    The default reputation system ranges from -2000 to +3000, with 15 levels, which raises the question of how many levels actually make sense. The default reputation descriptions are often difficult to distinguish between (is "Foo is a name known to all" better or worse than "Foo has much to be proud of"? - I can't tell) and, bizarrely, one of the negative rep descriptions sounds like high praise. Come to that, the description for somebody with zero reputation ("Foo has a spectacular aura") sounds much more fulsome than it ought to be.

    I agree that "licks the chutney spoon" should be in there; the only question is whether it's positive or negative

    There you go, you made it onto a list.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    The reputation system allows you to vote for or against other people's posts. (You can also enter a reason for your vote.)

    The votes for and against are aggregated and used to derive a score which is mapped to a description, which is then displayed with that user's posts. Over time, the idiots will gain more insulting descriptions and those who generally manage to make a useful contribution will get something more fulsome.

    There are various controls to prevent the usual suspects from trying to game the system with their sockpuppets: for example, you can only vote on a fairly small number of posts a day, and once you have voted on a user you have to record a number of votes on other users before you can vote again on the original user.

    The "post count" bit is about restoring posts in Light Relief to the post count system: expect Zeity's contributions to TPD to cause his recalculated count to overflow the space allotted in the database
