I know I couldn't wait until getting enough points for RATS when I first came on. I was thinking along the lines of some seriously cool happenings
I was wrong.
Granted, there are more serious overtones on RATS, but there have been too many threads bashing other members... but, as I am sure you may have seen
by now, RATS is being geared to become what it was origionally intended... serious discussion without one-liners or comments by members just there to
make comments (the belief being that having to pay the points will make one considerate).
RATS is what it is... but truth be told... not too many people post there. We see a red colored title on recent posts to show the RATS threads, and
more often then not, there aren't any.
As far as the Mud Pit goes...
I had posts in that group from months past, and recently went back to review some things, only to find out I was denied access. That's when I
discovered that I needed to buy the Mud Pit pass in order to see my past posts... which was rather screwy, since I obviously have been there before,
Is RATS worth it? Eventually, it will be, should be, but right now? It is a work in progress.
Is Mud Pit worth it? That is up for debate.
But I understand your concerns. I've been a member for... geez... a while now, and I don't have the same point levels as some more recent members.
Does it bother me? Hell no... Quality of the posts out weighs the quantity. The only reason I like the points is so I can have more download
space... there's just something annoying about reading a thread with enclosed picture, only to be replaced by a little tiny square with a red x in
