I can't give or take reps. I get some error when I try to give and several ppl say they can't give me either. How does this thing work?

It would be hilarious if this was some sort of elaborate attempt to get people to rep him to test if they could or not lol.

But really though, are you experiencing on the app or website? If one, then try the other to see if that works. That can help narrow down if it's a problem with your app/browser or if it's your account.

I'm assuming it's related to your account if others can't rep you too.

Including the exact error message would be helpful.

Our apologies... we implemented something that seems to have had an added glitch.
We wanted to allow members with 30 (as opposed to higher) post count for reps to raise the rep-ees count.
Seems to have locked it to also needing 30 posts in order to receive reps Facepalm

Mistakes happen... please hang in there. Peace

The dev team is in the west coast so it may be a while before they are online and can address this.

I tested it now on App. I got an error first time and then no more errors. By the time I could take the screenshot it disappeared but it began with "Sorry, ....."
This issue is fixed for now. Thanks! Schooby

Hi,

How do I implement the fix? In a post yesterday, I received over 15 reputation points of 0. Thank you in advance.

it's not retroactive, unfortunately. from the time the fix was deployed reps should have resumed working correctly.

Those happened before the fix rolled out.

It should be working now though.

We are working on fix to re-calculate the reps given out during the time period when the issue was happening. The fix should be done by mid next week Smilie

Honest question:
I've read all of the discussions that I've found in every forum about reps and I still don't understand why people want them so bad. The posts are full of sarcasm and never really say why we should care. I've been here for thirteen years and am still at "meh". What's the big deal?

That is a good question! I think people look at reps as a way to thank others, not just for posting a good deal, but also stuff like sharing helpful information.

It is a way to say "Hey,that was funny!" if someone posts a good joke. It is a way to help establish a friendship of sorts: " thank you for always posting such good stuff! you are good at this stuff!"

In short reps can be used to communicate appreciation, gratitude and genuine thankfulness.

That being said, reps aren't for everyone and you do have ability in your profile to turn them off if you wish.

Reps also are meant to indicate those who are helpful and/or post great deals. The assumption is that the more reps a person has the more their opinion on a deal is likely to be correct.
Sort of a "trustworthy" indicator.
