    just wondering......... has it been a waste of time as I thought initially or do you think its helpful to "reward" or "punish" someone on the forum when they do something good or bad?

    I must admit that I do like receiving nice comments (even if I do have to create another account and send them to myself) when i've helped a fellow member out but I think it's a woefully under-used system.

    I have not used reputation yet. But was tempted a few times (especially when I see djh's posts).

    I use it as often as possible.

    sadly i havent been able to use it for awhile since it keeps saying i have to spread the reputation around more. very odd..

    anyway I think its great. I mean its not the most useful tool in the world but its really nice to give someone some help and later get a little note saying "Hey thank you for that!"

    I never used the Rep system, but have you ever considered vBookie as a fun addition?

    I have used it, and will use it again, though I reserve it for something exceptional, not just a run of the mill post.

    I think that a lot of people use it the same way, because the rep doesn't seem to fly around this site as much as I have seen on others. Zardon seems to suck all the rep up, though that might be a bit of sucking up to the boss :p

    I use it when I remember it. I think all the times so far were for positive recs.

    I also enjoy the negative recs I get. It looks like 1 or 2 people only have negative recced me a few times. Also love the comments for them that I get.


    The first three are gems.

    I use it, but I wonder how long it really takes to get more than 1 little block..

    Not too much actually but if people are not really using the feature, it's gonna take forever!

    I've been thinking that maybe the number of reps you have to give to different people before giving to the same person again might have to go down a bit, or for the rep points between ranks to be lower. But then people might start abusing it although this is a fun feature.

    I was thinking the same thing, cuz for the longest time I was sitting at 3, and today I'm at 4. If I were to divvy it up it's 1 bar (or check mark) for every 5 positive rep points.

    Do I use it? No. I should, but to be honest, it's one of those permanent memory lapse things. I just don't remember to do it. Like, brushing my teeth...

    I use it for quality posts, when I remember.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the pace of blocks/checks, there isn't any rush, is there?

    I used it in the beginning then once the novelty wore off I mostly forgot about it unless someone +reps me then I do the same for them. I rarely ever negative rep someone because the A-holes only come out of their shells in the flame warzone and that section is "off the record" so it's not cool to -rep people there.

    I care so little about it that I can't even come up with an idea on what to do with it. However, the user field may be too cluttered for the rep bar to be noticed much.
