Rep Mongering



It has been brought to our notice that a lot of members are directly soliciting other members by asking for reps via their status messages and signatures, not to mention posts.

This is not allowed as per the Forum rules. The rep system is a reflection of a member's contribution towards the forum. Asking for reps defeats this purpose and therefore not permitted. Punitive measures will be taken against members indulging in such activities.

Reps should be given if you found the post/initiative/article to be highly helpful and valuable. For everything else, there is the like system in place.

Please do not make a habit out of giving reps to your friends/circle. Rep only those people whose contributions you find genuinely valuable.

Not really. But then @Xanan. Whats the threshold for tolerance??
I did notice some people saying "Rep me" in the signature. Not that it will prompt people into repping. But then it does look sleazy.

Are we ok with a signature saying in general "Rep a helpful post, like a good post" ??

Re: Rep Mongering


The easiest way to prevent this sort of mongering would be to invite Mamata Banerjee to become a moderator on this forum. She'll make it illegal!

That really sucks.
But I am sure you know that there are people here who have better post to rep ratio than I do even without a diamond.
I haven't seen any of them asking for it ever either.

Re: Rep Mongering


How did KnB get so many reps? :O
At any rate, I've stopped bothering about the rep system. It seems satisfactory that I help people without expecting anything in return.

Re: Rep Mongering


nope. it doesnt matter in the end.

nor do i ask for it. my only point is, tackle the problem, rather than killing the system itself.

That's something that is in the control of other members. It's sort of like the old adage "karm kar, phal ki chinta mat kar" or rather, do your duty, and do not worry about the rewards.

Thre's no threshold as such. Asking for repping oneself, is not allowed. Asking other members to rep a helpful post is actually encoraged. There's no point in having a system in place if no one uses it.

This is the attitude to take! You deserve reps for this.
