A lot of information about reputation is scattered around so I thought it'd be easier for everyone if there was a thread explaining everything about it in one spot.

Some people will use reputation for determining someone's history of credibility, and others may just have fun showing props for a good post. To leave someone reputation points just find the scale icon (:rep:) in the top right corner of their post. Click it and show them some love. It can even be as simple as "Fo' shizzle!" or "Hell yeah!". You can give reputation points 10 times in a day. If your reputation drops below 10 points you will not be able to give others props until you rise back above 10 points. The more reputation points you have, the higher your Reputation Power and the more points you give others when you give them reputation points. Rep Power = the maximum amount of points you give others when you give them reputation.

Ways to gain Rep Power:
Post 100 Times - You get 1 point of Rep Power for every 100 posts
Stay Active - You get 1 point of Rep Power for every 90 days you are an active member
Receive points - For every 100 points you receive from peers you'll gain 1 point of Rep Power

Now, when you give someone points you have to choice to give them your maximum amount or as few as you would like. Also, if you want to see your reputation points and comments for a certain post, click :rep: and it'll show you the posts reception, the comments you received for that post, and your total points. You can also check your comments by going to User CP and scrolling down to the bottom.

Before you were required the spread Reputation to five different people. It's now been changed to two people.

The green bits are the Rep Power as described in the first post. You get more by: posting 100 times, receiving 100 points from us, or posting everyday for 90 days. :thumbs:

Yeah, I'm confused too... Can someone post today's guidelines for :rep:? I can only give the same amount of rep points, I can't give more or less. Also, I'm not getting a new square every 100 posts or every 90 days active. And what does a blue dot mean (instead of green) when you look at the rep points given to you on the User Control Panel (Settings)? :shrug: help :-S

You guys are assuming 1 point equals 1 Green Box, when it's actually 100 Rep Points for every Green Box. If you post 100 times, you get 1 point not 1 Green Box.

10,000 posts = level up!

I don't think you could convince even the most hardcore World of Warcraft addict to follow that through, lol.

Is it still 1 bar for every 100 points? I'm over 800 but only have 7 bars.

No, it's different as the rep point gets higher. After 650 pts, the next box to appear will be when you get 1000. I guess it'll be a good idea to post an update on the first post with what is needed for another box. I'll do that later.

I didn't realize that! Can't wait to see the full list!

What's next after 1000? I have noticed quite a few people stuck at 11 bars.

Thanks

We know of the issues with the Rep, guys!! :lol:

Only reason it hasn't been fixed is because it would require the forum to be turned off for a bit and with all the stuff going on lately, we held off on it.
