Reputation points The webmaster has allowed for reputation points to be used. What this means is you are given the opportunity to rate another user. If you find another user's post to be very helpful and informative, you can give a good rep. If, on the other hand you find that the other user's post is a useless waste of time, you may post negative rep. Look for & click the set of scales on the upper right corner of each post. (If you are using Growkind Dark Theme it will look like a pot leaf) The system is set up to where you have to give rep to at least 20 other users before you can leave rep again for the same person. This helps prevent abuse of the rep system. Users found to be abusing the rep system may be subject to loss of certain forum privledges, or account banning.
