Reputation is the points of all of the company's sites, and I need them to unlock "goodies" in the website(s). I wonder how it got its name other than "points", and the definition is reputation is:
noun: the beliefs or opinions that are generally held about someone or something.
It seems weird that they replaced the common word for this as "reputation". I want to know because:
- "Reputation" and "Points" have an excellent comparison and contrast about each other.
- The badges on the websites go great with "Points".
- Reputation is like downvotes, like -1, when playing a game, and it is super rare.
- "Points"' definition is:
(in sports and games) a mark or unit of scoring.
So, why is reputation used as points for a particular unlockable?
