    I got two negative reputations for asking about more information on the whole reputation thing... and another for saying I didn't really care what happens to the DOS board...

    I'll probably get another negative one for 'complaining' about the system...

    The final few limitations on reputation are intended to prevent people from running up their reputation:
    1. Users must have several posts before they can give reputation.
    2. You may only give out 10 reportation votes per day.
    3. You must give reputation to at least 20 people before you can give it to the same person twice.
    Concerning point 3
    Say I post a problem in C++ forum and person A is of helpful that I decides to give reputation to that person.
    Another time I post another problem and the same person A comes to my rescue. I decides to give reputation, BUT it's not *allowed* (see above quote). Why do I have to give reputation to some other people when I think only person A deserves one??
    Just FYI that this is really happening that I only receive answers from at most 10 same people. (You know who they are)
    Does the limitation above force me to read other forums (GD etc) and start giving away reputation??
    My point is, one these days there will be one thousand and one reasons to disable this reputation feature on this board

    this is a good point... I also think that the reputation system should be geared more toward positive reputation, and the amount of negative reputation you can give should be equal to the positive reputation you gave to that person + your (modified) reputation power...

    you should definately keep a lower limit, but maybe make in 10 or 15 instead of 20...
