Default Re: Don't go "Fishing for Reps".

Great point, I think "fishing for reps is a bad way to get them. They are supposed to be given to you when you are helpful, not when you just want the....anyway, I know you said not to give any reps here, but I think you really deserve one!
so [rep] for the GREAT thread!

Default Re: Don't go "Fishing for Reps".

I'mma make my opinion clear, I do like rep. I like it, I enjoy it, it makes me feel good when I read those nice little coments that people leave for me. But, when I post a thread, I think if anyone made this thread before. In my personal opinion [excluding lissyxwebkinz, she had a valid reason] there should be 1 thread for each reminder. I've seen COUNTLESS reminders for that. For crying out loud, it's a sticky already, we don't need it too much. [Like I said, lissyx actually had an EXPERIENCE, that's different.]

I hope this didn't offend, I meant to addmore, but I g2g.

I agree with you on that one, icecube.

There are already a couple threads about posting PI (personal information), and most members would know about posting in light colors or blue/red. However, we do need reminders now and then.

Default Re: Don't go "Fishing for Reps".

I agree with you 100%! Sometimes I get rep just for posting my opinion on a poll...I didn't ask for it, I just randomly get it! And then my really helpful posts get seen by no one, and I get no rep for those.

Well, i think its ok. Maybe a person thinks another person is a great person/friend!!! Or maybe a PM/Profile Message was helpful. I think if u dont go out saying

"PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ME A REP!" Its fine.

Default Re: Don't go "Fishing for Reps".

Ha ha, I like this thread

I actually do not like creating new threads now. I like to respond to everyone when people post on my threads, so creating new ones means even more I have to keep track of. So if I def don't create threads to fish for reps, cause it's way more of a hassle than a benefit. So if I create one, then that means I really really really felt for a need for it.

I'm not sure that all people posting duplicate threads are so much fishing for rep as they just didn't search to see that other people created a thread talking about the same thing. I know, sometimes, they are right next to each other + someone might go "how hard is it to scan a page to see if people are talking about the same thing?", but I think it's easy enough to do that by mistake.
