    Negative rep should really be used for personal attacks on people, genuinely offensive statements, obvious shilling for a company (although such users are normally banned pretty sharpish anyway).


    *possible exception: what's grey and can't swim?

    ...

    A filing cabinet.

    This may be offensive to filing cabinet enthusiasts and/or non-swimmers though, so YMMV.
    That's exactly what a mouse should be used for in situations like that

    I don't like the rep system because it does not represent a persons ability to answer the question asked on the thread.
    I think it would be better if only the thread starter could thank the posts in their thread then the rep recieved would be due to the information in the post being usefull rather than plain brown nosing like a certain two individuals that work in a school in the north east, they always thank each others posts despite sharing a office.

    I really like the way CertForum.co.uk have a monthly award for a few different categories of most helpful / best member / etc ... and I used to like the way SpyMac also used to have ranks based around expertise / knowledge.

    The problem with these sorts of things though, is that you have to have folk nominate and vote for each other ... and often it just becomes a popularity contest rather than a meritocracy. You have to be careful about that ... but I am sure we are all mature enough not to abuse a system like that ... it is not as if we have rep miners here.

    On the topic of anonymous rep...

    How do you put why you're giving it?

    I click the star and get a message saying I "need to pass around more rep before I can rep [person] again."

    No box to fill in why I'm giving it.

    not related nor that it helps with making suggestion on how to improve the repping system but I prefer to subscribe to threads and end up learning more from other peeps threads etc, only used positive rep / thanks and aint fussed if i get neg repped etc.

    Just ignore it now tbh

    You get that error if you try to give rep to the same person again. Once you have rep'ed others (15 others) you can re-rep the person.

    But it was the first time I rep'd them... I think...

    Can't there be a time-out on it? I rarely rep, so I could end up rep'ing the same person twice but months apart.

    There is no option as such to do that sadly but I will see what overrides I may be able to code.

    But to a Tory ... is that really an insult? That is like some people calling me a geek. I am a geek ...

    With the present rep-fest (partly due to this thread) rep is a commodity!
