    I wanted to rep someone, but it wouldn't count my rep and told me go "try rating some other users" instead.

    why?

    You can only rate posts by the same member again after you've rated a reasonable number of other member's posts, to prevent abuse of the reputation system.

    Could it not be changed so that it's either after you've repped a certain number of users or after a certain length of time has passed?

    I'd have no problem with this as it would achieve the same goal, but it's one for admin to consider I'm afraid.

      Was the message changed? I recall getting a different one before ('You have recently rated a post by this user'). :iiam:

      Yeah :yep: Back in the day, whether it was in the live version of 3.8 or not (I can't remember - it might just have been on the dev site), it said "Chill." at the end too :p:

      I agree, this would be preferable.

      Well I (and others I know too) only really frequent a few forums/threads as we dont necessarily have time to look through some of the more busy ones. This would mean that those people are disadvantaged if fewer than 40 people also frequent them. I know you don't want rep circles etc and you could implement a reasonable time frame in which you can't rep someone again

      Yeh, I agree with this. There is only a handful of people on the forum which I post in and I can't rep any of them.
