    Increasing jBirch's reputation

    I just wanted to see if this would work.

    Push the little checkbox there

    <------------------------ (Looks like this: <img src="http://www.fencing101.com/vb/images/buttons/reputation.gif">)

    next to my name and tell me how great I am.

    I thought only you guys could TAKE rep, but that everyone could give it.

    Holy Crap!

    Fencers are inherently nice, trusting people. I picked up 30 points from this thread and I didn't have to bribe anyone! Woohoo! Started it on a lark and it seems to have taken on a life of its own. Anyone want to see if I can break 100?? *grin*

    Thanks to everyone who voted (and it lets you vote for other, better people faster too) and encouragement to anyone else looking to experiment with the reputation button.

    Take it easy.

    You could have doubled that by adding the phrase "sabre is cool", or "epee chicks are hot", or "foil is the only true form of fencing".

    Try those

    I hear your reputation increases if you remember to post positive approvals back to the people who respond to your pleas!!!

    Oh and:

    Sabre is cool
    Epee chicks are hot
    Foil is the only true form of fencing

    What I want to know is how much of a bounce did you get for posting "sabre is cool," "epee...", etc.



    MR
    Why sabre? Because you don't take heads with the point.

    I wonder if a challenge to the Saber/Epee/Foilists to see which group could rack up the most votes for best on your reputation would give you the results you seek?

    Vote positive approval for the "Best" of your choice!!

    Alright then:

    An open challenge to all sabre/foil/epee practitioners out there:

    vote for your weapon and increase my rep!

    Karma will, of course, be returned with interest. *grin*

    I cannot "vote" for foil as of yet as the software that runs that function tells me I need to spread reputation around a bit before giving you some more. Personally I think the whole rep points thing is silly, but I did admire your straightforward approach.

    I'm violating the promise I made to myself when I first saw this thread... I told myself I wouldn't respond or add rep...

    Not gonna add rep... but yes... this is a response...

    I just had to second (third, or whatever it is now) that Epee chicks are indeed hot...

    back to your regularly scheduled programming....

    And I thought karma whoring was just for /. (how do you end a sentence with /.? Looks stupid if you go "/.." and if you don't.... Ah the joys of punctuation when referring to things named with punctuation marks.).
