Looking at the race results drivers will see a where they can give Rep ("reputation") to other drivers for any positive experience in-race, such as giving room, showing patience, sportsmanship, etc.
Be generous. So you encountered a lapped driver for just a couple corners ... Did he keep his cool? Share the track? Give Rep. So you're said lapped driver ... Did the car behind wait and pick a good spot? Give Rep.
Reward your fellow drivers for any instance of gentlemanly racecraft. Send a signal, show what's appreciated.

Yea I noticed that I did 3 times, I clicked him once and nothing happened so I clicked twice more and finally greyed out

Geez, I can't leave you guys alone for a minute ... :-)
I've fixed the Rep voting to recognize one click only, and removed the duplicate Reps so the ratings are whole again, back to 1:1.

Yeah, I realised that as well. If you double or triple click on the + sign, it will register multiple amounts before it greys out. Normal browser latency bug, I don't think there is really anything that can be done about it.
Can adjust the code to check and auto correct only one click from a single member per event after the greyed out period I guess. May or may not be complicated.

Seems there is still a bug or 2, I have seen drivers getting more than +1 rep from 1 other driver in the same event.
Example: David Nannen repped Tommy Nilsson +3 in GPManagerPro Watkins Glen FBMW.

Could this Rep function be applied to uploaded garage setups?

My sixpence worth ..... Good call to not implement a '-' rep function. There is enough experience in clans/clubs etc to show how damaging it could and sadly, most likely, would be.
My feeling is, that for most members, the '+' rep function will encourage already good behaviour to continue and be promoted. Perhaps, a minority may decide it is not for them. Hey .... no worries ...it's all good.
Seems to me this '+' rep function is there by way of saying "thanks ... well done on track, keep it up!". It is that quick and effective way, post race, to give your competitor a nod!
Whilst I appreciate the logic in calls for a '-' rep function ... the fact is we already have it in the form of the R2P steward process.
Conor McCarrell's [#24] last paragraph says it best.

Well I'm happy I do not race in a place that fosters such an environment. I sure would hate to have everyone pick on me because I made an honest mistake on track (and it certainly would not be "fun" for me).
Anyway, this feature is for positive appreciation. If you have a negative note regarding a driver, I suggest a private message to that member or the protest procedure if it happens to be a rule violation.

I could care less about not getting any plusses so I disagree with that statement. And I can't be bothered to give everyone plusses for behaving on track. I'd only give ones for extraordinary events.
Being able to give people a negative would allow other drivers to know who to watch out for on the track, and it would simply be more fun. :D
It would also allow for three levels...Plus(You did something great), nothing(you behaved on track), negative(You did something stupid or not nice)

This program really is not intended to be wrecker-revenge or member-humiliation. Give a + to those who deserve it... and those that do not get many +'s will begin to ask themselves "I wonder why not?" and begin corrective actions on their own.
Not giving him a + gets the same message across without all the negativity.

I agree with Bob...after todays Saleen race I could negative the guy that rammed me. ;P

Of course Conor. I was just breaking balls. As Doug said, the fact that someone might get no Rep for an event is enough to let them know they werent very nice on the track. Case in point right here. I was struggling with the wrong setup and slow, but with a slightly faster Fabcar than the NAGTs, so I was awkwardly trying to stick it in where I wasnt supposed to, and got no Rep at all because of it. In my earlier ARCA event, with all of the cars equal, I was letting cars go by that I knew I couldnt race with, and got a ton of Rep for it.

If you've been around R2P long enough, you would realize that Tim and Todd would not be foolish enough to give a whining tool for sim racers. At the end of the day, a dislike button would just allow sim racers to point the finger at other people for the most trivial of incidents on track. The stewards and admins know who the trouble makers are at R2P from the protests we get and from what we see on track.
Protesting or privately confronting someone for a legitimate incident on track is not hard. If you aren't willing to go to those lengths to raise a red flag about a certain driver, then your concerns about said driver are likely not valid to begin with.

+1 Samuel, although I wouldn't mind seeing all the negative reps the drivers I race against has. :)

Great Idea Todd
To comment my thought about the minus button can only cause bad issues. At Gametrailers when I was an Admin there it was ciaos amongst unhappy members because of the minus button as you call it and only causes a member to leave and the fighting doesn't stop there.. If you didn't earn a plus then no plus was earned seemed to be the only solution to stop members from fighting.
Negativity is never a good thing in a community.
My 2 cents of experience.
