Another thing I'd like to add about reputation.
There's one thing to ask for it but it's another to use it as currency. I think that it's absolutely pathetic when people are told to repay in reputation when actually it benefits nothing and never ever will apart from your ever increasing ego. This mainly happens in the Pokémon threads where it's all like "I HAVE EGGZ" it's not a freaking sperm donation agency.
I do know that some of these people are good posters (Hello Demonflair) but asking for reputation as currency isn't really earning it properly.
In fact, just stop rep then I'd be made up.
EDIT: If anyone reps me in irony I'd spork out your eyes.
