I can see it... but then again I'm an optimist..:yh:As rep points is naturally a larger number then we'll have to start by estimating that maximum instead of rep power; as I believe that both integers will have the same max value. We are seeing 5,000,000+ points now. And as everything is usually in binary quantities then (2^15)-1 is ruled out as that would only give 32,767 points. The next is 32 bit: (2^31)-1 with a max of 2,147,483,647 points. If this is the max, then we would have to assume that 21,474,836 is highest rep power someone can have.

Now if we on the off-chance happen to have 64 bit integers, then (2^63)-1 would see a value of 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 points and a max rep power of ... 92,233,720,368,547,758!

I'm going to put my bet on 32 bit.

But the chances of any of us reaching the limit is incredibly low, asI can't seriously see the mods letting us post with 21,000,000 rep power now can you?
