As a refresher for veteran members and an intro to newer members...please use the reputation system when you feel you've come across a thread post that you feel deserves some extra feedback (in the form of reputation points & comments). These reputation points can go either way (positive or not positive):

- Positive if you really appreciated what the member making the post said.
- Not positive if you found something the member said or did was not to your liking.

Generally speaking...the overwhelming amount of reputation points & feedback given to members are for awesome/excellent/informative/insightful posts. But occasionally "not-positive" reputation points may also be given for various reasons.


A quick intro into how to give reputation:

- Click on the "thumbs-up" icon in the lower left area of the post you wish to provide reputation:

- Fill in the info in the pop-up box that appears:

- Click on the "Add to Reputation" button.


As positive reputation is gained...the number of green indicators above a member's avatar will increase:

Also...as progressively higher reputation milestones are achieved...differing statements will appear when the screen pointer/cursor hovers over the green reputation indicators:

For example:

That's all there is to providing reputation to member posts.:):)

Thanks,

- Nick

Nick, I found your post very insightful and informative; but I have to spread it around a bit before I can tell you:):Blushing:Joke!

So, I went to look at who I've given reputation to, and you are in my list (9th down), and I can't give you any points yet. But, in the list, one member is in the list twice, #2 and #15. It seems like 10, might be the number to spread it around to?

The reputation system has measures in place to minimize possible abuse of the system. Can't really go into more detail than that.;)

@ Nick - excellent post and summary of the 'Reputation System' - LOL because I'm in the same situation as Ian about 'spreading it around' - Dave :)
