As this thread says, rep is not important anyway.
Your nice comments are worth more to me.

Thank you for making this thread!

WI is such a wonderful place, where people can find things that they have in common with others. If you just post little short comments like that to threads you hardly even read or care about, what's the point?

It doesn't matter whether you have gold boxes, spinning stars, or have a high status. Everyone is the same here, really, (even though we're all different at the same time!). So it's best not to reply to a thread just to get a few more posts.

THANK YOU! REP!

Yes, my motto is to ONLY post on a thread where I can actually contribute my two cents.

I agree. This is a very good post and I'd like to point out some things I really liked about it.

First of all, I like how you put quality over quantity.

I also liked the part about copying threads. We do not need any reminder threads that have been posted at least five times. I also have had some of my more successful thread ideas copied and passed off as someone else's. That does not feel good, I can assure you.

I agree with you, completely! I think people need to go back and take a look at the TRUE meaning of this site. It's definitely about more than how many reps and posts you have and how many friends. I've seen that it has become nothing more than a popularity contest for some, and that's just terrible. I could not have said this better myself. Quality not Quantity, people should not post just for the sake of adding to their count. No post should be made for a rep point, it should be made to help out and share kind words. SPAM should be the last thing people think to post when we are on such a wonderful site there is no need for spam. People really need to remember the true meaning, and I hope everyone sees this thread. [rep]

I completely agree!
and, when i was new to WI, i posted and said stuff like, "Hi! Im New Here!", and i think, that less people welcomed new users then, because everyone ignored me.
i hope more people start to care less about post count and rep, and start caring about haveing a nice conversation that means something, be valued by your generosity, not your post count!

I agree completely! I don't care about reps, in fact I would be OK if I didn't get any at all! The other day I got a rep for helping a new member to a club. It made me feel sooo good. Not because I am one rep closer to another rep box than I was, but because I helped. If there is a poll and I can't think of anything to say, I just vote and move on. Half the time I don't even pay attention to my post numbers so I didn't even notice when I gained a star. Odds are, when I get my rainbows, I wont even notice. I like your "Quality not Quantity" motto. I thank you for making this thread, I am sure it will help others like it did me! Enjoy your day

Thanks for posting this thread! I think that I might have been caught in the 'ooh so close to 4 rep boxes' and 'I'm posting this just to get closer to rainbows' mojo a little bit. While it does feel good to get rep and have rainbow stars that is not the point of WI at all. I will start to rethink my posts a little bit more and try to give rep a little less 'randomly' (meaning -> not that i give random rep in the first place but just on well made posts and for people who i find helpful (like you)). I think that while rep boxes/stars should stay they are overrated. It feels good to get more rep and get more boxes, but it shouldn't feel good if you got them out of a "fisherman's thread" (rep fishing) Thanks again for posting this!

I agree, and I'm very happy you made this thread.
Lately, people seem to make these threads and not even know what they're saying. They pretty much 'copy', if that's the right word, something that someone else said just for rep. It's wrong. I know, it feels good to get another star, or rainbows, or to be promoted to a Gift Trainee, or to have your 10,000th post and a new orange rep box, but think, people!!! You can gloat all you want, say whatever you want to a member with one star, or one rep box, or 30 posts! It hurts. It really, really does. You may not realize it, but we can make a difference by sharing a laugh, making someone smile, or just having a simple conversation with someone. In the 'Somebody Help!" area of the Forum, I see threads with 100 posts and 1,000 views (maybe not that many..), and another one with no posts at all with like, 46 views! WI is to make friends, chat, and help others. It's not a popularity contest. So, if you do see a thread with no posts and a ridiculous amount of views, lend a hand! Even if you can't help, let the person know that you've tried, not that you just saw the thread, said "Psh, I have no clue." and clicked away! It's nice to at least give a minute to read something over, and really think about it! So, you totally deserve a rep, for reminding us all that it's not about what your rank is, or how many posts or stars you have, it's about caring for one another and taking the time to explain things.
