I've posted my thoughts in the private "Complaints/Suggestions Forum" for the staff to see a couple days ago, but didn't get a reply. So now I
bring it to a public forum.
I don't know if you have reviewed the tags I've place on the ATS boards, but my tags are per the topic of the thread, or are relevant to a post in
I spent many hours working to make the tagging system a viable search feature for other members to cross reference threads of a simular subject.
I was never after ATS points, face it, they become worthless after you have a few thousand, and I even offered up my points as a prize for other
members that tagged. Though that was turned down.
The entire intent behind my tagging was to contribute to a forum that I get so much enjoyment from. It was a way to give back something to the
I have never been warned or recieved a point deduction for the tags I've placed other than a note from SkepticOverlord in the first weeks the project
started, and some of what I was doing was wrong. And I corrected that........
I have also advised other members about what the rules are concerning tags, and the penalties imposed for improper tags.
This was a system that I really wanted to see work, and I feel you've sullied my good reputation on these boards by making the above statement.
I'm glad the points for tagging are gone because it should make a better system in the long run, and it was a good way to get the project started.
I would like you to review the tags I've placed over the last few months to see if any of them have been in error, but I don't think you'll find
anything wrong in how I tag, and hopfully you'll see my point.
It was a lot of hard work on my part in an effort to make ATS a better place for everyone, and I'm dissapointed in your reply to this thread.
I tried my best, and contributed as much as I could per the instructions of SkepticOverlord, and now that's been dragged through the mud for other
member to see.
Strip me of the points I made tagging if you want, they gained me nothing, my other contributions to these boards give me more than enough points for
anything the store has to offer because I've been around here for a while.
I just want you to know it was an honest effort to contribute...............
