    2 pos reps in a row from Gunny are not enough to boost your score more than one point.

    But I bet it gets you on the edge ...

    As I understand it, you need 1000 rep points to increase your score by one point.

    how do you get 1000 points? do they all come from other posters or does anything else play into it?

    I liked it the old way where it built up about ten times faster. But, I think they cut it way back looking at the long term. Maybe it would top out somewhere.

    It all comes from other members. However your rep power depends on both your reputation points, which determine your medals, and your post count.

    Apparently, I have just dicovered, the amount of Rep you have determines the value of the rep you give.

    Not entirely. Your rep power is determined by a combination of your reputation points total, and your post count. Both make it go up.
