    As a zero I would expect to stay a zero, if I got points for good post I would have to stop posting.

    I would rather see all people participating then have people graded. A dumb statement or question is better then none at all. We can't learn if we don't ask, and if we are always put down, some won't ask.

    I may know a lot about a lot of things, but there are a lot more things I don't know about. Some people have trouble using the web and search facilities, I would rather they ask and get good answers then be shot down.

    Am I sensing that they may become a commodity? Cupcake hugs=$1. PM me for a mailing address. Delivery takes 4-6 weeks, after a 2 weeks waiting period for checks to clear. Don't email me or call for an update on your order, that'll cost you an extra week. I reserve the right to not ship anything for up to 15 months in case the quality of my materials is not what I hope for, or if I stub my pinkie-toe. Don't like it? Get over it, because noone else makes a Cupcake hug like I do.

I do see how it would turn into a ego thing though, and like I said before, I just didnt think of that.
    I wasn't pointing my "ego comment" towards you, Sixto, only to what I have seen on other forums. I am members of only a couple of other gun forums; I just seem to not want anything I see elsewhere to influence what we do here. But I do visit a lot of other unrelated forums to see what works and doesn't work, especially other forum administrator/webmaster forums. It seems the ones that use the "ratings" are those in the gaming, MySpace, etc forums.

    Here is an example of what I'm talking about;

    I make a thread asking this; “I’m a new shooter and I want to buy a Glock. I'm confused by all the model numbers and I want a compact 9mm. What models should I be looking at?"

    Poster A says, "the 9mm compacts are the 19 (midsize) and the 26 (subcompact). Here is a link to Glock's website for the particulars." www.glock.com.

    Poster B says, "An XDc is what you really want. I like mine."

    Poster C says, "You really don’t want a 9mm, you need a 10mm at least for self defense."

    So, poster A was the only one that made a decent post, and it helped me out. So I click on Poster A and give him a point.
    Posters B and C made worthless posts, so I ignore them, no points.

    Now as time goes on, poster A makes more good posts helping members out. B and C continue on with silly posts.

    Next question I ask is a more serious one... I see that A has an excellent member rating, so I know that I can trust his/her opinion on the matter, and B and C... maybe it’s not such a good idea.

    I dont even know if this is possible, and I know Bumper has a lot on his plate as it is, but hey, it just might work.
    what if the OP likes the suggestions of posters b&c?

    If B&C were a help, then great. Give 'em a point.

    I'm not sure where we should even begin with him. Lets wait and see if he is able to help anyone else out first.
