    Really, I have started a few threads but I contribute constructive and expansive thoughts quite often and provide experience with some programs and lend .02. Check my past posts, I think I post more than just "thanks" actively. Put a + rep if this is so, I'm protesting the change here.

    If everyone for whom someone else has left rep would return the favour, there would be fewer problems in this regard.

    This is not too subtle fucking HINT!

    It's just that the system isn't scaled. A newbie can make a first post with a link and theoretically get access before the top posters on the board. It should def be 2 tiered where once you have it you have it. If somebody drops off and becomes a lurker it's the same as somebody just starting to lurk...

    Not this way guys. Rep exchange is far worse than non equal rep. Any contributions should be appreciated and repped by the community without any incentives that you will get something back from it. If you rep back all the people who repped you, then guess what's gonna happen? People who do not contribute will gain high rep, while people who usually contribute, will stop contributing anymore because their work is not appreciated, and the rep does not have the same value.
    Reputation is a system to keep order in this forum, and in any other forum. Don't mess it up, please.

    Personally I like the "Did you like this post Y/N" I am just now starting to remember to rep people, I never gave it much thought until I saw mine starting to rise an even then I dont think I issue enough of them compared to how much good info I have gotten here. Rep for the sake of rep is stupid, but if there is something behind a locked door, it definitely makes me want to go get it.

    name a better alternative that doesnt involve giving everyone the world and begging for it? wait, this is begging for it too? oh right, noone gives it out normally unless you beg for it.

    if we had known that rep would have mattered im sure we wouldv been using it properly before this, at this point however there was no notice so everyone who was almost at the point of getting to be able to get to the next 'step' in their access levels got screwed. its not my forum blahblah but this is just a pita

    Just don't worry about rep; do your thing and go on.

    Rep will find you.
