    I activated the user reputation system for a trial run. There is a little star in the lower left corner of every post. This is a test run! Your feedback ans suggestion are welcome!

    You can give ten points away a day.
    You get ten points for registering.
    Every ninety days you get a point.
    Every 100 posts you get a point.
    You must have 50 posts before your reputation counts towards other members and a minimum of ten points.
    You must give twenty points out before you can give the same user another reputation point.
    For every 100 points you get, you gain 1 point of reputation altering power.

    I don't see little stars under anything.

    My suggestion, though, if not already done is to actually make people accountable for the rep/comments they leave. We're presumably all adults and IMO if someone feels their rep/comment is important enough to leave, positive or negative, other adults should be ok with owning their own words/opinions.

    I would suggest people NOT earn rep for number of posts. Someone who posts drivel in lots of threads (you know...like only ever contributing to comment in one word or one sentence posts like "Cute dog!" or what have you) but don't ever post anything actually meaningful or helpful would end up with a higher reputation than someone who only comments when they actually have something constructive to offer.

    This EXACT topic came up in the last forum I was on that had been using a similar system based on numbers of posts for some time. It turned out noobs were more likely to listen to the (misguided) advice of relatively useless members (who knew nothing about the subject but never failed to post inane comments on every thread) over long time experienced members who didn't post as frequently, but actually had the knowledge to contribute and help people because of the higher reputation indicator that person had.

    I agree with this. Points should be given for quality of comments, not quantity... although, I'm not sure how you would measure or keep track of that, which is one reason I'm honestly not all for the whole reputation system.

    I have 2 thoughts right now:

    1- Off-topic posts in sections such as Chit Chat, etc. should be excluded from being able to be repped.

    2- We should be able to see who reps who. Not for the purpose of returning rep (which I see happen a lot on other forums that use the rep system) but for personal curiosity.

    If we could do something based on people "liking" someone's post...I don't now if that's possible...but instead of limiting how many rep points someone could give (however that works) if someone sees a post they think is a really good post, they can click some button on said post (maybe that's what the stars you're talking about are for) and people would gain rep based on how many of their posts are "liked" by how many people.
