    Rep puzzle

    I just noticed something else about the Rep points. When I click on my posts which have got a rep, I come upon:

    1. somewhat positive
    2. positive
    3. very positive

    But how does the software decide this? I mean there are just two options while giving the rep points:
    1. I approve
    2. I disapprove
    (+ space for comments)

    Am I missing something here?

    + I really would like to know who is giving me some awesome remarks. :o Could you fix the rep-viewer somehow, Erin?

    The rep system is a bit complicated, and I don't understand all the inner workings. But I think what you're referring to is caused by weighted rep that different people can give. New members, if I recall correctly, can give only one point of rep when they give rep; more senior members give more rep, but exactly how much I'm not sure--it's on the order of ten or twenty points. The amount of rep you can give is determined by many factors, including number of posts, length of membership, and amount of rep you have received.

    So you really, really want to know your secret admirers, eh? Let me look into it.

    Forum upgraded. You may notice some differences.

    (I'm adding onto this thread instead of creating a new one.)
