    i've seen lately some posts around here where ppl clearly beg for Thanks and reputation points or try to give something in exchange for Thanks/Reputation...:rolleyes:

    What do you think about that?

    Thanks and Rep are indicators of valuable contributors to BHW.

    Artificially inflating give status to fuckers that don't earn it, but get it by deceit.

    Therefore if you beg for Rep/Thanks - you should be banned.







    If you liek this post plzzzzz +Rep and Thanks!

    ***I'M JOKING YOU DOUCHE!!!*** :p :D

    Sometimes this is the case but a lot of times people are thanked by noobies when they upload some lame ebook they found on another forum's download section. It's simple to inflate those numbers without begging.

    If anyone is looking to see who is a valuable member here, just watch the posts for a week or so. You will quickly see who is worth listening to around here....regardless what their thanks and rep stats say. Just my opinion anyway.

    Agreed. Asking for it is just ridiculous. I'm more likely to neg rep if people make a post and end it with PLEASE THANK ME FOR THIS SHITTY REHASHED POST :D

    Yeah, read around, and if you find a good post by someone look up all their other posts and read them too. Sure fire way to find those who know what they're talking about

    They should be infracted the first time, the second time they should be banned. Then they must think about what they have done to the world, drink gasoline and swallow a lighted match so the world will have one less of them.

    I see it so much that I just kind of ignore it now. I think if you make a quality post you don't have to ask.

    It's just an a load of people wanting a big e-cock. It's totally and utterly meaningless and if people ask for it they won't get it, because i find it funny that want it.

    You only need look at when i registered and look at my e-cock to see how little i care. In fact in most cases, beyond that of the mods and vips, i see rep as little more than a sign of someone who does little work, spends most their time on the forum posting pointless rubbish hoping for thanks.

    Sorry if i offend any thanks and rep whores. And that includes you OP, because from what i've seen in this forum over the years, people who dislike people asking for rep, are those that truly want rep and thanks themselves.

    Please feel free to neg rep me, because i really care not.

    I can't neg rep you anyway, and i wouldn't do it ofcourse. lol

    You are wrong, i made this thread and poll because of one thread that really got on my nerves. The guy was offering a scrapebox blast in exchange for rep and thanks... that really pissed me off because it was more than just asking for it, was demanding it in exchange for a service, wich is kinda odd :D

    i think you are missing the point. If you read a good and valuable(even if not valuable for you cause you're lazy) thread/post you should show your apreciation of course.

    But what about a thread where someone says, "I'll do a scrapebox blast for you in exchange of an increase of my reputation"? it's not "I'll do a scrapebox blast for you" and people decide to +rep the man cause he was a nice guy...

    Offering a scrap box blast for rep/thanks is dodgy and boring.
    But..this thread topic is not dodgy..just boring.
