    My User CP says "Rep Power: 5". Is that because I've been a member for four, almost five years? What can I do with this? Thanks.

    Mr Wiz, could you please solve my rep problem? It's kinda irritating.

    Thanks

    You will need to ask an Admin to take care of that.

    2010 account, no idea about Rep. Makes one wonder.

    Hey WizGizmo, do you mind answering another question I have about the rep system?

    I've noticed that my "rep power" went from 4 to 5 recently, and before that I noticed that it went from 3 to 4. If the rep system was removed, why does my rep power arbitrarily increase?

    Thank you in advance.

    That has to do with post counts.

    Really REP?

    OP you should be worried about the quality of your posts and how much you contribute on here. How do you not know what rep is or was if you registered your account 2010?

    hmmm

    I have posted a thread in the Staff area which addresses this issue.
    Our Admins will look at it and will see what they can do to resolve it.

    So I did not imagine that my Rep went from 782,345 to 782,346?

    That's what I initially suspected as well, but when I saw that OP said that he also has a rep power of 5 (OP's post count is only 85; the total may be much higher if lounge posts were to be counted), I figured it was something else.

    The rep system wasn't removed it was disabled. The New BHW platform coming soon will remove this altogether.
