Default The possible option of not being able to view our rep, but still see the rep boxes :)

Hi Everyone!
Lately I was on another forum. All forums are different, in one way or another, and for a while I couldn't find my rep (In case you don't know what rep [or reputation] is, here's a link from the FAQ: WebkinzInsider.Com Webkinz Forum - FAQ: User Profile Features). When I finally found it, I kept checking it afterward, wanting to see if I had more. I think that may be part of the problem with rep, you want more so you only do things for the sake of getting rep, not the sake of helping others. When I didn't see it, I didn't worry about it.
Maybe, we could somehow have an option where we can make it so we can't view our own rep?
I'd like to hear what your opinion on this, so please post!
And thank you for reading.

Well, if you're curious you're curious.
If you don't really care all that much, you can disable rep, but other than that I think it's just up to you to not care as much about whether you got a rep for this or that.

I know, sometimes it's so tempting.
But I think it would be nice if we could still see our rep boxes. Just not why we got the rep.

Very good point!

One of the great things about a forum like this is that we get to be around friends that share a common hobbie....like webkinz.

I do not see Rep. points as a status symbol so much. I see it as a way of telling someone "hey you did a great job!" or "wow you have learned so much!" or even.."I never thought of that..rep point for you!"

Most of us do not run around trying to gather up rep points, we give them to each other as friends would give "thank yous" or "congratulations!"


If you see it as something you focus on and need. and they bother you..you can ask a mod to turn them off for you.

Just relax and have fun on WI.

You can disable your rep and then not check

I can see your point here completely but I don't think being unable to view what rep was received and why would help the problem you mentioned.

Luckily for the most part people here on WI are more interested in being a good friend or helping others out than attempting to grab rep at every opportunity.

There are always those few exceptions and I usually just ignore those type of posts/people as I find it pretty easy to tell who is doing that.

If you personally do not wish to view or have rep than as Canonymous said you can disable rep

You can always just not check, or you can disable it. There shouldn't have to be an in-between for something you can compromise using a simple choice.
