    Not more power more features. You think this is all runs for free?

    Didn't you ask for more ability to rep?

    If you took the rep points off of porn and street racing videos i feel it would be more balanced

    I think I'd have to agree with this. but I think what Sticky is referring to is the ability to rep people more often as a subscribed member. @Sticky - could you elaborate on this for us please ?

    Who paid for it before we even had sponsors? What is the cost breakdown? What about software/server upgrades? What about turning a profit?

    Nobody is paying for the ability to rep. I'm adding additional features. Those cost money and they are optional. Nobody is forcing anything on you.

    Exactly. Very simple, current rep spread is 10 members. Subscribers would have this cut in half. The rep power/points stay the exact same.

    Good to know, thanks and count me in. I see no reason why that would detract from the site yet at the same time draw in some of what DBIFU was suggesting.
    It's a work in progress and I think that is what makes this place special. Knowing that members feedback gets taken seriously and even sometimes implemented is a rare thing these days.

    Well other forums are very isolated and you the administrators just make sure they have moderators that do what they want. MBworld for example is pretty much solely revenue driven and this corrupts.

    Anyone can contact me here anytime to let me know what they think or how they think things should be and I will respond.

    Why would there be any more abuse than now? The ultimate limitation is the rep power so if someone has rep power of 2 they still can't neg you 3 times daily if they wanted to. Additionally, I can see who reps who and how often. If it isn't warranted, I can disable rep for that person. I have done it in the past.

    You don't just sit around waiting for cash flow either. I'm not sitting here hoping I turn a profit one day I'm doing it. It's time to innovate and get more cash flowing.

    that's all well and good - but when you are the ultimate deciding factor, it first of all puts a tremendous strain on you, and opens you up to criticism. And also devalues the functionality of the site.
    I'm not saying you are not doing a good job, because you are - and your time and dedication is clear and evident. But if you want to build unique value, you have to make sure the site functionality is autonomous.

    There needs to be an ultimate check at the end. Right now I move threads, make edits, approve users, and generally moderate through the rep system.

    As the site grows so to do I cede responsibility to the userbase. Guys here from the beginning have built up considerable rep and are able to do a lot on their own now without my help. Ultimately though, someone is the final stop on the ladder which is not different than most systems like government, school, whatever.

    Fair enough, but please don't liken this place to government or I might go postal Click here to enlarge
    I've always told my friends who $#@! about the "system"....we might be better off with an oligarchy cause we all thought a democracy was the end all be all but look at where we are now. The checks and balances are not working.

    Hopefully, they do here.

    My point was not that this place runs like the government (if it did it would barely function, take tons of red tape before you get to what you find, would be running a huge deficit and require major borrowing to keep going, etc.) but that there is administration that ultimately handles issues beyond the scope of what the users can. I do this on a daily basis...

    well hell....before you change anything , i need to post a bunch of idiotic race videos to get some more rep . maybe a Bugatti vs. radio flyer or an MHP C63 vs. John Force's funny car is what i should post . i find it kind of funny that i ask a question about posting pm's and i get negative repped...TWICE ! i understand that a couple of negative reps aren't going to effect me any but it's the principal behind it .
