    everyone is now happy I see.

    score one for the pissandmoaners.

    BTW sean........my informal observation is practically no one liked the latest forum software upgrade........so when are we going back to the former version everyone liked?

    Geo, don't get down big fella. We still know you're a good contributor of valuable information even without all those little green squares by your name.
    By the way, I don't mind the upgrade, hardly anything changed other then the looks and the reputation point thing which we all know how well that went.

    er, I mean Buck

    I noticed the forum is faster this morning since the switch. I guess all those people dinging slowed it down a bit?

    yayaya buck--I have been so depressed. I awoke this am to view my ever increasing aura of spectaculariance to find my star had not only dimmed but was extinguished.

    no more swapping buddy-boy points with my friends. and back to the days of not commenting to others about their good posts as well.

    I don't see a clear winner here.

    oh well, I think I figured out how to salvage the day which began with going back to bed. now it's off to the gun show to spend money.

    and tonight I will collect enough toilet paper to run a hotel for three months and every meal I eat for the next 10 days will have eggs.

    Well, Sean, I was going to vote to keep points if you could make sure every ding or pos had the name attached. But something was wrong with my internet and I couldn't do anything but read, no posting. That's life. (But I am sad that now I will never know if I could have made it beyond "distinguished road" :p )
    It is something of a commentary, that I can't recall getting a single neg who had the ballz to sign his name!!! Like someone said, what am I going to do, drive over to your house about a post on Lawnsite?

    Now, Geo, don't try to start something about the new format/software.

    Sean, Lawnsite is WAAAAY above the competition, even if we have our little gripes! (Now, do I get a positive for that? :rolleyes: )

    Not all too soon, Sean, as far as I’m concerned. Now people will have to earn their “points” the ol’ fashioned way.

    And for the supporters of the point system, don’t feel too bad because you can still respond to someone’s post. You’ll just have to do it less covertly with you name out there for all to see.

    Could it be that Sean got so many dings that's way the point system is gone.
