    Since the OLCers are gone and rep doesn't matter anymore because we have ratings (and it's also not fun without the User CP), at least let me have the pleasure to give -10k negs to deserving noobs.

    Or at the very least, make the distribution of influence given from rep points/posts/join date more equitable than it is now because it's appalling :scoobysus

    Rep-to-Reppower: 1 reppower per 12k rep
    Post-to-Reppower: 1 reppower per 25 post:
    Join-to-Repower: 1 reppower per 1 day

    From what was previously: 1 per 1k rep, 1 per 100 and 1000 posts, and 1 per 5 days.

    This doesn't look in the least bit drastic to you? I get the intention was to curb inflation, but the solution created a glaring flaw in which one of the metrics is virtually a non-factor in comparison to the other two, there's almost no reason for it to be measured in the calculations. I suggest the following:

    Rep-to-Reppower: 1 reppower per 2k rep
    Post-to-Reppower: 1 reppower per 100 and 1000 posts
    Join-to-Repower: 1 reppower per 7 days

    No need to thank me.

    It was probably too much, especially considering its relation to rep inflation. It essentially squares the effect it has on repflation. Increasing the amount of rep needed for rep power from 1k to 12k didn't cut down repflation by 12 times, it was cut down by 144 times. Its the only issue I have with the current model, maybe a join date nerf to a small degree.

    is there any way we could get images to work in rep again?
    like 60% of the systems charm is now gone albeit simple text now means more but the trade, as stated, is uneven.

    @Dream will the effects of this change be permanent or are you trolling and everything (including the rep gained/lost during this) be reverted back ? :hm
