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.
Wait, so you mean that groans and blobs are not the same thing?

Eh, it is Friday. I'm sure that I don't even care. Just not sure how I missed this after all of this time

Ming The Merciless, the olde vase. Probably EF's first Troll. Other than some dude called Lob Rockster, who I was told "was made a Mod, because that's how you deal with Trolls - give them responsibility" (Mark's words)...

I am sure many mod and admin roles in vB can view and edit reputation.

The standard answer in the context of this thread would be to tell the requester that it is not possible. I support such an answer, after all, the mods here are not employees and not being paid - EB on the other hand, is.
Which still isn't a reason to automatically expect him to do what some members want.

Just discovered that moderators on VBulletin 5 can lower reputation when giving an infraction. I don't know if moderators here can.
We've never used infractions, and I've always assumed that the "points" they can add are a different thing, as they can trigger automated actions, like banning someone after a certain number of infraction points are accrued. Certainly the function as we see it in the Admin Control Panel doesn't have any obvious link to reputation points.

The infraction points are quite different. That's for controlling and warning members. For example, if you give ten points that bans for a week. But if you say that never expires, the next time someone wants to infract them, they can only give then ten or more points. It's a way of escalating penalties - a few one day bans, then a week, month, six months, year, permanent.

We usually run them for the length of the ban. I.e. by end of the ban they're expired.

The point reduction relates to blobbies. No way (outside of accessing the db directly) of manually increasing them.

That is why I have chosen to be the green fairy and I help you out there and for many others - (yes, I do like absinthe).

I do give out reds now and then when people have really pissed me off.
You seem to be very good at red-repping people you claim to have on ignore.

I wonder how come that you read their posts anyway.

That's not quite so, we can manually (re)set anyone's rep points very easily. We just don't. And won't.

Whether the new value stays in place, or the rep points received are re-counted when the database does some maintenance I have no idea, as I've never actually used it.

Sounds like asking for green rep..There you go.

OP - it cost nothing to green rep, I will add some to you and you can do the same to others. It is always better to opt for optimism, it is evident to us who in the community prefers the brighter side of things. Cheers and I hope that you are having a great Friday evening. X

I can't. vBulletin is a huge piece of very extensible crap. We upgraded from a late 4 version to 5. So much pain. I can't imaging what 3-5 would be like.
