    This thread was started basically because some of the people who giveaway stuff on BHW ask for, or expect thanks/rep in return. The reason people should give stuff away is because they want to give back to the BHW community, IMO. It shouldn't be about anything else, plain and simple. No one cares about what you think or whatever. You are offering something for free, that's YOUR choice, and no one else.

    Sure, the people taking it should show some love back, but they should not be asked to do it or reminded of it. If that's the case, then you clearly are not doing it with no strings attached. So, the next time someone from BHW wants to share something with the community, why not do it with no expectation of receiving anything in return, sound good?

    And if you are the type of person that need some recognition back, go get a dog. I hear they pretty much do what you want if you give them a bone. :p

    I don't really give anything in the lounge too much weight... Any good forum will have a place where we can say anything, right?

    People should give away things to get thanks and reputation, that's why it's there. It would be wonderful if it was truly selfless, but it never is. Even a someone giving to a charity has his incentives, in the forms of even a tax write off, or good public relations...

    It would be awesome if we lived in a world where incentives didn't drive commerce, but the reality is people don't do shit for free.

    If someones going to give you something, and all you have to do is a click a button to show appreciation, shame on your for thinking that's wrong.

    i wondered why your on my ignore list - now i remember dumb reply's

    learn to read, not everyone doing something care about rep
    only the people they help along the way,

    as long as there happy is all that matters.. read through my posts beagle
    reps mean nothing to me, never did and ive said that for 4 yrs..
    helping some1 who is grateful for it is what matters they appreciate it
    a simple THANKYOU means alot more than some stupid rep button

    If you are the type of person that I mentioned in my initial post, then this thread is directed at you. If not, then yes, it would be pointless to you.

    I am not trying to change the world here, my man. Just throwing something out there to the BHW community that thank/rep begging is bad or worse than people not giving you thanks/rep for sharing something. Simple as that.

    Wow, you are as sour as what other people have posted on BHW. Like I said to another person who posted earlier, if you are one of the people I directed this thread to, then hopefully you can take value in it. If not, then it's a thread that might not be for you. Sorry for wasting a minute of your day.

    My bad.

    I NEVER beg or expect thanks/rep. if I give something away, which I have done before. Does that answer your question?

    ITT: OP has a guilty conscience for not giving back when he's received help, and so, he projects this on people who make giveaway threads that ask for thanks/rep in return by subconsciously accusing them of subliminally reminding OP that he hasn't given back. OP is really upset with OP's self. whoa.

    If you take the time to build/share something useful to people, is getting thanks and repped an unreasonable expectation?

    Who cares what the motivation behind the share is...someone shares something good, thanks/rep them, it's free to say thank you.

    I agree with you 100%, but in "real life", if you give someone something, do you say to that person, "Hey, where is my thanks?". I don't, do you?

    Does the giver expect something back, at least a thanks, sure, but do they come out and ask for it? I will let you answer that.

    What's wrong for giving thanks for freebies? Have people lost their manners?

    Well in Russia when person says "thanks" we tell them that "you can't put thanks on a bread and eat it" so in real life people expect not only thanks but a bottle of vodka with it.
