Red face Sad about rep. boxes? Look here!!!

I have heard many comments on the rep. boxes. Some are VERY mad about it and some are happy with it. At frist I was very upset but now I have seen a new light. We are still the same helpful people we were before. If you have changed and are not helpful anymore because of the rep. boxes being taken away then I beleve that you never really were. The boxes did show how helpful we were but not truth fully. The reson I say this is because some people have been here sence May so they've had longer to earn it. Others have made one great gudie that got them ALOT.(i'm not saying there not helpful) Others have just been radomly picked to help get that person more rep. Now someone who joined but is still helpful will have close to none. New people would look at rep. boxes not the posts. I think now we will have to look at the post and person not at the little green squres. I still want to have rep. but i'm gald i'm not going to be juged by how many boxes I have. I think everyone feels the same.

That is an EXCELLENT way of looking at it! I though about the exact same thing because yeah i felt the same way about how new members would look only at the "pretty green boxes" below the users name. I know this because my friend has just joined, and i think she is VERY helpful, but because she is new, she isnt getting much rep, and truthfully im not either, even though i THOUGHT i was very helpful, but i guess that im not. I really try to be, and i hope that you continue to post more threads because they are always so helpful!!! thanks!

My reply: See this is why they were taken away. people think they aren't helpful then stop haelping(not saying you do.) You are VERY helpful and now you will see we will ALL see that we help and all have the same rep. It toke me a LONG time to get my 4 rep. boxes.

I sorta agree. But I hate it. Just because some people were using it as a popularity contest, why take the advantage away from the rest of us that were earning it? It's not fair. I finally worked up to three boxes, and I was working towards a fourth. I like those boxes. They showed me that I was helpful. I know they'll still be there and all- it's just that... ugh. I just don't like it and i'm really upset about it... =[ You just earned yourself some reputation for speaking the truth, informing, and stating a good point. And that's not for popularity, you earned it.

My reply: I never thought of it that way. Great point. Yes not all of us did this. I did enjoy working toward my next box. Sence my post number was about as high as it would go for a while. I do wish they would have stayed then again i'm sure it will help in the long run.

I completely agree. Although I will miss my rep boxes, it will definitely help many WI members not popularize people. Well said, rep point.

Yes, I will miss them too. I loved seeing them but I think it will help.

I'm not sure. I mean on the one hand, being judged by your squares wasn't good. On the other hand, people look at how many stars a person has as well. Is it better to judge a person by their number of posts than for their number of good deeds?

I do agree, but i think that i really LOVED and i rele MISS the boxes,

I also thought that they where helpful becasue if you saw someone with lots of boxes, you new that you could ask them for help!
Also .. iloved the littlesaying when you scrolled over them .

I do agree with you completly ..but . Now.. I dont see why we even have rep points.. how is the person you gave them to benefiting?
