    I'm thinking that if I were you, doing anything about the rep icon would be written on the back of a napkin and placed in the circular file - either that, or find a wealthy and eccentric patron to finance the staff you so deserve!

OT has so much in the posts and photos that just keeping up and responding when appropriate takes a lot of time and effort - I personally often forget to do a rep for someone - my evaluation of their post is really in my response. I don't know how you manage to keep up with all of this AND teach AND actually grow orchids AND all the other things you do - unless sleeping is optional, but I find that between working with my plants, staying active on the forum, and trying to lead the rest of my life is requiring a lot of organizational skills and energy I haven't used in awhile. Maybe I'll be better at this in 6 weeks, when this whole chemo thing is over with.

    I don't mean any of this as a negative or critical comment on the OT system - just trying to give you some feedback that might apply to others as well, and thus might prove helpful somehow.

    Always -

    I find that rep isnt given as much as it should be in some respects, i try to give whenever i can. But i too think that perhaps the like button could be a thumbs-up icon and the reputation icon turned to a word? Sounds like a good idea Thumbs-up icons are always associated with good work anyway, but it took me a while to find the rep button lol

    Thanks for all the hard work tho Bruce, and how can we forget the work LJA does too!?

    Hi BD

    Thanks for the info on 'Reputation', as a newbie I saw it but did not know what it was about. LOL did not even know that I received some myself!!!
    Until I saw what your average day involves I thought I had a hectic schedule now I know that I am just breezing along.
    Keep up the good work.
    Best Wishes
    Angela

    The Answer: Visit your 'Settings' page by clicking the 'Settings' link in the far-up-right corner of every forum page (above the OrchidTalk logo at the top of the page and to the right.) There you can see your reputation comments and who gave them to you. AND - only you can see your reputation comments on your settings page. Other members can only see your profile page.

    cheers,
    BD
    So I know i have reputation, but for the life of me I have searched high and low and do not see where the comments, etc. are, I have asked other friends on this site, they did not see it either...maybe I am being very thick....maybe I need a screen shot

    As I said " You are the only person who can see your rep comments." It is likely that you have reputation from just participating and no one has actually left any comments. If that is the case, you will not see any comments. Here is a screen shot from my profile to show you what it looks like....
