I don't know if he's back for action, but I just saw his name down on the active users list. So he's here at least.

Now that I look at my reps every fourth or so is from H-I, such a nice person.

Yes, he does rep a lot, and many of his makes one rich! He is a very generous Downer!

You have to catch his eye, though(I think). Not just a great post with a lot of info and sound evidence. It has to have that something extra. Sometimes that extra can be a sig, as I've found.

Really? I don't really have any repeats in my reps. I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad sign.

Wait a second: my smilies are in a different order every time I click "Reply"...

Question Query

Are those are the numbers of points given out/received rather than the number of times that rep has been given/gotten, or is it the other way around?

I ask because some people are giving out such large amounts of rep that the actual number of reps given to different people might be smaller than would be inferred from looking at the numbers.

Just being nosy.

Those are the number of individual reputations given and received, not their point values.

1420!

What I find interesting is that davem has received one more rep than Lalwende yet Lal got to 'steals taters from confused gaffers' first. Maybe that shows that quality is better than quantity, or some other such wisdom.

I also notice that HerenIstarion, Child of the 7th Age, Bethberry, Mithalwen, and Eomer of the Rohirrim can be seen on all three lists. Congratulations to all of you, and thank you.

And thanks to The Barrow-Wight for showing us the lists.

It hasn't even been a couple months yet since the last list, but I know the WW games have been generating much rep-giving(and not just in those threads). So... How 'bout another list?

Is it possible to catch HI? (I doubt it.) Is Lalwende untouchable? (hmm) Has some newbie come up into the lists? Only The Barrow-Wight can tell us!

I can tell you now that I'm probably not up on that list. Mind you, I did get four reps for my part in the WW game. Thanks to those who did rep me by the way. And now I'm in Gurthang's sig. How cool is that!?!?

I'm digging up an old thread, I know... but I'm painting and between coats I've had little else to do besides read through old threads... well I have stuff to do but the energy to do it is another matter. Anyway, I saw this one and wondered what the current count is? Both all time and within-last-month?

Humor me, B-W?

I second D18's idea of a new list. That would be nice to know. Of course, if it's too much work, then we're not going to have it. (And that's a bit self-evident...)

Yes, it has been awhile since we saw a list, and I'll have to admit that I'm wondering and hoping that my name might appear... sort of a vain thing, I guess.

But, more seriously, I wouldn't be suprised if it's changed quite a bit. I think the last list was out before the werewolf crazy hit. I know that the games generate a lot of giving and receiving, so the list might be completely different.

Reminder

Although I fully admit to a tendancy to digression, I would suggest we try to keep this thread on topic rather than comandeer it as a substitute for the Reputations thread, which was closed for valid reasons.

I think it was there established that if anyone wishes to thank those who have given them rep they should do so by PM and any anonymous reppers are, by definition, happy to remain unthanked.

They'd have to go to absurd lengths to get such a worthless prize. The system is explained totally in the Reputations thread, which was closed a while back. Have a search through the forum and it will tell you all you need to know.

A much simpler explanation will be that if you click on the scale icon of your own post, you'll find the reps you've received for that post (if any), and not "What do you think of your own post?"

Calm down, narfforc - since giving anonymous rep is an option on this forum, there is nothing perfidious about it. I would guess that we've all had to cope with it at some time or other (I have); there's nothing terrible about it. Everyone has a right to express his/her opinion, even if I don't agree.

Well, I for one always sign mine when I give out negetive reps. I like for people to know it's me who is smiting them.

(And really, I can count how many neg reps I've given on one hand and still have fingers left over.)

Stop right here!! The reputation thread was closed because of chat posts, and this one is very likely to get closed as well. If you have something personal to say to another member, please use the excellent PM system.

In case you hadn't noticed, this thread is about reputation givers - how about praising the person who has given you the most reputation points or the best comments instead of whining about the few negative reps?!


edit: This post is not addressed to any one specific member, but a moderator's reminder to all involved. It might be a good idea to close this thread until everyone cools off again.

Before you close this thread allow me to apologise to the person, whoever it was that I called a moron, I am sorry, you have every right to disagree with what I wrote, secondlly may I humbly apologise to all members who have had to read my childish outbursts (even Obloquy), I am sorry. I would at this point like to thank all those who have given me reputation points, especially:

Bethberry
Lalwande
Davem
Gurthang
Esty
Kuruharan
Dancing Spawn
Manwe
Hookbill

If you are one of those I have forgotten, it is not intentional
