first of all i agree about disabling this
i also agree that it still was a cool feature - but managing each and every rep comment manually just doesnt work and on top of that is stupid and unnecessary censorship
but i think it could be easily improved for the ... well .. milieu we have here

how about a more complex/advanced rep system - with thumbs up/down for each given rep (pretty simple actually as you can see things like that about everywhere already)

as you might not want to repeat someone elses rep comment on a member but you do fully agree and have nothing more to add you could simply add to it - thumbs up
if someone gave rep with bad reasoning or you simply disagree you can put thumbs down - decreasing its value
if you then still have a new reason not listed yet you can add it the way it worked before

this way every users reputation would rather become a list of things ppl say about him - which are again increased/decreased by the whole community - this way any rep might level out properly

'hes my best friend' reps will probably stay at +1 because noone except for that person really cares about that
'he helped with project xy/created wz/moderates the forum nicely' might increase far above +1 as many might agree with that statement
'hes the best fighter in the world!!!!!' might decrease below 0 as many would probably disagree
vice versa for negative reps

well perhaps allowing thumbs up/down to change the value of the rep by a whole point might be too much and lead to even more rep spamming - the usual notation 'x of y members found this rep appropriate' might be better, allowing you to look for the most agreed on comments
the ratio of agreeing/disagreeing members could then create the actual rep value

so if blue gave silva +2 rep for all his awesome hex achievements and 50 of 100 members agree with that it would amount to a total of +1
and as we all know normal users can only give +1 the usual rep values would range btw 0 and 1 (-1 for negative rep) depending on how many ppl agree

making any sense?

well anyway leave it disabled until we have something of that kind

You can rate somebody's stuff in the corresponding thread, where he showed his work.
actually ... why not? i dont think every user has a general thread listing all his work and i dont think you would allow any member who loves his work to post just that statement in there
i think the rep system should very well be for things such as that - otherwise reasons to give rep would diminish even further, which is not quite the point of the whole thing i belive as i didnt think the reputation page has to be full of user evaluation assessments

and the user abc or i forgot his user name was also abusing the rep system he was asking other users to give him -reps.

in fact i did because i agreed with him being an arse at that time
-.- I like(d) the reputation system... Was a nice and easy way to difference between helpful and idiot users on the one hand and on the other you could simpyl show your admiration (don't know a better word XD) for someone...
