    I logged in this morning and noticed I received -5000 Reps from a mod for not tagging a thread as "Stern Related." I had no idea how important of an issue this was. My only suggestion would be to have a sticky at the top letting the members know how important this is.

    I don't post many new topics so it is my fault for not following the rules. Again, I am not sure why this many reps needed to be erased for a mistake on a thread that had only 15 replies.

    This is just an FYI for others so they don't make the same mistake.

    Again..my bad. It won't happen again.

    The penalties are progressive, looking at your rep history you already received a warning about tagging threads on December 29th.

    It may seem silly to some but keeping Stern threads separate from others is serious business to others.

    BethSucks gave me negative rep for the same thing, but my thread didn't even fit under any of the tags. Oh well, ill just select a random one.

    Would you like to re-write this? Your account shows no neg reps from me and the only tag related item was 500 positive reps from me on December 24th asking you politely to use tags.

    No, it's not silly. It's fucking retarded. Now the reps system is being used as some kind of demerit system? What the fuck is going on with this place?

    Merge the Stern forum and the Bar, making it a "general topic" forum and create a Stern forum. Require Stern topics and Political topics to be only posted in their respective forums. How is that so hard?

    Wow - if this is the new policy - fine.

    But then the website should just force everyone creating a new thread to choose one of the tags - don't let the thread be posted unless a tag is chosen. Create a TAG for Misc.

    That way everyone must choose a tag to post a new thread.

    Don't put it on the Shedders - fix the site to enforce the policy.

    from my memory, you gave me -50 once because of my tag usage. If that's wrong, then sorry.

    Start your own board, until then the way the ownership wants it here is the way it will be, this system has been effective in keeping the various groups apart. I don't know how many times Dawg and Monk have to post they will never merge the Bar and Stern Forums.

    That's a great idea. Keep people apart on a message board. Hey, make a separate forum for each tag type. Then we'd have to jump all over the place to talk to each other.
