    The one on the right (square) shows your rep, the one on the left (round)shows people whether you're on line on not.

    Hiya,

    Do you mean the ones next to your user name or the squarish ones on the right of the post under your location?

    The one next to your user name is green if you are online. The other one is some sort of rating. How it works, I don't know :?:

    I've noticed that there is a set of silver scales on the top right of the post. If you hover your mouse over it, it says that you can add to a persons reputation.

    I guess, if you like someones post, you can click on it and give them good rep. Not sure what you get though :?: Maybe some badges at a certain point:eek:):

    I wonder if that is something to do with membership status?

    It would be interesting to hear what other people see on their posts !!

    Yeah Tom I have scales on everyones posts so I must be able to add to everyones rep. What's it worth then? :wink: Only joking Mods please don't kill me.

    I think British Blades use it like a mini ebay feedback so when you buy from someone you can add to their rep, good or bad. Not 100% what we do here.

    You should have scales now Tant - an oversight on my part due to trying to do too many things at once.

    Thanks for bringing it up! :biggthump
