Just take it out.. And if not change it but then it would get too stupid and complicated when it would be unable to cheat it..

Btw admins should really check the rep stuff, as I know for sure 1 member has cheated the system with her friends.


About the removal of the rep system.. Comon if someone hes respect on a site it's reflected a bit in how ppl talk to him/her and such..

I don't think the Rep system is budging for the next few months. I don't wanna sound pissy Hyper, but did you read the bottom of my first post?

Guys: as far as I know, the Rep system isn't going anywhere, so don't bitch about how it isn't being used or isn't that important. Besides, it doesn't need to be used constantly; just a few times a week is ok. Just because you don't get any Rep doesn't mean that it's not being used.
Just deal with it - if we can publicize it more, then maybe it will be used more!
& if you think that you know the person who's screwing around with Rep, PM an admin

So, in a nutshell, what are y'all saying? To just totally get rid of both Rep Power and Points, just Power, just Points, etc etc.

If it were up to me, I'd probably go ahead and (if there was a way) make it so Rep Points were displayed under Rep Power (which I don't understand why they aren't now). Also, I would base it on the Points, not the Power. Points are a reflection on what the users think - Power is just what the computer tabulates...

Need some help/advice/support? Get me on AIM at LastTrainRunning. Try to be helpful as possible.

i think the rep power should defenitaly go becuase no EVER uses it(the little saying) and the points just kinda tells how long you have been on the site. if you look at it the more often you are on the site and the longer you have been on the higher the points. so i think that that can go too

Orchdork, I have to read your posts because this is my thread.

We'd have to get rid of the Rep system altogether if we wanted to get rid of one. It's a system - your Rep Power affects how much you can add/take away from someone's Rep Points. W/o Rep Power, your Rep Points can't change and w/o Rep Points, what is there a need for Rep Power?
Rep Points are probably kept private because some people have less than others. Some might feel bad about this. Those can only hope to improve.

Just because you don't gain Rep Points doesn't mean the system is at a standstill. You may use it barely...but it's still there. You might get some, you might give some. Best is to give when it feels right.

Rep Power is not JUST determined by how long you've been here. I have a Rep Power of 6 and 60+ Rep Points, and I've been here for 1 year and almost 2 months with 2,000+ posts.

I had a Rep Power of 4 when I had 40+ Rep Points and 1,500+ posts and been here for 1 year. When I reached 2,000 posts, I got 5 Rep Power. When I got 60+ Rep Points, I reached 6 Rep Power.

Nah, it's a member who outweighs my voice ;P so to speak, and admins could do their job for a change.. But I guess ''they'' might get a bit more time soon
