Default Rep counter?

Why dont we do it just like on oc.net? I like when it actually says the number of rep, not just the dots. Anyone agree?

Another note o0n the REP counter. It really should be a Tachometer if it can be done

I second that idea.

Yes! although overclock and carsforum can be alike, they should look unique..the tachometers sounds l33t (oops.. can't say that)

The only way I can think of doing the tachometer is to have it in "stages"

For example.... at some point we'll have some nut like BigVal get 7,000 reps or whatever.

Here's what you have to consider:
1) How high will the tachometer go? Will it have an "E" on one side and an "F" once you hit 1,000 reps or something?

2) How many different images are we talking about here? A new image every 50 reps?

3) You also have to consider bandwidth. If we use a tachometer it'd basically be like another "avatar."

...Just things to think about.

Admin, if you need someone to design the tachometer and have 50-rep increments or something, just let me know how you want it to look, the increments, the size, etc.

It could either be like the flame system on overclock.net, and have it so that when you fill up one tach you get another that's back at zero, or if that would be too complicated, what if it were like the old Ghz post count system? Once you got to 4ghz, even if you posted more it didnt go any higher. Once you get to a preset redline, your needle wouldn't go any higher.

Those are my 2 cents.
