    OK i was going to bump jayjay's thread but since all threads in this section are locked i wasn't able to do that. Kinda fucks the point of discussing stuff at a later date so gotta make a new thread. This has been brought up numerous times already but i didnt understand until i became a member myself. As a member i can see that the rep limit of 9 a day is way to low. I tend to rep people more then i use ratings because its what im used to doing. That dont leave you much room to rep posts a day. I find so many people i want a rep but after a few reps im done for the day. I think if it could possibly maybe discussed to at least changing the limit to 15 at least. If it was 15 at least that would give people a better chance at repping more posts that they feel deserve it. I mean tbh i really don't see what harm it would cause.

    Increasing the rep limit sounds like a good idea

    Yeah because as staff you dont know how low 9 really is. I see so many posts i wanna rep and i literally can't. At least 15 would give a little more leeway.

    I think the maximum should be either 15 to 20 reps a day. Maybe even factoring neg reps into that. 20 positive reps a day or 10 neg reps a day, that way its also easy to prevent spamming neg reps against someone.

    This isn't possible. They can edit how rep is calculated, how many times in a 24hr period someone can rep and how many times someone has to spread before they can rep the same user.

    I vote set both the # in a 24hr period and the # of spread to 0. Rep is meaning less, the only abuse is neg abuse. That is all that needs to be policed. Rep whoring should be ignore, rep circles should be ignored. Only negs need to be looked at.

    0 means unlimited.

    Their control panel doesn't have an option to do that.

    Like I said above, they can effect how rep is calculated (by three means, # of rep, # of days on the forum and I think # posts), how many times someone can rep in a 24hr period and how many people they need to spread to rep the same user. Thats it. No other functionality exists.

    Truly if they are still worried about rep circles. Set the number of reps to unlimited and the spread to like 25. Make them work for it.

    best way of preventing rep circles is having the spread limit equal to or higher than the number of reps per day

    however I think rep is probably most fun when the spread limit is lower

    I want staff to post here and actually seriously discuss this not post here and make it as some joke. If its not going to be taken seriously by staff then just lock the thread no sense in discussing it further.

    So 20 reps a day, 20 spreading it back. The math checks out. Like I said in the global rules discussion thread not that long ago, we know most of the Staff doesn't care about positive or negative rep for spreading as long as posters aren't blatantly negging someone 50 times a month or breaking other site rules with images or whatever in their rep messages.

    I don't see how pushing the limit to 20 reps a day or higher is a big deal.

    In favor because it could help to drive up activity. This monthly release of Nardo content is killing me [actuallystillreads][/actuallystillreads]

    I'm all for increasing the daily amount of reps you can hand out

    But definitely not increasing the amount of spreading you need to do to 15/20/25, that'd be a fucking pain. 15 reps / day seems fair, so make the amount of spreads 8 (I guess?) so you can only hit the same person twice a day max (pretty much like it is now).
