    I don't think this user rating system is going to work out all that great....

    Me neither, don't think it will take too long before someone complains or is victimized. But I would like to know what devshed ranking system is. There is a default one at vBulletin, but seems to be customized here.

    It will, given time. I like the idea that it be disabled for the Lounge, though. If people start "rewarding" those that answer questions (you know, in the forums outside of the Lounge...), then it can be useful and personally rewarding.

    it definately has potential, but if left on in the Lounge it would probably become worthless.... who knows what kind of garbage we'd throw around in here

    wait... so what you're saying is that by being modest, you have something that you could have boasted about, which is indirectly boasting, which means you have little to boast of, thus your **** is in actuall fact a ****

    that would be a contradiction in terms, wouldn't it. calling yourself modest is not talking oneself up, is it: Boast @ Dictionary.com
    while ((code="javascript").substring(0,4)=="java") code!="java"

    while ((gratitude="thanks in advance").substring(0,6)=="thanks") gratitude!="thanks"

    now now... play fair. If you're going to quote me, then quote what I ACTUALLY said, instead of twisting it to suit you.

    btw, what I ACTUALLY said is not, at all, a contradiction.

    and it was ACTUALLY intended to be COMPLETELY humourous...

    so on a humourous note:

    How do you actually do that? Cant seem to find it!?!

    Also they should clarify exactly what time spent in forums is. Is it the time since i logged in last today, in which case its too long, total time today, in wgich case its too short or total forum time alltogether in which case its waaaaay to short? Is there som ekind of FAQ or info in this anywhere??
