It's a lot harder to change it than one would think CC.
This has been discussed many times in the staff section and we've been unable to find a reasonable solution. The problem with making all rep the same, even if an Admin would have time to do it, is that the vast majority of our members are green, with the vast majority of our paids fully green. It would not be fair that our new members must be subjected to the new rep rule, while our older members can be high up there with their rep.
To keep it fair and balanced, we'd have to reset everyone's rep, and from what I know, there's no "reset all rep" button. An admin would have go through and individually recalculate each person's rep.
There are ways to fix the problem, but you're talking about a substantial amount of work, work that only admins can do, so it won't be a whole staff helping, it'll just be 3 or so people.
Trust me, I've brought up rep changes multiple times in the staff section, a few of us have, but by the time the discussion is done, we've made no progress casue we have yet to find a reasonable, time worthy way of doing it.
