It comes up now and again, and it hasn't actually been that long ago that we last spoke of it. I was asked to bring it up, so here is. I'll withhold my opinion for now.

Some seem to think that bringing back user rep is an awesome idea.

What say you, fellow staffers?

I'd love rep to come back. Give post comments more of a use? God yes.

Plus... numbers. Who doesn't like higher numbers? :x

I don't mind seeing it back, seeing that I wasn't a member yet when it was taken down.

Rep is the satanic spawn of VBulletin. It should never touch our community ever again.

Yes. I had a crapload of positive points all my friends gave me for no reason and I'd like to see them back! Please please please!
You got lost, lost through the night
It's no loss, you'll be alright
Tell me you'll feel better
When you're sleeping through the day
And I'll tell you how you missed it
When you wake

I am sick of members moaning about everything else, I don't want ANOTHER thing for them to latch on and be butt hurt about.

Well I never actually started getting any rep until after the points were disabled!

Food for thought: Post Comments count as negative rep. The more post comments you've received, the worse your rep will be if it's re-enabled!

For once Went's position is useful. He outranks you. He can vote to bring it back, you guys can't. So even though you don't want it, too bad, it'll probably come back. :3

Oh hell yes. Rep brought so much needed competition and activity here in PC. I still remember the days of Multiple Green blocks and the feeling of low class I had during the time.

I for once don't care because I wasn't really around when it was around. I don't particularly care for all these stories about how they're horrible and biased and yadda yadda. The whole damn world is biased and you don't see it getting blown up yet.

As en ex-S-Mod and Führer of PokéCommunity, here are some animated gifs that express my feelings towards the return of reputation:

Spoiler:








They go a way to express my disgust if this putrid system comes back.

That Homestuck GIF stuck in the middle of Mr Cat Dog's post makes me inclined to automatically agree with him. xD

Ha haha hahahhahah ahahhahahah ooooh, I love how you're the person telling us we're egoistical. Go check your username and rank, and then proceedingly take a look at your join date, then come back and tell us that we're egoistical again. To be honest, it wouldn't suprise me if you were blackmailing Steve in one way or another, just so you could get that power for whatever reason you have.

As for rep, no thanks.

All joking aside, my stance honestly hasn't changed since it was taken away last time. I think a positive reputation only system would work nicely; all the drama arises from people down-repping each other (aside from the one or two people here and there who constantly up-vote each other, and that could easily be solved with an infraction or just implementing some sort of limit on how many times you can up-rep someone each week).
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

+Rep
"Your so smexy"

-Rep
"You used their in the incorrect form, your grammar fails gtfo"

Yes that is how I want my rep to be used. I don't see why are so against such a system. Come on now, our memberbase is capable of being civil and not abusing such as system. Everyone just needs to have faith in them, because I am sure everything will turn out great just like Post Comments have.

Can't we just implement a "Like" system with posts rather than getting rep back all together.

It's been done with vB4 and I use it a lot in Bulba. :P
