Glad you dropped in. I agree there is an imbalance with the old system. But if the cut back for senior members is voluntary then an imbalance still exists with some cutting and others not. I fail to see why the whole thing is so controversial. While I agree rep has its purposes I am tempted to just disable it to avoid the ongoing controversy that seems to pop up on a regular basis.
PS. As you know, but others may not be aware, rep and thanks are separate modules and cannot be tied together.
Actually Rich - that's a good idea. Disable rep, and leave thanks in. The thanks is shown next to the user name anyway - and is probably more of a measure of reliability - more thanks received usually means higher trust.
And sorry - I hadn't realised it had become quite so controversial
You guys still run a great board here though.
