    Rep.PNGSo is there a reason why my wife an I can only give positive rep.?
    And do the Mods and staff control the rep.?Say if someone gave me rep. can a Mod or staff come and take it away?It seems the 10 rep. spread then you can give it to the first is not working for us either.

    Only mods can leave neg rep. The administrators can change rep but I doubt they ever have. As far as the 10 rep spread, I think that number depends on how many posts you have made (or something like that). I'm sure Rick or Crash can clear it up better.

    Camp10 is correct. Only mods/admin can give negative rep. Wasn't always that way, but the story is long and convoluded. Everybody starts out with 10 rep points. As members give out rep to your posts, that number will increase. The "rep power", or number of points that are given depends on several factors (number of posts, how long you've been a member, et). When a new person gives rep, it adds 0 points and shows up on your setting page with a little grey box. When Rick, for example gives rep it adds several point (based on his number of posts and longevity) and shows up on your settings page with a little green box. If you receive negative rep it will show up with a little red box.

    Only having joined in March it's going to be a while before you see any significant changes in your reputation. Your reputation level is 1, Your reputation power is 10 and your join date was in March. You're kinda in the basement at this point. But, that's where everyone starts.
