I know you are probably being semi-humorous here but the reputation system is what keeps Code Project competitive today
Well, I don't know if you're being serious or not, but you've obviously missed the point by a very wide margin.

Two things happened simultaneously when CodeProject unleashed the rep system. First, the rep system became a goal unto itself, totally distinct from any underpinning in reality, or whether the member in question has made any true contribution to the community; second - and probably more detrimental - the CodeProject site became a huge online game, complete with rules (that can frequently be circumvented), winners, losers, rewards in the form of rep points, and a shooting gallery (Q&A Forums) that has become very popular for a quick break. Ironically, the rep system itself has probably done more to harm CodeProject's reputation than any other change since the site began.

If by "keeping competitive" you mean lowering the maturity level to that of sniveling teenagers, then yes, I agree with you - we have arrived at that level. So when you talk of "the psychological boost they get out of the rep scores", I have a vision of a new forum devoted entirely to rep points. Pointless and ludicrous, but why not? We already have entire articles devoted to scraping rep points.

The next time you talk to Chris, ask him how many hours he puts into chasing down rep point snafus and complaints. This is the wagging tail of the great CP Game.
Best wishes,
Hans
