You get reputation points from other users when you make good/useful posts or whenever someone feels you deserve rep. You can give other users rep by clicking on this icon. You get more boxes the more reputation you get, each box represents a certain number of reputation points (not sure exactly how much). When you get negative reps you lose points and if you get enough negative rep, the box turns red. When you build up a lot of rep points, the boxes start to turn dark green like some of mine are.

Reputation really doesn't mean anything on this forum except who has the most boxes.....lol

Thanks.....I've also been around the forum for 6 years. I really don't get that much rep though, there are users with a LOT more than me.

It's just an easy way to see who usually is helpful and posts good replies.

Don't start whoring posts over reputation points though. Those boxes will turn red...fast. Just post, be nice, helpful and constructive and you'll slowly gain more and more positive reputation.

No body really likes Tommy Boy, but he's a mod, so you gotta be nice.
