As far as the rep question- I don't think it matters how long it's been, it matters how many other people you give it to. This prevents people from continually giving the same person rep over and over again.
+1

But so is bumping and I see that a lot more . If I could give rep points on the app (see them too), then they'd have a lot more meaning and I don't think I'm the only apper that feels that way.

but what if there is one person who gives good advice over and over?? i run into this problem a lot... there are a handful of people who i consistently want to give rep to for their posts....but a lot of those posts go unnoticed because i can't give them rep. it's nice to just let someone know you liked that post, without having to tell everyone else as well. does that make sense? lol

yeah, i would love to see rep on the app as well. i use the app 50% of the time. it's nice to know what kind of rep the poster has. i know there are a lot of knowledgeable people who may be new to the site so they have no rep yet, but there are also a lot of un-knowledgeable people who just have a lot of posts and no rep. it's signs like that that are helpful when deciding who's advice to take

Rep is nice, but everyone needs to remember... don't take advice blindly! Read, research, read more, and then decide for yourself what *you* think. Taking advice here without engaging your brain, even from people with many green squares, is no different than taking whatever your LFS says as fact. "Well the bottle *says* it cures ich, marine velvet, cyano, AND gives you 0ppm nitrates..."

Regarding the original question though... I've never seen that issue when giving rep. I know I can't give it to someone that I've already given rep to within XX number of times... but I've always been able to give it to new people.

I thnk people forget that this is an "advice" forum and not a "you have to do this or else" forum. If there's one thing everyone should remember, Google is your best friend and so is AA's search engine (although it could use some fine tuning).

I don't have an answer to that but hovering the mouse pointer over the green squares is pretty funny
