Spreading around reputation

Someone just made a really good post, and I want to give her rep for it, but it says I have to spread the reputation around before I can give to her again. I've read the rules, and it says I have to give five other people reputation before I can give the same person reputation again.

While I understand the motive behind the current system, it seems to me that if someone makes two good posts in a row, I should be able to rep them both without having to find five other worthy posts (or wait for five more worthy posts to be made, since I've already repped most of the good posts that have already been made).

In order to be constructive, I have thought up of a few suggestions for alternative solutions.
-Impose a time limit instead of the giving rep to 5 other people system. Something along the line of 6-12 hours. This way, people would still have a hard time artificially pumping up each other's reputation, but wouldn't pose too much of a problem for rewarding people who make a couple of excellent posts.
-Remove the restriction for members whose reputation is above a certain point. People who have accrued enough reputation can probably be trusted not to screw with the system.

Thanks for your time.

you got that right

But seriously, Im glad you brought that up....as I never seem to bother reading the rules....whoops...

I prefered the old karma system because there were no restrictions, I think....don't hold me to that as its been awhile since that was here...ahh the good 'ol days where we were devoid of people like chi*turns around* err what? *muffled voice from the back of the room* im still typing?....oh shit!....sorry thats enogh for today....

Re: Spreading around reputation

yeah, i think if someone has made a few good posts, it should be allowed to rep them. I have gone to give someone rep days after i gave them other rep, and it annoys me that i get that "spread around rep" message.

Can you reduce it to 2 or 3 weasel? or have it available again after a few days?

Re: Spreading around reputation

You know if you need people to give rep to you could always give it to me.. It's usually a cold day in hell when rep flies my way, must be the damn cat. But yeah, read around the board for now, must be some posts out there that need rating.

Re: Spreading around reputation

i agree with yugoloth [surprise!].

i don't like having to wait, i have no patience. and there are a few people here who deserve rep a lot more than others, and/or on a more consistent basis.

perhaps a revision of the system is needed.

Re: Spreading around reputation

My trusty moderators and I had a discussion and decided to leave the spread where it is for now. Since there is a daily limit on the ammount of rep you can give, chances are even 1 rate by 2 people will put them "ahead" of others. Also it encourages you to give rep to people other than the person you always rate.

The only problem I see with that is as far as I can tell, intelligence abounds in specific people and I find myself often agreeing only with certain people.
I don't talk enough to have truly made friends with anyone, but when I do give rep, it's usually to someone that I've agreed with a bunch in the past. Most likely I'd be giving rep to that person quite a bit.
...I forgot what I was trying to say, here. Ignore me. o.O

Re: Spreading around reputation

you made perfect sense.

basically, some people deserve rep a lot, other not so much, a few never.

fact is, we're limited in repping those who deserve it because there's always something of theirs to rep - and the system we have now demands charity.

Re: Spreading around reputation

rep system is a waste of time and effort. unless it is tied into the store, there is no real incentive to even try to accumulate it. and if there were a real incentive for it, members would cheat for it.
