Default Re: When you give Rep please, do NOT do this.

Sometimes there is just nothing to say. They used to be 'thanks' points. It was a way to thank people. I think it showed exactly how many we had. Then things got ugly and they stopped using them all together. I don't think it's that big of a deal. Everything about it is pretty private until you get (I think) 100 points. Then it switches to 2 green marks, etc.

Now the insulting or negative reps.....THAT's another story. I think those should be removed and the person that sent it should be reprimanded.

I agree with you on that!


I have gotten blank rep before. To me, a rep is like a high five or a pat on the shoulder. Some people just like to give them out to make someone else smile (as stated above in another post). Anything that makes me smile is an okay thing in my book.

If you still have the loser rep or any other negative/questionable rep points that are still viewable (I don'tlike that they only show the past ten for alot of reasons...but this is a really good reason why they should try to keep at least 25-50 in view, or allow us to move our rep points into a file like pms.)

Anyway back to my point, if you still have them I would report them now. No one has a right to be that mean and in my opinion. And I feel it is almost twice as mean because they did it under the guise of a system meant for postive comments. And my guess is that they probably thought that rep points could not be reported so instead of pming an insult, they used the rep system.

And I am very sorry for everyone that has recieved mean and/or inappropriate coments within the rep system. It is abusive behavior toward the person recieving them and the WI system.

Default Re: When you give Rep please, do NOT do this.

I just laugh 'Loser' reps off 99% of the time it is because they were proven wrong, disagreed or were caught in an embellishment. Those don't worry me. I have seen ones where they were left blank. In order for me to see what the person was drawing attention to, I go back and look. More often than not it is because the information in that post WAS helpful. Not because someone wanted to just randomize their rep distribution.
If the rep that you got was a 'Loser' rep or derogatory, tell a moderator and they will remove the offensive statement.

This is something I do agree with! If a person HAS been offensive they should be reprimanded. Same as in any other circumstance where it is highly visible to the public. If it is offensive it is offensive. If ain't sumpin' you'd say to yer Mama, it OUGHTN'T be said!

Just to let you know, I did flag this idea for the mods!! Awesome idea! Now if only vBulletin will let it happen AND if it does not put a strain on WI's server. (which is why some items were removed from our cp home to begin with)

To me "The meaning of Rep points" is..
A way that you used good judgement in the topic of discussion..
To participate in the positive feedbacks of discussion
Contributed a Positive outlook to the discussion
And the most Important ..to me anyway..
Is the Outcome of the Reputation that you leave, will be passed onwards to others to do the same(ie..helpful hints,notes..positive attitudes..good judgement calls..etc)

IF you do get a mean rep, please let an admin know. We can remove it for you so that you don't have to see it and we can talk to the member too. Rep is something that is supposed to make you feel nice, not bad.
