    and how do you get it?/
    I have been given some but i don't know why or what for and i perhaps would like to give some.
    i assume it is different from being thanked??
    anyone know??

    If you have a look in the FAQ section at the top of the page you will find an explanation, but basically it's like thanks but a special thank you for a message that is particularly useful or inspirational, or because they think you've gone above and beyond helping someone out. If you go to the top left hand corner below where it says your screen name and click on the link there, you will see who repped you and why as they usually leave a message.

    I think it is when you give useful information than someone can nominate you so that your rep power grows, but don't know how to do it myself.

    At bottom left of the message, under your stats, there are three icons - the one that looks like a set of scales is how you give people rep.

    True! Since the thanks button arrived we don't do nearly as much repping though, which is a shame cos it's rather like getting a present in the post!

    You need to have posted 50 times before you can thank someone so you won't see the button until then. So get posting :)

    It is nice getting both thanks and rep. I am making a mental note to rep a bit more often!
