    I don't have a huge amount of rep as some users seem to have :(, (in fact I lost 50% of my rep with the new system).
    But I did like the idea of a respected user having a lot more say than some other user.
    SEMrush
    I am curious, what prompted you to change the system? I didn't know that there was something wrong with it.

    All the General Chat rep whores died. :) I think Mella was top 5 in rep and now she is like #50 (sorry Mella! heh).

    It was starting to be abused by people that pretty much stay in the "throw away" forums. Under the new system the "respected" (high-rep) users actually have less power, as there is a cap on how much rep they can give (or take) with a single hit.

    That will prevent someone from going into the red with a single hit from one of those users for example.

    Amen. Good to show who actually has authority in what they say rather than who is the biggest chatterbox. Good job Shawn!

    It looks a lot more balanced now. The people that have helped me the most here are all up there now. There was no way that I should have had the most rep in an SEO forum. That's like me having a black belt and kung fu grip on SEOChat.

    I guess it's time for me to whip out the old SEO help so people don't think I'm a rep whore chatterbox.

    This isn't really an SEO forum though. It's more of a ||||||ll||| ||llllll|||||| |||||ll ||||||ll forum.

    Kudos Shawn - very nice; the underground thread on this issue will certainly be abuzz now :)

    I tried to rep you but I gave out too many reds to some spammers and some to a few awesome posters ... so all I have to give for now is kudos and some well deserved respect for a solid, smart decision.

    Now ... onto posting :)

    I think 94% of my reps to others has been, "HA HA HA HA :D -rob"

    I have about ten auto-completes that start w/ "HA HA....."
