I agree with you.
I've been getting some rep that says something like "hello" in it on a completely random post I've made.

I understand what you are saying and I totally agree, if someone thinks you were helpful or nice or even said something that made their day... whatever their reason is for adding to your reputation it should be followed up with a simple message too. Perhaps it would be possible to setup something in the system to enable the person who received the acknowledgment to delete it if they feel it is a frivolous rep point.

I agree. It feels like you "cheated," when it comes to getting reps. This is like my dog, he won't eat the treat unless you make him do some tricks. (Its true!)
People need to look at the idea first.

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

Another thing. I converse with a lot of people via PMs and VMs. Sometimes they help me out through these conversations or simply say something really nice. Since I can't give reps on profiles or through PMs, I will just find their most recent post (by searching their statistics and clicking their last post). So even though it might be a random post, I'll give rep to it for the help given to me on my profile or something.

I agree, and i know how you feel. Random rep, or "nice avvy" reps arent very... awesome. i mean, rep is rep, and thats cool, but knowing you didnt deserve it... it doesnt feel right. either that, OR if WI could let up take AWAY rep. ...That could be weird, but i might work... xD

I agree. If you're going to take the time to give someone a rep, please take five seconds to fill out the box.

I agree here. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love getting rep, HOWEVER, I want to know that it was because I helped someone. I want to be able to look at my bars and say 'Wow, I really must have helped a lot of people."

I agree. I've only given random rep once and that was on the DCT because i had to spread it around.
But on threads where its like "I just got a dog!" There is no rep needed.
