I think we can all see the rep system didn't work out. It was a good idea from the start, to reward our valuable forumers. howverver it soon after spiraled out of control. Due to the fact that its is easily abused, and that many of the most useful forumers don't get the credit the deserve, I think it is time to support the "Down with the Rep" movement. It is not a reliable source to show well, who's reliable. Please send a messege to the devs and ask them politely to remove the feature.
On another note what should be put in place of the rep system, if anything. I think we could stll have a thanks button, but only the recipient and sender could tell if one was given. that would allow us to still express gratitude for a post. or we could do what we did before and say, "+1 mate, great post!"
If you have any ideas please add them and join the movement!
