You can't specify how many. Its automatic. You will give me the points in your rep power. If you had 1 you would give me + or - 1. If you had 10, you would give me + or - 10. Right now you give 0 whether you specify good or bad.That helps a bit, although when I went to give you rep, I don't see any way to specify the points i am giving you. One other thing is that since I have less than 25 posts, should I be able to give you points at all (and I did add to your rep according to the pop-up window)?
I finally understand! Thanks to all.You can't specify how many. Its automatic. You will give me the points in your rep power. If you had 1 you would give me + or - 1. If you had 10, you would give me + or - 10. Right now you give 0 whether you specify good or bad.
Done!...though as limegrass69 says..."You can see that a person with <25 posts added to your reputation, but you don't get any points added to your tally. "
Deacon had a rep power of 0 and limegrass69 has one. They each said they added to my reputation and it went from 12 to 13 so it seems if you have a 0 rep you are not giving any points.I gave you a point...you should see it. :bigthumbup:
Good Point, most people here are not that way though.Just speaking as someone who has posted for a long time on another board with rep points, they had a problem in that a clique of people would rep each other up into the stratosphere, other people would complain about their rep, and so on.
They had to set up really silly rules that you weren't allowed to even mention rep in a post, and later hid all rep feedback, and then finally set it so you simply had a green box or a red box and nobody could see who had more or less rep than anyone else.
In other words, it's a nice idea, but if things get cliquey it can be a hassle.
If you look in the top right corner of everyone's posts, you'll see a little scale. Mouse over it and it will ask you if you want to add rep points.Can't say that I have read every page of this thread, but ahhh......how do you give rep points ?
Forget it I finally figured it out.
