    And your rep points decrease by 0.98 every 100 days of inactivity.
    Not quite. Your score multiplies by 0.98 each day after the first 100 days of inactivity.

    Yeah, I know I shouldn't know this - so sue me.

    We need to make sure they're treating TSR right though!
    They might ruin the site. What if one day every user gets A*'s? it will become boring.

    Not really. :dontknow: It's a 2 percent decrease each day.

    I remember spotify95 once asked on behalf of a banned friend how quickly his ten gems would take to disappear completely, and it worked out to be more than 500 days. If someone didn't log in for that many days by choice, chances are they don't give a **** about their rep anyway.

    Lol true, also there would come a time where you become less repped and therefore it just stands still like no one cares.

    Until a certain age/maturity level, sure.

    The upper limit is twelve gems, so once somebody reaches that, repping them makes no difference at all to their gems, though their score would keep increasing, meaning that it would take longer for their gems to evaporate in the event of a prolonged absence.

    But I do take your point: at some point, it's going to be decided(/recognised) that rep is pretty much worthless if every active user has 10+ gems. Either that or they'll start calling them 'activity gems', since that's all they indicate in the absence of negs: time spent making posts on TSR.
