    Pa....you have weather there. We have "nice". That and occasional freeway-helicopter chases to make up for the boring weather.
    But here if you do not like the weather just wait it will change.

    I say get rid of it. Those that have been around here for a while will probably know what I am talking about here in a minute. I must preface this by saying I am not "pointing fingers" or trying to call anyone out; simply stating something that I have observed over the course of this past year...


    This past year the forum has grown, member-wise, a decent amount (which is good). Most of the "rep" it seems, has come from these newer people figuring out what it was and simply clicking away for any reason, even just to bump someone's "rep" up because they thought it was low. Like I have said in the past, I am really not too concerned with whether I have a "bright future" or a "reputation beyond repute." It simply seems to me that lately with the newer people coming on board and the mass-posting about it has sort of turned it into a game to some, to see how high they can get theirs, or others.

    Wow, what a drop in rep points. But it is all good. I hope that this is the fix to the problem. That we can finally get past the rep point thing.

    Awww man I thought you were offering lessons for rep points!

    I had too many, I don't think I'm knowledgeable enough to have as many as I did, I call it beginners luck to be able to pull off some of the things that I've done so far.

    I put that at the end of a Mike Phillips quote.When he was Begging for Rep points LOL

    I need to set something up with Andy again and we will get a couple of us easterners together and burn some paint. There is a new Private training center close by I think we could get the use if there were more than 4 or 5 interested.

    I have been Detailing and running the wheel over cars,trucks,trailers,boats,Air planes and anything else that needed a shine for over 31 years and have taught dozens and the look on the owners face is all the REP I need. I post on here to help when I can and to share Photos of neat projects I have the privilege to work on and results you can achieve with great products and to share knowledge I have gained by my own experience and form others, newbes and Pros alike.

    So please take all my Rep points and buy a Soldier who swallows sand dust all day a better piece of body armor that he or she can come home in one piece.

    Give me a call Frank. I have some stuff I haven't used yet that I want to try and if anyone else is coming and want to try a product that they haven't tried let me know. I'm sure between the two of us there isn't much we don't have. Let's see if we put it all together, we could probably start a warehouse.

    Bummer, that's what I tought too. However, your rep points + join date = probably a teacher type. In my book, it's still good.

    My past rep points + join date = serious learner getting encourgagement
    OR
    =newb trying to get fake "reputation"

    I been use points and join date to figure who knows what they were doing. I am no longer embarrassed having more points than some of the guys I was learning from. The pressure is off.

    Re: Rep power gone wild?

    Join date and post count are not always accurate. My join date could be considered as "new" but I've been reading the forums for a while before I started posting. I also am a very quick learner and believe I understand the concepts and have applied them enough to share my wisdom..

    Re: Rep power gone wild?

    The other thing too, with regards to post counts, is there were many, many posts by a lot of us on the old forum that were deleted when they switched back to vBulletin. I would have about another 1,500 posts or so on top of what I have. Again though too, rep wasn't really a big thing back then either. It was hardly ever used from what I saw. Sure there was some here and there, but this past year when compared to others has just been "wild!"
