Default Unanswered: Not to be antgonistic, or confrontational or anything...

Why do some members get rep points, or not? Also, hoiw do you get into the whole gift exchange thing?

I've been a member for 9 months. I won the quickdraw twice. What do you need to do to progress on this site?

No offense, or hostility. I just don't understand it. Could someone just give me a clue? Throw me a lifeline or something.

With all due respect,

You can apply for the gift exchange using the link in my siggy.... it'll tell you the requirements and there is the application. If you are confused about what is meant by good posts please check out the other link in my siggy.

Rep is given when a you think a member has been helpful to you or gone above and beyond in some way shape or form. Some members give out random rep... Most don't. Rep is earned through kindness, helpfullness and unselfishness in most if not all cases. I give rep when I find helpfullness not only to me but to other members.

I hope I've cleared up your questions. If not feel free to PM me or post again and I'll try to respond.

Hi I hope I can answer your question.

Rep points- rep points are given by member to member when they feel like someone has been helpful or answered a question or they just like what someone said. Some people don't give them out, some people give them more readily. It just depends on the situation.

I notice that you haven't made a ton of posts, but if you maybe do more posts you may have a better chance of getting rep points

The gift exchange is something that you have to apply for. I will get you the link in a second if someone else hasn't already linked you to it while I am typing this. You meet the time requirement because I see that you have been a member since January. The other requirement is that you have over 50 non-fluff posts. You go to the gift exchange application thread and tell them you meet the requirements and wish to become a gift trainee and then you wait to be contacted.

---------- smk added 1 Minutes and 55 Seconds later ----------

I see that FireBranda gave you the link. Good Luck!

Here's what I know. You give or receive rep points by clicking on the thumbs up symbol near your avatar. Rep points are supposed to given when someone has been really helpful. If another member finds your post and/or thread helpful they may give you a rep point.

In terms of the gift exchange, you need to apply at the thread underneath the WI Rules and Suggestions section. Once you have applied, you may or may not be accepted into the gift trainee program. I am currently waiting to hear if I will become a gift trainee. I am not sure how WI members are selected, but I do know you have to 50 quality posts and be a member for at least 2 weeks. There are has to be a spot for you to work with a gift coach.

Hope this information was helpful.

Default Re: Not to be antgonistic, or confrontational or anything...

Each member must apply to the gift exchange for that status change (webkinz to gift trainee), it is not automatic.
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...t-t219641.html

Rep is given out to members who you just want to say thanks for the help, if you found them helpful. It is a quick way to say thanks instead of sending a pm, or finding the thread they helped you on.

Something that hasn't been mentioned, from your original questions ... to progress on this site (and increase your chances of being accepted into the Gifted training program) ... post friendly, helpful information. Check out Gingerly's thread here http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...s-t327735.html

That thread has fantastic information on what kind of posts are considered helpful. If you're helping people, you should also get rep
