The total undoubtedly draws from the MTF join date. Back when the system was started, I doubt anyone thought about maximum values. In fact, I know from asking a veteran that back then the dots were even in play - not as now, when most newcomers go straight from one to ten green dots on their first rep. But it turned out that after a few years points accumulated and became big numbers indeed.
Cheers. Also bemused by the fact that there are 11 green dots by avatars with everyone (that isn't entirely useless) having 5 dark green, 6 light green. Nice, and er... round.

If you get a good rep from a person in the negative, does this take off points?

Litotes, you are such a nerd. (I mean that in a good way.)

That's a good question. We need a guinea pig. Anyone wanna offer himself for this experiment?

I would do it. Stop giving me bad reps, until I am below, then give me good reps back.

Interesting question. I assume it will be like getting from a person with zero. In this case you probably get two or three points. The "rounding error" I talked about on page one is probably what you get no matter what, the formula being "1% + 2" or "1% + 3". But I could be wrong.

Also, thanks for your information about bad rep reducing maximum. I thought this would happen, but I wan't sure if the number simply got "locked" once you maxed out

Getting you down below zero would be a herculean task indeed, considering the rep limitations present and also your arsenal of goodreppable posts and the large amount of posters unware of this project. No, it would have to be a much newer poster. Or a very unpopular one.

Alright, the experiment is now open for registration to all posters who have a reputation below 20 million points.

Nice experiment Litotes. I appreciate it when people are interested in intricate things, as well!

Thanks

Unfortunately I wasn't online when you posted, there is a risk you have been repped by others in the meantime, but I have now repped you and your total ought to increase by 12933767 or 12933768 points if our theory holds.
