    How does rep work

    Banned
    Hi,

    Started using this site properly a couple of weeks ago and just trying to get my head around the rep thing.

    I get that if people help you that you give them rep but whats the benefit of this (if any)?

    On my contol panel I can see that 2 people have given me rep but at the top it says 149 points total. Now there is no way 149 people have given me rep so not sure what this means?

    Apologies if im being a bit slow here!

    Cheers for reading!

    The only thing rep really shows is that you are an active member that has shared good deals or have been helpful. (people also give out rep for stupid reasons too!) I think that the more rep the actual giver has, the greater amount of points you get, on the whole though i don't think they count for much apart from giving some an ego boost lol

    ^^ all of this. Also, the more rep you have, the more heat you can add/take away to a deal and expire or spam threads. :thumbsup:

    Rep doesn't really 'work'.
    There used to be a rep chart showing how many points (149 in your case) everyone had but, as rep is really pointless, that has gone now. In terms of points, the more rep you have, the more your rep is worth when you give it.

    Now it is a way of messaging thanks or other positive comment ( leave your name because it doesn't go on automatically).

    The orange/red balls below your avatar indicate up to a certain level but stop once the balls are 'full'.
    I think that rep is still a small part of the algorithm that determines your voting power for deals, much more important is the deals you post.
