    It didn't use to be like this.

    I would think poeple have reserved their rep for people, as can be observed by so-called "sigs" stating "to pos rep ..." and "to neg rep ...".

    Firstly, why state such things in your sigs?
    Is it to show other people how much you like/dislike other members? The simple solution would be to ask a mod to add a feature of some type of reminders, which I would think has already been added (apoligise for not knowing if this is so, I havent been around long - which makes all your situation worse as then why are you using your sigs as reminders when these are available?)
    I would think you all have a very bad memory, so as to not remember who you NEED to rep and who not to.

    Stop rep whoring.

    I sometimes want to rep a specific post but have to wait for the dawn of day and know that by then, I'd have either forgotten where the post was or the thread would've moved down the pages at an alarming rate. So I just create a thing in My Links to remind me.

    I also do not understand the thing in sigs.

    (User Notes did used to be there, but is like, not now. It was cool cos it was private and easy to create/access but they took it away)

    This is how it has been as long as I've been on the site. Infact the "People I like on TSR" bits of sigs seemed to have dissapeared lately due to people like you complaining. Rep whoring and sig reserving used to be a hell of a lot worse only 6months ago.

    It's the first time I've done it, but I put it in my sig because its the only place where I'm guaranteed to see it, and I don't want the people who helped me with my maths to think I wasn't grateful. Most days I jsut don't rep at all though, unless someone really annoys me

    i didnt give a poo about it all until someone neg repped me for being an "anti white homo" in a post about nick griffin, where i showed no favour to either side of the argument (im also white, which is odd!).

    then i got another one in a post where i hadnt done anything to offend anyone, i think they just used that thread to neg rep for something else. they also didnt say way. this all annoyed me.

    i also lost a positive rep for whoring, which i was not doing.

    i do have something in my sig, which is a moan about people not saying why they neg rep, but im about to take that out, since this thread had reminded me that im not angry anymore.

    as for positive reps, i dont really care that much. i dont have that freindly relationship on here that a lot of people do. its always nice though.
