    Someone please explain to me the following. PLEASE!

    I understand how reps work ... but ... some of the folks I've repped have sent me a thank you / comment in a private message. Can someone please explain to me how that works? What I've been doing is going to their public profile to thank or comment to them when I receive a rep. How the hell do I do it in a private message in which my rep comment is included?

    Okay now ... y'all can stop laughing now. HEY, I'm still new here!

    Go to settings and options.

    Edit options.

    And checkmark this:

    You can receive a PM whenever someone adds to your reputation.

    Thank you Dogbert, for your response. I made the changes. Do you feel like giving me a rep so I can see how it works?

    I would like to thank all the USMB board members who offered up a rep to help me out.

    Just want to make it perfectly clear ... I was not rep-hoing. Even though I do like the sound of that. lol

    I think the note accompanying a rep is not actually considered a PM. It is permitted here to post those messages. It is not permitted to post other PMs without the sender's okay, including the one that you might return in thanking someone for a rep.
