    There's a joke about Vinnie in there somewhere.

    And I haven't voted, but I will now point out that since it's GC and the rules for rep currently don't apply, I can now do something I absolutely dispise and know that I'm safe from all negative rep harm. Yes, that's right... I'm going to start my point here, add a lot of spaces, make you scroll down and...

























    my brilliant kicker is here! Man, I hate that. Have a good one.

    you teenager!



    Allow rep only one day per year in the GC.

    Like a special evenement.

    Sooo... any chance that if the majority say yes, rep will be turned on in the gc?

    Nah. The majority of everyone on SitePoint agrees that I should be crowned Dictator-for-Life and Ruler Supreme of the World but it doesn't look like that will happen.

    Unfortunately, experience tells us that enabling reputation in GC causes us problems, with many more members abusing the system by begging for rep, as well as many more complaints. Some people take reputation very seriously. This has been discussed at length by the mentors and advisors since reputation was first introduced and the best compromise we could come up with was to allow people to turn off their own reputation system, and to disallow reputation in General Chat (ie, where post count doesn't count either).

    We didn't tell you that in this case, the definition of "World" was changed to mean the lower commode only. Anything outside of that is now the Macroworld.

    Reputation should've been called: RR - Reputation Rank, with a small green bar like the PageRank one, like mmj's avatar

    We're all obsessed with PR anyway.
