Here are some guidelines that are meant to prevent misuse of the reputation system:
# Reputation points are to be given for post that are extra good and valuable for the community in some way.
# Reputation points should be given in the thread it is intended for.
# Reputation points are not supposed to be given for actions outside the public forum, If someone helps you via PM, Email or in another way, send them a gift not reputation because that is not what the reputation system is meant for. This is due to the fact that rep should be given for things that benefit the entire community and that are available to the entire community
Members who are suspected to misuse of the system or use it in a way that it was not intended can have their reputation power reduced or removed. This will still allow the user to use all other parts of the forum. It will just restrict the possibility of giving rep.
Serious offense may result in a ban.

Do as I say. Not as I do.
