View Full Version : ChiefsPlanet Rep thresholds should be raised

I know this is basically unimportant and I barely care about rep myself, but if we are going to have rep, then it should mean something. Checking around a bit recently I noticed that almost everyone who has been here longer than a few months (who I checked anyway) has the max rep level.

Maybe the various levels we have, whatever they are (I only know about the silly "rep heist" level because almost everyone has it) should be raised. I'd think only the greatest posters of chiefs planet, fine glorious net citizens who we all adore such as Rain Man, AustinChief, and a few others, should have reached the pinnacle of chiefsplanet rep.

Some random dude like me (who is sorta known, but not really) shouldnt have the top rating comparable to our most beloved members, I should be at least 2 or 3 rungs lower.

The whole system is pretty much screwed unless we completely redo it all. Every time I change the levels up, I have to go in and do it all over again a few months later. It's not really worth the hassle anymore, honestly.

All reps are really used for anyways are ballwashing other people but not having to do it in front of people.

If we are acknowledging that the rep-system is pointless and broken, we should replace poster rep with post rep.

Where posters don't get rep, but their content does.

Here's a mod that looks like it could work well, with a thumbs up, down functionality plus a lot of other things.

I would guess it might have something to do with writing the word "you" as "u", "you're" as "ur", and spelling fuck as "Fuk".

Yeah, but it would take YEARS for it to happen. The crux of the issue, at the moment, is that we have a major case of rep inflation going on. Rep power is partly based on current rep level, so people with a million rep points are giving and taking thousands of points with each rep they give. I could lower the formulas down, but then people would seemingly never move at all. (For example, if I change it so that the average rep is 100 instead of 5,000, people would basically be stuck at 1 million or whatever they're at indefinitely, while n00bs would basically have no chance of ever joining the ranks of the elite, no matter how awesome they are.)

If we zero everyone out, I could lower the formulas down dramatically so that rep actually means something again. Eventually, inflation would take over again, but it took 10 years to get to the point it's at now.

Donger

Some of us are rep whores.

I don't post a lot and thus don't get repped one way or another a lot. And I find some of the rep tier comments (not to mention the actual rep comments themselves) mildly amusing, so its a "fun" thing when I make it to a new tier.

There should be more rep levels. Also, there should be more boobs in this thread.

Scrap the rep system and use a system like a thumbs up/thumbs down type of system and have everyone's rep be their total....Thumbs Up's - Thumbs down = Total rep. Allow comments when thumbs upping or thumbs downing a post, like now. Show the number of thumbs up and down on the posts. Show who thumbs upped and thumbs down.

Each thumbs up should be only +1 each thumbs down -1

No one person should be able to wipe out 50 peoples thumbs up. No one person should be able to give 50 people's worth of thumbs up.
