View Full Version : Reputationalism & The Truth
December 18th, 2004, 08:07 PM
So This Thread is where you can discuss how much your rep power is -- Make a good guess if you dont know.You can Also tell
what you feel about this System.This is also mainly for you to accept whether you have abused this system.
(ie) Tell us Whether you gave and recieved pointless reps saying -"D000dz gIve mE repZ".Be Honest cause no one is gonna ban you if you say yes.And Remember that someone above is always watching us/
Well I Think My Rep Power is Around 22.I'm not sure And Yes I have misused this system..When I was a newbie I say even popular members and mods having "Give & Take Rep" in their sigs I too had it in my sig.I gave Reps to some fellows and asked them to give back....But most of them were newbies...Anyway I did get some points like that but not too much,cause I stopped in the middle.I have matued after that, And I think this Concept of Reputation is Awesome.Credit to VB ofcourse though people take this tooo seriously!XD!

On my profile says i have 157 total points , i wished i could post here more often so people would get to know me.but whatever.

I'm pretty sure there is a thread like this in announcements where you can post your opinions of the system, no?
December 18th, 2004, 08:38 PM
I think that the point of the thread is more on the voting side , like a poll , ie how many rep points have you archieved than discussing the whole rep system. But well can be just me through.

I mostly give rep to people I'm friends with, but if people I never really talked to seem nice and post good things, then I'll give them rep. I never give rep just to get some back. lol If they give me rep, I'll give some back if I don't forget and I can find a good post of his or hers. ;) I have no clue what my rep power is. On my old account I think it was nearing 100. On this account, I'm sure it's pretty low.

I have 18 points I never asked to increase my rep well i asked once for people opinion on my post. I did not how my post was so i showed it on my sign.But it is people choice to increase rep or not so i don't like to ask it would be like forcing them so i dont like to do that.

BTW, you can check your rep points in your User CP, for the people who don't know ^^
My rep has 662 points, although I don't have it on currently. I have receved my share of "Give me rep" points, plus the fact about 400 of my points are just friends giving friends rep (from a while ago).
BTW, does rep power mean the amount of points you have? 0.0

Rep power is how many points you increase another person's rep by when you give them rep.

Well, I don't know my rep power. But, I am guessing around 30 or so. I don't abuse the system. Honest! XD And really, the reps I've gotten aren't insane either. None like "OMG!!!111oneoneone, give me repzz!!" or anything like that. People award me for being sensible and nice. So, I do the same for others. ^________~

I have no clue about my rep power O.o i guess 89 Cuz i gave P_V rep and it increased by that much
December 19th, 2004, 08:41 AM
Mine probably around...20,30.With 5 rep blocks and 480 points it must be pretty high.
December 19th, 2004, 08:47 AM
I think you give 1/30th of your rep power. So, it'll take a while before you can give anything like 30 or so, that is usually only when you have in the upper 1000s.
December 19th, 2004, 08:49 AM
Ok then Blue.So probably 5 or 6.

100 You are kiddin Right~~Cause in a VB Forum You cant have more than 50--That's how much Admins Have

Well, the way this thread is turning out... it's more like a discussion... mayhaps a moderator should move this...
Actually, slysunshine's not kidding. PikaPal gave me a good rep today and it gave me 80 points - I counted. ^^ A new rep block for DP!
Also, CC, I have recieved absolutely pointless reputation as well... some with no comment, some with stuff like "stay on topic please" [not naming the unknown name - you know who you are, I am content with that] when actually I was quite on topic. -_- I've gotten used to it. *sigh*
*giggles nervously* I don't [I]think I gave any pointless rep... ^_^ XD... my power would be about the same as yours, CC, I have 579 points last time I checked - this morning lolz -... I originally had 499 [PikaPal. Thanks!]

I can tell you guys this much -my rep is 3531 and my rep power is 126 -now you can all work our your rep power from that XD
The limit isnt 50 for regular members, CC ^^; it's the same as with staff and up -basically limitless. Everyone's equal with rep (from regular members to admins).
December 20th, 2004, 08:44 AM
I have 58 rep...so im guessing my rep power is 2?
December 20th, 2004, 08:49 AM
i have 1126 rep points, but i have no idea what my rep power is XD i like the rep system, cause it gives me green blocks :D XD
December 20th, 2004, 08:52 AM

Well, I have 856, so from that calculation of RP = R/30, mine should be around the 29/30 mark. That is if the formula is correct of course. And for abusing the sytem.... NEVER! HA! I spit on pitiful n00bies who do that. J/k XD

I have 23 reputation points. Only like two people have given rep points to me. Yes, I have given rep points to random people, but that was just because I was in a nice mood AND those people replied to my thread. I wouldn't say I abuse the system, but I do sometimes give some points to my friends "just because".
