Thumbs up Why a limit on kind words?

Why is there a limit on giving out reputation?I mean it's not like it can all go to the same person. In a 24 hour period you are only allowed to give out so much. Reputation is a way to make other people feel good and just to make their day. Hey, it sure brightens up my mood to see someone took the time to write a complement to me even if it didn't raise their post count. What is the limit anyway because it seems like it came up pretty fast.
I was just scrolling through threads that caught my attention and posting and finding posts i thought were heartfelt, meaningful or well said to give reputation to and then this popped up.

when they decided to give the rep boxes back, they included this limit, as a means to keep members from just giving rep out randomly to friends and so forth..... that way, i guess, you will be more selective on who you pass the good comments to.

the rep boxes had become a popularity thing, and i think this is their way of trying to avoid that happening agian.

i agree that it is nice to give the rep and not have to be limited, because there is usually enough good info or help to post good comments .
i am not certain what the limit is, though.

There was always a limit on the amount we could give within a certain span of
time.....even before the boxes were removed.
I don't feel we need to be *selective*......if a person posts a thread or makes a reply
that makes me want to give them Rep, then I do so. I tend to concentrate more
on the words being said, rather than the person saying them.

Another reason could be because some people give rep to EVERYONE, in hopes of getting rep in return.

I know that when people give me rep, I sometimes go back to the thread and see what that person posted. If their post was equally rep-worthy, I return the favor.

I've seen people banned for rep-spam just this past week. They went and repped everyone who posted on a thread, hoping for rep in return. The limits are likely multipurpose.. they prevent this kind of abuse, and also aim to prevent repping all your friends, or giving rep to people who don't deserve it. When you only have X number of reps available in a day, you're more likely to save them for posts that really deserve them.


Quite a few times, I've not been able to give rep to deserving posts because of the "spread it around" limit too... but I understand the need for it.

Yes, I've seen this....but mostly being done by our new members, who have yet to
understand the true value of giving Reputation.
I rarely max out my allotment of Rep for one day....unless there happens to be
an extremely awesome conversation going on.

I am sure that you just meannt to help out and make someone's day...I know how I felt when I first got a Reputation! Sometimes though, people just click random posts and give them reputation even if there is nothing spaecial about the post so that in return, they would get reputation. I usually give out reputation to posts that touch me but I have never gone past the limit. I think it is ridiculous how they stop you from brightening someones day by putting a limit of reputation. I understand though that they are probably just trying to stop people that just give reputation to get back reputation.

Default Re: Why a limit on kind words?

I think you have a good point. I've never given out that much rep in one day, so I can't judge how much it is, but I think that as long as you cannot give too much rep to a single person, it shouldn't matter how much you give in a day.

gingerly... i didn't realize that there had always been a limit on giving rep in a day. sorry for my mis-post.

when i said "selective" i guess what i meant to indicate was.... that knowing you have a limit of reps to give, you will give good rep,( if warranted in your mind,) and not just give random rep to give it. if you give random rep, you will run the limit real fast and then not be able to give good deserved rep when you want for the info or help you saw or received. it is kind of thinking about what you do as you do it.

and i always do give out rep for the content....not the person giving it.... as i figured that was what the system was for.
i hope i cleared up my apparently confusing first post.
