Rep points...

Ok, so I am not entirely sold on the rep point system... At first I was really excited about them, but then the rep point whoring began... I was getting/giving rep points for really no reason other than one party asked... Anyway, that's not the point of this post...

I gave away some rep points a couple days ago because some people have been repping me lately for things I feel as though are good contributions (though it may not be two calender days)... Since I have been rep slacking, I figure it only right to rememdy this by spreading some reps to people who I should have repped long ago... ANYWHO...

So it's been two days since I last repped and it still says I need to spread around the love before repping again... My question is, how long do I have to wait and/or is there something afoul? I think I remember seeing somewhere that it's 24 hours, but I am sure it's been longer than that...

The system is as such: You can't give rep pts to the same person back to back. You have to spread them around to a few different people before the system will allow you give them to that person again.

So if you can't give them out to that person you must keep spreading the wealth.

No...not for repping the same person...it will never expire after so many hours...it's totally dependent on how many people you have to rep before it will allow a 2nd repping.

Ah, I got a message this morning saying I'd given out too many rep points in the last 24 hours, and to wait a while and try again later.

Are you getting a message that says you gave out too many in the last 24 hours? Or something else?

Actually it was when I was trying to rep you... and IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN... It says I need to spread around the rep points before repping you again... Did I rep you recently?

it's tough because I rep people for a few main reasons..

1. they have helped me or someone else out by posting an answer to a question that someone asked.

2. they post a tutorial or how to or review that was not asked for but helps make this forum a better place to surf...

3. they post something soooo funny that i find myself laughing out loud....


I find that a lot of the time i end up repping the same 5 - 7 people and sometimes i cannot rep them again due to the multirep restriction on the same person.. so I do find myself repping some other people for lesser reasons just to be able to rep someone worthy again..........


just to let everyone know I am willing to step up and be the one that you all rep to be able to rep someone else you want to rep but can't until you spread around some more rep....



what are you guys and gals rep criteria???

so you must be pretty stingy with the reps huh


I'm pretty much the same as you Tater... I rep for help, for a funny ass joke or pic, and if there's a discussion... for a well defended point. though it seems like it's the same people I'm rep'n... so sometimes it won't let me...

That's pretty much me too... However, the unsolicited tutorials don't carry as much weight for me though... I like the exchange of information, rather than information dumping... Now if the tutorial is specific to a recent mod or repair, then I'll consider that rep worthy... If it's just a regurgitation of something you could easily find by doing a Google search... I will read and probably enjoy it, but won't give rep points...

Though I admit I have been slacking lately with the rep points...
