The future of the reputation system

Lately we've seen lots of rep padding, which reflects false feedback on our users.
As a response to this, we removed reputation from Off-topic. Later this week we will introduce a new system which involves awards.

i'm pretty sure most of that rep-padding was based on the fact that everyone knew you guys were going to say bye at the rep system though.

btw, i still se my rep counter, shouldn't that be removed as well?

The reputation counter wasn't removed. It is now just impossible to award reputation to people on the OT sub forum.

It probably was a good idea to start with, it is good to be able to reward people that contribute to discussions on both sides. Yet what I've seen before a lot here is people repping for clear troll posts, and folks that always rep any post of certain individuals, despite it being uniformative, rude, off-topic, or plain nonsense. And the reputation system enforced a formation of groups that more often resulted in needlessly heated discussions between them.

There are people like Labby and Sheepnub that deserved every bit of rep they got for their endless advice and insightful posts, while others behave like pricks and have thousands of rep points. Than there are others not so vocal who are rather underrepesented in terms of rep despite being polite, contribute a lot and are decent persons all around.

I do not think off-topic rep is bad by the way, I repped C0llis once for a hilarious avatar, and he deserved it. Stuff like this is cool in my book. The biggest problem I had with the rep system is that you can give more the longer you've been here and the more rep you already have. And also, naturally new people rather listen to people with more rep, which proves problematic if some of them delive a rather bad image of symthic as a site.

Honestly the only person worth listening to is The World Champion.
You have just read a Post by The World Champion and now feel smarter for doing so.

I figure we should also give out "awards" for those who have contributed to Symthic in other ways than game analysis and such, The World Champion being a good example. Bit of in-role humour every now and then eases the atmosphere quite a bit :')

the fact he has a good bit more reps than you makes it quite obvious that that is something liked in symthic and probably everywhere else.... he also has had good ideas and points, so i guees twc would be more of a specific case rather than an example, at least when considering the rep amount.

the award system, if is based not on just plain points like the reps, then it might be handy at recognizing also what type of person you're talking to.
