I am sure that this posting isn't going to be well received by some of the more "veteren" members, but here we go anyways...
I'm aware that in the past, reputation points were awarded to members for posts in non-technical forums/sub-forums, such as the Community Center.
For some time now, reputation points are not being awarded in these categories which is fine. I think that most would agree with that. However, the more veteran members (many of which no longer participate) were able to rack up quite a bit of reputation points over the years in these categories.
I think it would be interesting to see what the new rank would be if all of the reputation points awared from non-technical forums were removed. I bet a handful of the newer members from the last 2-3 years (excluding myself-as my count is not as impresive...) would rise to the top ten list immediately. You all know who they are....
That would seem fair. And yes, in the grand scheme of life, I understand that the vote count, reputation points, and skill endorsements are not that important so this post is not meant to start a controversy, and I'm not whining here. I was just curious if the administrators of this site had ever considered this.
The good thing is that if you dont agree with this post, the worst case scenario for me is that you can only down-vote me, rather than affect my reputation... I hope you resist to down-vote this post... :P
