledge on things.

01-05-2011, 04:55 PM
that was mainly the reason X. being belligerent and just destroying a thread.


Hell I posted some incorrect info just yesterday (lost a rep point almost immediately too) but I want to be corrected so that it just furthers my knowledge on things.i dont mind that either,
but then what about these kinds;
i lost a rep point on a thread because some one disagreed with my opinon on using the right type and specs reccomended for engine oil & primary oil or better. every one has a diff opinion and prefrence on that subject.

whats next lose a rep point because i like a certain or because my bike is dirty , ok maybe dirty joking ..

sorry I f**Ked up the rep points. but surely there is a way to fix it . like i said i didnt see until i had already clicked it.
guess it really does matter or at least to me,
i know who's knowledge & experience to listen too and learn from here.other than the voices in my head they always come up with great mods and fixes for my buell, and the rocket to the moon.

01-05-2011, 05:19 PM
maybe we need a different rep points or rating system in place.

oh well.

move on.

02-07-2011, 11:24 AM
ok who is raping my rep points?? lol

Dont really care but some body is getting butt hurt by my comments and i was to who that might be [smirk]


02-07-2011, 11:57 AM
ok who is raping my rep points?? lol
noticedI had lost a couple from sat to sun as well, guess my stellar wit and 'outside the box' train of thought has derailed....
I should just neg myself to the point where I have a ba-jillion (oh so smrt!)

02-07-2011, 12:01 PM

Hmmm the gf may not approve.

Perhaps make the rep thing simular to ebay ratings. You get a separate page of a users reps points withen their profile page. On this page your rep's will be listed, if someone gives you a [up] or [down] it shows the thread and who gave the + or - rep point. And a summery box [up] = 98 [down] = 2 etc.

If you hold the people giving or taken them away accountable, they most likely will only leave +/- points if they strongly think so because it no longer would be them hiding behind anonymity and their name would be tagged with the [up] or [down] they gave someone. Maybe even add a small comment portion.

There is really no way to tell when you lost a rep point, or who it was that dinged you...You can be dinged for an old thread that you posted that someone came across from 3 months ago. all they have to do is click the little [down] button by your name...

I know the majority of the time you get or lose your rep points over something you said recently, but I can go to Extremelow's first post ever and decide I dont like the way he introduced himself so I'm giving him a big ol [down]

Is there not a way to maybe add a comments box for when you add or take rep from someone? kind of a reason for giving/taking it, and have it reviewed by the mods? I know that is asking a bit much from you guys (like you dont have enough on your plates already right??) but something like that so that maybe we can atleast see why our rep points get "raped."

02-07-2011, 01:19 PM
We should just get rid of the whole Rep point system.I have heard bad advise from good members.me included.most of the stuff on here is just opinions and can be argued either way.then there's the negative reps people wont take them serious because some ass screwed them right from the start.

I prefer word of mouth. People that deal with me know I do good work. I am on this forum to learn and teach. The I never even look at rep points. The only thing I look at is the pic's of members bike to see if we have a similar style of not. Thank you bUELL XB! I have learned alot from this site! [up][up][up]
