Angry ARGHHHH!! What does this mean? :mad:

I tried to give some "Rep" points to a couple of posters here and I got this annoying message:

"You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to posterXYZ again."

One question, how do you "Spread" reputation around?

It happened to me today ( for the first time ), and accidentally, while I was looking through some posts, I found one that really caught my attention so I gave it a rep. After that, I gave rep to a person that I originally wanted to give, but I couldn't ( I got the same message that you did )...That's how I "solve" it.

it seems to be a rising source of consternation around here...been driving me nutz for the last several days. Basically you have to give out 20 or so reps to other people before you can tag a certain person again.

Just go to other forums and find worthy posts and give them rep. Eventually you will build up enough rep points to allow you to give rep to the person you want to. It's pretty smart of CD actually, it gets you to go to other forums and read other posts, therefore spreading it around. I found that by having to go to other forums and give rep points, I have learned alot and read some interesting posts by some interesting people. Works for me.

I wonder what the reason or logic behind that is?

It's suppose to keep people from repping the same people over and over. Liz

They think it will help pass rep points out to others so that everyone gets points.

I personally disagree with this new method. I believe that if a post is worthy of a rep then it should be given to that post. Some of the best posts that are there canít be repíed because Iíve given too many to that person or Iíve given too many for the 24 hr period.

My 24 hour period is over so I can give you reps for providing yet another good thread!

Now Iím trying to remember who and where I needed to go back to and give the reps that they deserved the first time I read the post? http://www.airamericaplace.com/boards/style_emoticons/default/scratchhead.gif (broken link)

But the strange thing I've never repped those posters before! That's what's puzzling me..
