I asked a question earlier about rep power (which turned out to be about rep points) here http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.p...putation+power
As was established, your post count and years on VB forums go toward your rep power.
Shouldn't your reputation count too? For example for every 200 reputation you get +1 rep power. Reputation points should have a priority over post count and years as a member because they tell more about a persons credibility.
Just a thought.
