I see a rep power icon in my posts. I understand that concept but I can't find anything on here that explains how it works. I used to have 1, now I have zero. When I clicked on my own icon it said

"This post has not received any reputation. You currently have 8 reputation points."

Can anyone help with this? Thanks!

I show you with 1 rep point.

So how's that work? How do you get rep points? Why did it say I had 8?

Now it says:

This post has not received any reputation. You currently have 22 reputation points.

A member can give another member Rep Points (a pat on the back for making a good post if they so desire) by clicking on this icon http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/images/images_pb/buttons/reputation.gif in the bottom left corner of their post. After they receive so many positive Rep Points from members (I'm not sure how many it takes), it will show up as Rep Power. If you go to your "User CP" and scroll down to the bottom, you can see some of the Rep Points that have been left from other users for you. Im not real sure how many show up at one time. I have 5 showing in mine right now.

Cool! I got a negative rep point from a post in chit chat! http://home.comcast.net/~forestcam2/laughing.gif

I have one that shows red. Does that mean that they felt that I gave a bad reply?

I'm not sure. I'm showing that I have 4 in green and 1 in black. I have no idea what that means :confused:.

BTW, if you found my explanation helpful, I wouldn't be offended if you gave me positive Rep Points for it ;).

Since we don't really know how this thing works, maybe it upgrades you to moderator if you get a bunch of positive ones!
Alternatively, maybe it kicks you off WattFlyer if you get a bunch of negative ones!
:p

I got a negative comment on my reputation page for a reply I made from a fellow who was booted off the Wattflyer forum. I wear it like a badge of honor now.:D

A negative rep point is 1/2 a point while a positive is a full point :)
