Re: Rep Power

I have no idea, but I'm glad you asked! Maybe I'll get to find out too!

What is Rep power
Apr 26th, 2007
Please folks, forgive my ignorance .. I am just wondering. what is the meaning or import of the "rep power" rating of all the users. What are its implications and/or benefits if any.

Re: What is Rep power
Apr 26th, 2007
It is a visual guide to your reputation. You get points if someone feels your posting has been helpful enough to them to 'add rep' for you. The more important/powerful (in reputation and/or management terms) the person giving the rep is, the more points you get. So an admin giving you rep would be worth more than a newbie member with no postings to their name.
By the same token, you can also get negative reputation points if someone feels strongly that you are being unhelpful, disruptive or giving bad advice. So it is really just a way of quickly measuring the reputation of the person providing an answer to a question.

Re: Rep Power

Ok, so I'm confused. I followed the link and I can't figure out how to see my last 5 scores. When I go to my CP I don't see my rep power or score. How do I find this?

Re: Rep Power

Apparently its disabled in this version of the VB Software. Sorry folks. We're waiting for new code. Sigh. Thanks for everyone's patience and understanding!

Good with the bad. If members don't like it, we can shut them off (again)

Re: Rep Power

No it's cool, Andrew. Feedback is good, as far as I am concerned, it gives me perspective. I just noticed that. That's all. I like the feature personally.

how can you tell it's bad - apart from if they said so explicitly?
