PostSubject: Another name for "Rep"   Fri Apr 13, 2012 1:39 pm

Anyone have any suggestions for changing the name of "Rep" to something else? I really don't like the word reputation in relation to how it's received, nor is it a reflection of the posters character. I tend to give "rep" for site contributions and help/comments in threads that I post, which clearly doesn't equal reputation. I think there is a better word I can use, but it hasn't come to mind in the last couple months. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can call it "opinion credits" or something like that. Maybe "forum perspective" or "member perspective" "forum opinion" "member opinion". How about "Hero status". I think that one is the best.

It seems to work more like a a thank you button, or a I like that post. Rep = like it/dislike it but I dont know a good name for it.
The thank you button to me seem kind of useless, because sometime I want to thank more them one person in a posting. and once you use it thats it.

Ok, I updated the name to "Positive Votes" until something better comes along. I really don't like "rep" because it isn't truly reflective of our members, if that makes sense.
