    Default What is 'rep'ing'?

    I just saw some wisecracks about this 'feature' that I somehow noticed a few days ago - what is this? a popularity contest? I have said some dumb things and some smart things - is this just a rating of how many times people thought I was an idiot? Or awesome?

    My Rep power is only 6 - I am feeling a bit insecure.


    Seriously, I don't get it. I there a point to this?

    check. I just Googled 'rep power forums' and an MTBR thread explained it. Weird. Don't we just follow things we are interested in and if we aren't interested in someones opinion we ignore what they've said?

    Presumably, six people like me - based on smart quips or positive sales transactions? Or a cool bike? or my cat obituary? Honest question: Is this rep power used to enable people to make faster judgements about who they like/respect/trust?

    So, more important than who likes me is to know who doesn't like me ;).

    In this vsalon, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.

    If you care about rep power it's an automatic -10, so watch out :)

    What are you worried about? Look how high your rep power is.

    Ha ha - I was joking. I was a bully in school, so I totally get it. Plus I was super popular. Errr, I mean I am still super popular . . . I think . . .

    I assume that it was just some sort of 'upgrade' to the standard vsalon platform . . . .

    What if I told you that, as of right now, everyone has an A in this class? It is up to you to keep it.

    There's a direct correlation to rep# & the # of logos on one's kit.

    The Rep Power meter is based on a DARPA psyops algorithm that measures the self worth of computer users. Pretty much anyone above a three is an arrogant Adonis. Anyone below a three is a cesspool of insecurities.

    It's a measurement that goes up for every $20 you donate to the needy, orphans or help little old ladies cross the street.

    I saw that for the first time a couple of days ago. It confused me because how does this forum know how many reps I can do? I do several reps of squats but, bench presses are just pitiful. This explanation makes more sense I guess.
