    You can go to the members list and find your name. Or just click on your very own Reputation Button

    Reputation Limits?

    I just read a post where somebody said they couldn't give me another reputation boost because they had given me too many and need to spread them around more first.

    That's a bit weird, but I guess it prevents artificial boosting where you and a friend agree to boost each other's posts to get to the top of the reputation list.

    I wonder what that limit it, though. I've got 27 points, so if you start with 10, that's 17 bumps. Even if those were all from one person, that doesn't seem like that many for somebody with almost 400 posts.

    It's not a big deal, but I thought it was curious.

    I tried to boost someones rep and it wouldn't let me and said I need to spread the love around. Also I had two people boost my rep but my points still say 10. Not sure what is up with that?

    Rep Points

    I don't know. I just assume that one boost is one point, but maybe I'm wrong. If one boost does equal one point, maybe somebody downgraded some of your posts.... (I could be wrong, of course, but it's another possible explanation.)

    That's one reason that I wish you could at least see the posts of yours that got reputation and the comments that went with them. (The admin can see them, I think, but that doesn't help us.)

    Everyone starts out with 10 points? And, just to think, I thought I was special because I had 10 points! That is funny. If you have '0' for a post count, you have the same amount as I do with '124' posts or so. LOL! Ya'll need to work on this a little bit.

    the boost reputation link is something like:
    going down the thread, the number seems unique, even under the same username who has multiple posts in a thread. is there a way we can put a link in our sigs? or does the system add reputation points per post per user?

    UPDATE: Oops, I understand now, the 5-digit number is the individual post ID, lol. For example, this post is #22773, so if / when you click my link to boost my rep, the link is http://www.everythingq.com/forum/reputation.php?p=22773 . . . so we get reputation per post.

    It'd be more convenient if the link was more noticeable than a little icon on a post.

    "And the Lord said, "Let there be light"..." :tounge:

    Those numbers help the computer keep things tidy. They were developed by the Thread Master eons ago. Almost BB-type forums have them.

    Signatures

    Go ahead. The more people that start using reputation, the more useful it becomes.

    Here's the code to do it.

    The trick is to upload the Reputation image as your Signature Picture. Try this URL -- http://www.everythingq.com/forum/everythingq/buttons/reputation.gif -- but if that doesn't work, save it to your PC and upload it.

    Of course, I'm not so sure the signature is that effective. I only have 27 points myself. I got the idea from tj!2k6, who has been using his signature longer than I have and has more posts than I do, but has no more reputation than I do.

    Give it a try, though -- it certainly can't hurt. The good news is that most of the first Member List page when sorted by Reputation is people who have actually been given boosts my other people, so some people are using it.

    Stealth Mode

    Alright, who took the thread out of stealth mode so TAG found it? :laugh2:

    Yeah, he said he had 818 posts just six days ago, now he has 928! Maybe he gave up trying to catch Tom and me at Qusers. :2cool:

    That's exactly what the limit is for.

    I forget exactly how it works, but IIRC by default you can rep 10 people per day, and you have to rep 20 different people before you can rep the same person again. Per 100 posts you receive one point of rep power until 500 posts, then you receive another rep power point for every 200 posts; and for each "dangly" you have, you get another point of rep power.

    Edit: Also, you gain an extra point of rep power for every 365 days you've been a member of the forum.

    That's why when newbs rep you, while it's a nice gesture, no points are added to your overall reputation, simply because they have no rep power.

    Thanks for the info. That explains why I have like five rep boosts but my score has not changed. Newbies have no rep power. Seems weird but whatever.

    Doesn't Sound Right

    That sounds interesting, but then why does Infest only have 4 rep points or so? With 1,000+ posts, he should have at least 7 (unless somebody's been knocking his rep down...).

    And what exactly is a "dangly"? Are those the medals/awards I've seen at other vBulletin sites?

    If I recall correctly, those are the default values, which can be modified by the admins. Chris could chime in here and let us know the definitive answers.

    The "danglies" are the [green] orbs below your post count. I dunno what they're really called, but it's what we called 'em over at mp3car.

    inf3st, rep me.. edit: forgot to say please, lol
