I remember the rep system, and I can't say I miss it much. We already keep track of stuff like when you joined, your post count, supporter status, and emblems, so I don't see the need for further things to help us 'keep score,' so to speak. On the whole, I find that reputation metrics make the forum experience too much like a big meta-game, as opposed to a more organic kind of social space.

Oh yeah, and we still have the post comments system. Totally forgot about that, haven't used it in years.

My chapter fics:
Kanto: The Disputed Frontier - 14 chapters, indefinite hiatus. Gary Stu's Unpredictable Adventure - 8 chapters, completed. Digimon Campaign - 7 chapters, ongoing

There's Always Tomorrow (SWC 2009), A Matter of Stubbornness (SWC 2010), Left by the Roadside
(SWC 2011 1st place),
Giovanni Destroys the World and Everything in It (2012), By What Right? (SWC 2013 1st place), Back in the Day (SWC 2014 1st place)
