Could have been before the last VB upgrade. Each VB upgrade seems to change things around.
Yeah, the whole five lines thing is actually a VB rule now or something. Before, when I changed my signature, I'd sometimes have too many lines and have to cut it down, but now I cannot update a signature that's over five lines.
Hmm...I thought the grey jewels were from people who hadn't got enough rep to increase yours, right? But DJ repped me yesterday, and I got a grey jewel even though she's got two green jewels...why is that?
I am so confused how rep works...
No idea. I've been a regular member of this forum for almost two years now and I still haven't managed to figure out how rep works...
Lol, thanks anyway .
@ StarTrooper: What are you confused about?
What how why when where....lol. No, not really why or where Or what so much. Just how it all works I suppose. There isn't a faq somewhere which covers it?
I don't know one . Basically, you can give someone rep by clicking the scales in the middle of the bottom row of images on a post. You can either agree or disagree with the post and leave a comment. The amount of rep points you get depends on the amount of rep the person giving you rep has. You'll get a green jewel if they agree, a red one if they disagree and a grey jewel if the person doesn't have enough rep points of their own to add to yours. After every 100 rep points, you'll get an additional jewel under your profile pic.
Sorry if this reads a little like an 'idiots guide to rep' BTW. I couldn't be sure how much you already knew .
Well, after a while, it takes more to get a green jewel.
At first I thought the whole thing was cool.Now I think it's not only stupid it's also very confusing to understand as well!
Doesn't that mean someone who doesn't like you can give you bad reputations all the time when he can get good reputation from others who like him?I got a bad reputation from Blackness because I don't like atheism for crying out loud!Should I stop talking about what I like and what I don't or what I believe because of this reputation thing?
Well first off you can't give the same person rep until you've given a bunch of other people rep (I think it's about 10-15 but could be more).
Second, one person's opinion shouldn't stop you doing anything. If you start getting bad rep from EVERYONE then you should perhaps pause to consider your point of view but if that many people are that annoyed you'll have been contacted by an Admin anyway...
We all get bad rep sometimes but don't take it personally. It doesn't affect anything, it's not like we're all in some big popularity contest.
Why the heck is it that I can't see all my reputation points?I ready almost all the pages in this thread and I didn't find an answer to that unless I'm so stupid that I didn't understand.
Is there a way to see them all?
Nope, just the last 5 unless you're an Admin apparently. They can see all of everyone's. If you ask nicely I'm sure they'd tell you what they say...
yeah, i really want to see all of mine..
So would I, actually.
Yep, me too .
I nearly had a heart attack when I saw I had 52 reputation points! But the ones I can see are nice TG! If some lovely admin person is reading this, I'd love to see them all, pretty please with sugar on top?
No. 52 reputation "points" do not mean that 52 people left you reputation; as your status on the forum grows (time, post count, rep) so does your rep power, or weight.
Meaning, you can get 52 rep points from one rep from someone with a weight of 52.
If a mod leaves you rep, it would have more weight. A Noob might have a weight of 1.
You can see the last few rep comments in your control panel, if any was actually left. People can give you rep points without leaving a comment.
We will not entertain individual requests to show rep history.
We do it for one, then everyone will want it.
Is it a forum thing that rep is limited to the last 5 posts? Is it how the forum is set up, or because the admins have set it to that manner?
PS. You're scary.
