I like the new system but since random number rep is awarded to specific member, it no longer holds any kind of value.

Well.. I think once anyone understands how the Rep System really works and how Reps are actually earned...given and taken... they will see the System is quite useful..
Especially since c0ldshadow enabled us to see the Rep Comments for the reps given...

You can get an idea of the basic workings of the Rep System here...

it's not random.
Each person has a rep power. The more rep you get the more your rep power goes up. My rep power is 16 so when I give you rep, you get 16 points. Someone with a rep power of 2 will only give 2 points.

it's a thing that those that have been here a while and earned the higher reputation points are supposed to be a better judge of character so their rep weighs more than someone with a rep power of 2

i have been randomly giving ppl rep that clearly deserve it b/c of dedication to site, helping others, donating, general help, etc, that is why some ppl might have really high numbers

if anyone disagrees about a specific decision plz email me

It's good now that you can read comments... I can only see a few of the last comments though??

Is this normal? Or can you guys read all comments?

no you can only read the last 5 or so comments. It would be better if you could see ALL feedback.

I just checked some of the member's feedbacks and it looks like the last 10
Reps show up on the profile "reputation" link...

Yeah... would be good to see them all...

I agree.. i think its important to see a persons -rep & the reasons behind it


most of the +reps i have seen were just about being a funny member of the forums while the -reps were given over bad sales.

Indeed.

-rep is definitely much more important to be able to review than +.

Just the fact of the +rep being there is information enough (since +rep tends not to adhere to strict guidelines), while -rep (almost) always has a significant reason behind it.

Negative comments should always be viewable so long as the user has -rep on their record. E.G.: Say a user puts an item up for sale and gets -rep from the transaction because he misrepresented the item and refused to work out a solution with the buyer. Now, say that person stops selling for a while, racks up 10 +rep comments for making a few jokes in off-topic threads, and goes back to selling. Any potential buyers would be none the wiser regarding this member's poor performance before.

@Mr_Lazo:

that would be ok so long as reps would be given ONLY in a sales-related fashion. There are people who give -rep not only because they were swindled in a sale, but out of simple dislike of anothers posts, person, way of expression or opinion. Generally, both + and - reps may be given in a responsible or irresponsible manner, so there's no reason to treat them differently.
