As I understand there are a certain amount of rep points that are awarded based on the amount of time that you've been here. (that explains why some people with low post counts have a fairly decent rep).
but there is a lso a thing called rep power, each group of people, (meber/mod/admin) appears to have a different rep power, rep power is the amount of points awarded to you for each type of post.
this can cause some fairly zanny results, for example, I shot to the top of the leader board in rep after being awarded rep points by david and mixx, which suggests that david has a larger rep power than anyone, and moderators have a second highest rep power, followed by the members.
that is to say, for example,
if david gives you positive reputation this will in fact add perhaps 10 rep points for one post,
if a mod give you good rep then that's perhaps 5 rep points, and when an ordinary member gives you rep points that might be two rep points.
or it might even go into more detail than that, for example, a new member might be 1 rep point, member might give two points with each favoured post, gurus get three etc, (I forget how many levels there are).
but certainly, there are some people on the boards who have more rep power than others, so your 48 rep points might actually be just four from david, rather than 48 from members.
again, we are left in the dark about this cause david set it up and it's a closely guarded secret!
