"Overtly begging for +Rep, blackmailing for +Rep, buying +Rep, any such attempts at gaming the system will result in your Reputation being reset and your rank being locked. It may also get you permanently banned. It's gonna take a lot of work to cheat this system and I can undo all of your efforts in about 3 clicks so don't bother. Get your Reputation Points honestly and fairly the same way everyone does - by helping your fellow community members!"

Currently some review shops have a rule that requires requesters to +rep them once they get their sig. This constitutes "buying +rep" because you're saying "in order to get this service from me you have to +rep me." However, saying "if you are happy with my work, I'd appreciate a +rep!" would be ok. Basically, you can't REQUIRE it, because then it's buying.

Just to clarify none of you are in trouble at the moment. I just realized this recently and discussed it with Matt and he agreed that requiring +rep for services is a breach of rules. I'm giving a week long grace period for you guys to read this and change up your reviewing rules. If you don't change within this week long grace period your shops will be locked and you will be warned.
