Do you think this is a good idea?

A while back, Matt and Flash implemented a +rep threshold to prevent people from abusing the system by spam +rep'ing undeserving posts. Prior to +rep being tied to promotions, +rep "farming" wasn't really a problem.

However, today you are limited to 10 +rep per person. As a long time user of MobaFire, I have capped my +rep thresholds for numerous users, and I find it a shame that I can't show appreciation for their post through the +rep option.

My suggestion is to reset the cap every year, or six months. During the entire stay of a member on MobaFire, it can be rare to +rep someone ten times, so I can understand if this idea isn't considered "necessary". But it's just a suggestion. My query would be: how can the +rep system be improved so that this +rep restriction isn't in place?

I can relate to this, there are several people who make useful contributions to the site, but I can't reward them anymore. I understand that there's a limit, but I suppose giving someone 1 +rep every week would be fine too.

I can see this being annoying, but you're right that it's not a problem for many users, and even then it's not a big deal. I will mention it to Matt though and see what he thinks / if it would be easy to reset the +reps counting towards that threshold every so often.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
