    Just when I thought I had it figured out...

    I thought for every 1000 points of rep you have, that when you pos repped somebody they got one point? When you neg rep it is half. Yet I repped a new poster today who had only made two posts and his/her rep was zero with the exception of a single green bar. When I repped them, while he/she got eight more bars their points were still zero.

    And then to add to the confusion there was a paticular poster who was a few bars in the red, I pos repped him/her and they went to six points. I thought I would have to have 6000 rep points myself to be able to do that?

    Does anybody know how this fandangled system works! Not a biggie, just interested...

    Actually I think I have figured out the six point one...gets those points due to the number of posts he or she has made...
    The first part still confuses me though...

    Re: the first part. I negged the poster at the same time, thus cancelling half your pos rep.

    do you do this for reps, do you need a pat on the back or can you just end the day knowing that you did a good job.

    And also 1 for each year since he/she joined.

    But don't tell TM that. She's been bouncing back and forth between 60 & 0, and thinks her account is being messed with.
