Help me with a small rep experiment

Whenever I receive a rep, I notice the movements in the rep points. I became curious as to how many rep points I can dish out myself. So I wondered if anyone would help me find out. A volunteer can post his/her current rep points total, either by writing it in or by way of a screenshot. When I see this, I will immediately goodrep you (unless you're one of the people I repped this weekend, the system prevents me from repeating reps so soon) and afterwards you can post your new total.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

I'm seeing the pattern here, it's 1% of your total.

Thanks! That means you get 1% of my points, with some strange rounding off at the end (12 262 013 would have been closer).

Re: Help me with a small rep experiment

And now I have 1245074073

That is a movement of 18872725. Once again, slightly above 1%. The rounding factor is interesting.

Someone a long time ago said there was a maximum value. Maybe you've reached it?

Do you see my rep on the page? It doesn't update when you look at it. You'll have to go somewhere else and then come back. Either that, or you've reached a theoretical maximum, which would be interesting in itself.

Yeah I received the reps from both you guys. The total is still the same. I can't rep either of you unfortunately since I must spread it around more first

Re: Help me with a small rep experiment

So, the experiment is a success.

Each time you rep someone he/she is added/subtracted 1% of your total.
The maximum rep value you can reach is 2147483647 points.
