I think it would be a good thing in whole... but it would have its bad side. I think it would be cool though. Maybe keep AP and do not give AP when you rate a reputation.

There will be Armor Points (AP), but they will be for game achievements, not community involvement.

If User A continually gives a poor rating to User B, then User A's ratings will not be counted as much for User B. This will stop people from hating on other user's, and will stop friend's from giving high ratings to their friends as well.

They're going to have to implement some sort of notification system for this to actually work. If a user receives a lot of good or poor reputation in a day, they would pop up in the database. I imagine this being a hassle to monitor, but I don't have any other ideas.

There should be a notification system, as ghost said... Sort of like facebook.... The whole adding thing, just saying that they added you, you can't not accept... Maybe like Instagram on the Ipod/ phone , It says that they mentioned you in a comment... I saw a private chat option while I was beta testing the site... There should just be a chat system like facebook there as well... Saying that they're online, and then you can chat.... But they can go offline!

I don't see how that has anything to do with the reputation system. Here we are discussing comments and posts receiving +'s and -'s. There is a sticky thread for things regarding a chat system.

I think it is not a very good idea for the forums. (Just a note, I skimmed through the thread so correct me if I'm wrong)

If it is for a user (Not posts) then it will just be a way for users to anonymously insult someone without having to show their face.

If it is for posts, it could be useful though, possibly a good argument in the WEPR could be given reputation points or maybe a interesting thread or topic in the tavern could get reputation from users that like the thread.

However, if there is a restriction on how many you can give a day (Or even a week) I think the "+" and "-" system will work much better. Or even better, you can only say "+" and "-" each user/post once a day. That way you won't have people bombing the "-" button.

I can see this ending up like youtube, where it all depends on popularity rather than the actual content.

For the comments it would be great though. Someone wrote a merit worthy comment? "+" their comment and a moderator can see them.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Steal the rep system from vBulletin. Seriously, it works fine.

People are gonna +rep funny posts and there's nothing you can do about it.

I love that system, but I'm aware it's hard to program. It results in glitches easily.
