    I know I don't post a lot on the forum, but I have found the information and people on here to be extremely helpful. I was able to figure out pretty quickly who knows what they are talking about without knowing much about them. I don't feel that a rep system will do anything to benefit the forum. I also don't think a rep system would make me value someone's opinion over another (i like to gather a lot of info). But, I could see some people not taking someone's post as seriously as another just because they are newer. I do, however, like the idea of a like button or something along those lines. I know I am guilty of posting (especially in the picture section) a two word response which could be eliminated with a like button.

    Honestly, I do not like the "like" system that everyone is talking about.

    My reason for that is because a list of usernames that like a specific post are displayed under each post. That defeats the purpose of being useful as a whole.

    The reputation system has a wonderful theory behind it combining all posts that the member has made. However it is flawed in the respect of cliques and friends who give reputation to members in which they like. However, there are tweaks to detour those types of behaviors.

    In closing, I'm not a very big fan of the reputation system, but as was said, this it simply a trial run. :)
