    OK, so I read the FAQ about reps and I kind of understand it... but I don't get it at the same time...

    I thought that you give reps to someone pos, neg, neutral for something of great value, not so hot, and to let someone know they suck....more or less....

    After I hit 15 posts though, a green button popped up next to all of MY posts that says "Give Rep"... But it's in MY posts... I thought the idea was to give reps to OTHER people...

    I see NOWHERE on anyone else's posts a place to give rep... Help me out here ladies and gentlemen...

    Oh.. and also, I finally decided to click the give rep button on mine to see if that brought up some kind of a menu or something, but just says,

    "This post has not received any reputation.
    You currently have (9) reputation points."

    And lastly... to give reps, does it take away from yours, and what determines the point value of reps that you get?

    Thanks for clearing this up for me black hatters,

    low rep = bad and noone will pay attention to you
    high rep = everyone will worship you and message you

    thanks all,

    that still doesn't explain how to give rep though... Does everyone else have a green button next to all of THEIR posts that says "give rep"?

    Again, i would think that it would be on other people's posts so you could click it, similar to giving thanks...

    Thanks,

    So what's the difference between Rep & Thanks?

    I give out both whenever I want to recognize someone because I dunno which one is the standard operating procedure on this board.

    Yep, I agree it's sometimes hard to find that silly "Give Rep" button.

    It's in the upper right hand corner of other people's posts, above the Join Date, and to the right of the (permalink).

    "Give Rep" is green; "Report Rep" is red.

    In looking at your profile DarkMagicianOfChaos, then looking over to the right hand side of the screen you should see it...

    You have to have 50 post count and be a member for 30 days, I think

    Yes... and if I press it it says...

    [​IMG]

    AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN!!! I don't see that with yours.... it doesn't say "give rep" on your profile... but you're looking at my profile and it says it!



    Is that why? I guess that would explain it... but why am I getting that button in MY profile now then?



    lol... see.. like that... how in the hell did that happen?

    and by the way.....

    dmoc@paypal.com .....

    .... Just in case.... =)

    I've wondered abou that too.
    I only see the the green button on my own stuff,
    but I can't give rep to anyone else. the little green button
    just ain't there-why not?

    That explains it. Rulerofall's account is not 30 days old.

    You are absolutely right. Now that I have over 50 posts can see reps for all posts.SO this is the rule "to give reps your account should be 30 days old and you should have 50 posts"

    Color-blindness?

    BTW, I have fewer than 50 posts, yet I still see it.

    That was totally it... Hit 50 posts and Green Rep's are EVERYWHERE.... This mystery is history....

    Now you know... and knowing is half the battle... Whoah... Sorry, just had a GI Joe flashback for a minute...

    Thanks all.
