I don't care about Rep either. I've never even given out Rep. I do have some Rep, but I don't really care. WI is about Webkinz, not the race to see how many posts or Rep points someone has. I think everyone should understand that. At least the people who have posted great things on this thread. I am glad I am still just a webkinz. I'm going to be a Webkinz until I decide to leave WI.
Don't ever feel that you are "just a webkinz" because you are not just anything--you are a member of WI. We are all just members of a website to help and be helped, as Penny Lane so wonderfully puts it. Labels should not mean a thing.

I also agree about reputation you should not ask for them. The meaning about being nice and helping people is feeling good about helping somebody,knowing you did something right and not expecting something in return. What they also do is random reputation were you randomly give out reputation points to people. To me that is the same as asking for reputation but saying it in a different way. Is this really what you want WI to be about? Like you said don't make guides that are already made or that are not needed or just copying a guide. These are all examples of what you said.
You have wonderful thoughts!

Also, people are always trying to be Top Poster on the DCT. It really doesn't matter what place your in. The TP could have short replies and spam on there. And if you try to be TP, you'd be on the computer all day and that's not good. I dislike it when someone says, "I'm going to beat so-and-so at TP! (:" It doesn't matter how much rep you have either. Like last night the DCT had a *rep fest* and everyone gave out random rep and everyone gained 2 boxes. Now, I don't think they deserved those boxes. Random rep isn't right.

LilyRose, you got it right on the button. How many posts you have, giftz pointz, rep, or how many starts doesn't matter, what matters is helping others with problems. I hope people will understand what you are saying here, because this is the best explanation of WI I've ever come across, and I've come across many. I think you need to add this thing with insider insider, lost of people are feeling left out because of it. Thank you for bringing this to everyone's attention.

I know what you mean, sure I , myself, Might be excited to get my rainbow stars soon...but I am working on earning it. Not gaining it out of "No. Yes. and Nopes."
I think people shouldn't be so obsessed over their reps and stars, earn them over time...not by trying to rush.


Great thread

You and me are kind of in the same place---you with the rainbows and me with the spinny. I am close but I refuse to make any post anything less then my best just to make it come sooner. I am doing everyone a disservice by doing that, mostly myself.

Thanks for this post LilyRose, or I guess I should say thanks for reviving an old one.

I occasionally venture out of my normal WI haunts and look for interesting posts elsewhere. It is at those times I run across people comparing the scores or status they have received, asking for rep points or ratings. And I see people complaining about rude posts. And I realize that my “sheltered” existence is of my own making (and I intend to keep it that way!). If I see something I don’t like, I just don’t read any further. I have limited time for WW and WI and I certainly don’t want to waste it even reading something someone wrote in text-speak, let alone a whole thread of posts saying nothing at all but “me too”. I am sure I sometimes miss out on information that would be useful or interesting because of my habit to just go to another area of the forum (but if it is really useful I am sure I will hear of it elsewhere on WI!)

I try to help if I have something to add, and have even received some rep points myself. Nice of them. But to me, it feels good to help, not to get another rep point. When I have a similar problem to someone else and I read the answers to their questions, I have occasionally given rep points. And I have wished I could give minus points for the people who respond saying “i dunno aobout that”. But I probably wouldn’t give minus points even if I could. Some of these posters are children who haven’t learned email or forum etiquette yet, and we will hope they will learn by example here.
