    OK, so are we going to have a rep fest similar to the Immortal fest?

    Must be something else to this - Yesterday at 2pm my rep power was 0 , by 4pm it had gone to 29 where it has stayed at

    What about reputation points - any ideas ?

    Reputation is one of the things (along side a few other features to be rolled out shortly) which aims to reward users based on the usefulness of their contributions.

    While member titles will be based on how senior/how many posts they have made since join, all rewards and extra incentives will be based on what they do on New Rpoints from now on. This is why reputations started from xero.

    Users can click on the star icon under the post and "add reputation". Based on the "power" of the user who gives reputation, the user gets certain reputation "points". So if a newbie gives you a reputation, it will give you less points compared to a senior member with good reputation giving you reputation points.

    Power is calculated based maany factors like how long you have been a member, how many rep points you have and how many posts you have made etc.

    Reputation related rules apply to everyone - equally, mods or members. There are various rules and factors which go into the equation - some are below.

    Register Date Factor
    For every X number of days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. - currently set at 100

    Post Count Factor
    For every X number of posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. - currently set at 500

    Reputation Point Factor
    For every X points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. - currently set at 100

    Minimum Post Count
    How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? -Currently set at 10

    Minimum Reputation Count
    How much reputation must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? - Currently 10

    Daily Reputation Clicks Limit
    How many reputation clicks can a user give over each 24 hour period? - Currently 100

    Reputation User Spread
    How many different users must you give reputation to before you can hit the same person again? - Currently 5

    Hope this helps.

    @expressman - this means since yesterday, other users have clicked and given you these reputation points.

    @mel78, while the way it is calculated is a bit complex (to make it fair and proportionate), it is not too complicated for the users to use. I was only explaining how it works in the background.

    A Rep fest is unlikely though. People need to genuinely build up their reputation.
