I have noticed a fundemantal flaw in the rep system, mainly its to easy to amass rep simply by submitting lots of posts, I have noticed certain people have a habit of posting one or two line replies in threads that say very little and add nothing much to the discussion(names will not be supplied to avoid a flame war), but does add to the total of posts submitted which ups their rep power (unfairly in my opinion).
Now my argument is rep should be purely based on how the other members of the forum value your input/opinions/lists/advice etc and not just on how many posts you make, after all its called a reputation system and I dont think having a reputation for posting hundreds of 1 or 2 line posts is the reputation it was originally created to reflect.
So my submission is that the rep system should purely be based on the rep points given by other posters, this would make for a more balanced rep system and reflect the actual amount of valid input of the individual rather than just how many posts they have made.
What do you think.
You don't get rep by posting, people give it to you. Now you do get one rep power point every 250 posts. It just means the ammount of rep you can give away, not the amount you have.:yes:
I don't find anything really wrong with that.

Seems fair to me, I have only been a member a month and I have something like 370 odd posts (The lack of a job being the main reason), yet my rep power is 2. That seems entirely fair (especially since they re-factored the post count).
Rep power (your ability to give rep) is based on, as people said, the number iof posts you have made, but also the amount of time you have been with the site and your current rep total.
Rikimaru is correct, just putting up pointless posts (I agree) wil increase your number of posts and thereby, eventually rep power, but if you report such posts, and many users do, then the moderator will remove them, making the activity pointless, and potentially give warnings, which can result in the person being banned, since the minimum warnign that can be given for a single pos is 10% and you would have to put up 250 posts to get 1 point added to your rep power, you are far more likey to get banned than up your rep power
Everything you have been told is a lie!
The amount of posts does affect your rep power, take for instance someone who has nearly 4000 posts that equates to 15 rep points so the member has gained maybe 6 rep points from reputation given by other forum members, now 6 is good but the member can rip someones rep apart by simply neg repping simply because he has posted 4000 times, that is just not right.Originally Posted by Cheredanine
something tells me that someone who has managed 4000 posts, isn't the kind of person who would give neg rep for no reason. The mods afterall can still whittle the usefulness of those 4000 posts down to none if there is a decent reason for it, and Mods are ,by definition, impartial (or at least not preferential)

yes, I thought I had made it clear, a number of things add to your rep power, I will state them again in easier to read format:Originally Posted by rikimaru
Your current rep total
The time you have been a mamber
The number of posts you have made.
If someone rips you appart because of no reason - report him, we can deal with that.
If someone is posting null posts or meaningless one liners, report the post, it will get removed and he may well get a warning point. each warning comes with notes so if you report to me that a post is meaningless (commonly something like "I agree") then I will delete the post and give him a warning, but if he already hass warnings I will read the noteds, if they say that he has done this before, then clearly he is a persistant offender and I can take mroe severe action
If someone drops your rep for a genuine reason, then you really have no gripe, if they do it more than once then there are a couple of things, firstly they can not so a rep action against the same person twice in a row, secondly flag it and a moderator will consider if his activities are inappropriate
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Fair enough thanks for the quick reply.Originally Posted by Cheredanine
