Ivan, I am afraid I do not understand the point you are making. Can you please elaborate.

I found this out when I kept being asked by my Answers friends at MVP Global Summit how many Answers I had. I had to explain our rep system which seemed appealing to them, but isn't translatable to how they are judged by a successful post being marked as "Answer" (even when it often clearly isn't - which may be an unfixable flaw since it's the very name of the forum).

Similarly to fill out the MVP re-award application they sent I have to try to convert requested "Answers" to Rep on a spreadsheet . For this reason I attach a letter saying in the past year I have added xx,000 more posts and doubled my reputation points as used by Seven Forums.

Yeah right. It is just a little 'nice to have' extra. But I don't think that's what is driving us. I made more than 20.000 posts on other forums where they have no system like that and I never gave it any though. A simple 'Thank you' was the best one could expect and that was enough for me.

Quite true. One gets it when least expected. Also with the passage of time it becomes more and more difficult to get reps. After all ones store of knowledge is limited.

There seem to also be high times for reps when they are coming in like swarms of birds in the spring and at other times there is the great drought for days on end although you are doing exactly the same job as always.

I think the rep system is a nice touch, but we should not overrate it. I am happy when I could help solve a problem and when the OP says 'Thank you'. I don't think anybody here does spend his time in order to gain fame. The best part is anyhow that we as helpers probably learn the most from our activities - at least that is true for me.

In my case my store is large but like smoke, gone with the wind.

Not if you're learning as you go, you will see your knowledge, brain and rewards grow.

Collect tutorials and links in your bookmarks, then when you have free time read back through them to keep them current for linking.

I find the more of these puzzles I work, the sharper my recall becomes. When I first came here almost 3 years ago, I was starting to reach for words that were always out of grasp. Within a year that went away. It may be the best brain exercise because 1) it's computer science which is smart stuff and 2) the puzzles vary enough that that you can't rely solely on rote but must continually drill new pathways.
