    iv got both dots round and square and the scales are above all post by everyone. I think numbers may come up next to it if someone adds to reputation. its like that on british blades but a ten appears at the start as a basic number of rep.?? I dont understand really. We need a moderator!!

    The more dots the higher the reputation. You can see your reputation in the User Control Panel.

    You'll see it on the front page of your User CP once you've received a reputation 'click' (eg. someone clicks on the scales on one of your posts and either adds to or deducts from your reputation.) :wink:

    HTH!

    I can't say yet... It's only been running 24 hours so far. Let us see how it works out first before we have to start hacking it, eh?! :wink:

    The green dot only gives you the reputation rank.... not your actual score :)

    Hi mate, go into User CP, Edit Options and then the second box down has a check box to enable or disable it :)

    I'm a bit confused by all of this. While I understand the concept of reputation say on ebay where you want to gain a higher reputation so people will buy things from you.

    What purpose does it serve on a chat / information forum??? If for example I made a post that another forum member disagreed with or disliked, they could click on the scales say they disaproved and not leave any feed back in the box underneath? (this would then affect your 'reputation' ????).

    Sounds like trouble brewing to me!!

    Cheers

    John
