    >>4. If your reputation is less than 10, you automatically have a reputation power of 0.

    Well that's stupid...I only have 9 points because someone gave me negative for no real reason at all...

    The point of the repuation power is so you can't get screwed as easily. For example a person with a history of bad behaviour and thus a low rep shouldn't have the their ideas on other people's rep counted as heavily as a person who is basically the forum's saint. Also people like the admins should have more weight to their votes then regular members.

    I have reduced the reputation required to be able to give reputation to others to 5 rather than 10.

    I don't get why someone gave me a negative reputation for this post, but it's grey, so I think it means it didn't count. Woohoo!

    I frequent another forum that used the reputation feature for awhile. People started to think that because the sender didn't show up in the User CP that it was anonymous. It was quite funny when the administrator looked up several overboard ugly comments and called out (and banned) the people who made them.

    So don't get too cavalier about what you send, it can be found out.

    The other thing was, after that happened, the admin turned on the feature that shows who sent you the reputation, even those that had been sent before that time. All of a sudden that "anonymous" comment wasn't so anonymous any more. It was good fun.

    And finally, the reputation system ended up getting turned off. It wasn't a technical forum, so it might be more useful here, but people ended up competing to get better and better reputation, and nobody really paid attention to what was being talked about.

    Good times!

    I get points from C++ forum but then lose points even more points in GD forum. So when people in C++ forum see my low reputation, what would they think???
    I keep on losing points because someone who disagrees with me decides to take off my reputation points while those who disagree never bother to leave comment. People really have no clue why I have low reputation since they're not able to leave the comments
    Negative remark with no comment even more annoying.
    If I show you guys in what posts I lose reputation points, you'll see that you really, most of the time, can't take any conclusion out of people's reputation level.
    When I was still new in this board, it did not take me a long time who are reliable sources and and who aren't.
    As I'm typing this, I'm expecting people to take off my reputation points after reading it, because that's what's been happening to me. This is just so sad if no one could not see apparent flaws in this reputation-thing.
    I vote YES to turn off this feature. (Those who disagree with me, leave negative comment to *prove* that I'm right)

    am I the only one who doesn't look at other people's reputation?? is it that important? I mean, for people who have been here for sometime everybody knows their "real" reputation, so why would I bother checking??

    I surely know that govt will not "become famous in no time" as he is afraid of paparazzi and camera flashes. BTW cheez, WhereTF are the lion trailer pics?
