Yes. You should be worried. If you do not attain 49 reputation points by sundown, your account will explode.

I think I got my first 100 rep after like 1.3k posts.

I just semi recently obtained 100 rep (ok, so maybe like 6 months ago), but that was after around 800 posts. A lot of reputation has to do with where you post. If you post in the WE Help Zone and your advice works, people will likely give you +rep. If you post something in the video clips section that people find interesting or that sort of thing, you are likely to obtain more rep. People typically don't receive much rep for posting pictures in the Funny Picture Thread, but I do it anyway :D . There you have it.

Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face.
I have >700 posts but only 30 Reputation Points.
Should I be worried?

lol silly question, but yeah :/
I went over the first few pages of your posts and they seem helpful. Maybe you should put an avatar - that will make it psychological. When people read your replies they will see a human face and their brains will feel more like in real life dialogue. And since people are more thankful to other people than to passive pieces of text, e.g. Wikipedia, your avatar above your post could possibly influence them subconsciously to give rep to your advices. The lack of an avatar with a human face possibly makes your posts look like quotes from anonymous guides rather than bits of dialogue (and people don't care about rewarding those much).

Avatars are always a good idea, but I managed to get 500 rep without one, so clearly they are not essential. The one thing avatars do do is make your presence aware to staff members. This is usually a good thing, as staff and users will remember your helpfulness in the future and give you help/rep in return. For example, I got a +rep from someone (not going to name names) not because they liked my posts (see my Funny Picture Thread posts), but they liked that I was making the thread active and trying to get others to join in. Also, I breathed life into the FPT, but because of jobs and school, I have forced to be less actively posting pictures and other content.

lol.

Okay thanks all. Will look into adding an avatar soon.
@Ioannes You said that I should add a real avatar, but I see like none here on TH. Curious as to showing who I am to people I do not now is really necessary. Regardlessly I have taken your advice into consideration. Thank you

Thanks for reasurrance.

But I suppose rep shouldn't really be a big deal but when you see users with >1000, it can be conserning haha

Disable rep, in my opinion. Just makes people get e-egos and half-ass posts just to get higher post/rep counts. :p

People get different rep at different rates. My rep used to be higher than my post count, but that's when I actually helped people.

I'm sure you even got sympathy rep from this thread lol.

>Disable rep, in my opinion.

Pretty sure only admins can do that. Phyrex is original :p

You can change this now in User CP.
Semi-subtle 'rep me pl0x' thread.

And don't worry, the people that really matter on this forum don't care about rep!

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
  • Varine Varine:
    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore

    keep your fingers away from that, it's a ponzi scheme. Early birds get rich everyone else pays for it
  • jonas jonas:
    I've thought about shorting the stock but you never know how far the price can rise, I think at the latest in march the price will collapse
  • jonas jonas:
    that's when the insiders are allowed to sell and get rich thanks to the small time investors
