We want to disable reputation (tied to people) on our community. We have issues with people trying to game for "points" and that creates an unhealthy environment. We don't want people to have points (post counts are fine, people know what those are and what they mean.)
When we disabled reputation, all it did was turn off up and down voting on threads and posts, which is not what we wanted. We still need posts and threads to get voted on so that people know what is good and can communicate when they like or dislike something. The reputation is still there for people, which is bad since it is now locked to the last time the up and down votes were still on.
So the disable reputation doesn't disable reputation, but does disable voting. This is backwards to us. Everyone is hounding me that they need their voting. How can we actually disable reputation but not cripple the site in the process?
