how can i get a better rating...im new...thanks to anyone that will tell me
Make informative posts and participation.
In a nut shell......suck up! LOL j/k
Or buy your rating........
Fish often and report about it.
Keep posting and you will make it.
Personally,I don't give a hoot about the rating system.
I read posts,respond if appropiate,make my own reports,throw in some comments.
If someone has a great rating,but a bad post,it makes no difference and visa-versa.
This board does a great job of self moderating.
In the words of a great American
"..I yam what I yam...",ratings won't change me.
Funny i ran across this thread because i was just thinkin to myself what the heck is a squire? Anyway, ur absolutely right. somepeople with high ratings say some of the most offkey things sometimes, and some people with no rating make some excellent points. If someone takes time to answer an inquiry of mine, i do tend to increase thier stature just incase it means somethin to them. But like i said, dont let ratings fool you, there are some bonified, true to the core, catmen here who dont mind sharing some of the deepest secrets and if u look for ratings, youll almost pass up good learning opportunities. Im not bashing anybody who's earned any sort of credibility, im just saying be careful not to get caught up in ratings. Post good info, ask whatever's on your mind, respect others&participate as oft as u can. Enjoy the site man!
Bigal1, listen to Phatkat, man. Don't get caught up in the numbers deal. I have nothing against the rep system, but the rep points or post numbers aren't important to me at all.
The others have good ideas, too. There are a lot of good members here. I haven't had a problem with anyone. Some like certain hobbies or things that don't interest me at all, and vice versa, but we all have an interest in catfishing, which is why we are here.
1) Respect other members rights and ideas.
2) Pertinent information, clear and concise..
3) Remember, there are ladies and young children on this site, too. Keep it clean! If you wouldn't want your young kids to read it, don't post it.
Bigal, I'll give you a few points just for filling out the profile information.
Thats alot more then alot of people have done.
Im the same way mark when I see a new person I give them rep points as well if they have filled out the Profile part. I thought I was the only one that did that im glad to see others are doing that as well.
That's a good idea, Mark & Chuck. I wil try to do the same thing, starting with bigal1.
If by rating you mean rank, it goes up with post count. Reputation is totally different and goes up or down when other members rate your posts.

And here is what Paul has to say about the Rep system:
Being a dinosaur I didn't even know how to do reputation or what it meant truthfully.I was happy to be able to switch over and figure out how to post.Everybody on here has something to bring to the game.Contribute what you have and help people out and your reputation will take care of itself.Don't fixate on the numbers.There are people on here that only post occasionally but their knowledge of certain things far outwieghs their post numbers.
How do I give someone a reputation point?
Skippy use the little scales icon at the top of the persons post. A box will pop up in the corner. Hope this helps.
Skippy, look in the upper right corner of the person's post, to the right side of the post #, click on the balance scale icon. This will bring up a screen that allows you to give that person positive (or negative) credit.
Reputation is who people think you are. Character is who you are when no one is watching.
