Thank you soooo much for posting this! I always feel squeemish(spelling?) when people say '__ til my next box' And I hope this clears it up. In my eyes, that makes more people feel the need to rep them, when they didn't even do anything helpful!

I only have one question. I have a "novel" guide, and rep is one of my sections. Should I delete that section? I'll go grab a link so you can read it. Click HERE for the guide in question--rep section is a little bit far down.

Oh, and I guess I have more than one question. Can we still congratulate members on their next box/message?

May I suggest blocking the word rep? You know when it gets turned into little stars? "*****" That would avoid many problems.

I had never seen rep as a 'thank you' button. I always thought it was 'this is helpful'

So I thought:

Person 1: *gives p2 rep*
Person 2: Thanks for "saying it was helpful!"
Person 3: Your welcome for saying it was helpful.


Ohkay. No arguement there. That just sounds wierd. Idk, I just thought differently about the button's meaning.

I wouldn't go that far--because then no one can say rep...so when a member says 'what are these green boxes?' You reply "***" (rep) But they don't know that.

They don't have to make a thread about it neccesarily. You could be DCTing with them, and they could have no idea what it is. IMO, as long as rep boxes are enabled, we should be able to say rep, to tell people what it is.

Thanks, I completely agree, FOM!
Just wondering though, how do we help people with rep if we can't post threads, even guides?

Thanks for posting this up here! In my opinion I think I would feel a lot more rewarded if I got a rep without posting a million things about how many I have, and by putting how many more I need until my next box in my signature. Thanks for clearing up the confusion , I know that we ALL needed this thread. (:

OH ! ALSO ! I have a question about reps. xD
Is there ever another color after green?

@starr: IKR! I feel that so many reps are only because people have been asking...or posting it in their signatures. I like getting it for good things I do. Not because I post for it. (not that they don't get it from good things too...but still)
