    I gave up ages ago thinking of how many reps I accumalated. This was after gaining my first light green pip one week and then falling to a lowly 5 dark green ones again the following week. Now I think it is down to about 4 but don't really care much.

    Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who actually do.

    I agree that reps aren't really that important.
    Sometimes someone will put a lot of work into a post to help someone and they don't get repped whereas another person will get lots of reps just for copying and pasting something. We all know who the helpful people are even if they don't get the reps they deserve.

    I just noticed I lost some reps. Going off to have a sulk.

    so how would we do that - manually - at the moment system is automatic

    I suppose it is hard to get a system just right. I am happy with the way things are myself. I remember being lucky enough to post a big points code a year or two back and wooooooah, up went my reps - and I was thrilled. I think that some people must still rep their friends regularly, as there are some members who seem to have loads of pips, but not sure why.

    Because we are so helpful

    However I have noticed you can post a barcode and get half a dozen reps (thankyou!) and then post a long detailed reply to one member who has asked a question specific to their circumstances, and not even get one from them! I have had lots of reps for a three word jokey answer and none for one I have felt is really useful or helpful!

    So no system is ever going to be 'fair' as far as effort expended to reps received is concerned.

    As others have said, really what does it matter? As long as I keep my star I'm happy
