    My Rant about the reputation system

    There is a major flaw with the reputation system.

    It is being used this way:

    Guy1 reps Guy2 on a random post with no value and pm's Guy2 to rep him back. Guy2 reps him back, etc.

    I think reputation should only be given for useful posts that contain either guides, useful advice or programs. It is unfair for people who legitimately work to earn reputation are getting beaten by those who just abuse it.

    The "Rep this person and you might get rep back" motto is simply illogic.

    This is something I saw on somebody's profile you will probably find out who it is in no time though:



    Anonymous:
    Well.. just make sure you rep me 3x for the 1x you rep them

    Anonymous:
    Lol thanks
    BUT YOU DONT GOTTA STOP REPINGZORING ME ;]
    i need to get my ass to contributer before dog and hallow xD
    Which is a clear example of the issue I'm talking about.

    I know I'm not the only one who agrees with this.

    Don't joke with stuff like that, otherwise you'll just get infracted. It's hard to judge whether you are joking or not
