Please close these threads. They are designed to raise rep points for no real reason, and some of the members who've only been here a few months have over a hundred rep points, while I have been here 8 years I only have 188 rep points. I'm not that concerned with rep points but I am concerned when something is being abused..

And maybe something can be posted about not abusing rep points? Just a suggestion. Thanks.

It's ridiculous. IMO, rep powers shouldn't surpass 100. Ones like Joefizz, who's only been here a short while, has 110-plus powers. And Magenta, who's been here a couple years, started gaining powers like wildfire and kept going..

No one is jealous, Joe. I don't even know how many rep powers I have, because I rarely look at them. But people are posting pics of rabbits and Steve Martin on your thread. THAT is NOT "creative" or "artistic". :rolleyes: That's just an attempt to gain reps for no valid reason..

Uh-oh! Guilty as charged. :p I gave likes & reps out like Halloween candy on the one thread. I didn't realize it would have repercussions... or that reps & likes were that coveted. I only thought it was a silly game. *sorry* :(

nahhh its more to just show if someone is considered a good source of info to newer members who may observe

its also a good way to encourage

i pass out the max usually

but often just for the people who react to another post with fruits of the Holy spirit

sometimes because i was given a good laugh

Hi all...I just want to put my opinion in about the rep threads...I believe when someone makes a post about the Word of God and it truly touches your heart because you know that the person has shown through their post the truths that God is revealing something to you, or they have written a testimony of their life and showing how the Word of God has been used in their life, then I like to give a rep :)...

To me receiving a rep is like getting a little gem, it tells me what I have wrote is either right by using the Word of God, or someone has been touched by my posting, I do not go looking to be repped, but when I am, it lifts me up, why, because that person has been touched by the Word of God ...

Reps are worthy little gems on this site, and I believe they should be respected, but that is just my opinion...xox...
