    Trying to rep someone I last repped 6 1/2 months ago (unless I missed an entry), and it still says I need to spread it around more before repping them again.

    Is this behaving as designed? What are the restrictions?

      You need to rep 40 different people before you can rep the same person again.

        Just rep/neg random good/awful posts you see around the forums. I like the new system because it practically forces you to rep posts by random users rather than just the people you know

          Was that increased to 40 recently? I vaguely recall being able to rep the same person at a much shorter limit.

            The new restrictions were added 2 weeks ago :yes:

            Thanks, but I've got better things to do other than going looking for people to rep. I'll abandon the system entirely.

            What was it before?

            It's a bit irritating to people who spend the majority of their time in the smaller sub-forums.

            It used to be every 28 days before repping the same user again.

            Personal rep (through profiles) worked correctly at 40 users until the next rep. With post ratings you only had to wait a day before repping the same person again, though this was a bug and never meant to be the case.
