    Hey Shed Staff...

    Still sort of a newbie and have questions on Reps. Tried to do a search and found a really old thread on the topic.

    Do we have an allotment that we can give out per a time period based on our status - or are they unlimited?

    I see postings that you have to spread around sometimes before giving out again - just trying to find more overall basic info on Reps.

    Many thanks :D

    you can only prop/rep 1 person 1 time then you have to spread it/reputation out (prop other people, sorry I don't know how many it varies from board to board) before you can prop the same person again...

    ...I could be totally wrong though since there's the pay options and what not

    and then there's the old "you have given out to much reputation in the past 24 hours thing" where you prop whore it out and need to take a break

    Why can a memeber follow around another member and take points off every post they make ? Is this normal ?
    I got a troll on here just taking off points for no other reasons than to just be a troll. I dont see the point of it.
    How does that work?

    Do you have to be a member or vip to give people rep points? I'm just curious as a new member to the forums. Any instruction on how to give people reps would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick response Dawg. Totally get where you're coming from about the reps. Once I get more comfortable navigating the site I'll get down to being a paying member.

    Everything you see there is a results of trolls and assholes. I am sorry it has to be this way but people cannot be trusted.

    It's all good bro. I've been a member on forums that have WAY more restrictions than yours. Not to kiss ass but you run a very wide open ship so to speak. Some people have no idea I guess.

    Most forums dont allow political discussion, religion, or even curse words. So yeah, i get what you say.

    Is there a way to thank the people who gave me reputation points privately without being a VIP? Thank you for the points and comments You know who you are. Not sure how the conversation starting thing works either. 150 reputation points to all involved with the site.

    Ok, thanks. Since it was sent privately I wasn't sure if acknowledging them publicly was cool or not.

    I'm a new member and haven't figured out all the basics of the site.

    I have been given rep points with messages and one asking me a question. I have not figured out how to answer or thank people other than do it on a thread (which I assume is not the appropriate way). Is there a way to do this?

    If anyone of the people kind enough to leave me rep points are reading this I appreciate it and apologize if my lack of thanks or replies was rude...it's pure ignorance on my behalf.

    In answer to the question asked...Yes.."KISS Meets the Phantom" was were I lifted the name from....made sure not to run into "username already taken" while signing up.

    Thanks to all...it's appreciated.
