The old system was wiped, it is gone, all of it. If you want rep you have to do like everyone else that has posted since that wipe and earn it. There is no past rep to base anything off of. Anyone who currently has rep of a decent amount has actually earned it and it is a true reflection of what they have earned since the site was borked.
The system in place is a reprsentation of those that are helping the site since it has been reborn. Consider this a second life of the site, the past is gone. In terms of that consider any old tute in the section gone also. Do not try to edit them, post new and fresh content based off of them. Site traffic will not improve from old posts being editted. The hacker blew those old posts off the search engine hits. If the tutes and other content is redone and posted as new sites then they fall into new search engine hits.
In otherwords consider anything pre hacker as gone, even if it is still here on the site. If you want rep, create a new reputation.
