    This is a idea that I think would be nice to add.
    I for example when I give 2 rep when I press add reputation, however when I am for example spreading I lesss likely want to add 2 rep to people for doing nothing it would be more suiting to give them +1.

    so my suggestion is that you can choose how much rep you want to add 1-4 for those with much rep.

    another example is for icon makers, if I say "nice icon 5/5" some rep back which means I can get +4 rep by typing for one second. Meanwhile in the trigger someone can spend 1 hour creating a requested system and gain the same ammout.

    Hello Chaosy,
    I can see how this would make it more flexible. I support your idea, but I don't know when I would have time to make such a feature.

    I agree with Chaosy, we should be capable of choosing amount of rep to spread, like the mods and admin can, but strict to their max rep limit

    Well, in other hand, I think if we implement this system rep limit can be increased, maybe from 4 to 5 or 6.

    Sounds rather pointless really.

    Rep has always been just a "pat on the back" to acknowledge that someone has done something useful.
    The actual numeric values have never carried any meaning or purpose.

    Indeed, but I see rep as cash ($). Why would someone who work 1 second get the same ammout of cash as one who works for 1 hour? This exist in real life ofc but it should not be that way

    What? Rep and cash are nothing alike. The people who actual care about rep may see it that way, which is really sad. Rep on this website, much like others with the same system, have become meaningless with things like rep parties and giving rep to e-friends routinely for no particular reason. Honestly I find this idea pretty useless as rep already has no meaning, and it would be better just to see past reputation as a whole.

    Rep has the meaning one places onto it. When I give rep its for the service I deem truly deserve it and thus I value that rep highly. Similar when I receive rep I rather be able to see what I received it for, than how much or adjust it.

    For a while I had a way so people usually gave rep to me, using only one of my posts, making it possible for me to see everyone I helped and their comments which counts more for me than the rep itself. However had to disable that notion, so instead of being able to adjust given rep, perhaps allow one to see every rep + comment received?
    I know the server already saves them, so making the available would be awesome.

    Some people see REP as REP so the people(e.g. : Xian_1998) will try harder to increase the reputation(nobody like a negative reputation, right ?).I think the amount of the rep that given by the users is enough.
    :thumbs_up: The more rep can be given by the users, the less meaning of the rep

    I don't believe its the point of the original suggestion to increase the amount of rep given, instead its about adjusting the rep one can give - so when one for instance can give 2 rep as maximum, then it can be changed to only be 1 rep if one do not believe whatever it was deserved 2.

    EDIT: Ralle is awesome - He actually fulfilled my long long standing dream. Damn nice.

    The effect of rep is quite real.

    Someone with only a few green icons posting a request will likely go ignored, whereas someone with a whole rainbow can get multiple solutions.

    The amount of rep you have is the size of your e-peen.

    When I saw the word perks, this is what came into my mind:

    Spending rep to buy in-hive stuff.

    Ah, how nice.
    Let's make the site worse for people that have not participated in enough rep-parties and circlejerking to afford the perks.

    ....Honestly the idea sounds a bit disgusting.

    @Aeroblyctios I don't know; what I had in mind was limited time user avatars, user icons, limited time user name text design, etc.

    If that were to happen it would be pretty cool.
