You meant that you have 4 orange dots in your profile page? I don't think they are measure in the same way.

In my profile I have like 12 orange dots, but in here I have orange and red dots.

I hope that helps.

PS: With 65 points of rep one orange dot sounds about right. No worries you will get more

Yes. Thanks for that.

i THINK the dots out here (in the forum) depend on post counts as well. You only have 500 posts, maybe thats why?

But I have less posts and more Orange Dots

hmmm but you have submitted some deals, the OP has not, I guess where there is a benefit to the site the user will get more 'orange dots'?

Nah the number of posts have nothing to do with the rep. The number of posts are used for the type of member you are.

Once you hit 500 you become Flame Thower, 1000 Solar Flare, etc.

The dots are only related to rep. Obviously if you have submitted good deals people probably have repped you for that.

Also the amount of rep that you get is different depending on the amount of rep the person has. So someone with little rep will add littlle rep to you, someone with a lot will add more.

Here's one for you. I have a blue square on one of me reps in the Control Panel, what does that mean?

Means you've been rep'd by someone with no rep, which gives you a neutral rep, and no extra rep points. Bit of a weird system, but there you go.

So, when the person with no rep reps me, it is blue. When he gets some rep, will my blue become orange?

You may be interested to know that Admin considers rep to be meaningless.;-)

Well they obviously don't, or they wouldn't prevent people without rep giving proper rep ;-)

Where Admin said this :

The advantage of putting rep in the profile is that it's meaningless... … The advantage of putting rep in the profile is that it's meaningless... so people who get wound up and try to game it aren't actually gaming anything I'd love to put something related to hot deals in that space but I know it's only going to encourage cliques to try and game the temp which is so important to the site.We did put "View FS/FT Feedback" link in there. We will get it updated to the proper feedback numbers at some point.
