However, someone with like 3000 posts and 1000 rep would show that this member has a much higher quality of post, and is generally very helpful.

What do you guys rekon?
I think that math can be done in your head well enough. Also, there is plenty of commenting done that many times doesn't deserve rep, but serves to further the conversation or perhaps is a question.

I reckon that a book should never be judged by its cover.

However, I think you solved this one already because as you said: if so choose to judge somebody that way and you see that they have 3000 posts and 1000 rep, then that will tell you whatever you're looking to find out. Or, if you see that they have 3000 posts and only 10 rep points, then there again it's clear. Or, if they have 5000 posts and 4500 rep points, it's clear again.

But even so, nobody here can be judged like that. I see the rep system as something that's more for fun than anything else. A better way to judge somebody is by the post they make: if they can help you, answer all of your questions, and then also prove/qualify their information all in the same post, then you know you have a winner. But if you have somebody who just has a really short answer where they don't explain why they're giving you that answer, then perhaps they don't know what they're talking about yet.

Or there are cases where the person has like 5000 rep points, and they give one of those short answers. I would say that in those circumstances, it is probably safe to let their rep count do all the talking.

But again (and just in general), it's not fair to really judge somebody by their rep count. I mean come on: you know you can usually tell when somebody knows what they're talking about.

Also, the post/rep is not totally acturate. Posts in the off topic section don't count towards your total post count. I saw a member a few weeks ago with like 100 rep and 10 posts.

But the only way to get Reps in Off-Topic is to get them from people who know the trick to give Rep without the Rep+ button.

I use the ratio as a gauge of quality sometimes, but 95% of the time people helped don't rep so its relevance is hit or miss.

I primarily judge the character of content

REP or Post count should not be taken as seriously as that. REP count can point ot those members who have positively contributed to OCN, however that does not by any means make them any better than any other member on OCN. You also need to take into account the amount of time a specific member has been here on OCN.

Post count is the same. It should not be used to judge a member. Take myself for example. I have a fair few posts. Does this immediately make me a spamming/negative influence on OCN ? Or should a members lower post count be used to judge them as un-helpful?

A Rep/Post Ratio counter IMO, is discriminative and OCN is not about openly discriminating members like that.

Alls I know is I been on overclock on and off for the last 4 years and have tryed to help people out as much as possible and relay as much gathered info on computer related issues as I can. And for the life of me I haven't been able to get a reps for 2 years.

Just saying is it is getting annoying to help people and use time out of my day to help new members that simply don't have the time or just don't rep people.

Just saying!!!
post #249 of 571
I respect the system but it does frustrate me. Been a member for 6months now and I post a few times a day often contributing but I find people rarely Rep, even when you have been directly helpful. I can live with that but what really frustrates me is that I can't use the trading forums until I reach a certain Rep level (30+ IIRC). I dare say its like many things in life, the rich get richer ! Anyway, as I said I respect the system and I think its key to any online community.

You might be trying too hard to get Rep out of people.

Take me for example: when I help somebody, I don't care about getting anything in return; in fact, I almost hope to receive nothing in return. The end result is that it causes me to help in such a way that makes people have a very strong desire to give me something in return.

The secret is to help while expecting nothing in return; or, perhaps while hoping for nothing in return.

The minute you guys expect something in return is the minute you significantly decrease your chance of getting something in return. It has a negative affect on the way you help.
