[QUOTE=Tom] 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. [/QUOTE]
What about a feature similar to Yahoo Answers and other like sites? Particularly when a help request is given and the original poster finds one or several replies quite helpful or fully answers the request. Those who reply can also receive a little extra rep (say, just one rep point) by OTHERS who read the post and also find the input helpful.
This, I think, would encourage quality feedback and given even, perhaps, those who just TRY to offer help a chance to garner rewards.
