Default Re: Get rid of reps!

I just say have fun and be yourself, and I like giving quiet thank yous, and I like getting cheerful messages.

Default Re: Get rid of reps!

I have to agree with both sides of this argument. I am a new member, and I've gotten a lot for my time being here in WI. But, some older members haven't gotten an equal amount of reps for their time being on WI. Also, some people who post just to post are getting more reps than some people who post meaningful posts, which is bad. And, some people are just giving out reps just as much as they post for no reason. However, it is a nice way to say that you liked someone else's post and to say that they're doing a good job. I think they should definitely improve the rep system, but I don't think they should get rid of it altogether.

Default Re: Get rid of reps!

I love giving reps and I love getting reps. The reps that I like getting the most are the ones with messages, but I always look to see which post it was that they were giving the rep to, to see if it was just an agreement, or if they thought it was a good idea and sometimes they will respond on the thread, so I will see the next few posts to see how they expounded on my thoughts, if they did. (If you click on the rep message, it will take you to the message that got the rep, so you don't have to go through the thread looking for past pages.)

And I love being able to give someone a rep just to acknowledge that they are considered friends here on WI and that they are experiencing a good event, like a birthday or a holiday, or to encourage them when things are a little off with illnesses or school difficulties to brighten their day.

I love the rep system, and I hope it does not go away. It's just fun.

Default Re: Get rid of reps!

I don't post here except to ask questions or on a couple of occasions to attempt to answer a question. I do know from posting on other adult oriented forums that the higher the rep of a user that gives YOU rep, the faster your own "status" accumulates.

This results is some users on those other forums in kowtowing to the "popular" posters in hopes of getting rep from them.

I don't pay attention to anyone's rep on any forum precisely because I know how it works. Still, it can be a quiet way of saying thanks to someone. I don't see any reason to discontinue it, just be aware that it's not necessarily a reliable indicator of how helpful someone might actually be.

I must say, I wasn't expecting this thread to head in this direction at all! Maybe I have been guilty and not repping people as much as I should!

Default Re: Get rid of reps!

I never really pay attention to the badges and things, and only notice that mine changed if someone congratulates me for it. I love looking at the spinning rainbow-colored stars and hope to get one someday, but other than that, the only thing that I really notice on the profiles is when they joined - for instance, if someone seems to have some very basic questions, I look to see how long they have been a member, and notice how new they are. If someone gives a very good, specific knowledgeable answer, I will look to see if they have been a member as long as it seems just because they knew so much. Just out of curiosity, but otherwise, I look more at the avvies that they chose and user names. But I love giving reps with little messages, and reading the messages that come with reps sent to me.

It has been an interesting discussion. I never realized the different ways people use or interpret reps. And I never thought that rep from some users could weigh more than others.

Back when I first joined and asked about how reps worked all I ever got was "Only Justin knows ". Which I guess still holds true today. We'll probably never know unless Justin, Wendy or Kevin tells us, hah.
Well your theory is pretty much confirmed:

I didn't notice that either. One day I'd have two green bars then the next I'd have 2 gold ones. Mind blown .
