I'll discuss here the "Reputation System".
The +/- buttons is the basic tool for giving reputation points.
Logically, "+" means adding reputation to a member and "-" meaning reducing reputation.
Only give the proper reputation if the member deserves it.
"+" them if you think they've helped you or "-" them if you think they've offended you in some way.
It is located besides the users info. It looks like this ...
The "Thanks" button appears only to topic starters.
It is pressed on a post if the topic starter feels that a members post helped him/her in her problem or question.
It looks like this ...
Once the "Thanks" button is pressed, the thanked post will become pink for the others to see.
The thanked user of the post will gain Reputation points higher than the 1 point the "+/-" buttons gives.
After giving the reputation points, the reputation of the member will increase or decrease depending on the reputation given.
Reputation is located at the users info on the right side of the page. It looks like this ...
Never abuse the "Thanks" and "+/-" Reputation Button. Only give the proper reputation if you feel he/she deserves it. Report any abuse to the "Reputation System" and we will take proper actions.
