    Thanks Pete, it was a collaborative effort

    Jerry set the banner, this was his post....
    I've created the banner
    In the ADMIN PANEL it's actually called "Notices"
    I've set this notice to NOT be dismissable, so for now it will be there for all, then later we'll adjust the settings on that Notice so that it will appear to all members once and be dismissible.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Regards
    Ford

    Regarding the multiple reps, I thought that you are not allowed to give consecutive reps to the same person, so those two members who were breaking what is now Rule 13 should have spread a lot of rep around to other members in order to be able to build up 2000+ points each between themselves.
    They did, but they deliberately sought out inactive members to give it to. None of it happened by accident, it was done cynically - we know this because they discussed their MO in their rep exchanges.

    As an example, they would "chat" back and forth through rep comments...
    "Another good joke, this one made me laugh a lot --- Rep Comments are also a good Chat medium "
    "Hi xxxx, I'm not see(n?)ding points around so I've problem with ease talk by the rep medium, anyway it's possible "

    It's been 10 days -- have we looked at the banner long enough?

    In the Notices section of the Admin CP, there's a Notices manager. Within that, there should just be a check box to make it dismissible.

    What if the same member helped me for my next thread?. Now should wait for another problem to occur in my work,then a member other than who helped me first time should help me and then I give rep to him then I go back to my second thread and give rep to whom who helped me twice consecutively?

    I see no problem with this situation, you are not abusing the system and your reps would be rightfully earned. The whole focus of this rule is to prevent abuse.
