Default User Rep

Hello,
Everyone always thinks it's great when people give them rep points on the forums, but can someone please tell me what they are actually for and why people want them? Lol sorry for the noob question. Thanks

there is nothing that special about them, actually quite hard to believe after there are so many people making such a big hassle about getting like 1 negative rep point. Ur rep level (determined by how many rep points u have) is shown under ur name, it's the green bar. The longer the bar is the more positive ur rep rating is.

It's kind of a way to show how helpfull the member has been.

So if you had 0 rep, the only difference between you and a guy with 2000 rep is a green bar? Yeah a lot of people wern't happy about getting negative rep.
