This does NOT make sense to me. You know how popularity contests aren't allowed? Well isn't that almost the exact same thing as rep boxes!? Does anyone else have a feeling on this? It's OK if you don't agree, everyone has their own opinion, just be nice.

If you let it turn into a popularity contest, it will. I've noticed a lot of things like this seem to be in our heads. My eyes tend to just pass over how many boxes a person has. Just focus on the content of the reply, rather than the quantity of the boxes.

And, it's a nice way to recognize the members who are helpful here.

I disagree. I don't think that it's a popularity contest, just what people choose to believe. It doesn't matter to me, but you should be known for how nice you are, but not how "popular".

I think that rep points are more for recognizing helpful posters than a popularity contest. I can see how you it could be interpreted as a popularity contest though.

No, I don't think it's almsot the exact same..Popularity is how famous or well-know a user is.
reputation is if someone is reliable,trustworthy, friendly,etc. or scamming, mean, tricky, challenging,etc. Rep. can be good or bad.

But, I'll give you a rep point because you seem to be safe, and friendly.

I'd also like to add that giving rep and getting rep lets the person know that they were helpful. Its a nice gesture.

Hmmm, well I have to disagree with you on that,

I think it's a great way to show someone that you really appreciated their input on something, or just for being a great user. I never thought of it as a popularity contest..,. Thanks for bringing it up!

Hey GatorGirl. I personally don't even notice the rep boxes when I'm reading someone's post. I think they are actually a neat addition especially the cool little phrases that come up when you scroll over them.
