    Reputation points are kind of mysterious. You can give someone a rep point, if you like what they posted, by clicking on the scale in the bottom left hand corner of a post. You can pick to give them positive or negative repuation. Then you can also leave a comment.

    The person will see these points at the bottom of their user CP. It's a nice little reminder that people appreciate your help & support.

    We think rep points lead to Karma. But, I don't know that this has been proven.

    Most of my rep points have a bright green square next to them. Two of mine have dark blue suares. I'm not sure if these means I was left negative rep points. The comments next to them are positive, so maybe someone just slipped up.

    You can't rep the same person too many times in a row. A pop up will tell you to spread the love around. Also, you are limited to how much you can rep within 24 hours.

    Do we really know what all the magic of the forum is all about? No. But, rep points are a great way to say "Hey thanks man" without using 500 points to buy a gift. So it's great for newbies & point horders. It's also really quick to do.

    Go forth & rep! Show a BDW member you care!

      Is it bad that I've been here for a long time and never paid attention to what is down where the scale is? Good info :)

        It's fun that there are so many BDW secrets that there is always something new to learn. Look on your user CP at the bottom. I've repped you recently.

            thanks for the reminder, Morgan, I have totally forgotten all about them. It seems we don't pay them much attention

                      Interesting! I love giving gifts, but I've received a few rep points also, and that's always cool.
