    I've only been given rep 4 times but it seems to think that equates to 12,647 points :eeek: I mean I'm not complaining but just thought I'd mention it inc ase the rep system needs fixing, feels fraudulent to let people think my reputation is that great :p

    Funny though most people who start these threads suddenly get massive increases of rep, some start them for that reason.

    Rep doesn't mean a thing. It has no bearing whatsoever on your awesomeness or trustworthiness - that much was made clear when the mods stripped it of any meaning in marketplace transactions. It's just a bit of fun and a way of saying thank you to someone.

    Are you insinuating that the OP is doing this? It appears as though you are.

    We did what now? It wasn't possible to limit rep-delivery to the marketplace only, so it was never realistically about that.

    Agreed, just like post count etc. :)

    No just saying that most of these threads turn in to rep feast.

    The rep system became silly when it became possible to give somebody all their green squares just by repping them once (that's what happens when I give rep to newbies). Everybody should have the same rep power regardless of their own rep, status, tenure etc. I'm sure the admins could do this - just wipe it clean and start from scratch.

    But as Krikkit and Spreadie say, it's really not important enough to warrant the effort.

    PS I think op now has significantly more than 12K points, LOL. :D

    That came about because of systematic abuse - circles of friends endlessly repping each other until the numbers went mad. A reset might be possible, but I'd rather just turn it off.

    Red is best. I don't care what my score is, as long as my Nokia-era snake is red.

    I care deeply about rep. It's my raison d'être. But it's still pointless ;)

    I don't take any notice of rep or post count if a programmer joins today do I have more knowledge or experience than them...no.

    It's not a reflection of any kind of status.
