    Lately, I've seen in signatures, "If I've helped, rep me!" and stuff along those lines.

    But as far as the rep system goes... You're the only one who can see your rep, I believe.

    I dunno. Is it just the presonal satisfaction of having someone say, "Thanks," or "You're super-cool!"?


    I dunno. Might be more to the system. Maybe if other people could see your rep, it'd be somewhat effective.


    Just a small observation.

    You CAN See Your Rep... Like... Look At The Two Green Squares Under My Name... That Means I Have A Reasonably Large Amount Of Reputation... Now Look At The Member Brawny (somewhere on here)... He Has THREE Green Squares.... He Has A HUGE Amount Of Rep...

    So Basically... Every Interval Or So (25 Rep Points I Think?) You Get Another Green Square...

    Hope That Helps!

    There's nothing greater than having a few green boxes under your username. Winning the lottery doesn't even come close. I only have one, I'm gonna cry now... :sad:

    Don't feel bad I only have one box too. I'm not worried about it our reputation will come sooner or later when we make kool threads that people read and r as informative and serves a purpose.

    Hmmm the power of sarcasm I don't think anybody in their right mind would fear that.

    I never get rep, I'm so lame to all of you, aren't I... We should do what FacePunchStudios does like with the artistic rep and gold stars and zing... but I suppose there is all of that copyright and ****..

    As far as I know, its a way to make members who help out a lot to stand out. The more green boxes there are leads to the impression that they have been very helpful.

    Oh. Wahaha. I thought the green boxes corresponded to the number of posts you have.

    Aren't I a smartie?

    The two *generally* go hand in hand, so I can understand your confusion.

    Okay everyone, pathosssss...

    I don't care about rep, at all. I think it's stupid. You should be able to view why someone has so many reps... Or I'm being very cynical and it's really all out of good will... Nah.

  19. trulen- deff one of the "smarter" mods on the board :wink: hehe just playin

    brawny is a hater however im on to him :shifty: lol

    seriously though, the rep system is cool when used correctly thats all. its stupid and pointless when abused but lucky for us and the fact that i0n had to treat us like babies due to some members, the bad aspect was taken away so now its only left for "good"

    que sera sera

    ETA- its like pokemon, you have no idea what it is but somehow you just gotta have em all! lol!
