    What I find really bad form is the constant reminding to do so if one feels someone has helped.
    I've not noticed anyone constantly reminding others to rep them.

    If someone does have a high "need" for recognition, then handing them a rep (if the post meets your standards) might just help them. Real life might be getting them down.

    As for "having a high reputation makes them that little bit better than anyone else": I've not seen anyone act like that either.
    Well perhaps I had better not say anything on this subject because there are members who do refer to others repping them by clicking the scales method if they or others have been helpful. I have not or ever have said that they have actively asked for reputation, and I stand by my principles that if one is good enough to rep then it should not need a reminder to do so.

    The only reasons I can see for doing this is for the reasons I alluded to and I will not rep anyone who adds that to their posts because if they are good enough then they really do not need to hint at others repping them when helped out, and I would rep them if I think they deserve it.

    Clearly some of those who post "rep if I or others have helped" or "click on the scales at the top corner of the screen" are very good at solving issues (and I readily admit are much more experienced than I) are therefore more able to give advice or offer solutions to problems then I am - therefore I am more than willing to give them reputation on the grounds that they are more capable than I.

    Personally i find it very beggingful(if that's a word) for rep, i mean you help people because you want the feeling inside you to feel good about yourself. If you do it just for the rep, I'll consider you as scum.

    I love helping people and i feel good inside me that I actually could help someone with their problem.

    Those who do it is an ego. This is MY opinion and my thoughts. You are free to throw how much crap at me for my words. This is the way i think, at least.

    I wish more people would actually learn how to give REP. Especially the new members rather annoying helping them and not getting some rep back sometimes.
    I will never REP anybody that ask for one or asking for one in their signature as you are doing.

    I strongly suspect that one reason some people do not give rep, especially newbies, is they do not know or understand the rep system and/or do not realize the scales are the rep button. I'm not asking that the scales be changed to something else (mostly because I have no idea what to change them to); I'm just pointing out that there may be another reason why people don't rep other than a lack of manners.

    I have the same principle. However good post, however earned rep would be, begging it is IMO distasteful and ugly. It's not, it should not be the reason we are here.

    I DO give reps because it is a way to say thank you.

    I just now noticed that I also have been given some acknowledgement and I have not said thank you, because I did not see it. So hereby Thank you for my

    I have to study this badgers and reputation thing.:)

    I'm happy to get any feedback from my posts trying to help someone.
    Most of my posts go unanswered, so i don't know if they helped, or caused more problems for the OP.
    I know i'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and the older i get the duller the blade gets
    I'd rather hear "Thanks David, that helped" or "David your an idiot, your suggestion is useless" than no feedback at all.
