Personally I'm still partial to karma but between honor or rep I'll take honor any day; if the theme of AG3 will still deal with the middle ages I think it fits better anyway.

What about energy? because you get more energy points and become more powerful and respected. (I prefer honor or reputation mine was just an option)

When I think of energy, I think more of vitality or hit points..

I think that it would be much better for everyone to have a number of Yin Yang points on their profile; Yin being positive points towards you, and yang being negative points towards you. Your overall points would add up to a title which describes whether you are a grumpy old troll who lives under Knights umbrella or some flawless anti spammer.
If you dont like that idea, how about justification points?

Someone already suggested Pride and prejudiced this was cormyn's repsonse.

I see what you did there. Ideally, we want a single word, and we don't really want to give users a reason to *want* to make their karma negative, like an alignment system where someone *wants* to be "chaotic evil."

I have to agree with corymn on that. It would be cool to have the different names for negative and positive pts, but then it would give people a reason to be negative and troll and what not.

But there would also be cons to being a troll like every time you post you must wait a longer portion of time. So nobody would want to be a troll, and it would just specify who those people are. >:)

Hey folks, we may just call it "reputation" for the launch, and rename it later. We're looking at some internationalization and translating down the road, so whatever terms we use for points/karma need to be able to translate easily.

We'll discuss this some more down the road.

Oh! You're making AG3 multilingual? Probably can't do the community aspect, but everything else would seem doable! The only thing that wouldn't work in my opinion would be what's typed out from other people. Otherwise, everything else would work :)

"Ry" sounds stupid > >; Of course, I guess it will never become that multilingual.

Its not multilingual without the Uranian language, or the Uranian flag...
