What's important is who you are on the inside. Not what you seem like on the outside.

just joined in March. I, for example joined in August of 2007....no wonder I have
more boxes....I've been here so much longer than you and have had more time
for people to get to know me, than you have.
If you had joined the same time as me, I'm sure you'd have more boxes
than I do.

I agree that a lot of members use it as a random thing especially in open mike.

Ok, I guess rep isn't as important as I thought it was. I guess I just overreacted. Thanks for commenting guys!

Default Re: Rep

I see your point, you mean rep should be given out for the right reasons being helpful to a member etc. But I do disagree because most of my rep is for just being nice, which I think is alright. Why? Because it means I have a reputition for being nice.

Default Re: Rep

I disagree, I think most people use the rep system for what it is intended to be. I went and looked at the latest reputation, and none of it has been for the wrong reasons. I think it the year I have been here, I have gotten 5 points that were not for being helpful/nice, etc. [lilpad's reason which is also my reason]

Yes, that is true. But I know a few people who joined before me and have the same amount of rep as me. And I know for some reason, Staff have a lot of rep Mainly because everyone knows them by their bold, colorful names
But I know a few members as well who have rep like the Staff does.

I think if something is put in place for a good reason, there is always someone who will use it for something other than for what it was intended. Rep points are good when they are used to tell others about someone who is helpful and can be trusted. But there are others who are using this process to give a gift to new members of WI. Why? I don't know.

Some examples are seen with some of the people who are posting on this thread, including me. Some posters are Lil'Kinz with 2 posts and they have at least on rep point. I have 36? posts and I have 2 rep points; the first one came in response to my post in the "Hi! I'm Joe!..." thread. The other one was earned. Maybe this gift of a rep point was supposed to make me feel good and be a welcome gift. But I don't feel good about it. I just mentally discount the number by one and always will.

I think there are more of us who are using it for it's intended use. Let's keep doing it so the Lil'Kinz out there, and some of us not-so-much-older-than-Lil'Kinz, will know who the trusted people are.

Default Re: Rep

I don't quite agree on that one, I think most common way for people to give out reps is just because they are a good friend or if they have helped or been nice (etc)

Such as, I've been to the 'Help' thread and helped alot! But I usually don't get rep. Yet, when I get rep on the Daily Chat Thread.. I have like 3 reps a week... (i know that's not alot. xD)
