I have made the decision to rework the forum voting system. It has been changed to a reputation system, meaning there are positive votes that increase your reputation by 1 point, neutral votes that don't change your reputation level, and negative votes which will lower your reputation points by 1. With these changes there will be some new rules applied to them asking for rep will result in your reputation being set to 0 and a warning point will be applied to your account. I have also re-enabled negative votes for all staff members abuse of the reputation system by giving false reputation will result in a warning being applied to your account and that false rep point will be removed.
