Wink Making THIS mandatory- could help eliminate random rep...

I don't know about you guys, but I don't like when people go about giving out random rep...
I mean, I've gotten rep. on some threads that weren't even 1% helpful and still got rep... and it doesn't feel that good knowing that I didn't earn it...


So I was thinking that maybe instead of making leaving a comment optional, to make it mandatory...
It could convince people to actually give you rep. for a reason not just randomly hit that thumbs up button...

What do you guys think?...

Thanks for reading

I have gotten random reputation points and I agree. I have gotten MANY rep saying, Haha funny; or You are funny. I enjoy getting reps, but I think that people should give rep because they deserve it. Not just because they are being funny and such.

I think this could be a good addition, but it can't make people write a message. They could just type in a random letter, like "a" for example, and just leave the rep. This is a nice idea with a great intention though!

I see... maybe making a 10-letter rule or something along those lines might help... but people could still type something random...

i always give out rep points whenever someone replies one of my polls because it helps me with the topic (like which do u like better, etc.) so would that be considered random rep? i dont think so...

No thats fine, I do that too

Random rep. is like going around the forum and giving out rep. to random people for no reason...

Default Re: Making THIS mandatory- could help eliminate random rep...

I politely disagree. If I am having a bad day, and if I see a post that just makes me smile, I will usually give a rep to that person. I don't think that is random. I usually write, "Oh my that is so funny. Thanks for making me smile today."

Also, sometimes I really want to give a rep to someone who has been especially helpful to me. However, I have to "spread it around" before I can give them another rep (since I gave them a rep for something else previously). So I usually go through the "Look what I got" threads and give reps to the members who have few posts and who want to share the third webkinz they got or something. They aren't being helpful to me, but I still enjoy giving them reps that say something like "Thanks for sharing with us!" After a few of these, then I can go give rep to the person who was especially helpful to me.

I agree that it should be necessary to write at least 10 letters when leaving a rep. I dislike getting a blank rep.
