    Whoops!!!I've been posting for days and just realised I haven't introduced myself:eek::eek:
    Anyway I am 41, very fat and hoping for WLS in the new year.I've got an appointment soon to discuss this at the spire in Macclesfield:D
    So hopefully 2009 will bring a new start for me, and a way forward after years of obesity:cry::cry:

    This should help explain the rep power Candie :)
    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"

    If you can get it on the NHS that totally rocks!! :D:D For me, the wait would of been just too long (2/3 years and not even sure if i would have finding at the end of it all!) So that is why i decided to go private, i was left some money by a great-uncle an thought i would put it to good use.
    Good luck when you go on the 18th. You need weight up the pro's and cons of each one and which one would be right for you. I did a list on paper, the pro's and cons of each. For me, i was a real comfort eater and a snacker, so the bypass was the best option as you can cheat the band if you really want . But everyone is different and there are lots of people on this website who are very successfull of the band.
    Anyway- good luck on thr 18th! 2009 is going to be a good year for slimming ;)
