I wasn't talking about paying for rep. I was speaking of two different scenarios:
tomyam80: Oh man... if ppl hv 2 start paying 2 get rep or extra rep i think this wld really be hilarious as that wld totally defeat the purpose of hving rep n the 1st place. They might as well scrap it all together.
A) GOG introduces a paywall which forces you to make a purchase of $5 to use the chat/forum, but they make it not only for new users, meaning existing users who've already bought well over $5 now get their chat/forum access revoked until they pay $5*
B) GOG introduces a repwall whereby you need 50 rep to use the forum/chat, except instead of setting it so that your rep value has to equal 50 or higher, they set it so that you need to GAIN 50 rep, so in other words, literally nobody can use it until they get an extra 50 rep, which is now impossible, meaning the whole forum is shut down for everybody*
*Except Galaxy users, that is.
