I would like to see either mods, or mods and the people with over 100 rep points be able to rep in the lounge. I know why rep is not allowed in the lounge, and I totally agree, because I could see it getting out of hand, but not if only these people could do it. The kinds of posts in the lounge that deserve rep points are the ones where someone asks for help with homework, or asks a question about how something works, etc. I know you can rep by finding a post they did someplace else, but that kinda defeats the purpose of not repping in the lounge and takes a bit of effort not everyone is willing to place forward.
I know why rep is not allowed in the lounge, and I totally agree,
see the rep pt syndicate for how easily its abused.
"This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole.
"A doctor passes by and the guy shouts 'Hey you. Can you help me?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole.
"Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up. The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole.
"Then a friend walks by. The friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.'"
I've never given any nerps(never needed to), but I have given out warnings instead.
I can understand what the OP is suggesting. Some people who post in the lounge only post in the lounge. It's hard to rep them when you have to go back through 2+ years of posts to find one that in a rep-enabled area of the board.

Advanced search on their user name and select the forums in which reps are enabled.
Some folks in the Lounge use it for everything, including freebies, hot deals, and tech support, because they feel comfortable there. They should be encouraged to use the appropriate sections and not rewarded with rep points for not doing so.
