I don't really see a huge purpose for a reputation system. I thought about turning it off. Either way, I didn't turn it off. After playing around with it, I thought a 5 hour delay was too long for members to get a measly 1% boost. That was the setting. If you gave someone a boost, you had to wait 5 hours to do it again. It'll take 20 years before anyone has a respectable rating.

Effective last night, I reduced the 5 hour delay to 0.01 hours. Smiley

That answers the question as to why I could give someone a boost and then the option wasn't there to do so for another member. Then later the same process would repeat.

I could see a freeze on giving the same person continuous bumps, but if two people do really great things, you should be able to increase the reputation of both.

It'll be lower if I have anything to do with it.

The better the reputation you have, the more percentage points you are able to bump up other people's reputation. Starbrand currently bumps up a reputation by 4% when ever he clicks the "+". Quato still only affects people by 1%. He's got the lowest reputation on the board.

Quato can't be trusted with more than 1%.

I increased Quato's reputation by 6%. I feel sorry for the guy. Always a second fiddle, never a bride.

I'm not convinced. Have you seen his avatars over the years?

Whatever this is...

A bar code!

A lightning bolt!?

The letter "Q"?

I think this is what he really looks like!

I was going to increase the reputation of a fellow board member just now, but only the - sign was next to his name, meaning it was only giving me the option of decreasing his rep. I checked another board member, and had the option of + or - on him. I haven't changed anyone's rep in a few days, so it's not related to that. I'm sure this situation will probably automatically correct itself shortly.
This may have something to do with the board only allowing reps to be increased by a total of a certain amount within a certain period of time, regardless of who increased it. That's just a quick theory.

The range is -100% to +100%. It'll have a "+" sign up until 99%. Once you hit 100%, the "+" sign goes away. If you increase the reputation of someone by 6% when they are at 99%, that will allow the reputation to go to 105%. My guess is that 109% is the highest reputation you can have.

I discovered this when I tried to decrease Quato's reputation lower than 100%. It's the flip side behavior on the negative end of the scale. Increasing Quato's reputation just seemed wrong to me.

Just to have something to do, I decided to decrease Defiant1's reputation. It went down 11%. Wow! The power... coursing through my veins.

I increased D1's rep back by 11%. And also increased Quato's by 11%, claiming he may be the real one, while D1 may be the alternate personality.

Much better!

I changed my avatar, so I had to lower it. Can't save my profile with a 110% reputation.

You don't REALLY want to know!
I swiped it from a "Dark Triad" website about Narcissism, Machiavellianism, & Psychopathy. I rank pretty high on Narcissism, and even higher on Machiavellianism. I'm very low on Psychopathy. It appears that morality is counterproductive to the triad of dark personality types. Smiley

Interesting. I'm glad I asked. I wonder if narcissism and psychopathy have a hard time coexisting in one person. Probably not, I guess. Perhaps you are a rare breed.

Machiavellianism involves a general distrust of others. It involves a "do what it takes to get the job done" mentality. It's been pretty clear that I'd dissect the sacred cow to know why it's sacred. It appears to me that highly valued personality traits can also be highly feared. It is to be expected.

Psychopathy involves a general disregard and complete apathy towards others. That's not really me. I can discard another person's beliefs and actions after fully being considerate of them. If a person wants to walk out in front of a car, I care very strongly. I'm the type that would not pander to the emotions that made someone want to do it. I would be highly arrogant and inconsiderate and call them an idiot. If they don't have the fortitude to accept that, they aren't going to have the fortitude to accept a car breaking their bones. I have a great deal of empathy, but I'm aware that everyone shapes the world that they encounter. People get what they settle for in life. My life put me face to face with a lot of people who were content for me to draw the short straw in life. Too many people beat on the front door trying to annoy someone enough that they let them in. It's easier to walk around to the side door that's unlocked and casually say "why were you locking me out when the other doors were open all along." People are obsessed with playing games when they themselves are nothing but pawns in the world. Call that a dark view of things. I call it enlightenment. I neither strive for the crown nor do I intend to settle for the trash.

Based on things I've seen... that's probably true. You have a profound optimism that I feel sets anyone up for disappointment.
The irony with me is that the optimist thinks I'm a pessimist and the pessimist thinks I'm the optimist.
I pretty much analyze the full scope of things so anything outside the parameters of what I'm seeing gets scrutinized.

I had a female friend on Facebook that went through a cycle of posts about optimism and then vented miserably when nothing went the way she wanted.
The "Power of Positive Thinking" has fundamental flaws in that you are blindly tackling reality and your subconscious is never really convinced. I pointed her to articles about the flaws of merely thinking positive and she was defensive. Eventually I got tired of seeing her reposts from Joel Osteen and Iliveyes that I just dropped her on Facebook. She's still a friend, but I don't have to see the crap anymore. I'm sure her feelings were hurt, because she immediately went and posted images with her and another married couple I know. Her picture was plastered over three profiles. I solved her grasp for validation by dropping three mutual friends on facebook. I don't like Facebook. I don't like the data mining. I don't like the drama and political posts. I like dogs and cats and kids, but I don't have it in my goals to see every photograph of a dog or a cat or a kid. Her optimism confronted my reality. My reality won. The mental cycle she is in horrifies me. I cannot imagine investing that much energy into something for which she has no control. In most things, you start with a foundation. You build upon what works and grows. You steer away from what doesn't work or grow. At no point would I hang from the weakest branch on a tree and say "I'm going to be optimistic." If I say those words, I've got a clear mental picture how it can get done. Sometimes that does factor miracles, but I still understand why that miracle has a divine methodology.

I seem to recall a time when your reputation was 110%. Maybe I'm wrong. Now it won't go over 100%. Others I've seen go to 110%.

It has to be tricked to go over 100%. I had to modify something on my profile and it dropped me down in the process. No big deal to me.
