    Yeah, I know how you feel. I'm disabling it, the whole rep thing sounds a little annoying.

    there's no way to do that. you can either see all of it or none of it. in addition, looking through the old comments when i had to fix everyone's, positive rep leads to rep trading pretty quickly. you shouldn't get positive rep just for giving it to someone else, you should get it for making good posts or being helpful or other good things.

    Deoxysdude94: unfortunately, there is no way for you to turn off rep at all, you can only turn off your rep level from being visible to other users. You'll still get rep from users, so you'll just have to ignore it.

    I just noticed that you have to rep 40 people before you can rep the same person again. Isn't 40 a bit much? I don't think I even see 40 people on these forums in a day.

    Oh sweet, another thing to be judged by apart from post count.
    But I guess this could be cool, too.

    the reason for it is to prevent people from spamming the same person with rep. when we had a user poll before on if theyd want rep quite a few people wanted to only rep the same person once, ever, to prevent the abuses. that's not possible, but the point is to get people to spread rep around. the point of rep is not to boost up people you like a ton, it's to give good/bad feedback on people you see posting so everyone can get that feedback. having a large limit inbetween repping the same user may encourage people to go around and rep new people who they maybe wouldnt have before.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Well, it's to prevent abuse. Again, Ellie will adjust it accordingly if she sees fit once the trial period is over. Also, you're not supposed to rep the same people you see/talk to everyday, there are several posts around the forum that make good or bad posts, so just rep away.

    edit: beat.

    That could depend on where you post. The X and Y Discussions for example has a lot of different members including myself posting there almost everyday and the Fan-fic section is also a place that looks to be a source for many reps due to the many authors in that subforum.

    Yeah, there's so many uses for rep, so soon enough you'll be hitting the 40 mark.

    Like someone's fic? Rep. Someone made a good trade with you in the forums? Rep. Someone was being really helpful to you? Rep. Etc, etc. you'll use them up soon enough.

    From the sound of it, the goal is to [hopefully] add incentive to not be annoying to other users, in return potentially reducing spam and boosting the overall quality of discussions. If people catch on, that is. Assuming people don't abuse this, I can see a lot of good coming out of this.

    Yeah, the 40 in-between thing is a good idea. My first worry when I saw this announcement was how easily it could be abused; not only could someone constantly boost the reputation of their friends and vice-versa (I scratch your back, you scratch mine), but someone could also harass users they don't like by lowering their reputation every time they got the chance. The 40 limit should help that.

    A simple "Like" button would have been nice, though...

    That involves a hack, and you being a former member of staff know that Joe hates those.

    I disagree with the "like" assertion, Jesusfreak. I will agree, that a "like" is nice from the perspective of a simple way to upvote things you like on the site. However, as with Facebook I find that most "like" systems simply end up being a form of acknowledgement, as opposed to a way to meaningfully evaluate the content of what was liked. People see a friend's post, or just something they like in general and may click "like" without fully reading the thoughts.

    A "like" or "dislike" system could be useful sparringly in tandem with the rep, but I genuinely think that this model is well thought out and will benefit the site after it is tested and possibly refined (where testing reveals issue)

    Rep is always a mess on other forums. I hope it is good for this one.

    This will end well. And when I say end, I mean sooner rather than later. People already spam to increase post count.

    Wow, that's a blast from the past. I'm actually pretty optimistic that it'll work out this time.

    I've seen the allkpop.com system on reputation, and I can say that the rules and regulations on this returning feature are better and more secure than those of AKP.

    Good job you guys!

    I didn't notice this until now, but I probably won't be using it.

    Hmmm... it's interesting, but I guess I'll turn it off. Some people are quite sensitive to what some people say.
    I'm going to stay with it for a day/week or so, see how it goes, then if bad, turn if off.

    EDIT:I just read the rules... I should lose that habit :P
