........ You may be mistaking the amount of Rep Boxes a person has, with
how popular they are....but this isn't true. Take a look under their Avie, at the
date they joined WebkinzInsider. I think you'll find the member has been here a
long time. Those boxes are not accumulated *over-night*......it takes many
months and lots of time spent online here.
.....It's so simple, really. A Reputation Point equals a *written* thank you.
Someone took a minute of their time to write a little comment of thanks........
Thankyous for any, or all of these reasons......
....for being kind.
....for being supportive.
....for being cheerful and welcoming.
....for being helpful.

For the person receiving a Reputation Point....it's just like a *warm fuzzy*....making
you feel good inside.
.....Take away Reputation Boxes? Why would you take away *warm fuzzies?*

i really don't mond the rep boxes. look at who has the most rep. usually the mods, founders, admins, and other posters who you see all the time. these people are also commited to WI and spend lots of time on here. therefore, they are the most helpful and deserve the rep.

I couldn't agree more Gingerly...I have been a member of WI since May of 2007...and long before they removed the rep boxes I had just a bar or 2...then they went away for quite awhile...when they returned my rep had grown quite a bit...earned through posts just like you've mentioned I'd like to think...so since they weren't visable to anyone...for soooo long...I can't see how they could be considered a popularity thing!

And I enjoy giving them out to deserving people...that gives me every bit the warm fuzzy as it does to receive them!

This is just my opinion but I have 4 rep boxes and I don't think I am a popular person on here. Every time I make a thread I usually have less than 10 replies. I do however love to help whenever I can and try my best to make people feel welcome.
Being popular isn't as important to me as reading a "Thanks for helping me" either on a thread or in my User CP. I have friends who are way more popular on here and only have 1 or 2 green bars so I do apologize for disagreeing but I don't think the rep boxes are popularity related. They just mean those people love to help out.

interesting opinions, every single one of you.

i think it is how you look at it. it's your perspective. if you are very competitive then maybe you will look at it like a popularity contest, when really it not that. it's the kindness someone takes and the minute or two to compliment a person for doing what's right and sharing knowledge with others. IT'S EXACTLY A WARM FUZZY! and everyone needs one now and then, so take a minute to read a post and compliment them on a job well done! it's worth it!
