Technically.
I like this song.



....Don't you?

I can't find a clean version though. But anyways on topic

But on a serious note, get a moderator to contact me and give me a TOS quote which explains that I cannot give rep for a post for the reason I chose, or do it yourself, and I will gladly, ask you to play this song again until you get it, no offense but out of the million of rules on this forum, I have not seen the one your talking about..

Quote please.

You make it out to look like I'm a bad person for giving rep... like I am abusing the system...

Rep is pointless.. I respect him more for showing intelligence instead of bashing me.

Just to clear up any issues regarding rep for all parties involved.

Quote:
Reputation Overview
–Reputation is a feature within the forum that allows members to acknowledge other members for leaving posts that are beneficial to the forum and it's membership as a whole.
–You can leave reputation by clicking on the REP + button, which appears within each member’s postbit, every time they post.
–You have the option of leaving a comment along with your rating. This is highly encouraged.
–All members start off with 0 reputation points. It will increase with every Rep you receive from other members.
–Your reputation appears in your “postbit” alongside each post you make.

What is Unique Rep?
Unique Rep is the marker that shows how many different people have given you rep. If you wrote 5 great posts and I decided to give you REP+ for each of them your Rep would increase by 5 but your Unique Rep would only increase by 1.

When should Rep be given?
Reputation should be given to members who make posts that are beneficial to the forum and it’s membership. When you give rep, keep in mind that members with a high rep will be perceived as "top members" in the forum. Give rep wisely!

When should it NOT be given?
Reputation SHOULD NOT be given for matters of personal gain. This includes giving rep to friends for any reason, for gmail accounts or anything else that does not benefit the membership as a whole.

Reputation Etiquette
- Do not beg for rep.
- Do not hold grudges with rep. Give rep to ANYONE who posts something that deserves acknowledgement.
- Do not create multiple accounts to give rep to yourself. You will get caught.
- Do not give rep to a post of a member just because you like them. The POST itself should be worthy of the rep.

Reputation

The reputation system is intended to acknowledge members who have contributed to the forum, essentially a tally of "thank yous" for good work. In general, rep should be given to any member who provides help to you in a thread or who posts an exceptional post anywhere on the site. Rep should not be given for information shared in a PM, for posts that are not helpful, or for any frivolous reason. You may not ask for or offer to give reps for help; it is understood that members will give reps when they are deserved. For more details, read the Reputation Defined thread.

On topic: This guy is crazy. I wouldn't pay £1000 for my Guild Wars account back if I got banned and invested nearly 5 years into that. I'd just stop playing.

It's this form of addiction that gives WoW such a tarnished reputation among other communities.

That's because you always hear about these people thanks to the media hell bent on tarnishing gaming in general. I'll bet that the average individual spends less than 15 hours a week on that game. I used to play as well, I was never hardcore about it though..generally I was pretty casual. Most people would have the same attitude as you and simply stop playing.

On another note (don't want to associate this part of my post to Lifeshield): I always did find it extremely hypocritical for someone to call someone who plays WoW worthless or a timewaster (or whatever your insult is) and then goes and plays several hours a week playing CoD or BF or CS. I guess though, if that's what it takes to make you feel better about yourself then go on and do it.

Too late, kiddo.

If it was that important, don't do something that can easily get you banned. I'm no stickler for rules, but I sure don't endanger things I care about by breaking rules that I know can lead to me losing my important things.

Just because you don't like it doesn't make it crap. Look at the massive player base, now rethink what you just said.
