    OK I'm relatively new here and I have, since joining, not been into reputation. I prefer thanking posters for thoughtful ideas.
    I have repped 9 people, one negatively, more for a pattern of well thought out, cogent posts than for individual instances.
    My problem is, it seems that I can not rep a person a second time. I get a message that I must spread rep around before repping a certain person again. What are the rules on this? I may have to go on a thanking binge soon if I can't resolve this.

    I believe you get 10 reps a day? And must rep 8 people before you can re rep someone. Keeps changing.

    It's unlikely that I'd rep 10 times in one day. I don't like you people that much. I have given 8 positive reps but can not rep one particular person a second time. I guess I need to find a couple folks to heap praise on.

    When you rep someone you have to rep ten others before you can rep that person again.
