yes I agree with ^this comment
I think mods should do a test trial where we go without the repping system for a few days and see what people think without it there
its worth a try I mean.

It's been stated by our administrator that the system is being removed - why is there still back and forth about it?

Right here.

Because this is not some autocratic place where what ronnie says goes.... it is his job to act in the users best interests, and hence listen to them. the removal of the reputation system was miscalculated, in my view. We will see a less dynamic and personal community.

And I think we will see a few less attention whores with their fan clubs... Or they will be less noticeable.

The entire rep thing was skewed since the beginning. Immedieately people started rotating positive rep with a group of friends and people started complaining about that or their negative reps making unnecessary workload for the VT staff.

If rep is personality then I woud gladly be a Dbag.

People giving advice should do it out of their good will, which they did years before prior to rep and I am sure will keep doing for years to come.

People had diaries, made friends, chatted and so on before rep and will after it.

For me someone messaging me and saying thanks for helping me outweighs 10 000 rep points any day.

I'm tough, rough, ready and able
To pick myself up from under this table
Don't stick no sign on me, I got no label
I'm a little sick, unsure, unsound and unstable

But I'm fighting my way back

This allows you to thank somebody for a helpful reply and allows you to also like good posts and positively show that you agree with it, support it, etc. There is one that meets all of those specifications.
I thank the admins for getting rid of it. As others have said, it's just a way to boost your epeen, ego, or whatever else you think needs fed.

I have seen a system where users can only affect by one, mods by five, global mods by ten, and admins by twenty. Even if that was here, plus making people click through to the profile page probably wouldn't have worked.

I have also seen a system where you can "like" each post individually, similar to our old rep system, but at the bottom of the post, it says "User 1", "User A", "User 2", and "JimE" like this post. You get a number on your profile which equates to the number of likes, but no green dots.

As far as disabiling rep, that only goes so far. AFAIK, mine was disabled, but I could still see the comments (good and bad). IMO, if rep truly was disabled, you would have to be out of the rep game. No one could leave you rep...but, to make it fair, I don't think you should be able to give it, either. I mean, why should I disable it so that they can't leave me rep, but then go around leaving "you stink" messages on posts I don't believe in.

With all that said, and I realize I'm repeating myself here, I do thank the bosses for getting rid of the old system.

I'd rep them if I could. (Insert smiley here.)
