I seem to remember that the Dyson Reputation was the benchmark of a revamp of the reputation system.
Do I remember correctly?
If it is the case, does anybody know how that benchmark went (from developers point of view I mean)?
Can I expect a revamp of the other older reputation?
I don't know what is the general sentiment towards the Dyson reputation but I like it very much: I don't have much time to play and that commendation token is a blessing.
I can spend a little amount of time doing something for my commendation and then get the rest of the time to do what I want: may it be STF or a foundry mission!
Well, I suppose everyone has a personal opinion and I just wanted to state mine.
What i really would like to know, as I already said is if I can reasonably expect a revamp of the old reputations
Pitifully. So we can expect another nukara instead if another Dyson.

I know how you feel. It seems generally that the devs want us only to play one char, there is very little support for multi - character - playing.
They hurt the selfie or their income at least as much as us, if they would be any smart they would want every one to play at least 3 chars...
But i admit, dyson may have been a little too easy.
Meh, I still consider the Omega rep the benchmark. In terms of flexibility and value for time spent, nothing beats the elite stfs when I can do 3 of them in 20 minutes, have enough marks for a whole weeks worth of rep, and dilithium and gear to boot. Compared to Dyson I have to log in every day for the daily commendation or use the awful conversion rate of 350 marks for 5 days of rep. Sure, the battlezone has great dilithium rewards too but between leechers and finding one with a good mix of people, it's much more of a hassle. Plus, the borg and maco sets are way more useful than any of the Dyson gear. The only good thing about Dyson is the free box for filling up the rep project and the removal of the commodities requirement, that's about it.
As has been mentioned, the Dyson reputation was deemed a failure because their 'metrics' indicate people are already finished with it and they want something to keep people playing until the next update(which may have had an influence in the anniversary event being structured into the event reputation in such a drawn-out way).
That said, I disagree with that conclusion. I still have characters that I'm working on the Dyson Reputation, and I'm still having fun with the battleground - even with all the tagging nonsense/drama. Furthermore, I am working on it, here and there, with ALL of my characters. I keep playing all of my characters because of the Dyson Rep, and thus consider what I might want to purchase for each of them.
By comparison, I have two characters at tier 5 Nukara.. the rest are at 0(the only reason the two of them are at Rank 5 is because of Risa birds - I cannot stomach the Nukara grind in its current incarnation). I haven't progressed my Omega reputations on my characters in probably half a year - some have finished it before then, some are halfway through it. Most of my characters are either finished with New Romulus Reputation or nearly there - solely because I enjoy doing the Tau Dewa (space combat oriented-)Patrols so much.
If the Dyson Rep was as Draconic as the Nukara Reputation was/is, I highly doubt I would be playing the game nearly as much. Very possible I wouldn't have picked up the Mogh, and probably wouldn't be currently waiting for an overdue Zen promotion to sink some more money into the game before the Dyson Ships are released.
