reputation points

Everyone I click on it says I need to spread the love first. But it seems like people I have never seen before. Anything I need to do. Coincidence?

The software won't allow you to keep giving the same person reputation over and over. It requires that you give others rep and that a certain amount of time has passed.

Are you sure this is happening on people you've never seen before?

Click on what? I use the app 99% of the time and don't see the rep points, so it's a non-issue for me. When I was forced :P to use the website, I saw people asking (being nice) for rep points in their signature, but that's really kinda sad IMHO.

Well, I dont think its same people and I have been "spreading the love". Do you know how many people you have to give to before you can go back to a previous person? I really am not trying to just give to one person. Not sure.

As for giving points for being nice, I really try to give points for knowledge so others can see good advice was given.

Actually I'm not sure, I want to say it's around 10 or so, but I'd have to check. I did run a scan and don't see that you've left any reputation for anyone since December of last year, so this is kinda odd.

I don't think the reputation feature is working on the mobile app as of yet, however.

Is this what the +1's are for?

Nope. That's to signify that the post you're quoting/posting behind is good advice, recommendation, etc. IMO a better barometer than the rep points (which can't be seen by app users anyway).

"+1" usually just means you agree with the previous post.

i feel like i have been having this issue with rep as well. i just started trying to give it out again for the first time in a long time, and have only successfully given rep to one person.

I think maybe it should also be noted that only posting +1 is against the community rules. It's fine to post +1 and then continue with an explanation or further advice, just not '+1' or something like that which does not contribute to the thread.

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.
