i have decided that this forum really could use the whole rep thing to be more than just an miniscule increase every 10,000 years!

first off, i guess it's a matter of whether or not the system can be redesigned and new ways of repping instated. but if it can/could be, then i propose a belt system, similar to Sherdog, but where rep is the key factor. simply put, every rep is worth 1 point, and you can only recieve rep if you've given one out. meaning, for me to have recieved 10 rep, i have to have given 1 rep for each i recieved, i.e. 10. this way, all rep is reciprocated, and it forces people to rep others if they want theirs to be boosted.

as for the belts, the mods/admins have to determine a suitable scale, such as, everyone starts off as whites, then when you get say 25 rep, you move up to yellow... 100 to the next, 150 to the next, so on... the scale wouldn't be static, as you should need a much greater amount of rep to go to the next belt.

i just think this way, everyone's rep is earned and reciprocated, and it would also take a while to move up in belts--not like in sherdog where people just post to make themselves feel good.

anyway... just my idea.

not bad at all as long as certain users with multiple accounts don't rep themselves from there many accounts. That could get ugly. We'd need a ip ban on members repping themselves.

Is that something only moderators can do or can all of us see IP also?


Sounds like a good idea PT, hopefully something can get done....I have 19 rep points...is that good? Ha, I've gotten a lot of neg reps in the past but lately I have gotten a huge stream of positive rep from people. Rep needs to be more involved for this site. People should respect you for your rep and your join date, not the number of posts you have or color of your name....just my opinion anyway

thanks!!!

i've spent a few years at sherdog and seen the best and worst of belt/rep...so i kinda think my idea is the best of both worlds... just gotta be tweaked and discust amount the admins and mods to figure out the details. but, is anyone actively thinking/working on this?

I like your idea but I think we should think of something other than the belt system. In about a year when this site gets big the Sherdoggers are gonna sya we stole their idea. But I like your rep system.

I know this is off topic but I figured you guys might know about how to raise my points or how it gets raised.

I've posted on here for about a month but I haven't found any links in FAQ or on threads on how it rises.

Thanks in advance.
