    Dude, even if it means nothing; it is ridiculous for user to give a extremely high amount of rep.

    Rep means nothing, but it could also serve as warning as well. If a person had been punish with -2 reputation, he could earn 4 reputation if somebody that are capable to give 4 reputation came in and give it all the sudden.

    This resulted into the punish person never learn from their mistake.

    Nothing is going to change about the rep system because we have better things to do at the moment.

    Really, stop caring.

    Wrong, because the user will keep repeating the same mistake over and over, as he didn't learned and even gained some free rep. This will eventualy lead to some red gems or ban.

    You keep contradicting yourself. If it means nothing it's not ridiculous. If it actually does mean something then it is ridiculous.

    I think the reason we should not allow users to distribute the amount of reputation they want is obvious and clear for everybody: it will be used the wrong way.

    How so?

    If the max rep I can give is 4, why not allow me to give out rep in bouts of 3's, 2's and 1's as well?

    Has rep ever been used the right way?
    Is there even a right way to use rep at all?

    The right use is to give a user a little reward for something good he did, like an excelent resource, or helping somebody out in the WE help zone. I do disagree with rep parties, and other non-sense(*cough* FrIkY *cough*). For me its also a 'lil about teh friendly message

    EDIT: 500th post, Yeeeeeeeeeeeh

    I wonder what these things are.

    Anyways... beeing redundant, I say once more that rep means nothing. Why? Because people just give it out for every second somehow amusing thing you come up to. How do I know? I've never uploaded a resource (except a crappy terrain of mine long ago)... and guess what? I have more than 150 rep. Reputation has lost it's value (if it had any) and now has just become a senseless treat between users, like little candies that children give to other children. But hey, people like to give and get reputation, and user relations are easily improved by handing-out rep. "Hey, this guy gave me rep, he must be nice!" and so on. So, my points against any change in the rep system are:
    1. No one gives a shit about it.
    2. It is fun.
    3. It helps users to get along better.
    4. It allows some users to live up to their ego when everything else fails, with amusing results.
    5. And remember, removing the rep system is like taking candy from a child. And we do not want that, do we? (I mean the moans, cries and general drama that will follow...)

    1) This is a site discussion section and users are welcome to make a suggestions even if the suggestion could give a minor improvement or extremely small amount of benefict to the users. After all, the site discussion forum clearly written this.

    2) Contradict or not, it was a suggestion.

    3) My suggestion does not need to please anybody, but the webmaster itself. If Ralle think it could be helpful even by little, he would add it.

    As Ash said, how can it be abuse when there is a limit for it?

    Min - 1 reputation (0 if your reputation was below 0)
    Max - Depends on the amount you could dish.

    1) I did not suggest it to be remove.
    2) I suggest it to have a system that allowed user to use it at the right way, for those who want to use it at the right way; then they could use it.

    Usually I don't trust red guys (if you know what I mean). You're correct in some parts.

    Please do not off topic, we are currently discuss about the amount of reputation a user could give. (For those who could give more than 1 reputation).

    Well, this sucks! I've given out too much rep in 24 hours, so I have to wait a while to give out more. So, sorry if I missed any of you.
