    I've lurked around other forums, and have seen a lot of them allowing users to receive reputation (could be raised or lowered based on fellow members' input) based on if their posts were helpful or not. They also only allow senior members to raise/lower other's rep. I think this would be a great addition to TouchArcade :D

    I think that this is a good idea. The problem would be people who abuse the power

    Here's the problems with this idea:

    1. Idiots will neg people just for the hell of it. Revenge negs, that time of the month negs, etc.
    2. I'm not sure about it but I think that the more posts you have the more rep you can give. This will only boost spamming.
    3. Reputation is useless/meaningless. What it really is it's a popularity contest. Thus the one with the most green might not necessarily be the most helpful.
    4. Arn doesn't care. I don't know why people bother posting their "ideas" in this section since Arn hardly replies to them.
    That is all...

    I knew that would make you reply, hehe. Psychology is amazing. You should try to reply to all the suggestions, even if just to shut them down. Maybe post something like "never gonna happen" or "that is not possible at this time" or "that's a dumb idea". We can't see you "listening" to the suggestions so how are we to know that you actually do?. My two cents...

    I would say about -283. That's about right. Probably less. I can see Klondy sitting and giving me negs all day. ;)

    Well there of course would be rules to this, like you could only rep. once per week +/- a couple days, and plus, it could show who some helpful people are around the forum. This could also connect to the number of posts required to become a senior member, raising the requirement to prevent spam in reps. And there should be a page that makes you tell why you gave that person a rep. and if it isn't a sufficient reason, the mods could always change it.
