Nooooo, just because someone has been on WI for 1 year, that doesn't mean they have tons of rep boxes! Someone could be on the site a MONTH and have a lot of rep. It just depends on how much you contribute to the site, help out, and show kindness. It has nothing to do with how long you have been on the site. Just try your best to help out and be kind and I'm sure you'll get some rep.

You have rep points! That's why the little box under your stars is green.

I like giving rep and I like getting rep. But, I don't think it changes the way we interact with people at WI. Are you going to listen to someone more because they have a lot of boxes? I don't think so. Also, the rep boxes are too dependent on things like time spent on WI, or what threads you visit (regulars at the DCTs always seem to have TONS of rep, I doubt they are more helpful than many people here, but they do regularly interact with people who give rep.)

Bottom line -- I don't mind them, I just don't think they improve the site.

Yes, I was wondering whether this could be done myself. I would like to be able to thank people with rep who helped me out via PM as well as on the regular boards.

Default Re: Rep has to go!

I agree totally with you Jacksmom! I liked it before, when I started you could give and get rep however there was no way to tell how much rep anyone had, so when you got a rep point it was very special and I valued it. Now I think people are just having competitions for rep and it really isn't what it is for. I think it is a way of expressing your thanks to someone or expressing your agreement for a great post, not because someone is popular, or because they are your friend I wish it would go back to the way it was when only the user could see their reps, then it wouldn't be an issue at all.

Default Re: Rep has to go!

One other point I would like to make is it seems that some peoples feelings are being hurt because they don't have lots of boxes, and so perhaps it would be best to put it back the way it was, it is not worth having people get so sad and feel unimportant over. All people are created equal, and having hundreds of green boxes or having one doesn't make one better or more likeable than the other

I agree with you! I have had people PM me and been so very helpful when I have been stumped and yet, there is no way to give them rep for that. I think we should have that ability.

No way, rep is a reward for helping people. It's a great way to show thanks to someone, also.
