Yeah that was hard to word...."some have even been demoted over issues related to rep." I meant it as in Smoogy supported Dork who brought back Highlander/God and "secretly" gave him rep while Steel "baited" Highlander/God into getting banned in the first place while Highlander/God secretly slept with Noobs mother at their condo in Florida
I get it though....bringing him back was the bad part, and giving him the rep was just the extra F U in your bowl of alphabet soup. Hence "issues related to rep" , but i'll shut up.....i'm sure no one wants to hear about that anymore.

Again, I don't know much about Vb message boards (If thats what your using), but I wonder if the rep system can be modified? If the system's main goal is to increase member contributions then maybe "automating" a portion of it would help. Say for example if a user creates a good thread in the main forum....for every response the thread generates, the thread creater gets like 1 rep point.
This way people are going to be more inclined to contribute news and other worthwhile threads. Then in order to stop shitty thread, where members tell the starter to STFU a hundred times, from getting tons of rep mods can flag them as un-rep-worthy or something.
just a thought....
