I decided to enable the reputation system. To the right of everyone's posts (Right next to their avatar/profile), you should see plus and minus sign links. Click on the plus sign to give someone positive reputation points, and the minus sign to get negative points. Simple enough.
If you started a topic, you'll notice that everyone's replies have a "Thanks" icon next to the "Quote" icon. If you find a reply to your topic helpful, click on that to thank them with four reputation points instead of just one.
Special thanks to Jober for being my personal lab rat while testing this out.
Hope you enjoy the new feature!
