A couple things:

1) It's not just admins and mods who can rate posts. Anyone ranked Scholar or above can rate posts up or down.

2) There are a number of reasons people might rate you down. For example, I rated you down because you're whining about karma.

2b) I think your character's name is pretty dumb too.

3) What are you posting that you don't feel is worth being sub-defaulted, exactly?

You guys are at an all time new low way to be the bigger man.



Have you ever stopped to think that maybe you come across as a huge jack-off?

This is not YOUR forum. This is not all about YOU. This is about the game, not your opinions. There's no need to create multiple threads about the same topic just to see your name (usually in light grey) on the forum main page. This isn't your soapbox.

You come off as whiny, and that's why you get rated down. You aren't doing much to help your cause, either.

I never said I was the bigger man.

Your character's beard is silly, too.

In b4 lock and deletion.

Stop trolling already, its getting annoying. No one cares about your whining, yet you insist on making these kinds of threads. And I for one am not amused.

While I did not participate in any of the rating (up or down), did you really think that making a new thread to whine would help? You're giving people who obviously don't like you more excuses to rate you down.

I fail to see your point!

How am i any different , I just today posted a rant in someone els's thread. Because its what happens to me every time i post. Can i not defend a post against these people? Why are their posts not sub defaulted?

How would you feel if every post you made was sub defaulted by some scholor that trolls you then feels hurt when you reply and call BS on their crap?


You're entitled to your opinion, but if your opinion is just whinyness or trolling or just unwelcome, you're going to get rated down for it. I've had my fare share of rate-downs over the years for being antagonistic or stupid myself.

This post was rated down for complaining about the market wards.

I'm not sure why this post was rated down at all, but whatever. (EDIT: Actually, I think a lot of that thread was karma bombed)

Sometimes people just rate you down. I suck it up and I move on.

Continuing to complain about being rated down is almost certain to get you rated down even more though, so while your point may be valid, you're going to keep getting rated down.

My suggestion, based on my experience with being rate camped a few times in the past, is that if you have a rate troll or two, they're probably WAITING to pounce on your posts. My best suggestion is to slow down your posting or stop for a day or two, and then start fresh. Don't complain about the past, just post helpful, constructive, thoughtful, or funny posts. If you find that you keep getting rated down for posts that really don't deserve it, -then- send a PM to an admin and ask them to look into it.

Complaining about ratedowns will ALWAYS get you more ratedowns though.

I'd rather you complain about the game, than whine about your forum experiences.

That being said, we'd all rather you didn't whine about either.

Thread lock in 3, 2..

I couldn't have said this any better. The only other thing I can think of, Cornyboob, is if you post a constructive or helpful thread and someone in the thread gives you a negative response, just don't reply to it.
Only reply to the people who have something to offer on your post.

One last thing is the name-calling. Again, if someone is flaming you and the intention of your post was to share information or discuss on-topic info, then just ingnore the flames. Just don't start blaming specific people and bashing them. People will remember name-calling for a loooong time and it's just not worth it.

I usually rate down any post about rate downs.

I rated up the post about silly beards just because it was funny.

Whinny posts I usually rate down for being whinny.
