I just was wondering everyones' opinions on reputation. What's yours?
I think it's sort of good. It lets members feel good. Plus, it tells everyone they're nice. But, that doesn't mean everyone should leave out the new users.
But, I have another view. IT makes Wi a popularity contest again. Some users like to talk to the 'popular' users of WI, which usually have a lot of rep boxes. So, Don't forget other members!
I think reputation points and boxes are overall good.
If someone is having a down day, going and checking their rep and seeing someone left them one is a great feeling! It's a boost to a member feeling not so good, and it really can make them feel good. I also see it as a warm virtual *fuzzy* hug, as Gingerly says. It really can leave a nice end to someone's day, if it is well written and supportive.
Newer members, sure, probably do not have too much rep, but soon- oh soon, they will, if they keep on being helpful and supportive!! Whenever I see a gray rep box, I give them rep and "light up their candle". I tell them "Welcome to WI!" or something of the like.
Members with a lot of rep earned it. It's not that they just were lazy and spammed and people gave them rep. They helped out around the forum!
Though, as some say, rep can be abused, but I think it's overall a good addition to the forum.
Also~~~ remember, GIVE REP and the REP may come back to you, even if not from the same person!!
They can be shown as a "hey i am SOO cool cause i have more rep boxes than you" type of sign *breath*
BUT - it does give you a good feeling when you see more rep in ur CP. So, i tihnk overall is good. it shows how much youve been kind, helpful and pretty much.. well, nice!!
