I guess ya all value this kinda thing alot it seems, so carry on internet repper dudes.
1. If you don't care about the subject, then why post? You've added nothing constructive to the conversation.

2. You're right. It doesn't mean anything. Guess what. No one cares about what you think. It obviously means something to the folks who have been discussing it in this thread. You trying to act hard and talking about street cred has nothing to do with their priorities.

As far as the mods go (question not asked but fueling the curious), they once had rep like everyone else and then one day they all had 100,000. Therefore, when you see a mods rep points? Only that over 100,000 was actually earned. I think the 100,000 is a bonus for all the work they do on here since many of them don't get paid to police this site.

Recently, I have seen something new that baffled me too Fred. Whenever I've given or received (cant remember which) a lot of rep in the same thread? There is a warning for that too. Cant remember what it is but will post when I see it again.

Oh, and just so you know, this thread will probably be moved to "Fan Feedback!"
Thisi s all very correct. And Harley you sound like a "Future Mod's in Training" r US video.

I have noticed though that people with extremely high rep usually have accumulated it by spending time in the smack talk threads (where most of the reps are given out.)

I basically give out rep when someone tries to contribute something meaningful or makes a good point.

I have run into the spreading around issue but it never seemed to persist.

Maybe I should give rep more often, but can't for the life of me figure out why. Hell, I just found out where the comments were about 9 months ago.

Oh, why do I get rep anyway? I don't post good things and people tend to dislike me.

WHY CAN'T I BE POPULAR?
Tell me about it. I think only one person contributing to this thread has ever repped me. I've even repped some of them. Heck, I might have been one of the first to ever rep you back in the days when you didn't have to be special to post in a P&R forum. I guess we are too much of noobies to get rep from the special people. Oh, wait, I've been around longer than most contributing to this thread? I guess I'm just too much of a <bleep>. LOL.

Seriously though, I've probably repped more than I've actually posted, usually in bursts where I rep a lot in one day, so I see the "spread it around" almost every time I try repping and give up after I see that message 2 or 3 times, lol. And I've never negged.

Dude, you've been around for 7 years, only have 250ish posts, yet somehow everyone knows you.

That's a bit of an accomplishment.

Rep only means something to the folks who truly make this message board a community. It shows that not just any schmuck can jump in here, and act like they own the place.

I saw this correctly answered on the first page. It makes you give rep to other people so you don't just rep the same guy over and over.

From time to time, that "spread the rep" message will show.

A couple of months ago I got a rep from Fred and was legitimately shocked. Most of the old school members hate repping the newer dudes for some reason. Maybe because when they do, it's worth about 40 noob reps.
I've been repped by the older member quite a few times, mods too. I love when BZ reps me, it's worth like 25 points, TBT's rep is worth a lot too, and 34 has repped me once I think, he gives a lot of points too. I don't mean to seem like I'm bragging about fake points, but when the old school guys rep you, it's awesome. I don't think I've ever been repped by Fred though, I feel I would remember it, like it was real special, like when I popped my cherry.

Correction, I have now been repped by Fred. I was right, it is special, I shall remember this day forever and tell my children about it.
