  • Question About Reputation

    although this is not a product request it is the only place i know that you guys monitor on a regular basis so here its the question. since the forum upgrade i have been seeing the reputation ratings and was curious as to the rating scale, ie: worst to best. and how does a person gain or lose reputation? it might be nice to know even though it does not have a lot of bearing on my activity i am just the nosey person that has to ask. thanks again guys for the forum.

            It will not allow you to give the same person even in another thread any more reputation.

              Reputation Point Factor
              For every 20 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

              Minimum Post Count
              How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? - 50

              Minimum Reputation Count

                    just wanted to say thanks lance for making the adjustments to this function. some of the regulars on here that were maybe not heavy posters but well deserving are finally coming up in the rep area. i personally feel it ads to the forum. thanks again.

                      Just found something out: it will only allow you to give any one person 3 reputation points in a 24 hour time period. Haha, I was bored so I decided to click on certain people's names and select the "find all posts by so-and-so" button and then just go through and give them a reputation point for all their posts. LOL, made me stop at 3. But hey, "some" people are 3 points richer now.
