maybe no in this case, but it is often very personal indeed- and does add to bullying, and can lead to distress for some. No longer for some either.
Umm, you do realize that creating an alternate login is against the rules?

Re: can moderator cancel the "negative reputations" given to me by 2 members?

Well I had no idea that only 'senior members' are entitled to groan. I find that downright despicable, not to mention racist.

I'd like to formally go on record to say that all Forum Legends, Veterans or other variations on the ageist spectrum are a bunch of tossers.

Moreover, those 'Oh I'm so special' members who manage to create their own tag-lines are so far up their own backsides with bright torches it's no wonder they think the sun is shining out.

Actually, those bloody Newbies get my goat too 'Ooooo, I wonder if I can post something clever and get people to like me'. It's just so needy and patheti..... oh, hang on...

....shit, yeah, just ignore this, no hard feelings eh?

I'm kind of glad you didn't hurt yourself building that bench on the roof, being half blind as you started thanking posts back then in April 2020 while you still haven't found the groan button almost a year later.

Re: can moderator cancel the "negative reputations" given to me by 2 members?

I’ve all ways taken the thumbs up/down as people agreeing or disagreeing with a post... never took at it beyond that.

I thought the figures on the top right was some kind of FUed feature that could not be turned off. I mean thanked nearly 7,000 times in 3,000 posts! I might be going a little Gaga in my old age, but I think if I was being thanked that often I might have noticed.

Is it possible to cancel those "negative reputations"? or is it how it works here: If somebody is "senior" in the forum he can simply give bad reputation to other junior members simply because we "give him shit" (from "the shawshank redemption") ?
I'm amused by your "problems" but I gave you some green blobs anyway. This is the way to cancel "negative reputations" - by getting positive feedback from other forum members.

I've done this before for unhappy newbies or even older members who complained but more often than not, people who complained about this thing have earned back all those red blobs pretty soon after.

So use your chance to start over very wisely.

Good luck.

Creating duplicate accounts is against the rules.

It is not against the rules for a previous member who had deleted their account to come back with a new account as long as they originally left of their own accord and were not banned.
There are plenty of forum users who have done that and it makes no difference whether they were oldies or newbies.

Everyone cares about the rep system to some extent. Many pretend they don't while being constantly active on it

Good to know, so if I leave one day and decide to come back as "Nissan Qashqai", I will be ok? Do I need to tell the Mods that I was TTYL, and now I am "Nissan Qashqai"?

Maybe for Switzerland, but probably not for the owner who is in Sweden? Just a business project here.
