    Not to mention it would give me more time to catch up to Serious when it comes to posts. silly
    Face it at times I think this place is one giant family. It's nice thing.
    Also as many post as Serious? Please the real challenge is beating Tolvo's rep score.

    It will happen one day!

    I'll just have to make a thread where I can talk to myself at, no one will think weirdly of me then.

    @Slarg Yeah, I've seen that happen in quite a few forums, this would be forum #4 for me right now. That's why I'm hoping this thread will be different, for the most part the moderators around here are very capable of handling the occasional troll post, but I just have to wonder how many trolls will stray onto the forums once Dark Souls 2 comes out.

    I think the ultimate challenge would be, trying to beat both Serious post count and Tolvos rep.

    I don't know if it will be trolls necessarily who will come when DkS2's launch date approaches, but we will get new people and, I'm sure, more than a few will probably not be the type most of us like conversing with. People who are truculent, ignore the rules, or are outright trolls will probably come over, sadly.

    It is the way of the world. I'm enough of an optimist that I believe that when all is said and done most of the new members will be positive additions.

    Unless you are god I doubt Tolvos rep can be beating if you are not an old guard.
    Also from what I gathered this forum might be the closest thing to order and peace. No unreasonable trolls, insults, hate and the ones running things don't abuse power! To keep things good is something to be proud of admins! Give them an applause people...or this

    As long as i'm on a Dark Souls forum only Praise the Sun will suffice. I have seen some "lesser" behaviour on here though, which is to expect in any forum, even the good ones, like this one.

    I remember the guy using a joker avatar, god i can't remember his name, still active i believe. He used to get downrepped for no apparent reason whatsoever. Even when he made a good and funny comment there was a downrep.

    Even still, i was pretty surprised by how "well kept" this forum was from trolls when i joined.

    So that's where all that down rep came from a photo? Am I missing something with that? Still if this place booms with new people I'm sure the admins and mods know what to do.

    Jester? Yes, he would be the perfect example of someone that has been rep-trolled too much. I remember every time he would make a topic he would get a downrep, I believe it actually went over -30.

    I don't think it was the avatar that caused the down-reps. I think people down-repped him a lot because he used to have a nasty little habit of TYPING IN ALL CAPS.

    That's my guess anyway.

    Buggy Virus also had a very low rep. But I think he wanted it. Not 100% sure, though.

    IveGoneHollow has been having the same issue with rep-trolls but that's likely from players mad about dying to him a lot.

    Since this is the only active topic right now i'm going to watch Django Unchained while becoming fat.

    I got noodles with a spicy beef taste and pizza with curry, chicken and kebab.

    As far as Jesters rep, i don't know why he would get the downreps, and it really doesn't matter if there was something to it. But the fact that pretty much every single post got downrepped says something. And yes, he did have -30 rep at one point.

    Either way, i'm on a mission to become fat now, so see ya later!

    On the topic of food: The whole entire day I have been eating nothing more than chicken patty meat placed on a toasted bagel with mustard, it's delicious.

    On the topic of Jester's rep: Sometimes rep-trolls just get bored or some are oversensitive to someone's post, which is likely the reason why Jester got such a negative rep because someone got bored.

    On food: Oh god I hope to keep the chicken soup down. Damn illness seemed to move from my head to stomach and it's hell.
    On rep: that's just wrong to decide to go after someone's post just to -rep because your bored.

    It's why we can't have nice things or in this case rep.
    Back on the topic at hand: I don't think I've ever eaten chicken soup, for the most part I eat ramen and that's it.

    It has been a bit slow lately hasn't it?

    As for the Forums dying:

    They will see, we'll fight until eternity.
    Come with me, we'll stand and fight together.
    Through our strength, we'll make a better day
    Tomorrow, we shall never surrender...

    lol Jester, poor guy just can't catch a break.

    Rep to me contributes to your creditability as a summary of the person's post without reading them. However with jester his post had no reason to be down rep.
    Another off-topic: I finally think these are partially deaf. I never been within two feet of these things from behind without aggro. Their ribbits have a strange calmness to the depths.

    I normally get my rep from making jokes in the general section. I've never cared about it really though, I have about as much credibility as a pink elephant.

    I think it all depends on what the Mods wish to allow and what we as the forumers want the mods to allow. I personally want the Swag thread in GD to be closed, killed with fire, brutally abused, and processed into fast food. Other people probably don't agree with me.

    He got down repped because he posted something about Gwynevere I believe. I akways thought he was very funny but people got offended easily.

    A comment about the woman who, correct me if mine wrong, practically has a meme about breast jokes? Must have been weird to get offended. Where is Jester anyway?
