I think this is needed. It can open many doors for a variety of other things we can do with BitShares, namely some kind of marketplace even though we already have multiple ones around so no need to reinvent the wheel, lending or insurance?
So first, do you think this is needed for BitShares?
If yes, do you think this should be a priority or not? Don't forget the issues we need to solve first in the upcoming releases.
Second, what kind of reputation system would be better?
A. 1 rep point per user? People could easily abuse this to vote others down
B. 1 rep point per BTS? Could balance things out. Just like how delegates are voted in. A mad whale could destroy someone's reputation, even though that person is legit. Or do you think long term the community would balance things out? What about Voting Apathy? If someone builds up rep and performs an exit scam, the community could be too slow to react and he could scam multiple people while he isn't voted down?
C. 1 rep point per user with more than X BTS on their account. Kind of solves both of the problems above, however, not completely the first one I guess, it's just a matter of distributing your BTS through multiple accounts.
Should rep points one user can give be proportional to the reputation points he has? For example, a user with 100 reputation points would be more influentional than a user with 50 rep points. Would this be fair, could this be abused? What do you think?
