It evades me. I like the thumps up/down gadget and I want one. But I can't seem to find a beta anywhere (not that I'd know one to see one).

That's what I was thinking Spade, Beta V.C.R.s did cross my mind, but after much deliberation I came to the conclusion that wasn't what she was talking about. These young people have to learn to speak English, when being technical, not Greek.

You have to ask Andem to become one of the Beta Testers. There is no option (unlike the previous Beta test) to change back and forth for the Members. Andem is the only one capable of changing it.

Cool. Thanks, Shadow.

A while back I got a few notices that some people had given me thumbs up on some of my posts. CDNBear explained to me that it was a beta version enabling him to do that instead of the greenies and reddies. *cuffs you two clowns on the ears* Pay attention.
hehehehe

This is true, and I prefer this version.

People can't go running around giving bad rep and leaving ignorant comments anonymously.

It's open to abuse, if you actually use these things to measure yourself. I think it's in the application of the "Thumb", that the measurement is truly found. But for the most part, it's a better system. Unlike the old one, you don't have to "spread it around". Which I didn't like.

I have to admit though, I'm extremely liberal with the "thumbs up". If you make me actually laugh, you get a thumbs up. If you post something I strenuously agree with, and thus save me the time of having to say it myself, you get a thumbs up. If you post something profound and thought provoking, you get a thumbs up. If you write a post that is indepth and intelligent, regardless of whether I agree with you or not, you get a thumbs up. Contrary to popular opinion. If you post rhetoric and/or parroted stupidity, you get a thumbs down. Which I am well aware of, has offended a few. Sadly they aren't capable of recognizing the fact, that when they post something decent, even when contrary to my position, they get a thumbs up. Nor are they capable of grasping that I don't use the system to spread a grudge around. Whether I like (Used subjectively)the member or not. Their posts are treated on case by case basis.

Which is pretty much how I would like to see everyone use the system. But that's just my opinion.

I would like to see it made available for OP's too. Prax, Nugg, VI and a couple others have started some excellent threads that I really would have liked to have given a thumbs up to.

Quote has been trimmed, See full post: View Post
I may be wrong but I thought since I was receiving the reports as good or bad and the name of the "reporter", that I was on the Beta system. You say though that unlike the old one, you don't have to spread it around. The last time I tried to add a rep I got exactly that report. Wasn't Beta the supposed newer version that we could opt to use? I opted to use it and have never changed my settings.
Andem says he has fixed it. Maybe that means for everyone.

Am I on Beta or not Andem? Seems to be a tad confusing here. As I stated to Bear, I receive the reports (not greens and reds but bad or goods) but yesterday I was unable to add a rep as it stated I had to spread it around.

I'm still here, so I guess he took it like a man. The PM I sent grovelling likely helped though.

Ok - Where do I send the funds for the new Beta version. I feel left out am so so alone.
Please take into consideration that I am a poor boy whose story is seldom told.

Also like Great Cdn Bear's description of the capabilities of this new system.

Your not in the Beta format VI.

Karrie, myself and a few others tried to explain this to you about a month ago.

Ya, I accidentally, as far I'm willing to admit, lol, gave him a thumbs down. Immediately followed by an overly apologetic PM, begging forgiveness.
