    wouldn't it be great if they were always the same?

    It is sad to see it's about numbers for people. Members can write any number of posts all day, every day which are totally meaningless. If they have a few followers and the need for attention via endless posts because they don't otherwise fill their time with anything substantial, anyone in this position can receive aforementioned 'points'. For me, it is about content. If someone can take something away from what I've said that's valuable and meaningful to their life, then that's the most important thing.

    again, just curious, but for whom is it about numbers?

    How about a calculation of the number of posts divided by the rep points, or vise versa? This will give a number to how meaningful a person's posts are to others. For instance, if someone has only a few posts but with high rep point, his posts will have more value than someone who has low rep points but a high post count. This could help people take note of people they might want to follow.

    Thank you.
    I used meaningful twice, will I get twice as many reps now!

    Now this is a good question.

    PS to all: The "reputation" shown is rep power. That is; that person's ability to give rep to others.
    so if someone has a high rep power, their reps give more rep points than the rep of someone with less rep power.

    I'm sure we all think our posts are wonderful and we deserve to have thousands of rep points. I lost interest in rep points a long time ago. I just like to express an opinion on topics that arise and try to solve people's problems for them.

    Something else that occurs to me is that if you want to have a high rep points to posts ration, you need to stay off the New Members Forum, because you'll never get rep points over there.

    Or...you welcome people because you want to, not because there's a reward.

    The best way to help others understand and experience God's love better is to understand and experience it better yourself.

    Understanding and experiencing God's love better everyday is the most important task for anyone who considers him/herself to be a Christian.


    Love without truth is deception. Truth without love is arrogance. God's love and God's truth balanced is God's wisdom.

    The more one promotes himself and/or his ideas, the less he cares about eternal life for others.
