    Indeed. Every topic has been covered multiple times
    over, but that is the nature of discussion boards.

    Monica, reputation power accumulates over time depending on how much you post (one when you reach fifty posts, and one per every thousandth post you make); how long you are here (one given every anniversary of your joining); and one added every time your reputation points total hits a new hundred mark, which you can see on the Settings page. When you give a rep to someone, their reputation points total increases by your reputation power, and vice versa. You can give a rep with no comment, and anonymously, or leave your name with a little message, which will only show on the settings page for as long as it takes to get bumped off by new reps, as only so many will show at a time, unlike Likes, which you will have a permanent record of. If you try to rep the same person before repping a certain number of other people in between, you will get a message saying you have to spread reputation around before giving it to that user again. You can only give so many reps every twenty four hours.

    I hope that helps

    Blogs are kind of like diaries that other people can read and leave comments on.

    Not quite true.. The number of posts you have to make, varies for everyone.. Some only have to do 200, or 500 but it's different for everyone. When I first started, I only had to do 200 posts, but it went to 250, then 500, and now I have to make 1,000 posts to my next power. So it starts out low and doubles over time..

    Very good explanation of the rep power system. That's exactly how it works for me too.

    Interesting, so people can accrue a high rep power via mere time and quantity of posts, and not necessarily quality... Hmm, maybe there should be a QA quality assurance factor that can serve as a means to assure 'rep power' accounts for genuine Christian-like checks and balances if you will...
    For example, a simple icon (-, <, QA) that allows viewers to annotate un-christian-like posts accordingly; in a manner that if a post receives some number of these QA hits on a given post - then their rep power is deducted but some small amount... Just a friendly reminder to folks that we are on a CC forum and that quality considerate posts are often more helpful and less hurtful than many of the less considerate posts that tend to occur over a given time...

    That's the first I ever heard that I never really paid that much attention to it when I was new to figure such things out... most of what I know of the rep system I learned from tourist, and he agreed with my explanation, whereas you recently denied that there is a daily limit, and said that you can rep the same person twice in a row (which you cannot), so until someone else confirms what you say as true, I will not accept it as true

    Giving less than kind members the option to take away from people they may not like, for any number of reasons, what others have given, seems a bad idea. The rep system gets abused as it is, by way of people leaving anonymous nasty comments in a cowardly fashion. There is not even a thumbs down or dislike button, because it is not needed. If you read something you do not like or disagree with, you can either comment on it or ignore it. The latter option is in some cases perhaps the better, but this is a site for discussion, and so everything gets talked about

    Sorry about the weird formatting of your post... I tried to fix it to no avail

    Then the system is wonky because I've been able to rep the same person twice in a row, and others have been able to rep me twice in a row.. And Tourist first got the 1000 posts to next power from me, because that's how many I have to do, so he may have thought it was the same for everyone. It isn't. I've observed it all since day one.. lol

    So, if you can't rep twice in a row, how come others here can do it? Maybe not everyone can, but I know of at least 4 others besides me who CAN.

    You can give up to a certain number of reps in a twenty four hour period, but you cannot rep the same person twice in a row, or even after repping two or three people in between. You have to rep at least eight or nine other people before you can rep that first person again. That is why you see people posting messages about having to spread reputation around before giving it to that member again.

    Hi Magenta, I do agree and understand the concern and rationale. BTW, I always enjoy your very considerate and well thought out posts.
    I do believe that a well managed 'QA' response could serve as a forcing function to mitigate against the more 'hurtful' posts with a few well thought out constraints. for example:
    - limit 1 'QA' response for every 25-50 'Like' responses
    - a QA only has an effect if 5 other people QA the same post/poster
    - The poster is notified every time 5 people QA'd their post and their Rep Power is deducted by ~5 (for example)
    - limit 1 'QA' response to the same person until a 'QA' has been given to at least 5-10 other people
    - QA responses should be anonymous - to avoid any unwarranted retaliation or presumption of personal attacks
    - QA statistics could be reported to moderators - as I suspect some very telling outcomes will be deduced.
    - individual QA trends could be tallied and reported to determine any bias - report/mitigate personal attacks.
    - popular QA trends would indicate the recipients of the most QAs from the CC audience - ie the silent majority...

    The spirit and intent is to implement the notion of a checks and balances to ensure more helpful and less hurtful posts. more considerate and less inconsiderate. More patient and less impatient posts... All while being fair, helpful and not hurtful.
    God Bless

    Again, the question: if that is true, then how come I, and at least 4 others CAN rep the same person twice in a row? And that's without repping others in between? Seems to me it works differently for some, than it does for others.. lol
