    Giving Rep Questions?

    Hi, so I am still new, but I try to always read older post/guides before I ask questions, however I haven't actually been able to find too much about this topic. There seems to be a lot of guides and posts about getting rep, but not a lot about giving rep.

    I know you are supposed to give rep, when somebody helps you with something, however I was just wondering if there are specific rules or etiquette about giving rep? Like for example, if I find something, that I think is very useful (I am not talking about guides, I know you are allowed to give rep for those), but it wasn't necessarily for me, or I didn't necessarily use it, can I still give rep? I mean, if I think something is very useful and helpful, can I give rep to like, let's say, "reward good/helpful behaviour" ?

    Is there a daily limit on how many times you can rep or how many times you can rep the same person (after you've spread it around)?
    If someone writes a thread wanting to help people with this or that, can I rep even if I didn't use it?
    Also I've seen people post in the graphics section, that they are buying and repping, is that allowed?
    Can you rep an old guide if you think it was very good or helpful?
    Or if somebody really helped me with something, but my rep power is low. Is it then okay to go back and rep them later? (I know you can't rep the same person two times in a row)


    Don't worry, I haven't been spam repping nor do I intend to do that, I would just like to know the rules or etiquettes about this, so I wont break any of them in the furture

    It's mostly because, I've been a little scared to rep (I have done it a few times), because I don't know the rules regarding it. So I would just like this be clear

    Yes you may

    Is there a daily limit on how many times you can rep or how many times you can rep the same person (after you've spread it around)?
    Yes there is but im not sure how many times that is
    It maybe a limit on the number of times you can rep or total number of rep points you can dish out, but there is a limit per day

    If someone writes a thread wanting to help people with this or that, can I rep even if I didn't use it?
    Yes you may

    Also I've seen people post in the graphics section, that they are buying and repping, is that allowed?
    This shouldnt be allowed, no
    You cant rep someone over a trade
    You buy what you pay for, repping is then unneseccary

    Nor can you exchange money for rep, cK is very strict on this
    Giving rep for giveaways is also unappreciated and will be removed where there is a large influx of rep directly due to giveaways

    Can you rep an old guide if you think it was very good or helpful?
    Yup, definitely


    Or if somebody really helped me with something, but my rep power is low. Is it then okay to go back and rep them later? (I know you can't rep the same person two times in a row)
    This is kind of a grey area I think but you shouldn't have to do that.
    You rep what you can where its necessary
    Repping someone is all subjective too
    E.g I have been repped 7 points by someone for a guide while another person with 6 rep power gave me +1
    It varies from person to person

(I know you can't rep the same person two times in a row) Yes, but it is all up to you; I'm sure they'd appreciate no matter how many rep you give them. ^_^P.S. You can only give one rep for giveaways.

    it's all in italics underline o3o

    You beat me to it, @Drizzy Yours is much more organized though

    I would really like to know how much rep you can give it per day? If there is a limit on how much full rep you can give? If there is a limit on how much you can give to a specific person per day?

    I was actually confused about this, because I know you can give rep in the GFX section, if somebody is making you something for free.
    So I thought that buying and repping might be allowed as well, then I got confused, because I know you're supposed to use iTrader if you buy something.
    I thought that the GFX section, might have different rules, but I see that, that's not the case.
    (don't worry though it wasn't for me, I WISH, I knew how to make art! )

    Also I do know that you are not allowed to buy rep and I know you aren't suppose to rep for giveaways and if you give more than 1 rep in givaways, it will just be taken away. However from everything I have seen and read, you are allowed to request art in the GFX section for rep.

    It varies from person to person
    Okay, well I have just seen people talking about it, how they rep the same person for the same thing several times, because they only have 1 or 2 rep power.
    If there are any rules about this, I would really like to know them!



    Thanks @Drizzy & @Dream for answering and if anybody else has something to add, then please do!
    I want to make a guide about repping, since I think it's very needed, so if anyone knows more rules or has anything else to add, please post it
    (Also I have already read most, if not all of the guides about rep and the one that was about when you should rep and when you should give thanks, so please don't just link to those)

    @Whispers, I just wanted to say that I'm glad you took the time to ask so many questions!

    There are a lot of new people joining these past few months, and I know a handful of them probably felt just as confused as you were!


    Glad @Drizzy and @Dream did an excellent job of clearing things up for you, too! <3


    We have such a great and helpful forum ;3;

    @Toasted thanks and yes I really love this forum, it's amazing!
    I already knew some the rules and etiquette's about repping from some other wonderful guides, but these the answers to these questions wasn't a part of them, so I thought I would ask.
