Far too many times the rep system gets to be obsessively focussed on, abused and ends up eventually just being its own downfall; whereas with a "I found this helpful" system, it's nicer and more useful.

I agree with being nice to inexperienced posters/lifters. We all have to start somewhere and while Google is awesome, there is a ton of conflicting information and misinformation through which a novice would need to sift.
I dont think anyone over here is really bothered about reps (plus no one really knows how it works and whos got what lol ) The great thing is everyone on here pretty much gives sound advice and helpfull/encouraging info so it just becomes ridiculous cos you would just want to rep everything...

For me, the reps here don't really mean anything. I come here because of that reason. I know I'm getting solid advice from people who don't care about silly green pixels on a computer screen. If I get repped, thanks. If I get negged, oh well. I'll find some tissues to wipe away my sorrow..


and for fun, reps for all here til I run out today... unless that is abusing the system too much?.
