    I found out it was rather annoying for a user to be able to give reputation without the capability to adjust the amount of reputation they given to a user.

    I gives 2 reputation to user at 1 go. However, why not enable a normal user like me and the others that are capable to give 2 reputation and above to adjust the amount we could gives?

    For example, a post or resources by user xxx deserve 1 reputation and I could give them exactly 1 reputation instead of 2 or above depends on my current reputation.

    its only rep, who cares? don't be greedy on the newbies
    giving them more rep will just make them more happy and motivated

    It has been said so many times and yet people still think that rep means something.

    I think that it's for every 200 reputation you have, your +rep is worth 1 more. I think.

    Well, Joe-Black-5 is right, but I think it would be convienent to give 0 rep, just a friendly message. For a cool quote or something. But rep is infact not much so maybe we dont need this.

    M4stah, dude, if we remove reputation, some people here might commit a suicide. Don't joke with these things. xD

    FrIkY, not removing rep, just not implenting ym idea of selecting regular rep or 0 rep. But completely removing rep would cause massive whining

    Every 200th rep increases your rep power by one, as does each 2500'th post, just for clarification.
    About the suggestion itself, I think it sounds truly unnecessary, to be honest. Rep _means_ nothing.

    I know rep means nothing, but it was ridiculous if we award a large amount of cookies for small contribution.

    I think this is a good idea. Moderators can adjust the amount of rep they give, I think users should be able to as well (within limits), for example you could choose between 1-3 or something.

    So people have other things to whine about than their post count xD

    Your rep is dark, for God's sake... But I agree with you, these tiny and shiny gems are pretty.
