I agree. A lot of people only give rep to people well known on the thread other than all the helpers

To be perfectly honest I never even noticed the rep boxes until this post. I think that a reputation is totally different than a popularity contest. I think I will give rep points to threads I find helpful and informative and people that are friiendly when I need some help. This site is great and everyone so far has been so kind, welcoming and helpful.

I see what you are thinking.

I used to give it to people just because they wanted some, but now I dont because I realized that actually rep should only be given out for good guides and good things like posting pics of the brand new webkinz and stuff.

I sort of agree, yes rep boxes are kind of a popularity contest. But there are people that dont give out just random free rep.

So, I think we should keep the rep boxes, because it is right to give rep to people to help you, and they should be rewarded for doing therir good work.

I think the rep boxes are a good way to show that you are helpful or nice to other WI members. It doesn't matter how many boxes you have, just as long as you are a good member.
It is also a good way to get people helping more in the Help sections too. I know I only have one box, but I'm aiming to get another one soon.

I didn't even know I had any until a few days ago. It felt good when I found them and read that I had helped a few people. Also, I think it's nice to have a little way to show my appreciation when someone helps me.

I do not agree with that at all.
Anyone helpful will get the reputation they rightly deserve.

I think you are 100% right. I know that I, for one, am just as happy, if not more, to give a reputation to someone with only one box as opposed to giving it to someone with 10.
I don't honestly think that the number of boxes that a user may have plays any role in the thanks or acknowledgement which they recieve.

Rep boxes are not a popularity contest because the staff has put in place rules regarding them. No one may offer rep to others. No one may ask for rep from others. In fact, pretty much any discussion of rep is deleted. This way, the system stays true to its original intent - a good way to say thank you.
