• User Reputation Bar

    You've seen the green reputation bar on all forum user's profiles when they post. When someone sees a reply that is good, giving reputation points is a good way to reward the individual poster. Click on the star at the bottom left corner of any message to give reputation:

    Here is an explanation of what those green sections of the reputation bar mean.

    There are 11 total sections of the reputation bar. If a person hasn't received any reputation from other users, they show 1 gray section of the bar. New users will display this way. For users that have received reputation points from other users, here's what the bar means:

    1 Gray: No reputation points received

    From 1 to 50 reputation points, users get 1 dark green section for every 10 reputation points received:

    1 dark green: 1-9 reputation points
    2 dark green: 10-19 reputation points
    3 dark green: 20-29 reputation points
    4 dark green: 30-39 reputation points
    5 dark green: 40-49 reputation points

    From 50 points on, a user earns 1 bright green bar for every 20 points of reputation received:

    5 dark, 1 bright green: 50-69 reputation points
    5 dark, 2 bright green: 70-89 reputation points
    5 dark, 3 bright green: 90-109 reputation points
    5 dark, 4 bright green: 110 & above reputation points
