mmm i had 724 rep just a couple minutes ago but i found a button that says recalculate reputation and since there are some badges missing that i should have once the server updates i figured i would press that button . Now i have 448 rep..

whehe

whehehe

I guess that button is not the hidden treasure badge. At least i can scratch that from the list lmao

Rep is a work in progress, there's quite a few 'leaks' on the site. Treat is as a beta for now, it's all on the list of things to sort out :)

If nobody tell you about it then you would think it all works fine right? :)
I was not complaining, instead just noting it really. Hence the whehehehe's ;)
It is a solid, proven concept to have some sort of status symbol on the site. Everyone loves to be high rank *nods One could perhaps even call it a game when it comes down to finding hidden treasure and such which i tried btw lolz but i cannot find it, nor that darned princess. But not giving up just yet lmao

I had the same deal recently - I saw the recalculate button and clicked it. I was sad. LOL I lost over 100 points! Small potatoes but it feels good to see some kind of progress in just LEARNING and participating.

I'm also at a loss for finding the princess and treasure... I'll probably stumble on it randomly.
I'm seeking Narnia. Who wants to come with me! Aslan is on the move!

Your not really part of the community until you've pressed the button and lost the reps, we've all been there, it's like a right of passage.

I think when it was first implemented it was supposed to be how much the site trusts you and gives you permissions to access areas and edit stuff like a wiki.

In reality it's more like a game, a way to encourage people to join and stick around as people naturally like compete and gain the highest score.

The only thing I can think of that rep affects is that your uploads to the arcade don't need to be approved if you have more than 1000.
