    I am still a newbie here on BLW, though I love this forum and have learned a lot from it.

    So many times have I found very useful posts, esp. in the download section (peter2002, tami6699, sweetfunny, wizgizmo, etc) are my big-time heros!!

    How do I give rep? I notice in the forum I am able to give thanks, but what I really also want to do is give rep by hitting the 'give rep' green button.

    The green 'give rep' button is only illuminated on my posts (which doesn't let me give any rep at all), not the posts of who I want to give rep to.

    I'm assuming that I am unable to give rep because I'm still classified as a newbie, BTW, this post that I'm making now is not an attempt to get my post count up. I just wanted to find out if that was the prerequisite, so many times have I wanted to give rep for some really good posts.

    Anyway, much love to all on this forum, peace and Godbless.

    To any response to this thread, I give my thanks in advance.

    I believe you need 50 posts to give rep.. once you have that many then you will see in every post the option to give rep.

    So looks like you only need 2 more posts.

    Ah, ok, thanks Moto.

    I'm not trying to be a kiss-up or anything, but BHW is awesome and the best. I'm realtively new to IM and have been to a lot of different forums about this (Just looking around), and BHW is by far the best!

    Rep given to BHW!

    There are a few other threads explaining this.

    Here's how it works:
    • Your a newbie member till you have 50 posts and then become a regular member.
    • Your a regular member till 100 posts and then become a junior member.
    • You have to become a junior member before you can join Jr.VIP.
    1. newbie can't give rep.
    2. regular member can give rep; leaves comment but doesn't add to rep points.
    3. junior member can give +rep; leaves comment and adds to rep points.
    4. Jr.VIP and higher can give + or - rep; leaves comment and adds or subtracts rep points.

    The GiveRep button doesn't get displayed until a member has ability to use it.
    Also once you can give rep, you have a rep power. I think this is detemined by number of rep points. Over 10rep has a rep power of 1, over 100rep has rep power of 2, etc.

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    Thanks GreyWolf I've wondered how the "giving rep" works because I have wanted to give rep to others many times. Have to give thanks instead until I reach regular member status.

    OP=original poster.

    Thanks NYC this was a question I had for a while and didn't dig through the FAQ to find the answer.

    Thanks Greywolf!
