Here is an example of what people have written when they gave me rep. It makes me feel great that I have helped so many members and I love reading the comments whenever I see a new rep point in my User CP. Rep is nice but I also love reading when someone simply says thank you in their thread after I have helped them, they don't have to give me rep and I never expect it, thanks is enough.
I have never once helped a person just because there is chance I will get rep. I help because I remember what it's like being new and needing help.
Seriously it just tells me who has been on WI longest. You can tell which posters know each other etc... I could care less if it stays or goes though. It isn't hurting me one bit for some of you to have 100's of reps while others have none. Despite the fact that I know that some with no rep points have indeed posted helpful posts.
Heck I don't think I have any rep points, yet I always try to be helpful, but I've found on more than on occasion my posts get pulled, or I am completely ignored. ::: shrugs :::
Rep does not have to go as long as people use it and "spend it" wisely.
Rep is for when people do something great to help you or others. Or it could be that if a person was scammed and another person sent you an item! Also, if someone just seems like a nice person. Or even if you asked the person to do you a favor. Yes people use it as popularity, but if they "spent" their rep wisely then we wouldn't have these problems!
Heres a challenge for everyone: Pretend for the rest of November you ONLY have 10 rep points to give away! Are you going to give it to your friends, or people that helped you or others? Please post if you will take my challenge.
Thanks for the info everyone! Do rep points have anything to do with pms? I've noticed that some people will include icons in their signatures that say something like, "This is Bob Loblaw. Pm me to give him food or he will starve." Why do they want a pm?
Nope, Rep doesn't have anything to do the PMs. PMs are just to communciate with someone privately. Although, it would be a good idea to have an option to give people rep from a PM or profile message.....
