Next to the edit button on the left, there's a small image. If you click on it, you could rate that particular post. If you approve with the post, then it adds "reputation points" to that person. If you disapprove then it will take off reputation points. It's kind of shows who are the posters that are popular although some people simply do not care about all of this while others are obsessed about it. It's just for fun, here I'll add you some reputation points

The reputation fad is dying out anyway, so don't worry about it.

REPUTATION POINTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN LIFE ITSELF AND I WOULD DIE TO HAVE MORE OF THEM!!!!!! Whoa, sorry, channelling Anton.

In truth, reputation points are an excellent way to vent your pleasure/displeasure with somebody. although, it takes FAR too long before you can give *cough* more/less points to the *cough* deserving.

I have given one positive and one negative reputation so far to other. But, I have mostly negative reputation although I don't care about them. Oddly enough, all of the negative reputations I have gotten so far are from hingis fans.

How can you tell how many negative or postitive rep. points you have and who's sending them? I just get a number. I'm surprised I have any considering I post so seldomly and don't really write anything too controversial.

Were these things always here? I've been reading this board for years and I never even knew about them!

Go to User CP and it shows you the last 5 with who sent them and what they said.

They are quite new, they appeared when the board was upgraded

I notice, that next to number of posts, there are little green rectangles. Are these something to do with Reputation Points????

Yep, that's them. You get a new square for every X number of reputation points (not sure what the number is)
