Most people on these sites seem to think that rep is everything in this world.
It is not.
Wasn't the original reason for these sites to help people who did not want to pay for the other site?
There must be a way for users (not using bounties) to shed some unwanted reputation onto people they believe deserve it.
That way those people's answers and questions might just get more attention then those with higher rep.
I see that since I have almost 47K rep, that people who have even under than 1K sometimes come up with much much greater answers than I do, and while I want to leave my answer up, and I upvote their answers because of it's awesomeness, my answer still is usually upvoted more and accepted due to my reputation.
Maybe can we add something like LinkedIn has where you can vouch for another user stating how much knowhow they have on a certain tag, and if a user gets X number of other users (who have such and such reputation n a tag), that when that user posts on that tag there is something symbolizing him as very knowledgable on a topic.
Yes, I do have 47K rep, but that does not mean that I know anything about c# and when there comes a time and I am new to a different tag community, I want to know who is the best at it in the tag (and not just by going to the "top users" tag page), and basing it on reputation is useless, as you can see by me (where I have 47K rep, but no knowledge at all of c#).
