How can I adjust the default Reputation awarded for an upvote?
The default installation gives a user 1 reputation per upvote. How could I change the source code to give them say 10 reputation per upvote?
I am going through the source code myself now and will post here if I can figure it out.
Appreciate everyone's help.

Here we play with the reputation value (upvotes and downvotes) and change their weight. It can help you do want you want or even fit your needs.
@jarey thanks for pointing out that plugin. I had misinterpreted it's functionality before. When I saw "Max upvote weigh (points)" I assumed you could only use that configuration to scale the upvote-to-reputation ratio based on the reputation of the user doing the voting.
For others that run into a similar issue. Using the plugin Jarey pointed out, if you'd like to make 1 upvote = 10 reputation I was able to do that by setting:
Max upvote weigh (points) = 9
Since the default weight is 1 upvote = 1 reputation, and this plug in then adds the additional 9 reputation.
