Default Don't go "Fishing for Reps".

I'm not saying it isn't okay to give people reps on a thread. I undertsand that if someone makes a really helpful thread they deserve it but if someone just makes a thread just for rep points well, that's not okay. If you want to make a helpful thread you should do it because it is a nice thing to do not just because you think you will get rewarded with many reps. If you post a thread don't go "Fishing for Reps".



P.S. Please do not rep me for this. I'm not fishing for rep points.

I agree. When I posted my "DONT release personal information" thread;i posted it because somebody on my profile asked me what school i went to. I didn't want reps for it,but some people gave it to me.

Well if they think it's a helpful thread than well they have a right to rep you even if you don't want it. But that is different from fishing for reps.

Great point! If you really have an idea that you think would be a good addition to WI, you have a right to post it! Don't just rack your brain for ideas so you can get rep!

Great points!

As you said, no one should make threads just to get rep. This should be just about helping people. Well, thanks again for this thread!

I agree, it should just be about helping people and being nice- the rep should just be a bonus kinda like a little smile in a box

If I view a thread that I think is written just to try to get rep, I usually dont even read it all.

There are some ginuinely wonderful and helpful people on here who make wonderful posts and those are the ones that deserve the thanks or the rep.

i agree! we're supposed to be naturally helpful, not obnoxiously (sp?) helpful. If we see a problem, be kind and helpful, but don't expect anything in return. :-)

Have a happy eco-friendly day!

I will post a question. I then give reps to those who are kind enough to take time to answer the question, and it really is helpful. I don't give reps to the answers that seem like someone just wants to post.

I hope this is a correct way to use the reps. I sure feel good about that. But, my questions are related to needing assistance in .
