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..

  • Of course it's permanent! For the next six to eight weeks, that is. Apr 1, 2014 at 12:32

  • Oh, ok. Well, those were son well earned downvotes on my part. lol Apr 1, 2014 at 4:12

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.
