    The most abused thing on the forum...

    Reputation, friends give friends rep for no reason, people ask for rep for doing nothing. Half the people who have the top rep are people who are constantly asking for rep and even go as far as having " me" in their signature. Reputation is something that should be earned, not begged for.

    I just started here and haven't seen people begging for but I can see where this is coming from. I agree 100% with you, I know some people choose how much they can trust people by how much rep they have.

    The Pope, the judging by rep in some sense is fair, but I understand where you come from. Because when you get higher rep power, or at least for me, I try to not rep noobs who just want rep and think it is so important...

    I think that it should be more strictly against the rules to ask for rep, infractionable maybe, and the only thing displayed should be your rep power, not rep, but make sure people still rep eachother for good shares, because I think rep power is a decent way to judge someone's worth on the forum.

    Alternatively, WHEN there is the new credit's reset, (which there is going to be one right? After we wasted our credits on the magically disappearing shop) there should also be a do away with rep, and for each point of rep that person had, they get that many credits instead (or a different ratio, like 1 rep 2 creds, idk) and then remove the ability to rep people, and instead it would be if you like someone's share then you give then credits.

    These are only suggestions, I don't know...

    Not singling anyone out just showing examples. I think that reputation guidelines should be set.

    yeah, ive gotten rep war ones as well, along with, "cause its my birthday" "needed to spread rep around" "lets go to 300" and more

    system is abused massively but it takes a lot of work to moderate.

    That's why it's just rep who cares about it later on you realize it doesn't matter.
