    or thanks, for that matter, the bloody thread should be removed or modified (and OP should get a slap on the wrist).

    It doesn't matter if the thread or post is awesome, rep whores doesn't deserve any attention according to me.

    Sorry for my harsh language but I'm getting pretty tired of the phenomenon.

    Agreed, and also people that are begging for rep in their signature.

    yeah i agree as well. It's almost like giving to a charity so you can tell everyone how charitable you are imo.

    The only number you should be trying to inflate is you're net worth

    When I see members whoring for rep or thanks
    they get a heavy slap from me and my slap carries a -8.
    I think you will find that most of the members who do carry a
    lot of Rep and have high Thanks have never asked for either
    once in a post.

    Thats a lot of rep power... would you +rep me, please?

    Kidding aside, good point OP... Asking for thanks and reps is just lame (I know I just did that).

    Basically what they are saying is, "Hey guys! See what I am sharing? I do not actually
    want to GIVE it away. Instead, I want to TRADE this idea or download in return for you
    giving me thanks or rep points."

    What they don't realize is that no one likes being "guilt tripped" into giving someone
    thanks or reps. Personally, I have never asked for thanks or reps. When I give something
    to the forum, that is good enough. If people thank me or rep me, that is a nice gesture,
    but I don't nag them into doing it. I have always thought that it was a tacky thing to
    ask for thanks and reps. People are more likely to give you thanks or reps when you
    DON'T ask for it. If you are going to share something on BHW, SHARE FREELY. That
    is in the TRUE SPIRIT of BHW. :)

    well i have different opinion members have a lot of rep usually from rep circle from friends and members working with them , and not all of members ask for rep/thanks should deal with them as bad members ! e.g G-S-T was asking for
    rep/thanks in his signature and definitely he is one of the best contributors on BHW so we should slap him !
    i have no problem if a member asked for rep/thanks if he did something useful for BHW community so if you want rep
    him/her and if you don't like that just skip this .

    I don't suggest so. Just leave this to the community as what they get in negative reps will overtake the positives so they learn the lesson the hard way.

    It's just an auto not-get to me. Ask, and ye shall NOT receive.

    Also do something about some PMS'ing Jr.VIPs/Donors who get their panties in a twist and -rep anyone who questions their lame ass posts.

    (-rep coming)

    if someone just started an "Official REP and THANKS BOOSTER+" thread, then things like this would be avoided!
    This is how it would work!

    1. We would have everyone post in 1 thread who wants rep and thanks boosts!
    2. Then we would have someone we would call the "dealer" who would supply the boosters...wait no..forget this step!!!
    3. Then each time you visit the thread you have to rep and thanks everyone who posted in the thread!
    4. This would ultimately discourage what OP is informing us about, and as a result all would gather in 1 thread and receive their REP and THANKS BOOSTS that we needed!
    5. I am not saying we should do this....but it would put an end to this problem OP mentioned!
    6. If you want to give "thanks and reps" for this idea & solution...please give it to the OP and if you have some left over I wouldn't mind some....wink wink :D

    If this is a big problem I would even suggest to changing this thread title to "Official REP and THANKS Boost+ Thread" and we could get this party started!

    I also agree, sharing for rep is not sharing at all, sharing means free help to the community.
