    Default "Reputation" feature

    OK, I may be "on my own" with this one, but I for one think this is the zenith of "Random Board Coolness". I try to give it out, where appropriate, as much as possible. It's a great form of communication and it also recognizes "cool" and "interesting" posters.

    I think, JMHO, we should ALL give it a chance and look for opportunities to support and encourage other board members. It's a great feature and easily accessible as the "Star" at the bottom left of each post. Spread the Joy!!!!

    Anyone Agree????

    +1 to the above. I think it's a very cool feature.
    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    I went from having no clue what it was and therefore avoiding it, to getting really into it. To that end, for those who have no clue what it is, its like a way to give props. If someone makes a post that you like for whatever reason, you click on the star in the bottom far left of their profile and can then make a comment on what you're giving them props for - and they get a notification that they got a reputation comment (which they can then read) and the green pips under your username go up accordingly.

    Yes, good point! You can't give it to someone twice in a row. And you can't see who gave you reps either, unless they put their name in the comment.

    Thanks for clearing this up. I was always scratching my head when I saw a 'reputation' comment. And I thought it was the dandruff!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    every time I want to give someone another rep, it says I must spread some rep around before I can give it to this member

    I mean, EVERY time.

    I think you have to "spread it around to like 10-15 folks before you can back to a person. You are also limited to like 10 Rep comments in a 24hr period, I believe. Its that way so that you can't "load up" on any one person in particular. I like the ability to make annonymous comments while not having to actually post. Kinda neat IMHO

    Yeah, but 10-15 is just a bit excessive. Then again, maybe I'm just a cynical bastard overthinking this, but I only like to give out reputation when it's earned: when a profound statement is made, when someone's made a comment so witty I almost choke on my crumpet, or when someone says "Doctor Who/Life on Mars is the greatest show ever". Thing is, I usually just hand these out to a few. With a third of those to bears. Or would be, if there were less reputation needed to be spread around. Is it my fault he continuously posts such anecdotes of wisdom and shit?
