Roughly the point you posted up the image of your adorable Child? Seems about right, no?
Welcome to the Bit Tech presidential candidates club shirty.
Believe it or not that post got no rep at all
Although I did get one rep bomb for the photo of her I put in the photos thread.
I feel warm and fuzzy.
Oh, it seems I've spilled coffee on myself.
It was a nice feeling while it lasted.
That deserves 566 points of rep...
Wow, so it does
Thanks for the invite too btw.
You've still got a way to go before you catch up with the elite three but have a real rep bomb from the Devil
Haha thanks Teel. What's the next milestone for me? 25k?
I really don't get peoples obsession with rep......
Some complete douchebags have loads of rep - yet, i've never seen them post a helpful or constructive thing anywhere. Other people, i see post in software/hardware/tech all the time, always helpful, always constructive, yet have hardly any rep.
I guess its all the rep orgy's that go down in general where you all rep spam each other to oblivion
I think it's a bit like overclocking, you're compelled to go as far as you can despite the fact that it's utterly pointless beyond a certain level.
Margo I hope you're not insinuating I'm a douchebag I try to post across the boards, and sometimes I'm even helpful...
I dare say that if everyone repped me for my input in the Hardware threads; I'd have more rep than even Bindi.
But 'eh. It's more just bragging rights than anything else, plus that faint feeling of smugness as I watch it change.
Probably it doesn't go up that often, no? I wouldn't be able to fit my ego out of the door otherwise...
To be honest I very rarely take much notice of rep because it's not integral to the way I use the forum, but it's always nice to see I've helped someone or made them chuckle. It would be a far more balanced system if everyone had the same repping power (i.e. +1) but it's far too late to change it now.
haha **** no way I didnt even mean for it to come accross like that!
Ultimately, I got all my rep mostly through one funny post, so who's the douchebag now. I'm like Mac Lethal - rep to anyone who gets that!
I think you've confused rep and rap
Input doesnt mean its constructive/helpful/useful - a deduction many have not been able to make.
Remember the good old days Tel?:
How times have changed
I think that was me. I repped you for posting the eventual name of my unborn child lol It changed after i repped you.
Bindi has less rep than Shirty He just has a huge post count.
Ahh yes the good old days mate I was only 109 then
Bindi, Joe et al all have huge post counts, but remember a large proportion of those would have been news articles/features etc. The true spam champions are Nexxo and Krikkit (and Kid ).
I'll be retracting that rep now...
