'cause I can't see how to do it. Or is this just one more constraint on youngling's ability to contribute to TL society?

Nope, you can't. Read the rep thread (http://www.theoryland.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=263) - I explain all.

Oh, and it's all Tam's fault. It's also his fault you have to rep 20 people before you can rep the same person again. Yes, 20. I counted...

Thanks T! I figured it was discussed somewhere, but frankly I was just too lazy to look it up. :D

OK- what the heck happened to the rep? I'm gone for like 24 hours, I come back and several people's rep has shot through the roof. What did I miss?

Inflation. Dav gave me rep, and I went from two bars to six. :s Me and Dav had a PM conversation about it, and I tested it on him, and he went from three bars to eight! Then I felt dirty so I had to spread the love some. Then vBulletin told me I had given out too much rep today, so I had to quit. :D

lol!

I looked for the mind blowing thread that could have caused this cornucopia of rep- and was left baffled :D

Yeah, I'm trying to get Tam to look into changing some of the settings on the rep system. He says he didn't quite know where to set them because he's never used the system, but the craziest settings are obviously that post count and reputation points give us FAR too much rep power, and that you have to rep 20 people before repping the same person again.

I wouldn't be surprised if Tam just decides to kill rep altogether rather than play with the settings.

I'm still MAD with power I tell you....

Well, you don't have as much power as you did before. Nor do I. I dunno if Tam can fix our crazy reps though. He's just fixed the settings so that post count and reputation don't give you such a high rep power.

Fix my Rep Rating? I hadn't noticed anything wrong with it.

Well, if you want to be that way about it. :D I repped Muttley earlier for having finally finished Toll the Hounds, and he only went up to four bars. That still seems a little inflated (probably due to the fact that, though the ratios have been widened for rep power, I still have an inflated rep) but he might have already been teetering on the edge of four bars.

I think we must all be very cautious with repping people. This could quickly spin out of control into a Repping war and who know's what the consequences of that would be...

I was wondering what the heck happened. I go away for a couple of days, and when I come back, people have long, green strips under their name. I knew there had to be a conspirancy of some sort, seeing the people who had major rep... :D

I tried to rep spammer and nothing changed on his rep bar...damn you for stripping me of my powers...damn you!!!

Do you reckon it's because I'm a lowly Youngling, and the magic rep multiplier only happens between those of higher rank?
