    The current U.S. version, yes. When I was in Afghanistan, eating at the NATO DFACs, I remembered how much I loved the stuff as a kid. Then I got back home and realized that the current U.S. version just ain't the same.

    I wonder how much the ban rate will increase during the initial burst of obnoxiousness from people that only behaved because they cared about rep. :spock:

    This is the only social site I'm on because any other one I've been on either was drama or obsolete after a few weeks. So glad they're making this site even less prone to bs. I'm a misanthrope though anyway, so :fawk:

    I kid, I kid. Thanks sevenstring, now a person's substance matter more than a silly rating system. Now if only youtube and facebook were more like you!

    I would think because it hasn't caused the drama that rep has, but I might be wrong

    Thanks is a positive-only system. Rep was a negative-positive system.

    Thank God.

    I love EMGs. The Duncan Alt8 sounds way better to me than any pickup I've had from BKP. I seriously HATE Ibanez 7 string necks....it's the single most uncomfortable guitar neck I've ever touched and it should be outlawed. I've also never heard a Periphery song that I've liked.

    I got nothing else, but I've wanted to say that shit for literally YEARS on here.

    WHEW. I feel better. More myself. Yeah buddy.

    Carry on. Nothing to see here.

    Neither did I. :lol: Although the user control panel did look rather empty and I couldn't put my thumb on why...until now.

    Yeah, there's some good and bad to be had here. The mods will probably have to work double time for a bit to keep down the trolls. I did love digging through peoples repped posts when I was really bored though. Found some funny threads that way.

    Well the "Thanks" still give a good idea of your contributions to the forum which I think is nice. The rep, as I understand it, was a vague visual representation of the same thing. The Thanks seem more accurate, though if you really think about it. At the same time, rep was partially based on how many times you were thanked so I can also see the way it was visually representative of the same statistic, however, it was also influenced by whether or not ppl liked what you had to say in random posts as well.

    As a fairly average user, i have no strong feelings either way. But I always felt SSO to be an amazingly civil environment as far as forums go...guess we'll find out

    I disagree. Thanks only represents how many threads you've made. There are tons of people here giving great advice whose contributions aren't recognized by that system. At the same time there are people making shit threads that still get thanked.

    I personally liked the rep system, although I understand the headaches it caused. People took it a bit too seriously and rep complaining was obnoxious. At the same time, anybody that made it to red was usually an ass and it was convenient to have a handy "I'm an ass" badge. :lol:
