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
You can just go to one of thier posts and rep them that way. Hope I helped!

I've had a few reps and they are all from different people and mostly people I don't know. I've gotten one or two for just posting on someones thread, but most are from people I helped. I've also gotten some for just making someone laugh. I've given a lot for people who helped me directly or when I see someone's kindness to someone else and also when someone's post made me smile or laugh. I didn't know them either and also wouldn't know how popular they are.

omg I said about the same thing. People say that "Rep Boxes aren't the same as popularity threads" but they kind of are. Almost everyone gives their friends reps just to be nice!

I don't think people look at someone with a lot of rep and say "Wow, they're popular." When I see someone with a lot of rep, I see "Wow, they must be really nice and contribute quite a bit." Rep is just a nice way to thanks someone for what they have done. I think these popularity contests are in our head. I don't pay any attention to who is popular or not on here, and I never see any of these popularity contests that are always being talked about.

i have to disagree with that statement. most of the people that i give rep to or get rep from i dont know who they are, with the exception of Dixiecup. i dont know her personally but we have talked a few times here on WI and i have given her rep because she is always wondering around the site and giving people such great advice and i think she deserves a great big thanks!!!

I think rep is good, however I don't think it is used the way it is supposed to and others don't give rep to others when they should receive it and I don't think it should be given back to someone just because someone gave you rep unless their comment or suggestion has helped you or could help others in return.

Default Re: Rep has to go!

I think REP was a great idea, but the way some people are using it... it, it, isn't good. i don't think it's fair to give rep out randomly, and to more "popular" members. It was supposed to be a good thing, but i beleive some members abused it, and aren't thinking about it carefully. I'm about to give someone on this thread REP, because they had a well written post, with a good point. i think that's what rep is about, to help people who are confused, or friendless to find nice people who will treat them well. I don't beleive it's good when friends give friends bundles, and bundles of rep, because there nice to them, Espeically when there mean or exclusive to other members.
