    Hello Family,

    Several have asked about that "rep power" and what it means ... and to tell you the truth, i really don't know ... i don't think it means much at all ... gosh ... i don't have much myself if you'll notice ... it's no big deal, just a new feature that came with the latest upgrade of the forum software.

    I started this thread so we could talk about it ... the Mods know a little about it and hopefully they'll share ... i know a little too, but i'm sleepy right now ... just wanted to get this thread started and let you all know that you should not get yourselves in a tizzy about it ... always remember ... it's your warm, sweet, kind, loving personality that represents the power ... let there be no mistake about that!

    Well, I do know that when you click on the little scale icon over a person's info, you can approve or disapprove of a certain post, and you can add comments about them. I'm thinking that the more times people click that little icon over your name, you get points (or have them taken away.). Also, I'm guessing that it may have something to do with how active you are. *shrugs* Just a guess.

    I think rep power represents good points and responses. I watch this show in ESPN called "Around the Horn", and they hand out points to National Sports Columnists who make good points on a topic or a segment. I am thinking about it in that way. It just shows how strong your character is. You post good ideas, interesting topics, and such, I believe it goes up.

    yeah one day i had none and looked up it was flying beside me
    saying i'm yours when to my user CP stroll down and look wow!
    y'all gave me some love .

    I think it work when others give u some love and approve your post or reply
    the numbers go up and it counts on your activity too it also give in your CP
    points when you stroll down you will see everyone that gave it and how many
    points you have the little cloud looking icon is how u give it in a member post
    in the top right hand corner click it and a window open up for you to reply in
    you can spread only like 5 within 24 hours before you can give more out and
    before you can give it again to the same member you have to spread some
    reputation around give love to others before hitting them again !

    what i don't get yet is why some have one green dot and some have 5 or 7
    i think it's to be that you have to give some out the love you know and the more
    you give the dots will go away back to one so all y'all with lots of green dots
    need to give the love up it show u not giving any to folks or it could be that
    when others give it to you they add up but i notice when i spread some mines drop
    i had 5 dots and i give love on da down low ya know and they went away !
    still trying to understand it fully and what the points for can i buy something
    with these points ????????
    it's all :new: but very cool i :heart: it :huh:
