    The User Reputation system allows members to leave comments about one anothers' posts, and thereby contribute to their overall 'reputation'.

    User Reputation in its simplest form is a ranking of user's benefit to forum. Its basis comes from the opinions of all of forum users that choose take part in it.

    Users gain and lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Users with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take aways points by approving or disapproving with a post's content.

    What is reputation?

    Reputation is a way of rating users depending on the quality of their posts. If the administrators have enabled reputation, then the reputation icon will be visible in posts.

    Reputation may be positive , negative or neutral . Negative reputation may only be given if the administrator has enabled this. Neutral reputation is only given when the person giving reputation does not meet the criteria set by the administrator to affect someone else's reputation.

    How do I give reputation?

    To give reputation, click on the reputation icon in the relevant post. This will reveal a form to complete with the reputation type and the reason for giving the reputation. If negative reputation is disabled then it will not be displayed in this form. You may not give reputation for the same post twice.

    How do I know what reputation I have received?

    You can view the reputation that you have received in your User CP (User Control Panel) where it is displayed at the bottom of the User CP page. Here you will see the latest reputation that you have received and whether this is positive, negative or neutral. Your total reputation will be shown as series of reputation indicators in your posts and profile. The more positive your reputation, the more positive icons will be shown. The more negative your reputation the more negative icons will be shown.

    How much reputation is given? What is reputation power?

    If the administrator has enabled this, the amount of reputation that each user will give (or take away if negative) is shown in the user's posts as 'Reputation Power'. The value of the reputation power is determined by the administrator and may increase over time depending on the settings they have applied.

    What if I don't want anyone to see my reputation?

    You can disable the display of your reputation by going to your User CP and selecting Edit Options. On this page you will find a check box labelled 'Show Your Reputation Level'. Un-checking this box will remove the display of your reputation and replace it with the Reputation Disabled icon. You can still give and receive reputation while your reputation display is disabled.

    I am here bhai.

    Got to the BSNL broadband Section or any other. Go to the last page and spread repo yo some random old posts until it show you need to wait 24 hours before you can give reputation to someone (or something similar). After 24 hours try giving repo to someone you weren't able to before.

    - All credits of this trick goes to: J4X

    @All. If a certain post helped/interests you. Then you can give reputation points to that post. Just another way of thanking the member for their work.

    Just my guess. 4 members have given you reputation in past 7 days worth 13 points total.

    Power of reputation differs according to a members seniority (ie: Admin= '10' points, new member= '0' points etc).

    PS. Why you interested in rep now ? :confused1:

    You need to give repo to X number of members before giving repo to the same member.

    Imagine X is 15.

    If you repo-ed Member 'a' then you need to repo 15 other members (eg: b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p) before giving repo to 'a' again.

    Yes, it is. It's kind of like a hidden feature. Same with the thread rating system too.

    Not really

    @Archer and Evander

    Am i correct by saying that

    1000 posts = [you are able to give] 1 rep point
    2000 posts = 2 rep point
    3000 posts = 3 rep point etc

    So the guy who gets repo ed by Admin is a very lucky guy

    experience pal , not with gf but with repo-system, maddy knows.

    Anyway, it happened once again, I think that the new guys are not given a right to give repo because three of my rep points are greyed out. When I visit the post it says, "ur rep on this post is EVEN".

    when newprouser was a newcomer, he gave me rep once, it was greyed out and didnt add up to my total rep. It has happened again twice since then. I m really giving up hope.

    @Admin, Can the mods have additional power to award rep points to whoever they want, whenever they like?

    The restriction is to prevent abuse of the system. Otherwise people may just start giving repo to each other for no reason at all. I support the restriction but there should be a method to allow the restriction to be lifted from responsible members.

    Works for me.

    LOL. If you look at the Stats page, you will see many unknown people getting reputation.

    This is result of the trick that I published sometime ago to spread reputation before giving to the same person again.
