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.

I would think honor would be a good name. Rep is just overused everywhere. Almost every forum/game I go to there's always a reap system.

Honor all the way.

Honer sounds too... formal. Notoriety sounds cooler.

I would assume honor translates remotely well although I don't know enough about language to make that determination; and it should sound formal AG's growing up; and notoriety makes it sound like you did something bad :P

Well, from a few minutes with a translator it would seem honor translates almost literally to Chinese, Japanese, German, Russian, and all the Romance languages. Seems fairly international.

You can't do notoriety. The word basically refers to ill or unfavourable fame. Having a high "notoriety level" would probably indicate horrible behaviour. I don't understand why we should have such a system when good actions will build up a negative score.

Honour. Prestige. Reputation. My three choices.

I would say that notoriety is not a bad thing going of the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition. (Although the phrase: "They are notorious for {insert bad thing here}." is used often.)

Not too fussed about the name itself, but I think I saw chivalry somewhere in this thread and that sounds pretty cool and fits in with the theme too, so I'd go with that

OR...disrepute, ill-repute, shame, infamy

Being notorious is not something you want. questionable, opprobrious
scandalous,flagrant,infamous...if you wanna be these things, go right ahead. Being notorious means "widely and unfavorably known".

Besides. The team is sticking with honor until such and such with translating happens.
