    A Reminder about Rep and Giveaways

    You can not get or ask for rep for giveaways. It's like buying rep, which is a no no. It has been a rule for a long time.

    What should one do if if one inadvertently receives rep for a giveaway?

    I assume if someone got a huge string of rep off a giveaway, it'd be moderated and removed?

    Technically, if you'd rep somebody without winning something on a giveaway, but just to show appreciation for the initiative, it's not like buying at all.

    Well somebody could rep before the giveaway is done.
    The main reason for this is because at one point there were tons of giveaways everyday, and people adding "don't forget to rep" and other similar things. So it's easier to just say no rep and no asking/hinting at rep in giveaways.
    Giveaways shouldn't be done with the sole motive that people will rep, it should be something somebody does to be nice
    If somebody gets rep for a giveaway, it won't all be taken away or anything like that. But if they constantly do giveaways, or all their rep is from giveaways, it might be looked into.

    Sorry guys, we have come to an agreement that if someone wants to give rep to a user for a giveaway it should only be 1 reputation and not anything more (per giveaway).

    That's quite fair if you think about it.
