Default Dumb question

This is dumb, but what's with the 'Score' feature in the S90 forum? It's only in the S90 forum that it appears and everyone is set to Score: 0. So I was just wondering if that was a beta for the forum as a way of repping members. Does anyone know?

That has to be the most, rediculous, retarded, unresearched, freeaking, @%[email protected]#[email protected]#$^^^&#$%$#@%@#$ lol just kidding.

Its actually a rather asute observation, one i didnt notice, but in my defense, i rarely go to that forum.

The simple answer is this. This forum is created of computer code known as ASCII. Which in turn is used in a program called Visual Basic. Which uses either psuedocode, C, or regular VB scripts to form the Forum. The most widely used progam on the internet for this is known as PhBB.

Now each forum has a points or ranking system. Usually its got about 3 of em. You will notice that the more times you post. your level as a poster goes from new to eventually Super Member. I would assume that Score: is another type of ranking or system that one can accumulate through the forum, however the moderators switched left it on on that forum and not in any of the others because they dont use it, or never intended to. Each forum is its own entity. So each can have its own attributes, meaning it can be open, or private, or locked, basically its own preferences. All set up by the moderators. By moderator i mean those that can acctually change the site, not just moderate the forums.

So in a nutshell, Its basically a unused forum option that was turned off, and someone forgot to take the option off on that particular forum. So everyone has it, but no one has anything from it.

Is it an administrator you're referring to here?
