Can anyone tell me what the little green & grey squares are underneath your name, some people have lots of green ones, some only have a few & some of us only have one grey coloured one. Please tell me what they are :confused:

This is your reputation/standings in the forum. A grey box indicates nothing as yet, a red one (you don't see many) means negative reputation, and the more green you have, the higher your reputation.

You get/give rep by using that button under your username and it's worth using it to thank someone who has helped you. If you help others, hopefully you will receive it in return! Hope you understand that ok...

Thanks for that Emma, I have used the when other people have helped me out but didn't realise they were related.

Still quite new to all this!

No problem. While you still have a grey box, you can't actually affect anyone else's reputation's a thing to stop abuse - you can't affect other people's until you have some your self. Forgot to mention that!

Nothing to stop you leaving it anyway. The user can see the comment you made (but not who left it) so you can still make them feel as though they've helped someone!!

Thats good Ducky & thanks for letting me know, the recent anonymous ones you have are probably from!

Hehe, thanks!!…php
