    I have these popping up on my details at the top of the page. I know they put another green box on my profile, but can anyone explain what they are please?

    I am always curious - sorry.

    What is Rep Power:confused:


    Reputation Points

    Reputation are the green boxes that come up beside your name. The more green boxes the more reputation points that user has received.

    How do you get Reputation Power?


    you get one point for every 100 post you do. Also others can give you reputation points. When you have 100 points that then is equal to 1 reputation power. So the more points the more power.


    What you can do with them?

    If you like what a member has posted you can give them reputation and this then will help their reputation grow.

    Some members now have rep power of 1 and others have rep power all the way up to 226 or more! Which means they can give 226 reputation points.

    Also, grey/black box is shown by people who give reputation comments that elect not to show reputation, and/or have 0 reputation power.



    You can give people reputation points by clicking the

    [​IMG] icon


    it is at the bottom left hand corner under Avatar.

    You can see the comments left for you in UserCP, but not the people who have left them for you.




    This is how it usually works as explained by KD.:thankyou:

    "If a person with a rep power of 10 approves one of your messages, it gives you 10 reputation points. If a newbie has no rep power and they approve your post, then you won't get any points from them (but it's kind of them anyway :) )

    Your rep power depends on a number of things including how many posts you have made, how long you have been a member and how many reputation points you have.

    The quickest way of upping your rep power, is to post loads and approve messages of people with high rep power, so that maybe they will reciprocate. In other words grovel :D

    At the end of the day…it's just a bit of fun. Nothing to take too seriously.

    Right....off to do some grovelling :D"

    In your User CP at the top of the page on the Blue Bar you should be able to see the post you got the rep for and if anyone has left a comment!


    Love Mini xxx

    Click on User CP and scroll to the bottom of the page. If the person has chosen to leave you a comment it will appear there. Sometimes they remain anonymous though. Also if you click on the link it will direct you to the post which received the reputation :)
