    Hi Guys,

    I apologise if this has been already discussed, I have had a look around the threads teaching us how things work and I just cant find and answer to my question. It's a little hard to explain but here goes:

    I'm a bit confused with how the reputation works especially by this statement:

    How can they or you reciprocate when - from what I understand the person you approve cannot see who approved them (gave them rep points and a message).

    For e.g. I approved **** message and it says lets hope that they reciprocate (or something on those lines). What I don't understand is how can they reciprocate and me grovel in the first place if they don't know who it was that approved their message.

    I might have it all wrong here so that's why I'm asking you lovely people to help me understand better.

    I hope that makes sense as its hard to explain what I'm trying to say lol :rolleyes:

    Cheers, Helen x

    In your profile you can see who has repped you and any comments they've made :)

    When I click on user CP I can see that I have been given rep and the comment I have been left, I can see the rep points but I can't see who it was that left if for me, so I can't return the gesture. I'm I doing something wrong or looking in the wrong place?

    Cheers :)

    I believe the only way you can see who has given you rep power, is if they write their name in the comment, otherwise it's completely anonymous x

    Thanks Aaron, I thought I was doing something wrong, and that's why the statement that I originally posted didn't make sense to me. Now I know that they are anonymous makes more sense and verifies my original understanding. Cheers :D
