I'm not sure if this would work, but here it is anyways. I think that we should be able to make/edit our own custom statuses when we get a certian amount of rep (like 50 or 100?). This could be a good thing because it will be more encouraging for people to make better posts. What do you guys think?

it would also encourage getting/giving rep when the person doesn't deserve it.
and it would make having a costum status less special

I'm sorry but I don't really get what you mean, could you please explain? I agree with the second part for sure though, it was just an idea.

No. Lame idea. Poorly thought out. Custom statuses and rep are abominations, like yo momma.

Shampoo knows what is going on. After the whole rep thing he seemed kind a gay but he has earned my affection.

It isnt a terrible idea, but maybe expand it with a certain amount of time on here, posts etc.

Yeah, I got the idea from SP, onece you get 400 posts (I'm pretty sure its 400), you can change yours to whatever you want and it works fine there.

Rock-adio, every time I see you post I wonder what better things you could have been doing when you made 8,180 posts in the last seven months.

I don't see what the big deal is about Custom Statuses. It's just a stupid saying you can put under your name, oo, big deal.
If you really wanted better posts, it'd be smarted to take away sigs until a certian amout of helpful/meaningful posts.

It isn't a really big thing, I was just thinking of it like sigs and how we can change them so why can't we change out Custom Statuses, thats all. I guess it isn't a good idea though so this doesn't really matter.

I think that since you become a 'Respected User' at 6 months 500 posts, then at 1 year 1000 posts, you should get a new status inplace of 'Respected User'

I could see your approach to wanting people to make better posts by using rewards to bribe them, but this would only encourage rep tennis again, even with the new system. SP is a forum with mostly intelligent members, who know what they are doing, from what I've seen. SB-C on the other hand.... Well can you see where I'm going with this? Something that would work there, probably won't work here.
