    If someone agrees or disagrees with one of your posts they can give you neg or pos rep which increases that par on your upper right side of posts.


    I don't think it's really indicative of anything besides opinions.

    (Course it's not really supposed to be this way, ----but) if sombody likes what you say, you get a positive rep if they disagree, you get a negative rep. But look at it this way. If everybody agreed, it would be a very boring forum. I didn't come here looking for a mutual admiration society, so if I get a majority of negative regs, (which I do,)at least I am being effective in getting my opinion out.

    I wondered the same thing, especially since mine went up and then down. I thought who is reading my mind or does Gonzales have a new job? You click the justice scale to vote.

    Click on the scales in the top right border of the post you wish to give either positive or negative reputation to. A window will appear and you can choose between positive rep and negative rep. There is also a space below your choice to express your opinion concerning the post.

    If you look at the top right hand corner of your box, it says rep power and rep total.

    If you give postive rep, an amount of points is given to the person you rep equal to your rep power.

    If you give negative rep, an amount of points is taken from the person you rep equal to half your rep power.

    If you go to the main page and look to the top left of the page you will see "User CP (Control Panel). Click on that, and the last 10-15 reps given you along with their comments will appear.

    If you are in the negative, you have no rep power. A positive or negative rep will be worth zero points.

    BTW, I still hate the new rep system. Not only does it suck, getting that "you must spread some rep around" message when you want to compliment someone on a really good or bad post, but then you can't even be sure if the rep you get isn't just someone else trying to spread it around.

    i came from a system that is just like this one now, where you found yourself not able to rep, then giving out any rep so you could get passed the requirement....maybe it needs to be somewhere in the middle of whatever count between rep number u were on to one not quite as restrictive as this one...?
