QuoteUh, what I am complaining about is that you smear my good name and you give me no avenue to correct it.
QuoteApparently, there is no way to correct my reputation. This is strange, because even felons, after serving their jail sentence and acting in good behavior, have a chance for parole. But I guess I have none.
QuoteCheck my reputation (tell repbot a diane) - be prepared it goes on for a few pages, but at the very top you will see I have recieved some complaints - mostly from people who have dropped me, I complain and they complain in retaliation.
QuoteAt one time I had a higher reputation on RepBot than anyone, so Biggles set out to actively acquire the highest reputation on RepBot. This spelled the doom of an otherwise excellent bot[\quote]LOL!!!!So the bot was excellent when you had the highest rep, but then was doomed when someone you dislike obtained a better one.don, zip up your fly, we don't like this much exposure!
QuoteMr. Connell,If you cannot take advices from women (somehow understandable)
QuoteThen of course socksy and Diane will engage in their circular reasoning that because someone gets mad that they have a bad rep on repbot it is proof that repbot must be right!
QuoteI tell you, after my experiences, particularly on this board, it is the greatest thrill to tell someone you won't play them because they pay attention to repbot. It is a truly wonderful experience. I thank you for that.
QuoteJust writing to say I still think you guys are a bunch of idiots.
Quote from: connell on November 22, 2008, 11:45:27 PMJust writing to say I still think you guys are a bunch of idiots.I changed my name about 1 and 1/2 years ago and I have had a good reputation ever since. I assume that means you now have to listen to me since I have a good reputation.Repbot is worthless. That is what I as a repbot certified good person have to say about repbot. I assume you will accept that now since I am certified good by your own stupid program.How do I avoid playing with droppers, cheaters, and idiots then. Three rules: 1) I don't play with people who have less than 200 experience, 2) I don't play with anyone who makes a positive comment about repbot or otherwise says that they don't play those who have a bad reputation on repbot, 3) anyone who asks me to vouch for them on repbot, I tell them they are an idiot for paying attention to repbot and not to play me any more, and 4) I play anyone who has a bad reputation on repbot.Those are the only rules you need to avoid low lifes. You don't need repbot. So you guys are just playing with yourselves, wasting time and energy, and slandering people for no reason.I tell you, after my experiences, particularly on this board, it is the greatest thrill to tell someone you won't play them because they pay attention to repbot. It is a truly wonderful experience. I thank you for that.
Quote from: PersianLord on November 23, 2008, 08:28:46 PMThe only good thing RBNG provides you is the saved games number of the inviter.
Quote from: sixty_something on November 24, 2008, 08:15:15 AM"Good grief", as Charlie Brown would say .. PersianLord, that is way too simplistic a statement and repeating connell's rant is worthless .. while saved games is the most valueable metric in the ReoBotNG ASK command, it is by far NOT the "only good thing" when the Rep points total is over 100K it becomes almost meaningless for comparison purposes which we all tend to do, obsessed as many of us are about our precious Rating .. i tend to clump all players into the same basket whether they have 100,001 or 1,100,001 Rep points .. however, a negative Rep is a good warning to look further or be cautious with a player you don't know .. i also know several players with bad Reps, i.e. negative points, that are really good people, but said or did something that offended a few too many people .. in almost all cases, i've seen folks like that turn around and become good FIBS citizens, as apparently connell has done under a different nick .. thus, RepBot performs an important self-policing function in our little communityfurther, a good reputation is really not that hard to obtain .. almost anyone can accumulate a Rep of 50K+ with little effort and responsible play .. as you probably know, when a vouch is issued the Exp of the voucher is used to assign Rep points up to 10,000 per vouch .. thus, playing and being vouched by as few as 5 players with 10K+ Exp can yield a good reputation rather quickly for any newbie, but that does not discount its value so, Rep, like Exp, Rating, and saved games, is just another metric for evaluating players you don't know and might want to invite to play or may be inviting you RepBot was abused in the past, but as socksey noted that abuse has recently been prevented with updates and improvements, thanks to inimadditionally, RepBotNG offers several other commands that can be very useful:List - provides a detailed list of vouches and complaintsAlert - tells you when a player with whom you have a saved game logs inFriends - compares your vouchers and complaints issued with those received by another playeropen the RepBotNG chat window and type HELP for other commands and syntax .. it ain't perfect, but it is a good tool when used responsibly and consistently
Quote from: PersianLord on November 24, 2008, 04:22:54 PM. Thus, a smart dropper might well follow this strategy: getting high exp players to play, play nicely and politely and then getting a vouch and after reaching enough exp/rep, going to drop the newbies when about to lose.That seems like a lot of work to me. If you're going to play nicely against good players, why not just keep playing them? And why waste your time playing poor players? It's like shooting fish in a barrel. (not that I won't accept invites from low-rated players for short matches; I don't invite them myself)
