    Prohibit Asking for Rep and Thanks

    Hi users,
    I have opened this thread for to tell you about an idea that certainly has already been discussed here.
    I see too many giveaway/thread with the rules " or for participate", and other with " AND for partecipate"!, so if 10 people participate, you end up with 20 points...

    I think this is contrary to the proper use of rep point, a user should be thankful if the post is useful, not because it is forced.

    If we add the rule to avoid asking for a rep point i think we can have more elder/premium user with real rep point for useful post, not only because forced if i want to partecipate to a giveaway/thread

    In the past, only once time, i have used the same system but it was the first and the last time, just check it out my giveaway thread in the freebies section




    This is what I think

    P.S. Now give me AND for this thread or go away LOL

    Like making people take it off their posts is going to help. They will still get or for the giveaway regardless. It's people saying "Thanks" for giving away stuff, without actually saying it.

    Think about it.

    What post on this forum doesn't get or ?

    I would have to agree with this also. I have used this system just once myself on a giveaway, but it is rather wrong to make it a requirement in order to enter for the giveaway. I agree 100%

    Matt is right in a sense also.....

    Most people, Like I, put at the bottom that it is not a requirement, but is appreciated.

    Think about it.
    I think you see the question from a different point of view.
    If someone want to thanks a giveaway it's normal, but it's not normal to make a rules like "if you me you can have this", normally in real life you can thanks after receiving the good, if you want, why do you compel me to do so before?

    Check it out my last giveaway thread of hitman beta, without the rules " me or go to hell" not everyone has give me a for my post, but they participated the same at the giveaway...but prefer it that way, at least know who thanked really for the useful post and not because I have imposed a rule

    For many ( and i think the is 98% of users ) is a requirement, that's the problem ( i don't want to post here the link, just check it out the freebies section )

    If you want to write:
    If you like my post give me a --> OK
    or you will not partecipate --> No good

    Obviously, that is prohibited - just report such threads.
