How come I have such a bad reputation on this forum?  

 

Don't you have anything more important to worry about than this? :wacko:

I'm like Lebowski don't fret over it.  I was unaware there was such a thing as those points until I saw your thread here.  I looked and I have 4 points, wow!  I've been on here since '03. have 240 or so posts, and have earned 4 points, and don't care.

We also get a reputation point each time we are quoted in a following post, whether the new poster agrees or disagrees with us.  So if one makes an outrageous post which is quoted and objected to, it's the same value as if we are praised for discovering a cure for cancer.....

 

Ha, I never knew THAT!  2 points for you George 👍

There is a button under your reputation that says "see reputation activity". It shows posts you liked and your posts others liked, etc. Check it out to see what they are using to calculate it. 

 

From what I gather, the more active, with no one complaining, and the more people like your posts, the better. 

 

 

 

Dang, never knew about that "button" either, cool. Maybe I should come up here more often, you's guys are smart. Two for you, victorialynn. Btw, what a beautiful name. :)

Give me a break buddy.

Tongue in Cheek.  Not "worried" about it.  Never said I was.  Just asking how the points system works.

OH! I have been wondering as long as I have been here what a "like" button does in a forum context. I never noticed the reputation indicator

Since the forum upgrade, there seems to be multiple ways to "react" to a post. I wonder how this affects the count?

My guess is they all count as "engagement" and carries the same weight. None are of a negative connotation. Even "sad" is more apt to refer to a car or topic, not the poster. 

 

I think the reputation is mostly a popularity indicator (how much they engage are people engage with them).

Didn't you once post that the forum software thought you were "liking" too many things? How much was too much?

Yes, I got a "time out' of sorts. I had several posts and was getting a lot of good feedback on them. I tend to like each poster on my thread to acknowledge them. Not sure how many were too many, but it had to be in the range of 40-50 I would guess? 

 

I am sure they limit it to keeps bots at bay.
