    seriously, compared to me, you're a freak. or, vice versa.

    There are days I don't rep at all. Or days where there are several insightful posts...in which case I'll rep more. So averaging it out...sure, a few a day.
    see, when i see a lot of insightful posts, i default to nodding in agreement where no one can see. repping in that situation gets lost as my focus becomes greater. to stop reading and rep while that focused (especially just to say "LOL") would feel like mental constipation.

    Right, right. Otherwise why are they called "reputation" points? It isn't "I read your post" points!

    Oh, and another thing.

    They aren't rep points because virtually no-one bothers with neg rep. All they are is points based on posting frequency. In practice the more posts, the more rep. Not, better posts, just frequency.

    I'm not saying a few people don't use it to record good posts, but from what I've seen I don't get rep points for good posts, I get them for just posting.

    Oh, and let's be honest, I would have wound a few people who use the rep system a lot up by querying the need for fluff, and yet no neg rep at all... so are we using this system properly?

    (sure, go ahead, you know you want to )

    I just see it as a way to send PM without leaving the thread...Just saying hey your post touched me and I felt like saying this.

    There's our winner.

    I think the ranges should be increased so that hitting the top level is nearly impossible.

    The highest repped person right now should have no more than two green bars.
