Another Reputation System v1.5

Extremely flexible modification for FluxBB 1.5.3 and above. Tested on my heavily modified 1.5.3 forum, and a clean version of 1.5.7, both with the exact same results. Note that it should be compatible between these versions, but hasn't been tested apart from on those two.

- When reputation wasn't enabled, the query for the total poster's reputation was still carried out and displayed. This is now fixed.
- Changed if/elseif to case/switch in viewtopic.php
- MUCH cleaner code, also faster.
- Removed all extra database queries in viewtopic.php - from now on, the reputation is collected along with the original query for posts. Due to this change, a column called 'reputation' is now present in the 'users' and 'posts' tables.
- Changed XmlHttpRequest to jQuery (no-cache) ajax request via GET. There were several bugs with the old method - for one, it cached the GET request meaning if you changed your vote twice, nothing would happen, and two, XmlHttpRequest is deprecated.
- Reputation now checks for reputation abuse, and alerts the mailing list if found. The amount is configurable through the admin panel.
- Database structure has changed, and is much more optimised. For all users using this mod, run the reputation upgrade plugin to update your database structure. For further support please refer to the reputation support topic.
- Reputation from/given by users is now shown on profile.php rather than in reputation.php. Due to this change, reputation.php has been modified, and moved to the /include/ folder. For more information on files needed to upgrade, please refer to the support topic (particularly the post below).
- Sections for viewing reputation given/received by users have been merged into one section
- Removed more redundant language strings
- 100% compatible with FluxBB 1.5.8
- Checks for non-english language files when reputation is enabled
