Ah, okay. I haven't seen a zero yet and the FAQ doesn't indicate a fourth option. As far as the 0/disabled, I don't see 'disabled' unless you mean the tooltip and, for some strange reason, tooltips don't work on my browser at this site unless I enable scripting which I usually don't do (anywhere). I do see the (numbers) to the side of the blocks, though, so presumably the absence of a number and the colored/clear blocks would cover it.

Well, it affects you if you change your mind and, even if you don't care to get rep in and of itself, you might want to give rep and will be less able to do so with your own rep being low. But, yeah, this is all theorizing at this point. I just figure it's better to roll out suggestions and concerns sooner rather than later.

I still haven't received much feedback on this one. For context see: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post4081456

If no one is against this, it's possible I'll make a one time reputation addition based on the thanks system statistics.

I think that's quite fair, and a good idea.

I think it would be a good idea. Though it needs to be balanced to make sure that an appropriate rep is given vs having someone's rep skyrocket.

i like this. this reminds me of experience points for some video games. some of us gamers like collecting xp for nonsense (like a gun modification/ or fancy graphics on a car) but this system serves a practical purpose (helping others with problems) as well as bragging rites.

sorry, i've been away for awhile; have we finalized the formula to calculate reputation ?

To show newbies that:
  1. Posting in SMS is never okay as it obfuscates the text in the post
  2. The only way any of us are going to help them is if they provide details and command outputs
  3. They need to Google or read documentation before posting
  4. They should never fork the discussion into two threads because then we don't know which thread to reply to
  5. Hijacking threads with personal help questions is poor forum etiquette as it draws attention away from the topic at hand
  6. Threads with one-word titles like "Help me!" or "Urgent" without descriptions of the problem will not get much attention

Makes sense now?

Not really, no. What was the link-back in response to? It seems rather random. Linkbacks with no real explanation or hint at what you are referring to are just confusing when they don't follow the flow of a thread.

It simply linked to a post I made before about guidelines for newbies.

Does any one think my judgment was wrong in the following contexts ?

I recently gave a DOWN vote here :

and an UP vote to the OP here (for a good question) :
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...reated-829038/
