I agree with you. It is awfully nice when someone leaves a rep note for me and I love being able to give a thumbs up for someone who has posted a thread or a post that makes me smile or gives me a laugh or who has said exactly what I have been feeling so I know I am not alone with my thoughts. I never thought of this as a popularity contest. I just assumed it was a spsecial way to show people that you think what they said was truly great.

Have a great day.

I love getting rep! I like being helpful, and means a lot to me when someone takes the time to give me rep and let me know that I helped them. I don't always have time to go back to all the threads I posted on, so sometimes rep is the only way I know I helped someone.

Default Re: Rep has to go!

I agree with you TreeHugger. Although the idea of rep is a good one that has nothing to do with popularity and IS SUPPOSED to be for helpful posts and such, I've read many threads where people say things like "You are so cool. Here's some rep for you" and then the other person will reply "Here's some back at you" or something along those lines. In both cases, neither person deserves it, especially the second who only is given rep points for giving it. I think some people are giving rep to anyone and everyone for anything in hopes of getting some in return. And some people do always give it to the same people every time they make a post and those people do it in return. So, the system is being abused and becoming a popularity contest in some cases.

I'm a little in the dark... what exactly are rep points? I know why we have them and I have both given and received them. But does it have anything to do with the green and white star thing underneath people's names? Help!

The green boxes do have to do with rep, however the star is only for how many posts you've posted. The star has nothing to do with it. The green boxes increase in number the more reps you recieve.

It is NOT a popularity contest Look at my threads, just press on my name and take a look at them...I have a WHOLE SHWACK of them that have never even been answered ...am I popular?? Am I helpful, ...in ANY way that I can be. At any time that I can be...as many times as I have to be. I am helpful. If I have knowledge to share, I share it. If I have help to share, I share it. If I have compassion to share...I think you get the picture. BUT, I help That is how I get the green boxes

Default Re: Rep has to go!

I think REP should stay too. It is a wonderful way to let someone know that you appreciate the information or simple just being so nice. It is sad if some people are abusing this function, but I still think that the majority of the people are using it right. We are all here to enjoy talking about WW and other fun things, so being friendly and helpful is the most important thing. And when someone is nice to you, wouldn't you want to do something to show that you appreciate it? I think that is all REP is about. At least it is how I look at it.
