Default Re: REP OVER-VIEWING

I give reps to someone if.....
- they make me laugh or smile or move me in some way
- they did something really creative that is refreshing from the "same old" threads
- if I agree with someone for making a valid point
- if I disagree but their agrument was thought out and logical
- the information they provided was helpful
- it appears as if they spent a lot of time doing something ie....having a webbies pre-school

The "fluffiest" rep I give is to everyone who accepts my befriend request; thanking them, because it made me happy to get a new friend. Some would call that "wasteful" and some wouldn't.

I think giving reps is a matter of individual preference - as long as it is not abused. Individuality is what makes the world go around! Everyone's personality is unique: some people like giving and some people like getting; some people are extroverts and some are introverts. Reps are the same way and are a reflection of one's personality. I happen to be a giver and I have (on occasion) exceeded my rep daily limit. It makes me happy to "reward" someone with a rep if they've done somethings that I like (and everyone likes different things) - am I beating this to death now???

I don't think that reps should be reserved for just your friends. It would be abusive if friends did "fluffy" exchanges to each other just to rack up points.

I think juliaandella said it well...."it isn't important in the grand scheme of things and it makes no major difference anyway".

So basically live and let live!

Oh and thanks runlikethe wind for starting this thread. Personally, I don't agree with you. However, it made people passionate about a particular subject and it kept me up for the 3 am Asian rare. I'M GIVING YOU A REP! ......see what I mean

Giving Rep has nothing to do with being popular. If someone has alot of
Rep boxes, it simply means that person is *frequently* helpful, kind,
considerate and supportive.
In*real life* are you stingy in giving thanks to people? No? Then why would
you be stingy here? It takes so little of your time, but makes the other person
feel wonderful.......think about it........

I give them out whenever I see a helpful & kind post. If you choose not to, that's your choice. But, as Gingerly said, in the real world, are you stingy to give out thanks?

Default Re: REP OVER-VIEWING

No offence, but I think people should be able to give rep to whoever they want to and for whatever they want without it mattering to anyone else . It doesn't hurt anyone, and there's always a reason for doing it. The only thing that I think is wrong, is people giving reps to friends to get alot of boxes. I think WI was much better without these rep boxes because people helped just because they wanted to.

ITA- unless the first poster actually is helpful. But just- oh first post is a waste.

I try to give rep for people that help me out, or reply to my threads, but sometimes I can't figure how to do it- or try to give a return rep point to someone and get sent off to a different thread or spot and can't figure out how to do it.

Even to someone who's helped me in a PM, I can't figure out that either, but I really do appreciate their time.

I felt kinda disappointed when I really go out of my way to help someone and they don't acknowledge it. Even just a thanks in the thread would make me feel good that they appreciated my time and effort to reply, ykwim.

I understand that it also becomes a popularity contest, and that's a bad thing. I think it's better without the rep, and people just helping out to be helpful. You see so many people duplicating with others say, or going back and editing posts, to try to get rep points. That's not right either.

Good for you, that would discourage me too. That's not the intent of what you were doing.

wow, that was very well written, I couldnt agree with you more! rep to you.

In the not-for-profit work world, if you are a volunteer with a program and you suggest a project, then you become in charge of that project. Unless you can convince others that it is a really awesome project, then you will find that you are doing it by yourself if you think it is important enough.

I think if runlikethewind wants to have every rep point reviewed for accuracy, runlikethewind's credentials should be reviewed by the WI staff, then runlikethewind should create a public policy paper on how rep points will be reviewed for accuracy and submit it to WI staff and then to all WI users so that they understand how rep points will be approved.

Then, runlikethewind should create the team that reviews rep points every day. If runlikethewind can not get a team together then its all up to rltw.

I support runlikethewind in pursuing this project if rltw thinks it is important.

Good luck with your project from this poster as I think I am not convinced of the worthiness of the time it takes versus the need for quality control of rep points.

I give rep when I have time and inclination, that's it. It think that's the idea of rep-give it when you are so moved.
