    Okay, sorry. I should have known this right off but had to look it up. The number of reputations you see in your User CP is set in an options panel by Chris. It looks like he has it set to 5. So you are only seeing the latest reputations that have been given to you, not all of them (assuming you have received more than five). Can the number be changed? Yes. But what number would be good? 10? 20? I don't think it really matters as long as everyone understands it's just the last 5 reputations that they have received.

    Oh God, I get so sick and tired of running into your kind on every corner of the Internet. Why can't you just get off your butt and get out there and earn reputation?? Hmmm??? It was good enough for your parents generation, you...you...layabout...you ne'er-do-well, you bum I think it's just disgusting that you expect hardworking people like us to just have to give away our reputation because you can't get the ambition to get up and earn it for yourself. ...At least get a squeegee and clean some windshields around here! Yeesh!

    My question is this.... Someone gave me Rep but my "rep points" did not change in numerical value. So what was the point other than someone saying "Good job", which they could've done in the post itself. I would think that everyone even a newbie(Snicker snicker) like Sourdough would have at least 1 point of value and then increasing in value following the guidelines set forth. (I'm having way too much fun tormenting you mods with this) Which I think is Sourdoughs point entirely, just guessing.
    All I'm saying is that a "newbie" has no point value in this but some have seriously raised my Rep points with just one of these "attaboys".(not that I can tell that the Rep points have done anything except give me a big head for the first 2 or 3 times - I thought I had DONE SOMETHING, then life settled back to normal LOL)

    Nah! Wait 'til I get 800 then you can have half!! Wait!! I've got an idea we can use them for poker chips!!! No that won't work you only have one color or the other.... Mosaic tiles.... nah....They've got to be good for something!!!
    No Seriously the only thing I Don't get is that Newbies like Sourdough can give you "Rep" but It has no point value... Don't Newbies count? I mean I'm still one,If I use it as a means of complimenting someone it means nothing. It's just quicker than saying "Good Post!! (We all know how slow I peck. It took me 5 minutes to do this!!)

    I'll trade you the last bite of my Snickers bar for two positive Rep Points.

    Look at it this way. Some "person" signs onto the forum with less than noble intentions. They are some booger eating, pimply faced troll that gets their jollies by disrupting forums. If they do it publicly, they get banned in rather short order. If they do it by other means, it might take longer. Either way, they have to try and get it done before their mom tells them it's bedtime. Because of some of the "safeguards" in the system it just works out that way. Honestly - it's no big deal. This does not seem to be one of those forums where people are judged by how much rep they have, but rather by the content of their posts. I've seen other forums (not saying that they exist) where unless you had half a dozen green thingies or medals under your avatar.

    Yeah I've seen that metropolis forum and it's medals..Don't care for it at all. Go there just to remind myself of what home really is and is NOT. You know like how do you know you're happy if you're happy all the time? Sometimes you have to leave home to really appreciate it.

    And now for the rest of the story.....

    I've seen other forums (not saying that they exist) where unless you had half a dozen green thingies or medals under your avatar all of your posts were discounted. Seemed more like a mutual admiration society than a place to exchange meaningful information.
