Information Reputation Disabled and How to Avoid it

Q: What is the reputation disabled usergroup?
A: It's a way to deal with people who abuse the reputation system.

Q:
What constitutes reputation abuse?
Any one of several discouraged actions - in roughly ascending order of severity:
  • "Repwhoring" - Getting involved in a circle of friends to rep each other as much as possible and/or continually asking for rep, either with or without contributing something to be repped for.
  • Posting obnoxiously large or offensive images in reputation comments.
  • Leaving nothing but or almost nothing but negitive reputations or repeatedly leaving negative reputation for the same member for no good reason.
  • Revenge negging (Member A neg reps Member B, Member B negs Member A back).
  • Using flaming, cursing, and insults in reputation comments.
  • Leaving someone else's name with a negative rep.

Q: What are the consequences of being rep disabled?

A: You will not be able to give or recieve reputation from or to anyone for the duration of your rep ban. If you were a senior member, your PM and avatar allowances will revert back to normal user levels.


Q: How longs do rep bans last? Will I get a warning?


A: It depends on the type of rep abuse and the discretion of the moderator. Usually not less than two weeks. Frequent flaming in reputation and missigning reps can get you permanently disabled without warning. Since a rep ban does not restrain you from any other aspect of the forum, it's regarded as much less severe than a ban and can be placed without warning.


Q: What is the difference between rep disabled and disabled rep?

A: The former is a restriction from repping, the latter is making it so that others cannot see your rep bars, nor your rep-acquired title (like "is Celestial" or such).
