Wow, Akimel, your REP just went through the roof
Nice How To Article
Honestly who really cares. If we truly stop and think about it, we are a bunch of car lovers trying to learn new and improved or old and proven methods to keep our treasures (cars, bikes, RV's, etc.) in the best condition they can be in. If an MOL member is more concerned with "REP" power than trying to help, this defeats the purpose of MOL. In my opinion it is our choice to take the advice of the "posts" or leave it. I read most of them with a grain of salt and attempt (note attempt) to apply common sense. I am just grateful we have a place to share the tricks of the trade. MOL is great! Seriously, do not sweat the "REP POWER", enjoy the reading it is more fun that way.

Pity Reps! I feel really LOW now... OK I'm over it.
OK, now figure this out. My Rep points in My CP is at 75 now. The REP system is just too weird for me.
No more Pity Rep for me, you guys. I like to "earn" my points or Reps. I would just like to know or understand the system VBulletin uses to do the "Calc's" on it, etc. http://www.vbulletin.com/ doesn't explain much about it.
I think all of us would fine if they pulled out the REP system. With a great forum like this, it's people that make the difference, not their Reps.(brown-nosing isn't my forte... but I'm getting better at it).
Al, I understood what you are getting at. Another Forum member pointed the rep point system out to me, and I reward people that give ideas that I think are really unique that I never thought of, or put up a post of their work.
It looks to me like you get automatic reps every time you cross another hundred posts and some for each additional year you've been a member. So actually a new person can jump to a very high number of reps very quickly by posting multiple times to every thread.
Most of my posts come from welcoming new users to MOL. Which I do because of the way I was welcomed to MOL. The warm welcome made me want to stick around and become an active member.
Al's posts are fewer than mine, but have much more meat to them, are well thought out and many times very entertaining. I added to Al's rep a long time ago because of that.
That being said, I think a newbee seeing a users rep count and equating that with years of detailing experience wouldn't alway be an accurate measure.
