Rep - some oddities?

Can anyone explain the oddities of giving rep?

 

I wanted to give BigfootMSR some rep for his work on his training vids.. http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=84612

 

The opening post gave me a message saying "rep cannot be given to this post" or words to that effect.

 

I then tried giving rep to his post #7 on that thread.. and got the same message.

 

I then tried giving rep to his post #136 in the same thread and it worked. WTF!

 

What is going on, it seems the more deserving the post the less likely you can rep them for it. This seems the case for sticky posts.

 

Can this behaviour be altered? maybe its some sort of anti rep fixing feature.. but it sucks as it presently works..

Depends on where the post in question was originally posted: some sections have repping disabled. If the post is then moved (or merged into a thread) in a section with different rules, the system does for some reason not change the "rep-ability" of that post. vBulletin system limitation.

Posts over a certain age cannot be repped. I think it is about a month, perhaps less.

Arrr that would explain a lot. Cheers.

 

Odd behaviour for the system.. if it deserves rep age should not matter. At least that is what i tell the wife.
