Very likely not. There will be an entirely new reputation engine in Narrative so porting over ranking from here isn't realistic and probably not fair to newbies coming into Narrative.
I can see how ranking won't make sense in the release reputation system, but surely some of the work folks are doing here will translate into some aspect of that new system?
Speaking of fairness - I don't think newbies would be too concerned over people already having established reputations if they have been around for many months longer than them. That's the nature of things - newcomers have to prove themselves, old timers already have. The unfair thing would be to wipe the slate completely clean out of concern for newbies. If we do that then we'd have to do it over and over: newbies will be coming to the platform continuously... wanting to be fair to them will mean repeatedly forgetting the reputations of those that came before them?
