Rep is very random...

If you have found a bug, or have a suggestion/comment then leave it here

upvoting for a post, or a simple "Thank you" button would be sufficient to increase the post valor, didn't?

It would accomplish that, but it would also put users on vastly different scales of rep. Right now there's a reasonable rep distribution wherein there's a gradual and pretty common-sense progression from the most casual users up through Kyatric. (Ashley's obviously a very special case.)

Users like Yann and R0J0 provide continual, high-quality content on the forums: even if they only received 1 rep per "like" or "thanks," they'd receive a base of 2 points per post, plus on average 5-10 additional rep (because sometimes only one person would hit "thanks" and other times 350 users would all hit it).

If retroactively applied, I could see Yann going from 7K to an absolute minimum of 12K -- and maybe that's fair, but unless he drops off the planet, we would see a few users with stratospheric and untouchable rep. That's not necessarily wrong, but it's the sort of thing Tom and Ashley consider whenever they rebalance rep.

With the "Favorite User" option, there would be that huge initial jump as 80 people all add the ten most helpful people on the site, but it might fairly reflect the additional value they bring, and there would be a gentle but steady progression after that as new users join and recognize their contributions.

Right, I've re-written MOST of the rep code. The only thing left to do is badges and badge rep.

Everyone's rep at this stage has been recalculated. When I've finished the badges and badge rep, I'll create pages showing a report of where all your rep has come from and other better supporting pages.

@Tom - I'm guessing the sudden drop in my rep is due to the rewrite? I was at around 415 or so this morning, looking forward to finally getting over 500... now I'm down to 65 :P

This page explains your rep:

https://www.scirra.com/me/rep

I've had a look at yours, it all seems to be OK. As previously mentioned the rep system was quite buggy so a lot of people had rep they shouldn't of had.

I forgot to add the initial starting rep (100) so will be adding that in now. So your actual rep should be 167.

If you spot something that doesn't look right or correct, let me know and I'll investiage further.Tom2013-04-11 16:32:16

Also forgot to mention, there is currently no rep for badges. This is only temporary. This would explain a loss in rep for a lot of people. Hopefully this will be amended by next week. Sorry if this inconveniences anyone!Tom2013-04-11 16:24:02

I really like the revamped rep system for site activity. Looks well-balanced, and encourages community-strengthening activities.

Of course, I'm missing 3,000 rep since this morning =P but hopefully most of that comes back with the badges. Thanks for posting the rep tallies!RandomExile2013-04-11 16:43:13

The rep amounts are not final, so if anyone has suggestions on how to balance it more let me know.

Also can add other ways to obtain rep, but sometimes its technically not possible to add them all in.

@Tom - thanks, that makes sense. I haven't posted a whole lot yet, so most of the rep I had came form badges.
