Is the reputation gained from Unicoins permanent? If so, I don't think that's a good idea. People can just essentially buy reputation, skewing the trust ratio.

Not that high rep essentially means you're automagically right, but there is a higher sense of trust from accounts with high reputation. Not to mention it's hard earned.

Or is this just an April Fools joke that went completely over my head? lol..

Only the user who buys the powers can see that his reputation has increased. Others will still see the original reputation. I guess this powers will be removed from tomorrow.
