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 - Indefinite hiatus // Gary Stu's Unpredictable Adventure - Complete // New: Digimon Campaign - 10 chapters posted out of 17

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)
New: Dad's Old Gym (SWC 2016 2nd place)
