eRep Point System Guide
Recently there has been some debate as to how the eBaums “rep point” system works. This is to be expected because of the rewards you can earn. If all eBaums did was work on points, but did not offer any loot, then people probably wouldn't make as big a deal out of it. But because there are those aiming for certain prizes there is a tentative amount of “point jealousy” that occurs.
It is just for that reason that some people have suggested that, somehow, the point system is unfair, biased, or that there are certain people who have “cracked the system” and can rack up more points than others. This belief comes from the fact that most people do not understand how the point system works, and hard set guide-lines of how much something is worth are not easy to find.
It is for that reason that I am here to clear up the confusion so that life on eBaums can go back to being the harmonious paradise it once was before all of this happened. Below are listings for the eRep point value system for all to enjoy.
