Oh no, I just meant a few others had this same suggestion so you're not alone in that regard, there's no need to apologize! :3

I do understand your idea on needing to comment on a +rep so members can see why one is helpful, but I don't think a system like that is something we really need at the 'mo. It still has risks of turning into a popularity contest; I've run into issues in other places where groups of friends would +rep themselves to increase their reputation count. Others might be put off from not having a high rep count, and telling people how useful or not useful they are based on a system that can be abused so easily isn't really what we want. There's also the idea that people's opinions are subjective and differ from person to person, so what's good to one may not be good to another.
