I’d just remove this scoring system entirely, because it simply encourages spam (of tags/ratings/whatever). Instead, I’d go on community-based ranking: I rank other users because of their work (replies, articles on the wiki, etc.), eventually with something like “you have X points each day to rank other people” where X depends on your current score.

Something like that is expected to come up in future.
