I agree with the result, but not the cause. The forum has been slow. There are many answers for one post. The OP does not feel that any one person really helped.
Yeah, and to OP is usually some new member, that can give 0-1 rep. I think more senior members should be able to give 10-20 rep for helping some noobie, instead of having to give the full 50 points, which they dont usually even give.

I've surprised myself, I had never thought how serious I take this our Seven Forums. I'm 50 years old, first time in my life active in online forums and acting like a teenager. I have to admit, I'm quite often expecting some kind of response if I have been able to give a valid and working solution.

However, the response must not be rep; I get my satisfaction if the OP says thank you. It is more important to know I could help than get some points of doing that. I'd rather see a thank you reply than no reply and some rep points. I am fully willing to admit this might have egoistic reasons: a nice thank you in a post is seen by more members than my rep situation.

+1. Two of my last 5 rep's given went to members with only a couple of posts and no previous rep points. I have nothing against by giving the full 50 points to these two members, but I would rep new members more often if I didn't have to give the full.

Thanks mate, I get so tired of the ones that are always P&M about having fun around the forums, always saying that we're only here to "help and not have fun"; I don't see why we can't do both.
