Thumbs up To stop 'spam rep'. :)

I know everyone at one point or another has gotten spam rep; rep that is either blank or contains quite a pointless comment. What I was thinking, is if there was a 10 character rule for rep giving? Like for posting you have to have ten characters? I think spam rep would for sure go down, and members would be more content with themselves! I just feel like rep should be meaningful, although commentless reps are nice, I think adding a nice message is just a polite gesture. Ya know? Tell me what you think.

Good idea, but I don't think they would care about it. They'd probly just post ........................ or something.

This is a good idea, but sometimes I don't put any comment in the reputation just because I don't feel that I need to. But I still want to give reputation to someone for a helpful post

Well, if they made that rule then everyone would most likely have 2 or 3 less rep bars. Sometimes people give short comments that still mean something. Like Good luck, Cool Club, Luff you, and stuff like that.
Also sometimes people don't write a comment because the reason they gave the rep was obvious.

I don't really liek this idea, but that's my opinion. Good luck

To be honest, I don't think anyone cares if they get spam rep. I mean, it is rep. And if you want rep, your not gonna flag it and tell the Mod/Admin to delete it.

Just my two pennies worth.

Default Re: To stop 'spam rep'. :)

I don't really think a 10 letter rule would help.
The point of giving rep is to give it to beneficial/helpful posts, not to just give it to be giving it.
So somebody could still just give random rep.
Plus, rep messages are supposed to be short. You don't want to write a whole lot for them.
Most of the time, I get ones that are like "Good Job" "Good Luck" "Good idea" "Praying", stuff like that.

Personally, I don't care how many bars I have, it's about what I did to get them; and if the rep I have isn't for something that I've done helpful or good then I don't want it. I realize that sometimes it can be obvious, but it is still a nice gesture to leave an encouraging and sweet comment to that person that you repped.
Thank you for sharing your opinion, I appreciate it.

Good idea, but just like post count, people still do "...". Personally, it's not the length of a message that gives a rep it's substance. It's the amount of thought placed into it, not length nor is it using a bunch of love and kindness. It's about thought and effort that gives it its meaning.

I'm sorry but I don't agree. What is someone was very kind and viewed something you worked hard on and you wrote Thanks and gave them a rep. Now Thanks isn't ten characters. I think it is just fine the way it is. I also agree with Mickey26.

I don't think this will help.
I mean, like every said... no matter what someone will always find a way around it,
Plus, sometimes I go to type in a rep message and accidentally hit enter on my keyboard and its submits half entered rep message or no rep message at all.
So just because it doesn't say anything doesn't mean that its 'spam' rep.
