Rules are fantastic, I've seen a marked change in the forum already, Its a little less angry. I do support a different type of rep system... maybe one based off forum posts vs replys. Newcomers to the forums might see the numbers and stars and attribute the wrong idea towards posters.. or treat some with -1000 rep as a person to ignore and not listen too.
also random thought, I would love to see the GOG Staff Wishlists included with there avatar like some of ours is.
What a better way to get to know someone then to view their wish list ^_^
