    Knight,

    The phrase above is in the OP, but it seems to be both inconsistent and inaccurate.

    Isn't the reality right now the following?

    Reputation Point Factor: 100
    For every 100 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

      Several of those values have since been changed.

      The new values are now posted.

            You've called me out of death
            You've called me into life
            And I was under Your wrath
            Now through the cross I'm reconciled

              I guess the rep power has been cut in half... is that correct? Mine was anyway.

                    In the near future we may need to revamp the rep system altogether.

                    The problem is..... that rep power and rep points have a multiplying effect on themselves and there comes a point when the rep power is so high that every rep awarded gives out a ridiculous amount of rep.

                    This produces two problems....

                    - The rep numbers get out of control so we need to constantly adjust them.
                    - New members feel hopelessly behind and tend to get frustrated. (imagine signing up on a forum and you get excited because you get a couple of reps but then you realize that there are those on the board that have almost a billion points! )

                    We have also found out that because the "chase for rep" is a popular hobby it actually can cause the TOL server to be overworked (it almost becomes similar to a "live chat").

                    I am still trying to figure out a good compromise.

                      Well as long as it's 'fair' then it's fine, it's not like anyone would notice if it wasn't really so fair enough!.......

                        Has anyone suggested that it wasn't fair?

                          What we would love is that people would use the rep for awarding good or bad posts but as YOU TWO know that just doesn't happen does it?

                              Someone has to make the rules and then let everyone know what they are

                                Well, if someone hadn't gotten upset because he/she got neg repped for a stupid post, we wouldn't have to worry about rules. Would we? The purpose of the neg rep is to let someone know that you don't like what they said in a particular post. What's wrong with that? Some people seem to want to do away with allowing people to neg rep if they don't like their posts.
                                They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. -- Isaiah 40:31
