    My next suggestion is to enable you to get 10k REP visible in our posts.




    Sorry for using Thakiller as example.



    However, 10K neg power and 10K rep power would revolutionize the current Rune-Server reputation system to whole new level.
    And since user reps have nothing to do with the respect of rune-server, I think such an update would be useful.

    I remember the time rep power didn't have a cap, man rep power went up fast lol.

    I think 10k is a great limit
    Thanks, MrClassic.

    The reputation that is given or taken scales based on how much you have, based on that fact alone, this suggestion should not come into effect. If the cap remains behind the scenes but visually were unlimited, I'd support this change as 5000 reputation used to have a meaning, now every man and his dog acquired it.

    That's an option. I like this suggestion even more.

    Something I fear with the reputation cap being either removed or changed to 10k (which isn't entirely the case as reputation power scales rather than being equal to), is that the number removes its 'meaning'.

    Now don't get me wrong, I don't think reputation has a true meaning at all, after all, it's literally a number and I can't take some users (=morons) seriously when they try to argue based on someone's reputation on this forum.
    However, someone with max rep is already able to either boost or deduct rep of someone by a lot, and by increasing the gap you're going to create situations where that kind of person can literally megaboost or destroy someone else's reputation completely (which is already kinda happening right now), thus rendering reputation even more meaningless than it is already now.

    That being said, I [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that you value user stats quite a lot on this forum. Perhaps you should consider that the current system is fine for what it is right now, and that you shouldn't try to force a kind of image to such silly stats (just a honest tip ).

    No support from me.

    This however is something I can support, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for example has way more reputation than OP, but both are displayed at 5000 which may be a bit unfair.

    I'm wondering if the cap display was intentional or just vBulletin applying the cap to all visual displays of reputation?

    Negs are half of reps, so it would be 5k negs and 10k reps, as it is now 2.5k negs and 5k reps.

    But anyways, why do you want to double the reputation system? Since the last major reputation reform, there have only been [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to reach maxed out reputation levels, don't you feel like that's sort of an accomplishment? I feel the target is reached way too easily if everybody's reputation power is doubled.

    EDIT: If reputation powers were to be adjusted, we'd also need to scale the changes in reputation stars is basically what I'm saying. Perhaps reputation levels should have more "value" (arguably it's pointless and meaningless to begin with) since, like Spooky said, everyone and their dog has 5k now.

    These are just numbers. Why would you create a post for each of them? Nobody cares about the max reputation or ''thanks given'' to be honest.
