    I think I get that. So if I've given rep points to up to 10-12 people in the past I can't give to any of those people again until I've given to someone else. That's silly. I'm sure it wasn't that limiting before. I've been giving Rep Points to the same people for years. So long if they weren't consecutive it worked fine.
    I've looked in settings and I can't find anything related to Rep Points at all.

    Not silly...the reputation system has always worked like this (needed to give reputation to other members before giving reputation back to the same member again).

    The "must spread some reputation around"...is one way we prevent abuse's of the reputation system. You may have been giving the same reputation to the same people for years...but you must have interspersed giving rep to the same people with other members as well.

    We take the reputation system seriously...since it can be a very important measure for members with an issue/question...to gauge the quality of a response from any given current member. And a members reputation is also useful when involved in Buy/Sell/Trade transactions (trustworthiness).

    We definitely appreciate everyone's use of the reputation system.

    @Rod:

    As Nick stated, it's always been this way otherwise we would have our favorites and maybe pass up on those who deserve it.

    If you feel that someone deserves rep for an outstanding reply and the rep system tells you that you need to spread it around, you can always reply to the post and compliment the person directly. Or, send him/her a PM doing the same.

    Or invite the OP to give the "Thumbs Up". Many newcomers don't know about the reputation system. So tell them how to use it.

    Can also use these two threads to assist newer members with the reputation system as well:

    Okay, I accept that, but where is the list? Can someone give me the path? I spent 10-15min last night looking through settings and couldn't find it.

    Sometimes it just so happens that it's one (not the same as last time) of the 10-12 people on this list that I want to send rep points to. Case in point: I wanted to send rep points to Chas, but couldn't, so I thought I should also send RP to Ian, but couldn't, so I thought well Bob was also helpful, same deal. Thats a bit limiting when it just so happens that everybody I choose on one thread is part of my list.

    They’re not in Settings, they are on the Settings page. On the Settings page, the entire page lists “Latest Reputation Received” and “Latest Reputation Given”. I hope that helps.

    Ah, I've got it and I realise that it's not just me, of course, it never is. But in this case it's true.
