I am taking a look at this system now, ultimately its not system critical but its a distraction from trying to get up-to-date with Harry Potter so I can be dragged to the latest bastard sequel inevitably at some point in the future and also from prodding whatever else it was I might be working on.

Anyway, chat excerpt:

Patrick says:
UPDATE `osnn`.`reputation` SET `reputation` = '10'
should do it ;p
JW says:
Yup.
Want me to make a backup just in case?
Patrick says:
Affected rows: 14661 (Query took 0.3209 sec)
already grabbed the table
JW says:
Nevermind.
Patrick says:
haha

So yeah, I have reset all rep ever given to 10 points. Some folks rep might go up, many will go down. But hey some of those numbers were ****ing unmanagable! It will be hopefully all tweaked up tonight but should hopefully bring some meaning back to the system.

Ok so just a quick follow up of how it all works. No reputation that was ever given to anyone has been removed simply re-valued. I just noticed people were getting 5k reputation from individuals because it was their birthday!

Of course feedback is welcome.

You gain 1 reputation power point for
- Each 30 days you have been with the site
- For every 100 points of reputation you recieve
- For every 100 posts you make.

You are just saying that because I have more rep than you!

I backed up the table incase my idea went horribly wrong, but quite happy with it.

Hah, just noticed the rep icon is a heart... isn't that sweet

You've been with the site longer than I have and help out way more than I do so your reps should be higher.
my rep ownz you all :p
And this is why the reputation system is a load of horse ****, spamming shouldn't get you reputations, good or bad.

If it wasn't for the rep system I wouldn't have this super Touchscreen pc but as you say people spamming, begging or even asking is quite annoying :rolleyes:

Speaking of that Super Touchscreen…how’s it working for you. Any new updates on how you like it or maybe something you don’t like about it?

I for one was glad to see you get that thing!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
