I have noticed lately that instead of being able to like someone's post, there is a red icon that says reputation. Is this a recent change & what exactly does that mean?

Hello, Thanks for your question!

The Post Thanks system was disabled because barely anyone was using it. We may bring it back if we have demand for it.

Here is what the rep system is from our FAQ page:

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 Positive Reputation Icon , negative Negative Reputation Icon or neutral Neutral Reputation Icon. 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.

Hope this helps,
mmc

Thank you for the quick response as usual! Very helpful information. I think I am clear on how it works now, except for one thing... I gave you a positive reputation for that post, but noticed it didn't show up. I guess the one that is getting the rep can only see that or does it have to be approved by an administrator? I probably misread something on your last post, that clears that question up.

If you look under your username there is an indicator there for reputation. It is really a simple system we can use for promotions, etc.

I just now enabled another system we used to use but I thought the overhead may have been too high. We will give it another shot. It is a user activity system. You will see it under the username on the left side of your posts.

Keep in mind when we get extremely heavy with traffic we disable some of these things for short periods of time to keep the site loading quickly.

Thanks for being here!
