    Not sure what the difference is between these two features.
    If you can just make a rule that places an object on every surface that matches a given parameter, why use a repeater?

    Hello @AnotherBloodyUsername

    Its the same thing, but achieved with different workflows, Rules are more intuitive and underneath they use proxy replicators to achieve the same thing.

    Its a matter of preference, I personally prefer to use Replicators, but others might prefer the rules workflow :)

    Hope this makes things more clear

    It does. Thanks.
    If I may suggest, the Docs need a more plain-language high-view introduction to the topics.
    There's a lot that can be FAQ'd.
