    YCC - the way it is set up is that you have to give out 20 different ones before you can give rep to the same person.

    As far as negative rep and being silly? Heck I've gotten a green one and red one for the exact same post. Go figure.

    I've only been told to spread some rep a few times. It might be that I have the wrong idea but I tend to give rep for things that I find helpful, etc. It's more like a hall pass than your virginity...you dont have to hold it for that one special post!

    20 is just too many.

    You know if you made a good post recently guys.. I tried to give you rep, but until we get several more folks making useful / worthwhile posts I can't give you any more. Sorry, but the rules are the rules. Just know that I tried to. You know who you are!

    This is something that's being discussed. I hope we have a resolution soon. I feel the same way because I get hit with the "spread the love" bug, too. You guys that have received negative rep, you can't see who gave it? Don't you have a column that says "Posted by"?

    That's a different view than I have. I can see who posted for me, which I think is nice.

    NO........But it is fairly easy to guess, based on the referenced post.

    The short answer is yes. Negative rep subtracts from Positive rep. Chris will have to answer how much, however. That's set in the admin tables. Based on what I can see, it might be 4 points for each negative rep.

    Just as a reminder, negative rep isn't for when you simply disagree with a post of don't like a post for that matter. It should be reserved for something a little stronger. From the instructions:

    When should/shouldn't I give negative reputation?
    The issue of when you should give negative reputation is a tough one. Unlike positive reputation, do NOT give a member negative reputation ("rep" for short) if you simply disagree with them. For example, if a member posts a post stating that they believe the Rambo knives are the best and you disagree, do not give them negative reputation. It will not prove anything for yourself and will just make you look like an angry person who can't accept anyone disagreeing with your opinions. Basically speaking, only give negative reputation in extreme situations. If the person is personally insulting you, harassing other members, being rude and nasty, you may think about giving negative reputation. Please note that abusing the reputation system may result in disciplinary actions.
