By the way, I also have another thing to mention on the topic of rep. How about changing it for a "thanks" button? I've seen those in other forums and they seem more valuable than rep. It seems to foster a better feeling than rep; there's no competition and no actual way of doing negative thanks; and it's probably more reliable in terms of feedback, as rep can be hijacked with beastly threads (who would do such a thing???
) and often has more to do with popularity I think.
Thoughts? Mods, can something be done about one or both of these things?
Sometimes the site will not allow me to give rep, either. It's like everything kind of freezes for a moment or something. It would also be nice if there were no limits to the amount of times you can "rep" or "thank" a person. I feel like there are times when users will get on a "roll" (for lack of a better word) and make really great posts one after another. If we were allowed to rep them for each of these posts instead of having to make sure we spread the reputation around, it could really help build a person's confidence. I know most people don't put a lot of importance into the whole rep thing, but there are some that really get excited to see that others enjoy their posts. It's very encouraging for some.
