There's supposed to be a reputation system?!

I tried posting a reply to thread within 45 seconds of replying to another and it told me I needed 3 rep to do that. WTF?!

A basic feature of NodeBB, which is what these forums use, is reputation system that is dependent on upvotes, which increase reputation. For some reason, the PSO2 Team has decided to not utilize this feature, but keep the default posting restrictions that require reputation to post in succession.

Well it might explain why I can't delete my own posts and that infuriates me.

Posts that are deleted also stay visible, and say "This post has been deleted" in grayed out text instead of what their original post said.

@coldreactive And that has to do with not being able to delete my posts at all how?

How do you even tell what your reputation means or how you got up votes

You can't, since the system isn't on in the forum software

@Ragnawind so it just says it's there when it's not

@Drakaina It did at the time anyway. Not sure if they fixed that or not.

This needs fixed. How do you only need 3 rep? I need 5...

It didn't used to do this, very sus man

@dalamar Edited: I'm honestly starting to think ( with zero proof) it's based on what you post. I posted many times on here before, in succession with zero issue, until I began commenting that the ban issues needs to be properly investigated, in case of false flagged accounts in that other forum thread over in general. Not too long after I posted that, I began having my account flagged as new, and that second I started having issues posting within 180 seconds of other posts. My account is well over a year old, with several thousand posts.

If that's not the case, then someone that's a GM needs to fix this, because it shouldn't be happening to longstanding accounts, especially not to accounts older than six months. Regardless of the actual cause, or reason, it needs to be fixed which is why I made another post about this yesterday. It's irritating.
