You could always combine the two:

Possibly now that the system is new and everyone has similar reputation, but that's a very short term situation. Since the actual number has little meaning outside the context of how it relates to the reputation of the rest of the LQ populace, my current thinking is that a visual representation that contextualizes the number easily makes sense. It's something I'm going to think more about and re-evaluate once we have good data though.

That's effectively what we do now, although you need to hover over the dot to get the hard number.

On a side note, is each act of giving somebody more reputation worth exactly 10 reputation points or does it depend on WHO gives the reputation?

"Yes" votes to "Did you find this post helpful?" will now increase a members rep, but will do so by 50% of what manually positively repping them would have.

Sorry, I was at work and couldn't follow the thread properly.
You can take away the last bits of my reputation. I deserve to be a disgraced man

Besides the style/layout discussion, how exactly do these blocks represent numbers?

You have 5 dark green (=500) and 6 light green (=1200) totals 1700. Where did the other 304 (317 by now and probably going up) go? Or isn't this dynamic?

If coloured blocks are going to be used, which values/method is going to be implemented. Are there any other XXX / YYYY dots, is there a limit to the amount of dots, stuff like that.

The thread is getting quite long, so it's entirely understandable.

SHHHHHHHH! Jeremy is watching, but seriously I would have added the difference back.........except suddenly both of our reputations are showing as disabled here. I'm not sure if that's intentional or a bug. They were working previous to me clicking the not helpful button.
