Why not to have it but not enabled by default.

Why would you want that? Including a feature, but not enable it by default sounds really useless. Why would it make sense to implement such a feature, if you let it sleep somewhere in the acp. :|

This sounds like it would be better as a MOD/Plugin. Should be rather simple to install once we have all of the hooks figured out for 3.2. 3.1 will be a big step in that direction. In any case it would end up being the same thing. You want this feature? Download it and place the files on your site...done (well that's the idea anyways). :)

hummm ... does this mean that this suggestion has been refused by the phpBB3 development team?
And removing it will make no change in database, just upload the file to FTP, nothing more nothing less.

I think you would need one or two extra tables, but that doesn't need to alter the original phpBB3 tables (perhaps a mod could require it). But just look around if you found a mod for that. Adding one or two mods doesn't make your board incompatible to new releases of phpBB.

No...but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting to see if they'll add a reputation system into base. I seriously doubt it. Plus reputation systems aren't exactly all that popular.

Isn't reputation system is equal to like/dislike or voting system?

...which is basically the same as a reputation system and isn't a standard-needed feature either?

A PhpBB isn't Facebook. People tend to forget that.
