I can't see any advantage to a rep system.

Thread Starter 
I've thought of setting up a system like some tech support boards have where someone who asks a question can award points to the person who answers it best, and the points could count toward something (coupons, Amazon $, or whatever) - that could be a very useful thing as it would encourage people to help answer questions. It's kind of a complicated system though, and I don't have time to figure it all out. You'd have to figure out how to limit the number of questions a person could ask so people wouldn't be giving out the points left and right - maybe people could "buy" a question with a small donation to the site of a couple dollars, and then some of the money would be redistributed to the top few answerers. I dunno. Other than that, no, rep is hard to keep fair and mostly just a pain.

I've never seen it on a board, but can see how it could be a pain.

Oh yeah, and plus you know I'd always be messing with people by ediitng their rep directly in the database.

It would be interesting to see how the person asking the question decided who answered it best. Maybe we should only let n00bs give rep.

I have to say, I've never seen the rep system work well.

I'd think that if folks paid attention over the course of a few weeks, a rep system would be either redundant or misleading.

Rule #1 of SF: If it's squirrel-worthy, photograph it for evidence later. I'm sorry but once you've passed your 6th grade World History class you have little excuse to find shit like that amusing. Certain people could probably do with a trip to their local Holocaust museum.
