I love it how people are LITERALLY whining about rep.
It's just a bar below your name.
It does nothing, most people don't even think twice about that tiny bar over there.
Sure, it may be annoying to see red things in your User CP. But nevertheless, it isn't going to harm you. This is not DeviantArt, this is not your dumb roleplaying forums where you require reputation to be popular. Stop acting as if reputation is everything in these forums.
You wanna know what's cool in these forums that people would care about? Userbars.
Now start joining in events and get those things.
