    I was surprised I wasn't in the negative.

    But it is dumb.

    P.S. All kidding aside, it is a manipulative way for forums to try to motivate their members to post more. You know, if you're a real man then you'll work to up your Rep Power number, right? But in reality it means nothing. The more you post, obviously the more you visit, and the more you visit, the more the forum can charge its advertisers. Seriously, pay no attention to your "Rep Power" number. It's a ploy.

    Of course I'm assuming all this... because I'm paranoid.

    I like ploys: let's play. Everyone on this thread will post 5 posts a day every day in addition to their regular posts. This is what I was talking about above after I researched "REP Power"

    Look, your Rep Power went from 1 to 3.

    Way to freakin' GO!

    Soon you'll leave umarth in your dust.

    I know, not saying much.

    I thought maybe "Rep Power" had some connection to the amount of time you've been a member of MTBR.com. If there is any connection between your rep power and your post count then it makes no sense. There are people out there with more than triple my post count and their rep number is far lower than mine.

    Honestly I think its just another gimmick put in place by "Da' Man" to hold us down.

    I just added to your reputation. See the bursting cloud thingy? I clicked that and gave you approval... not that you were seeking it...

    This Rep Power thingy came at the same time as the sudden push to get more reviews posted.

    On my way to Repdom? I don't know if I'm ready... It reminds me of the time my grandpa said that I was ready to be promoted to operate the sausage stuffing machine, hence forth known as the sausage fiasco of 1978... Maybe we are not all meant for Rep Power?

    So I attempted and failed at removing the rep **** from my personal **** ****, but to no avail.

    I decided on a new goal, and hopefully I'll get some help- I want to be the MTBR member furthest in the hole. You know what to do.

    LOL... On some other forums, we keep on clicking each other's REPs just for the fun of it. Then boost to each other about how we are better coz our rep is more... LOL

    It's just something else to give Fo an ego boost.

    One forum I used to frequent had a thanking system, where you could thank people for their useful posts. Then you'd have the number of times you were thanked as a metric rather than a postcount or "rep." This seemed to promote more community than competition, provided no benefit for useless or distasteful posts, and obviated the "+1" post indicating agreement. Worked pretty well, at least in that community.

    I don't think you have to log out because my rep power is 3 and I never log out. I keep a tab open 24-7 to MTBR. I am always logged in so if you needed to log out my Rep power would be 1. Anyway, today is a new day. 1
