Re: Reputation For Authors

Why is there no give reputation directly to the author of a book. For clarification I dont mean just randomly giving rep to a person, but if you are one a book and you really enjoy it there should be a feature where you could give the "book" rep. Maybe a little button right under the follow Author button when you open the main page of a fiction.

From the "Level Up" blog guide, the reasoning was to keep authors from staying shut-in their own story-worlds. If an author wants rep, they need to venture out to the forums and fictions from other authors.  

For what it's worth I agree; I catch myself looking for the rep button when they reply to a reader's comment in a particularly thoughtful or funny way. As an appreciative reader, if you want to rep an author you can look through their post history and rep something you like, or similarly use their reputation to find links to comments they've made on other works.
