I'm not trolling. I just got curious about the rep system so went reading. Anywho, I know another game whose forums have a system where you can only rep/derep a member once, then you are not allowed rep/derep that member until you've done so to a number of other members. I wasn't ever bothered enough to find the "right" amount of people before you could rep/derep someone else, but it seemed a good system for keeping the kind of problems mentioned in the last posts from happening. Could still happen, but screwing with one person's rep is one thing, screwing with half the forum's rep to screw with one person's rep usually seems going slightly too far.

If its still an issue, I can have a gander around and ask one of the forum mods I know over there. Otherwise, I deeply regret reviving what should be a properly dead topic.

I would prefer to see it be once per person, period.

The negative rep is supposed to make things easier to read, I'm thinking about the /. karma system here.

But we already have a "report to moderator" link, so I think that's really all we need. I think we'll be fine without a reputation system. Unless someone can name an actual purpose of having one, I think we're fine.

A playground for the pettier and more vindictive side of my nature?
