    That happens in dark souls discussions too. I'm probably one of the few who thinks like this, but in my opinion there shouldn't be reputation/points counts at all. It is too often a way to punish someone disagreeing with the mainstream opinion or simply a way to punish someone disagreeing with you. I won't name any names, but some members here get way too much negative reps just because they often get into arguments and they like to defend their views. I honestly don't think anyone should have worse than zero reputation.

    I realize the purpose of positive reputation, but it has many problems too. For example, i have a fairly good reputation but vast majority of it comes from one single thread and a few thanks that i've received, and i feel it is a bit silly. Of course I appreciate every single thanks and + i've received but i don't want anyone to think my opinions or dark souls knowledge is something more than theirs just because i have a higher reputation. This of course applies to everyone and not just me. I don't mean to sound hypocritical in any way, i just simply don't like the whole reputation/point system very much.

    I'm glad that this has been discussed in a civil manner. There have been some good points raised by those who've contributed and I'd like to thank you all for taking part.

    I believe any system of gauging contribution has its flaws, but I think it evens out for the most part over time. That would probably extend into off topic as well. But I think what we have here is a really tight knit community and we look at each other as companions before other players first. It's a wonderful thing, but for the sake of newcomers and the like, the rep should count for Dark Souls related stuff directly. The true rep from off topic will have to remain the intangible tying of heartstrings happy

    All I know is emergence declared this my section in a chat so I win the popularity contest anyway. On a serious note, there's probably no great answer to this. I'd like my five Rep points from the pink gorilla joke to count 8') but I admit I have a lot of uprepped nonsense here.

    Do I have enough points for my mountain bike yet by the way?

    It was supposed to be one of those unobtainable prizes. We didn't seriously think anyone would actually ever reach 3000 points.

    We can always just put out the bonfire. Lot's of kids smokin' up that joint, instead of marshmellows... sometimes both, commonly.

    Can you throw pennies at a wall?

    I also have a bike. I just want the one in the catalog too. No way am I spending my points on a bamboo backscratcher

    I can ride a bike... I can't chain a bike, unless it takes five to ten minutes on average...

    I prefer walking anyways. lol

    I meant park chaining. Not the chains that make it go around.

    I knew someone would make the other choice, somehow. 🤡

    I frequent the Off-topic part off the forums. So I say yes; They should count.
