View Full Version : Spreading around rep points

I've noticed you can't give the same person two rep points in a row, and trying earns you a message saying you have to "spread them around" or something like that.

Let's say you give person A a rep point. Anyone know how many rep points must go to others before you can give rep points to person A again?

What can I say? Every once in a while I'll pose a few questions and the same person will dash around solving all my problems for me.

Hi Rose,

I *think* that you have to award 10 rep points to 10 different people (one each) before you can give another one to the same person. Someone will correct this if I'm wrong, and I certainly have a tendancy toward wrongness. ;)

Thanks, Anne! Did Rio give you the answer?

Anne's right, you have to give them to ten other people before you can go back to person A.

Okay, I'm nervous about asking the following: How do I find out how many rep points I've accumulated? And, Do I want to know???!!

Thanks :gone:

Hit 'User CP' on the toolbar up top and it's over on the lower right hand side.

Click the scales of injustice that you see over there to the left.

Jenna recently changed the limit from 10 to seven rep points given to others, before you can grant another to the same person.

Stormie, if you click on "User CP" at the top of your screen, a window will open showing information about you. Included, to the right, will be info on your reputation points.

Haha, oh, I see what you mean. :Smack:

If you go to your User CP though, you can see where and from whom you picked up your points.

Oh yeah, I'm here to beg for reputation points. :crazy:
I'd rather eat lint. :box:

Ha! I knew I was wrong. That's the last time I listen to a bird....thanks a lot, Rio.

Wow, that was quick! Thanks, all, for explaining how to find my ranking or reputation. I now feel like I'm back in high school.... Do they like me? Don't they? AGGGHHH! (And thanks, Midievalist...and Temlyn!)

Haha, oh, I see what you mean.

I don't. I only know how to get there from User CP. What's this other way to which you allude?

If you click on your own scales, as if you were giving yourself rep points, a box pops up and tells you your total and your standing for that particular post. But it doesn't give you all the other info you'd get from your CP.

Lint can be found in some very pleasant and feminine places. :thankyou:

I have nothing to say about lint...but I do have a question about rep points. When I try to give someone a rep point I keep getting the message saying I'm not logged in. I want to share the love, but I'm being thwarted by something...or somethings...

How many points do we start with?

And, if we click the diapprove of mssg when we hit someone's scales does it take away from their points? And if so, can we be passive agressive about it or will the machine tell them we're the one who disapproved?

Everyone starts with 10 points. Yes, clicking the disapprove button will take away points. A person you give or subtract points from will know who did it.

Sky, you may need to ask Jenna to let you sign up again. I know she had to do something to my subscription to make my rep point abilities work right, but I can't remember what. I'm a supermod, though, so that may have made a difference.

Does anyone know how to "see" older rep points in their control panel?

I've gotten enough for a double bubble, but I can only see like the last fifty rep points and comments. I want to make sure I've repped everyone who's repped me but I can't see the early names.

Help?

Wow. In browsing the discussions, I decided to check this one out--and in doing so learned a lot.

I didn't know about all this, and when I checked on my points, I was pleased and flattered to see points given to me by several names I recognize. Thank you to each of those people.

I don't know how to see the early points that fell off the bottom.

Are others giving points to everybody who gave them points, as a general rule? I haven't been doing it as a way of saying thanks. Sometimes I rep a person who repped me once (or more), but not for that reason.

Be sure to rep them back! :poke:

Reph, I don't necessarily rep someone because they rep'd me first.

I rep because I liked (or disliked) the post first.

Second, if someone rep'd me, I do a search for their posts. They might have posted something good in a thread I missed. In that case, I rep them back if I find a post I like.

Third, if I can't find a post I like of someone who rep'd me I send them a PM thanks.

Oops, I just revealed my secret. Now everyone is going to be checking their PM boxes!

Uh..uh..I PM everyone who reps me anyway. Yeah, thats the ticket! ;)

Can someone tell me how many rep points one needs to get two green boxes? I think I'm close, but no cigar.

Warm regards, Susie:)
