Should posting on Meta affect reputation?

+6
−0

When we launched this community, we did not yet have the ability to set different reputation grants for different categories. We've had this for a while but we failed to follow up before now, sorry.

Do you want us to change posts on Meta to not award rep for upvotes or subtract it for downvotes? This change would be retroactive, though not immediately -- the next time a certain custodial script runs, reputation levels would be adjusted to remove rep gained from Meta.

Update 2023-09-05: This question has one highly-voted answer and no visible disagreement, so barring any objections in the next day or two, I'll plan to remove meta rep by the end of the week. I'll update here when I do, or if a reason arises not to.

Update 2023-09-14: I've made the configuration change. A recalculation script still needs to run, after which everyone's reputation will reflect only votes from Q&A and not from Meta. This might take a couple days; we'll tag status-complete when that's done.
