Nah, Mark what I meant was has anyone that actually uses this forum on a regular basis (ok 1.2 posts per day will do, mine isn't even above decimal place yet!) got a red cred blob as opposed to bland blue blob or great green blob.
There is only one that I know of and wondered if there were more.

Give it time, "that person" will soon spot this thread and is bound to comment (with photos and extra smilies).

Colin. It is expensive. The engine starts burning its sump oil, the revs build and build and band build and then........... BANG.

So you don't like them then?

The whole thing seems like a very simple concept to me. If you find a post useful or informative, give it some points. If a post is patently useless, ill informed or dangerous, give it some negative points.

It's not a quantitive measure of how much someone knows, it's an indication of how useful their posts are. Someone who knows a little but posts good advice should end up with a higher score than someone who may have a wealth of knowledge but whose posts are unhelpful.

This is obviously skewed by people giving out positive scores as "hugs" rather than basing them on how useful their posts are, and there does seem to be an inevitable correlation between the number of posts made and a person's credibility score (if you don't post, you can't get points; if you post a lot you will probably pick up points over time; on balance people give more positive points than negative, so if you post enough you will probably get a high rating).

The whole system is still on trial and I'll be deciding whether or not to keep it in a few weeks time. I still think that in most cases it is actually working quite well.

All they seem to do is encourage petty minded behaviour from the “less than mature” element here on this site. They aren’t exactly a true reflection on people’s knowledge are they?

Well said Jono. I pretty well opted out of the system a while back and I can honestly say that, until Kathleen mentioned it a few posts back, I didn't even know that a post could be checked. So, I've done a little personal survey. It seems that useful posts are even or negative, asking questions gets positive ( ) and saying thankyou gets negative ( ). Cool. What a useful addition they are.

Personally I find it hilarious that I have three of these things. Never realised I talked with such sagacity

Iím with Rouge Wave on the effect it has had on me. I have taken to wearing my shirt with a couple more buttons undone and a slightly larger medallion.

........both right. For me the blobby things are a little like the hand gestures one uses in the car. For example, if the nice chap in the Volvo pulls in to let you by one has a tendancy to gesture ones appreciation with a wave. Unfortunately we don't have time to stop and chat, shake his hand etc. Likewise if a tosser in a white van cuts you up one sometimes gestures ones appreciation for such stupidity with either a clenched fist moving vertically at speed, the two fingerd victory salute or just, in my case at least, a little wave and a laugh. Whichever the case these gestures are just a quick way of demonstrating ones feelings at that particular moment in time. For me the greenies are the same, a quick off the cuff response to a stupid remark or a positive one. After all it's better than posting abuse or in the example of the car, punching someones lights out 5 times a day.

Nor did I! I thought that I had removed all the bits that people could spend time upsetting themselves with . . .
