    Or at least cut it down to a positive/negative indicator so that newbies to the site know who to ignore, possibly even having a limit on neg rep before a ban

    It wasn't until these various threads started discussing it that I noticed that little bit of text at the bottom. I was going more by the green and orange blocks at the top. So yes, I agree with what you suggest.

    Ahh the joyus rep debate is back again
    The reason its anonymous is to prevent arguments but people can add their name if they like, there are no rules regarding that but you cant leave serious abuse/swearing via the rep system or the rep will be removed and the ability of the person to post rep will be removed as well. Initially those that do send abuse will get a warning with the neg rep removed. If you want rep investigates please post in the "Message the Admins" forum in the "EduGeek Stuff" forum section.

    Nephilim has a lot of rep due to thanked posts he has made, dos and me wont get anywhere near as much as you can thank on the frontpage and in general we dont post as often although a quick database edit...

    And he deserves it for that!

    @nephilim - just in case you were offended, my comments weren't aimed as a dig at yourself or to throw doubt on your reputation, merely to prove the point that the rep isn't the be all and end all that some people think it is...

    In terms of points, I can add/remove 147 points...in terms of rep points, it equates to about +/-9

    I think people take rep too personally myself. I get neg rep quite often, as I seem to rub quite a few people up the wrong way, but hey, that's just my personality it seems.

    My personal take on the rep system is to misquote Oscar Wilde...

    "The only thing worse than getting negative rep...is getting no rep"
