Re: Begga's reputation

I'm spreading rep around so I can give rep to Begga again - how many people do I have to "spread" to before I can rep the same member again?

Re: Begga's reputation

Fingers at the ready on the groan button, please.

I'm very happy to see all the positive posts about Begga and that members are giving her well-deserved rep points, but I'd much prefer that the Mods were not requested to raise her points to any specific level artificially.

Other than in Mark's case, Mods have almost (I cannot guarantee 'always') refused to alter these points as 'fair' just doesn't apply. We all know that Rep is all-too-often a misused feature on here. Red can sometimes mean that a new member made just one post which was 'not appreciated'. A lot of green can merely mean that a member plays to the gallery or simply has a large following - especially those who were around when 15 points could be given by a single member for a single post.

What are, in future, the criteria for a rep alteration? What about the members who have, in the past, saved EF from a premature closure?

Mark's situation was different. The Forum was his idea, his vision, his work, his skill, his creation and was set up with his money. To make his Rep Total out of the reach of others, is, to my mind, fair.

I think Begga's memory is better preserved by other, more tangible and more 'honest' methods - although, when I come to think of it, her trying to put Teckla, by all accounts larger than the regulation size, into a little bag to avoid buying a doggie ticket on a tram...

Re: Begga's reputation

I agree, it needs to be true rep and I also have no doubt that she will make it to the "rep olymp".

Re: Begga's reputation

I see it differently. I think those beloved members should get to the ''Temple de la renommée'' of the forum. Yes Mark should be at the top, but I also believe Begga should be at a level no one can reach.

She was an active member of this forum, in & out. She made so many contributions on this forum and members.

She deserve a special place on the forum's rep system. No matter if the rep system is important or not, etc.

I agree with you Kittster.

However, If you go to Begga's statistics, and find 'all posts', it doesn't take long to find a post that she made that was 'rep worthy', and one that you most likely missed.

Re: Begga's reputation

Done. I took an old post and tried to rep her there, so it was not functioning.

But I know how to rep in general. Thanks for letting me know, though.

Re: Begga's reputation

I'm spreading the rep to newbies before I can give it to Begga again. And I'm letting them know why they are receiving it too.

Yeah, it's easy to forget that only those with 200+ rep points can give 5. A lot of people can still only give 1 point. But that doesn't matter, it's the giving that's important.

Edit: Ah I see you beat me to it.

To prevent abuse unfortunately. Don't worry, 24 hours passes quickly.

Re: Begga's reputation

I’ve done my part and given Begga all the rep I can, but I got to thinking… Who cares? What does it matter?

Begga already has a well-deserved ‘reputation beyond repute’ and I’m absolutely certain that when she reached Heaven’s Gate, she was judged on her words, deeds, the life she lived and the way she lived it. She wasn’t judged on the basis of her meaningless English Forum reputation score. If that were the entry criteria for Heaven, I’d be screwed.

So don’t get worked up about her score. Don’t harass the mods to adjust it. Whether her score is 1 or 1’000’000, it’s not a measure of her worth. What Begga gave to the community is weighed by those who were part of it; what she leaves behind is a legacy and memory that simple points can’t measure…

You are so right.

The reputation system is just a symbol to represent her status in our heart but also on this forum as being in the highest level!

Thanks to bring back some perspective.

I couldn't agree more. In Mark's case we artificially raised his rep status but without asking a single member on the forum to do so now dozens upon dozens of members have been spontaneously giving Begga good rep. Here's a few (minus the member's name) I've copy/pasted for you all to read.

Best wishes Begga wherever you are now.

Thank you, Begga, for bringing light and laughter to all of us. Godspeed.

I got so touched today...

great person

You were awesome! (and stil are )

She's worth it

You're sorely missed by me, and everyone. Sleep well.

2 more points for Begga's reputation, I wish I could give it more points..

xo


The two threads that have been receiving an avalanche of new reps are her last post ever made on the forum and her 1,000th post (a real gem to read).

On the other hand, where can someone read and see the rep points a member have?
