I could not agree with you more. Rep points to you!!!

well i do agree that the need for rep is outrageous, even though it doesnt mean much!
i disagree that they should be taken away though! just cuz if theres someone who is a huge help, very trusted... then people can see that there a good person to go to

Alright so Rep. Points are not for populartity!! They are for when you do good things they are basiclly things that said that you did a good job, and dont even look at them when you are posting. They arent even that special to me, they dont matter. I wouldnt be like okay if i do this type of thread i will get rep points!! I wont do that i only do what i have to do becuase thats what i have to do.

so thank you for taking the time to read this post and thank you for listening to me

I think that rep points should be kept. I don't think that they are a popularity contest because we don't give it because we think that they are popular. ( you shouldn't) Rep is supposed to be for helpfulness, not popularity.

......and here's another thought.....Many members help others via PMs, which we
can't possibly know about, or *see.*
Rep points are absolutely given, for help through pms.

I believe reputation is something that really makes people feel good about themselves. If reputation is given appropriately, it should never become a popularity contest. You give it when something is helpful and not just because they are "popular" or it is the "cool thing to do."

I think it would be a huge shame if they were removed because the users that are very helpful deserve that one little thing for what they do. If you look at and are envious at all of the users with lots of bars--then you can be one. All you have to do is be helpful!

Lastly, I think if anything, it is a motivation for people to be even more helpful.
