My friend and I have actually been talking about this the past 2 days.
The logos do reveal a bit, but they're not going to help us clue in to what NEW characters were going to see in the future. If only.
Rep is a factor on Wiichat (and most sites) which tell how much a member is appreciated. Unfortunately, the systems been corrupted because of certain members who spoiled it, but I think it's getting better. This is no place to talk about rep though, discuss the topic.
