Good question since this is something I have switched "on" but haven't messed with too much yet.

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

On everyone's post, you will see a little "scale" icon. Click this and you can approve or disapprove with another persons post. You can leave a comment on this as well. You may view these comments (one's made towards you) in your user CP.

There are titles for a variety of reputation levels, and users are given a reputation title when they reach a certain reputation level. Most everyone starts off at 10 - I have increased the numbers on some of the oldtimers by the way :D

This is something that I belive will enhance the quality of the postings and I trust it will not be abused with "you suck" and these sort of comments. Unless of course the person really sucks :D

Man, this was an old thread that was "stuck" here for too long. People should rate other users posts more often; I guess I need to give people an incentive to do this like give money away or something :rolleyes:

When I try to do it, I usually get the message that I should spread some more reputation around before giving it again to X, even when I have probably given reputation points to a dozen other people in the meanwhile.

Hmmm, odd. Guess it's time to check the ol' admin section... :D

Okay - gotcha. It was set at "20" users you must shell out reputation points to before giving rep points to the same user - now I've reset it to 10. And you have to have 15 posts minimum in order to give reputation points to anyone.

I guess someone here decided one of my postings really sucked... :p
I have 9 points and am listed as an "unknown quantity at this point". LOL

I have 21 points for over a year now and am not impressed :machinegu
If you start using them - others will in return (hopefully). If anyone has a brilliant idea for a contest, I'm all ears.

I clicked on approve and also put in comments. Maybe bugs still need to be worked out. LOL

No bugs. It may have been when you tried to give rep points, your Reputation Power was set at zero (since you're relatively new). It's now "1" so you can now make a difference :D
