Minor Forum Bug: Post "Reactions" Effects on Reputation

Every single reaction to a post gives +1 Reputation / karma to the poster, even the "thumbs down", the "bored", (and the removed "angry") reactions. I think the "confused" reaction used to do the same before they added the others and removed "angry", but now it no longer does.

"Confused" neither adds nor removes reputation points. The negative reactions need to all do the same as it, or "confused" needs to go back to +1, for the sake of logical consistency (I know this is a very minor, non-urgent issue I just want to bring awareness of this to the peeps @ WG)

 

EDIT: "Sad" reaction also does not give a rep point

Those options never gave +1. The ability to reduce forum rep was removed before the game went live.

If that's true then why did I just increase your karma/rep from 6,197 to 6,198 by giving you a thumbs down?

Hmm I appear to be wrong lol. I just tried it on your post. I wonder when this changed? Well at the moment I guess rep just stands for reaction count rather than upvotes.

Its like Youtube videos. Even the most thumbs downed video can be high on the search list due to engagement. If people love to hate your video it ends up as a popular video. So its just popular for a reason you may not like. That is a legit strategy on youtube.
