    I have received a couple of PM's regarding "Reputation" in the forums. What is it, why is it there, how is it changed?

    What is Reputation:

    Reputation is for forum members and is generally not used by the admins or mods. It is just a way of fellow forum members to rate you and your posts.

    Why have it:

    It is a way for other forum members to see how you are viewed in the forum community by other members. For example if a new member joins and asks a question and two people answer, one with a 28 rep and one with a 0 rep, the rest is self explanatory.

    How do you affect it:

    First, there is a limited amount of times a reputation can be changed daily. By posting helpful, insightful, introspective, pensive and/or "sometimes" witty comments, others will rate your reputation in the below manner:

    inside the contents of a post on the right hand side, you will see:
    +
    -
    By clicking on the + you will increase someone's reputation, and by clicking on the - you will decrease their reputation.

    Hope this helps!

    Mark





    Disclaimer - Abuse of the reputation function will require the site admins to remove it. Threads regarding reputation "boosting" will be removed and warning will be issued. So basically don't ruin this for everyone.

    Are people downvoting posts in here for giggles? >_> You both got negative rep for seemingly no reason.

    Way to go, whoever it was.

    Oh wow. I may have been unintentionally de-repping people. For a while I thought that was a scroll down button for posts. I kept wondering why it never scrolled down. -_-

    I'm very sorry. sad

    You must be the topic creator. Next to the Quote button will be a Thank You option with a red X (not sure why) and you can only thank someone once.

    ^ I think you can thank somebody more than once so long as you thank them regarding different topics. But you can only thank one person per individual topic.

    I've been getting 2 rep a day for the past 3 days, and none of my new posts in that time seem to have been the ones that are being repped (is that a word?)

    Thank you phantom repper, if something I said meant that much to you I'm glad I could brighten up your day, but it's driving me crazy not knowing which posts are getting upped lol!

    Reputation is cool although to me it's a bit like indictements you never know the reasons, at the end I believe that most of the guys who have - some value of rep are not very good at interacting with others, me I have never gotten a downvote.But I have seen people get downvoted for fun, for comments that were not in agreement to someoene else, I mean we can have discussions without getting out of hand.I think it is a good medium in itself and lets you know who you might be dealing with but if someone is misunderstood and not given a chance then it gives space to bad judgement and worst of all people who are cast away for voicing different ideas even if they do it in a composed manner, so my main suggestion to this would be that when someone gives a downvote he atleast get a box which asks why did he downvote this user, it could be open or multiple choice answers
    but that would definitely give the mods more input of who the users really are and at the same time give the users more security when they look at a bad rep person or get bad rep themselves.

    We have tried to tweak the parameters of the system, but have found it to be unchangeable. So it's not
    perfect, but in it's present state we still felt if useful to have as opposed to not. We can check how many (-) votes people issue so that is one way we ensure no one is spamming negative rep to be a troll.

    I personally like to use it to call out anything of unique value, such as a lengthy, helpful, and well detailed answer to a question, a share of a nice find, or when someone has taken on an organizational/leadership role with a forum event or the wiki.
