Default Rep System Changes

It's come to my attention that a lot of people feel the rep system is broken so I thought I would start a poll/discussion on it here.

The main issue seems to be with the spread of rep needed; in order to rep the same person twice you need to rep 10 other people first. I know this worked fine when the forums were more active but with fewer users I can understand why this might be a bit high. My suggestion would be the change the number of people you need to rep to 5 and see if that improves things.

I'd like the thoughts/votes of people interested.

I know I have seen how the system works somewhere, can you repost it. Is there a reset time for repping?

Ah, sorry, I forgot that it isn't really explained anywhere in detail how it works. I can't find an explanation for it anywhere else but I can write one up for you now.

Reputation Power: How much rep you give out to others depends on how long you have been a member, how many posts you have made and how much rep you have been given.

Reputation giving frequency: You can give rep to five people per day. You must give rep to 10 different people before you can give rep to the same person again.

The last point is the one I think needs changing to account for the smaller userbase at the moment; making it so you only need to rep 5 other people before you can rep the same person again.

From a plain statistical point of view - I second that the reputation giving frequency seriously needs to be changed.

That was always really though - but with the lower number of posters it has turned almost impossible.

I agree it needs to be lowered. The idea of minimum torep before repeating is probably to get people to rep outside their circles. Ideally say you would have to rep your active circle of friends plus say 20% additional people. So I think five might be a little low for that purpose, plus you want repping someone to mean something. If you can do it every post it becomes boring, plus people active on more boards should have more rep to give so you want them to maintain some advantage over someone like me who never goes into stories or whatever else. I think dropping by half is probably too much. Plus if the number of people you can rep per day is equal to the number you have to rep before you can rep someone else then you can rep the same people every day. Do we want it like that?

Okay, the poll has closed and apparently 100% of people want the change I suggested so we will do that. =)

Given what Dwes has said, I think I might start by lowering the spread needed to 7 rather than 5. If you could all give it a couple of week/month to get used to the new setting and then get back to me on whether or not you want it lowered further, than would be great.

Thanks for your input everyone.
