    About user ratings

    So one day I was posting as normal, and then I see a red square right below my avatar on a post, at first I was like: "Red square! Nobody else has a red square next to their name, I must be special!" So I highlighted the red square, and the message said: "Kleid-0 is a segfault", what kind of sick joke is this!?

    It's reputation system. On the left margin of someone's post you can add reputation and it can be positive or negative. The amount added depends on your own reputation, and probably post-count and the time you've been a member (though I'm not sure).

    I'm guessing you're in the red purely for all the posts where you gave full source code with no explanation, but now that you've stopped that I don't think it'll be that long before you've got a green square or two.

    edit: In your user CP is a list of the rep that's been added recently

    edit: And don't get depressed just because you're being called a segfault. I can assure there are plenty others who somehow managed to get to multiple red squares and the title of compiler error after only a couple of posts.

    the Red told you you'd made mistakes. You learned from them; you're now green.
