What happened to all my REP?
 
Haven't logged on in awhile but I've noticed all my nice pretty rep disappeared. What happened?

Russian hackers jacked the site. Want to guess the item that was corrupted during the back up?

It is a shame, a had a fair chunk of rep from just being me and occasionally posting pics, its amazing how much rep you get being a jerk who isn't afraid to speak his mind haha

Huh that sucks. I had a bunch of rep for my painting/modeling :(

At the end of the day it's just a number. I'm sure with your painting and modelling skills it will shoot back up.

Yep because mine had launched back up.... At this point the rep system could disappear and I wouldn't care. Lost damn near 3k and as dead as the forum is good luck getting it back.

Well the new system is one point at a time. So the standard for high rep now is much lower. Once you're used to it things won't seem so disappointing. :)

And it means more now. 1 point at a time directly matches the number of times people approved of your posts. Previously rep didn't represent approval very clearly, a single repping by a senior member often counted more than half a dozen approvals from other members.

This way round avoid 'rep hyperinflation' which I've seen on other forums. The regulars/power users were giving out huge amounts of rep, largely to one another, so it was a sign of regularity not quality. THis way round avoids that to some extent, because everyone gives the same amount so the speed at which you get massive rep inequality is severely reduced.

Only tossers get heaps of rep
