I get the message about spreading the rep around before I give it to that person again quite a bit. Anyone know how much rep I need to spread before I can give it to the same person again. I've given and not received too but I just figure it will come around eventually.

The FAQ about the rep system has been a dead link for a long time, it may no longer even exist. The moral of this story is that the rep system is what it is, and only one person here can really explain why it is set up the way it is. If anybody dares me... I'll tell you what I think of the rep system... and we can see how long it takes before it gets censored. I like Dimensions, and I have met many wonderful people here. It is a good place to socialize, but the rep system is one of the reasons I believe that Dimensions is not a serious venue for the promotion of fat / size acceptance and probably never will be.

People will rep you here and there as time passes, they build up sooner or later Kendra. In the overall scheme of life they really don't mean very much.

I also noticed that the number of reps per day have decreased since the server crash... possibly a default setting of the web board software?

No...it was getting that way before.......can you still "spread the same rep" as you used to, Stan?

Well could you at least wait for somebody to dare you?!? There you go again, getting the rant before the dare! Seems totally extraneous now. <pout>

Well, OK then! I'll just prove I can get over myself when the potential for quality entertainment is sufficiently enticing! Stan, I dare you to tell us what you think of the rep system! Double dog dare, if that helps any? Please be graphic.

Just as an aside, most of my favorite people are those I know I wouldn't have been allowed to sit next to in school.

Good observation RentonBob... I think there was a breach Dog Dare etiquette here. Besides, I've totally lost my momentum here...


Lets see, how was I going to execute this rant...




... ah yes.


Rep "cans" not really cans... not worth the effort, not valuable... more like little pieces of colored shit squashed into ice trays and spray painted... not like gold dubloons... people who dwell... get a life, yada yada... Gold suns like pieces of guano squashed into cookie molds and also spray painted... the only value... potential phosphate content...


... something like that.


Anyhoo, I'll have to give you guys a rain check on this little tirade... I owe ya one.

Welcome to the BHM/FFA board! Be warned though, the BHM/FFA board will have the same effect on you that Vegas had on Elvis. Pretty soon your belly is going to be straining the limits of your sequined jumpsuit. You get more than rep on this board.

Well, I'll regretfully accept your rant check if you'll just place my dare in your safety dareposit box. Safe travels, good sir.

I think rep is definitely a double edged sword. It's a fun feedback system on the one hand and I do like getting it, even spite rep. Still, once in awhile I'll wince a bit before posting something volatile or non-mainstream because I know somewhere down the line it'll probably cost me some rep. I still post whatever it was; I just don't like the wincing. Feels like incipient political correctness, which I find reprehensible.

I executed the breach of Dog Dare etiquette in the hopes that Stan would not lose momentum, and grace us with an awesome rant. Saw no need to prolong the beauty of a good Stan rant with some needless posts. Either way, I think you got your point across without the need for a rant. I have many similar feelings on the rep system too, but I do enjoy reading some of the comments, and spite rep is always fun.

Those folks who repped me -- thank you. I miscalculated the can and point count for 2 cans, but you all did me proud. Guess I still need to pound the ground more to earn it, and that's okay by me.
