    "Magos is an unknown quantity at this point"

    What determines this rating (see below the avatar)? I doubt it is the post count cause I've seen people with ~30 posts have the same title as me with 2000+ posts. Just curious, that's all.

    Below your name, postcount and wheter you're online, there's a links that says "Add to $USER's reputation". The more people that give you a good rating, the more green squares you get.
    BTW, does your reputation affect how many reputation poins someone gets when you add to their reputation?

    Yes it does. So if someone with a high rep gives someone positive or negitive rep it affects them more then say if Xterria did it.

    How do you get reputation then? By getting good votes on your threads? Ok, new forum game: The one who votes the most 5's on Magos' threads wins!

    You click on that thing that says "Add to _____'s Reputation"

    You can see your last few reputation changes in User CP

    Ok....here's the way it works:

    Everyone has 2 different numbers involving reputation: Their reputation, and their reputation power.

    Everyone starts with a reputation of 10. It changes when people vote for or against you.

    What your reputation power is depends on a number of factors. You get one point of reputation power for each of the following:
    1. Number of compete years registered
    2. 1000 posts
    3. 100 points of reputation
    4. If your reputation is less than 10, you automatically have a reputation power of 0.

    The final few limitations on reputation are intended to prevent people from running up their reputation:
    1. Users must have several posts before they can give reputation.
    2. You may only give out 10 reportation votes per day.
    3. You must give reputation to at least 20 people before you can give it to the same person twice.

    I'm sure you'll have quite a change in reputation after this thread, Magos

    I know this question has been asked before, but I can't find it and I don't remember the anwser

    Where can you see who added/removed points from your reputation?
    I got a negative message: "just because I can "
    I don't want revenge, nor do I want to to [kelso] burn [/kelso] that person.
    I just want to buy him/her a drink, have some nice descent conversations. put him/her in my buddy list, etc...

    BTW, if it was Kermi3, I probably had it comming

    Even if your usercp says that you were given a reputation vote, it may not have counted. If the person has a reputation point of 0 then your actual repuation was not effected
