no, rep is when you think someone's post/thread is exceptionally good, not by how popular they are!

Reputation points are given to people when they're nice or helpful. The rep boxes show the most helpful/kind members. When I get rep, I always feel good. And when I give rep I feel good too! It's a great thing for a website like WI in my opinion. I haven't once thought about it as popularity..And it shouldn't be.

I have never thought about it as a popularity contest actually. What I think when I see the boxes I think that the WI member has been very helpful and kind to others. I personally like rep as a way to show thanks!

Nope. Rep is what you give people when they're helping out or when they make a good point or share pictures of a new webkinz, not what you give someone if you think they're popular. =)

I agree with those three. Rep is just a way to show that you like their post or thread. But I do a think that people only need to give rep, if the people deserve it. I've got a couple blank reps already!

Rep boxes are to show when someone has done a helpful deed. They are much needed at a site like WI

No,when I see people's rep boxes,I know that they helped out alot,so I most certaintly do not think of it as a popularity contest.

No they dont,They are like Rewards for when you help someone.
Think of it this way.
You get 5$ a week if you do your chores.
You dont do your chores but your little brother did.
Should you still get paid even though you didnt do anything NO!
So I think of it as a reward for being good.

OMG rep has to stay, and we should be able to give it to people through PMs and their profiles.

rep is for people that have helped you out in one way or another. that can be because they gave you advice, explained how to change your avvie or they made you really LOL. its a great way to say thanks.

but like i said we should be able to give it to people through PMs and such. i dont know how many times i have PMed a mod or admin and they helped me out big time or got me in touch with someone that helped me out. but they helped me out through a PM. the only way to give them rep for the help is to go find their last post and do it that way but then they dont know exactly why you gave them rep.

anyway thats my 2 cents
