#3
You get a blue square ? i thought that was the old neg symbol.
#4
red card
#5
I've never seen any rep squares.
I may have heard some while back that someone had figured how to neg rep again but I thought that they had closed that possibility.
#6
My rep score has went up tho.

EDIT: When I right click it and click "Save Image As" its file name is reputation_neg
#7
my red ones say rep positive when i try and save....my blue one say rep balance.

I remember before there was a thread about how to hack the rep and to give somebody negative rep as we used to be able to give negative rep and i thought the blue squares used to be neg ?

Certainly sounds like a negative rep - you may have had a simultaneous positive rep, to give the increase.
Time to ask a mod, maybe?

Yes (the now red?) and I think that there were suspensions as well!!
I thought that the hack was 'plugged'.

strange glitch then?
#14
perhaps if someone gives u neg rep it still comes up with the icon but actually adds to your rep rather then decrease it? Perhaps this is the 'fix'.

I got one of those ages ago too (from a trusted member) and asked the same thing - was told it was neg rep too:?
#16
If you look on the last page of the rep league you can see what neg rep looks like (a red square) as all the members on there have neg rep

LOL, I don't know what clip did but they must have annoyed a lot of people

I remember sassie getting one a few months ago, it was a mistake. Ask a moderator to look into it. :)
#18
It was a thanks for the congrats I gave them :cry:

Now a bell is ringing - did quite a few people get funny rep around the same time?

You'd have to deliberatly do something odd though unless it's just a glitch .

Were the smilies misbehaving then as well?????
Seems like I have no idea!:oops:

IIRC clip scammed someone in FS/FT...

Not sure if that alone constituted the amount of negative rep though.

Odd. Its pretty easy to give a negative rep if you have certain Firefox add-ons installed etc but tbh its unlikely to be a 'glitch' - and if someone deliberately gives a negative rep, rayman comes down pretty hard on them (and their rep) - I should know :giggle:

I dont think this person would tho. They are just "nice" :?

Well I reckon its quite plausible that some add-ons or specific browsers, such as maybe automatic form-fillers etc, may inadvertently deselect the disabled checkbox (not necessarily now but maybe in the future), so as long as the facility for negative rep exists so does a potential problem. Not sure exactly how much access the developers have to the specific piece of vBulletin code but there must be so many ways the problem could be removed (such as making a 'negative' rep positive in value and changing the neg-rep icon for the positive-rep one so even if someone does deliberately/accidentaly neg rep, the net effect is a +ve one...)

Are you a developer by any chance? :p
