I don't know if I am the only one having this problem. I gave reputation to some posters but their reputation points remained unchanged (they were not 0 to begin with, so they must have received the new rep points from somewhere). Could it be that whatever rep points I am giving don't show up, or right now the total is too low to make a noticeable difference when I do give rep?

Everyone was supposed to start with 10 so it does seem like people's reps are changing. Maybe it is that everyone's rep power is really low?

Why do the blobs not correspond with the rep power? I have the same rep power as Vash01 but two more blobs?

rep power = A + B + C

whereas:
A = (Reputation Received on User CP page / 100)
B = (# of posts / 1000)
C = (# of years on FSU)

Currently, for all of us, A < B and/or C, so B and/or C are the dominant variables in the rep power equation for all of us for now.

A is the variable that was reset.

The blobs correspond to the value of the Reputation Received on your User CP page and look to be 100 Reputation points Received per blob.

Search for the original threads and/or FAQs about the rep feature for the full clarification.

Once you get past the virgin status, the rep levels bring back memories.

The blobs represent how much rep you've received. In the example above, it appears TG has received more rep than Vash, but because of the formula above, Vash either has posts or longevity to help make up the difference to equal the same rep power.

Anyone else think it funny that you get MORE power for being a blabbermouth?

It's the *quality* of your blabber that counts with me.

Your post count is still in the triple digits, so do not fear. Oh wait...you only joined this year!!!

Not to worry, my posts are not of 'high quality bladder' ... needless to say I still use Pampers/Huggies.

I just gave you some rep. Maybe that will help. I'm excited because I have three blobs now (the green things).

I miss being able to take someone from one blob to a whole line of them. My rep to you did.....nothing.

In the old days (back when I had to walk to school every day, up hill both ways, in the snow) I would almost always rep a new person just to give them lots of green -- unless they were an asshat, of course.

I'm not the mouthiest around here -- and I've been here since 2001! Besides, I'm a teacher -- we have a lot to say!

Well, something helped. I have four blobs now. Thanks.

Really, I think that's quite an accomplishment to have over 27,000 posts! Maybe one of these days (years ... or whatever!) I'll catch up with you!

Oh yeah, you make my day Angie. I am deliriously happy. You lived up to your signature .
But I cannot rep you back because I do not have the Green Power! I want POWER!

Sounds logical. So I assume those with few posts work as pathologists or morticians.
