Default Re: REMINDER: Don't make a thread just for the rep points!!

I think this is a great reminder! So many people just post threads for rep,if someone did a godd thing you should not be afraid to give rep,that isn't what I mean but it's easy to separate the well written-well meaning threads from the "rep-fishing" ones.

That is not a stupid question! I have the same one! How would someone know if the message was created for the "rep points"? As a new person to WI, I often see the "WI lingo" used in messages like this. It is confusing.

Most of the new people really want to find the information they need. It is an extra challenge for the members that are kids and the computer newbies. By the way, many kids are better on computers than the adults.

When I know the topic of my question, I go to that category on the site. Sometimes I don't know what category the question is. The last time I tried a search, I got 270 messages to look through. I looked through the first couple dozen and gave up. I suspect that some of the requests are from members who can not find the information that they need.

It may be annoying to some people that have seen the same questions dozens of times. It is great experience to know the questions and the answers. My request is that you think of ways to make the information clear and organized for the new members. That will hopefully cut down on the same questions being asked.

For example, what are the things that all new WI members need to know in their first week and first month? Direct them to those tips. Can this information be sent to all new WI members at different milestones (i.e. join date, 10 posts completed, 1 month anniversary, etc.)? With all this great experience, there must be ideas on how to make it better.

its actually against WI rules to offer rep to people for posting on your thread or to answer your question. now if you just give them rep for posting or answering a question that absolutely fine. hope this helps and thanks for the reminder

the only stupid question is the question unasked.

rep points = reputation points, are a way to say thank you to someone for helping you out, answering your question or sometimes for making you laugh. rep is very good, it lets you tell someone you appreciate that they took the time to help.

if you look under someones avvie you will see a red flag, a thumbs up, a person, and a male or female symbol. well the last one explains itself it lets you know the gender of the member. the person tells you if the member is online or not (color=online) red flag for you to let the WI staff know if a thread or post is breaking the rules and the thumbs up is for rep. just click it and a box will pop up and you can type a thank you or leave it blank and then click "add to rep". i hope this answers you question

I don't want to point fingers.... but I've seen guides that will say 'You can give me rep points if you want!'.
Or 200 'How to make good posts' guides that all say the same thing.
