    Idk, maybe a reputation bar where you press the Plus to add reputation, and Minus to remove. This could help on user reliability. I would find it nice, like in guides.

    Reputation on the Temp comes with being a regular, you earn your reputation and most members of this site know who's trust worthy and who's not.
    So I say no to some bar being added since honestly it won't do anything, but create a popularity contest.

    Or at least post reputation? Lol in the corner, it has reputation? Like above, it would help.

    I think that's what the WARN bar is for..

    More Warn % means... unreliable
    (don't quote me on that, that's just a guess)

    We can't see other user's warn bars.

    I concur with Catboy.
    I think Reputation is just tacky.

    Do you see people in your neighbourhood going around wearing signs saying "I AM A REPUTABLE PERSON! 4 OUT OF 5 PEOPLE SAID YES WHEN ASKED IF I WAS A REPUTABLE PERSON"

    Exactly, you gain reputation and renown through your actions in the community and on the forums. Besides, the rank is good enough.

    A good idea on paper, but it'll just become a popularity contest as the Catboy said. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Also, the mods would just remove bad guides....

    Is a user's post count high? Have their previous threads been insightful and helpful? Do they explain things thoroughly? Are they known across GBAtemp and other forums? If so, they won't try to be malicious. Reputation is unnecessary for these reasons.

    This gets suggested about once every four months, and is shot down every time.
    We want GBAtemp to be a community, not a popularity contest and e-peen gallery.

    +1.

    The possibility of giving "reputation" points is quite pointless (a pun?). I don't see any more need to have something after the post count to tell people if the person has been here before a lot or is reputable. Also this might lead to flaming between others (this person doesn't have enough +1's, don't trust him! Trust me, I have +4!).

    Away from you.
    No... just... no...

    GBAtemp is not Facebook, it is not GameFAQs, it is not IGN, it is not, as VA said, an e-peen gallery, it is not a place for assholes to congregate and brag about their so called "reputation", we have politics for that.
