I am sorry but I disagree. I think it is a genorise way to give someone your thanks! And a good goal to reach.

I disagree completely. Whenever someone helps me out with something I give them a rep point for being helpful. I am pretty sure that is what most people use it for.

I agree. It's a nice/simple way to let someone know they were helpful.

I love giving out rep to people who post helpful, informative, or even funny posts. I also love finding that I have been given rep for one of those reasons. I don't think of it as popularity at all. I just gave rep for the person that solved Spineretti - those recipes are tough to solve and now thanks to the hard work, we can all make it. When I was working on pomeadrone punch I gave rep to lots of people that were also making lots of gak, blech and gunk - we all spent lots of KC trying to make that recipe. I think we should all remember to give freely of the praise (rep) and not be so critical.

If you will go up towards the top and click on the green FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), you can read ALL ABOUT REPUTATION. That should answer all of your questions, Carriejoseph.

It's OK you're new! Have you ever noticed a thumbs-up at the bottom of somebody post, below their avvie? If you click on it you can say a phrase and it will go to them. It always brightens someone's day to see they're appreciated! Rep Boxes are explained at the bottom of this post. Gifts are for people who train, and then they can send gifts to each other of WW. Bumping is actually not allowed out of the Gifted Center, so please don't do it. Rep Boxes are the number of rep someone has.

Reputation boxes aren't a contest. We shouldn't let it turn into one either. Those boxes are there to let you know how much rep a user has. If they have a lot of boxes, it means they have a lot of reputation.

I disagree completely they are there to give thanks to helpful posters without having to post thanks, or other things like that!

People "bump" a post back to the top by replying on it - that way more people can see it.

Although, I tried to bump something back to the top (2 posts that I did that no one ever replied to) and I had to write more than just "bump" for it to be accepted.
