    I frequently rep folks, and they rep me back because I repped them. I appreciate it, but I don't see where reps are earned because you rep someone else. I think reps should be earned from providing pertinent information, not from repping someone else. That being said, should I rep folks who rep me, just because? Just wondering what's proper for this situation?

    I'm technically challenged and still don't know what reps are?

    I will rep a new member as a way of saying welcome. I dont expect a rep back just because. Other reps are for things that interest me or good deeds. etc.

    I sometimes rep folks that rep me frequently just because,But I mainly give em as a compliment for a post ,or great info to help someone out. I like to rep new members as well to welcome them .

    I dont rep cause someone signs up. It really depends that is why its up to each member. I will be respectful to new members. Heck I consider someone new who may have been here a while and I aint notice them. 22K folks and my brain. Its hard to keep up. You will not get a rep from me just for signing up. Sorry. back in the day, reps was one at a time not 3K at a time. Now if you post something that I read that blows me away on your first post, I'll hit ya with a rep. I just dont do it cause you hit
    enter one time unless I knew ya before you came here.

    I also dont rep just to get them back. I rep out of liking your being here, your inf post, maybe out of respect, I got different reason'n If I rep you, dont worry bout having to give them back to me. I dont do it to get some back. It aint no hard feeling on me if you never rp me and I have you. I sleep and wake up next day. Give it cause you agree, enjoy , your glad I'm here.or whatever, I dont need it cause you think I gave it to you so I could get some back. You can even hit me with a red one and I wont tell who did it. I might joke, but not tell.
    I aint a rep seeker but it is nice to know someone out there is glad I'm posting.
    Otherwise, I would leave.

    It sometimes takes me a lot of time to post etc. Plus BOC and or my ISP has problems now and then. or new changes, i most times dont bother with them. Sometimes it dont work for me and I move on.
    I forget to rep and thank folks and I have a slow ISP. i've only ran out of dust very few times and I read that folks run out daily. I forget but its no offense to anyone who reps me.
    Today I rep several folks, by the time it came up and I click, I was ready to shot gun my PC cause I was sitting at ideal waiting . I got ADHD. LOL
    I do admit, I spread more to the folks I mess with daily than those I dont read post cause I just aint in that part of BOC reading . Heck, do it they way you want and dont worry bout it.
    And I got a couple good friends who I think barely got reps from me. I forget at times.

    i like the idea of rep points most poeple say it means nothing but when i first started it did make me feel welcome and it does take time to give someone points. and if most poeple think they dont mean anything i would like to think someone with alot of points has some useful things to say or listen to for someone else to take the time to give them.

    LOL I actually just got my only negative rep! It was posted from this thread, but was obviously in response to my leaving the High Intensity section today. I got what I took to be an ugly explanation of the negative rep from a fellow forumee. I won't call any names, and I'm not sure that he does not have me confused with someone else. His note to me was:
    <
    you ok, bill? does my neg rep help you in your indeavor? drop the drugs/alcohol.....if you don't want to be here, then don't be here>First off, I'm trying to figure out what endeavor I posted that I was on. Secondly, I don't drink nor use any hard drugs, EVER. I tell you, people are sure hard to figure. I wrote and told him to negative rep me everyday if he wished. I ain't about reps anyhow. Let's go fishin'! :smile2:
