    as some may have noticed the lounge is becoming a rep collection spawn point
    what do u guys think, turn it off in the lounge, they did it with post counts
    why not with rep .. should slow things down.

    I am in the top 5 percentile of said "Rep Whores"

    The majority of my rep did not come from the Lounge.

    I suggest either reset everyones rep to zero....I was happier then anyway...or

    How about everybody grows up and stops bitchin about rep its just a ridiculous number on the interwebz.

    kind of a bipolar post bitching about a thread bitching about rep

    henceforth, rep will be capped at twice your total thanked amount.

    I agree with Proxygo actually. It might give people the push they need to post something useful.

    over 5 yrs if ive made maybe 20 posts in the lounge
    my comment merely refers to the fact that post counts
    are disabled in the lounge why not rep as well
    seems a logical thing, theres still the thanks button

    I dont think it matters but the lounge is just somewhere to talk about random shit. If it doesnt count towards posts i dont think rep should be either.

    Although dont see why a thread was created on this, since its only rep. Like who actually cares. Only ppl who care are the rep whores (successful and unsuccessful at it) lol

    That's the thing. It would be nice if you could instantly look at a persons rep and know how much they have actually contributed to the forum...

    I have to agree here. There are quite a few members with insane rep and when you look at their shares, its all just bullshit posts in the lounge.

    Usually you would expect members with high rep to have shared a lot of good methods in other sections, but im seeing a ton of people with 3000+ rep and zero credible shares on the forum.

    The other day I was having a doo at someone who made a thread about being neg reped, at some point in the thread I was enlightened upon the fact that had a more respectable member of BHW made the same thread that I would have had a different attitude / response towards the OP, so I can only take it within my duty towards the noobs to call you a c*&t.
