This is the only situation where I can see a unified Mark working on numerous reputations.
I think you may have misinterpreted what I was saying. I have no desire to see a unified mark, I can see a logic in doing so, but I certainly see the reasons why they would remain seperate. My only concern was with removing the extra commodities required to fill out a reputation project, leaving the only requirement marks (omega marks for Omega rep, romulan marks for Romulan, etc.,). In doing so it would address what, to me anyway, makes the reputation feel like unfun busywork.
I went up to T3 on one of my characters before the tedium of filling in boxes became too boring. I still play STFs and romulan PVE missions on all eight of my regularly played toons because I enjoy it, I just don't bother with the reputation system any more as I gain no satisfaction or fun with it. Streamlining the reputation system by not requiring commodities would remove much of the tedium I associate with it.
