The reputation system here on KHI encourages people to make better posts. Reputation points basically measure how popular you are on the forums, so to speak. You can check how much rep you've received in your User CP.

Rep Power
You may have noticed this in your posts, followed by a number and a green bar.

The number tells you and other users how many rep points you can give every time you rep someone. For example, if you have three rep power, you give three rep points every time you rep someone. Rep power does not signify how many times you can give out rep in a day.

How many green bars you have next to the number of rep power you have signifies how much rep you'll take away whenever you give someone negative rep.
Increasing Rep Power
Your rep power goes up by one:
  • for every year you've spent here as a member
  • every time you make 1,000 posts
  • when you get 100 rep points (This will also give you another green box.)
Contrary to popular belief, you do not receive rep power on your birthday.​
The colored boxes next to your rep power lets other users know what kind of poster you are:
reputation_pos.gif
- good
reputation_neg.gif
- bad
A grey rep power box simply means you don't have any reputation. Trying to rep someone while you have a grey box is pointless.

To get a green box, another user with a green box must rep you. If you want some rep out of it, the person repping you must have at least one rep power; otherwise, no rep can be received.

When given out, bad rep takes away from your reputation points. How much rep is taken from you depends on how much rep power the user who gave you bad rep has. If you have no reputation and you're given bad rep, your rep power box will turn red.

Rankings
Depending on how much rep you have, your ranking will change:

User thinks it's safe at the bottom. (-50 and below)
User is considered somewhat of a pariah. (-25 to -49)
User has been a little shameless in the past. (-1 to -24)
User is at an unknown quantity at this point. (0 to 49)
User is mediocrity at its finest. (50 to 99)
User is on a distinguished road. (100 to 174)
User is a jewel in the rough. (175 to 249)
User is kind of a big deal. (250 to 349)
User will become famous soon enough. (350 to 449)
User is very important. (450 to 574)
User has more class than the queen of England. (575 to 699)
User is beyond repute. (700 and above)
You can check your ranking by simply hovering over your rep bars on one of your posts.

Other things
  • You can rep 10 people a day.
  • If you want to rep a person again, you must first rep 20 other people first.
Changes (as of August 24, 2008)
  • Newcomers now only need one rep point for their grey box to get their first rep power, to make things easier.
Reporting harassment in rep comments
If you've been harassed in a rep comment, take a screenshot of it and post it here. It will be dealt with accordingly. Your post will be deleted as soon as it is.

Questions
There shouldn't really be any since I've covered pretty much everything, but in case there are still some out there, I'll add them here. Questions will be deleted and added here as soon as they're answered.

  • I want to report negative rep abuse, but how do I take a screenshot of my rep comments?
    Press Print Screen on your keyboard. Go into Paint and paste (press Ctrl+V), cropping whatever's necessary. Save it, then upload it to an image hosting site such as Photobucket, ImageShack, or TinyPic.

^ The rest of the info about it is in this thread.


I wish I had rep points..... =(

I can't say "saying something smart and witty" will get you rep; usually that works out for me. But it takes time, there's no prefect way to get rep.

Like he said there is no concrete way to get rep. Although being a good member and having good posting definitely helps. Although its pretty much a fact that most rep given is just random rep. And also rep is more of a measure of popularity not good posting. So like I said just because you make good posts doesn't mean you'll always get rep.

If you're on you use a wired keyboard that it's PrntScrn.
For laptops I am unsure; I did do it at one time however.

[EDIT]

Alt+ Prnt scrn I believe.

How do you take screenshots I would like to report a rep?

Hey do you know how to read?

Taken from the first damn post:

Press Print Screen on your keyboard. Go into Paint and paste (press Ctrl+V), cropping whatever's necessary. Save it, then upload it to an image hosting site such as Photobucket, ImageShack, or TinyPic.

Yeah, someone knocked you down a few points.

When given out, bad rep takes away from your reputation points. How much rep is taken from you depends on how much rep power the user who gave you bad rep has. If you have no reputation and you're given bad rep, your rep power box will turn red.

Well you still have your rep, at least you're not one of the many to have pure nega rep.
Be happy you have that rep at all, did you know how long it took me to get that much?

Then again it this isn't some sort of contest, but don't worry about it, rep isn't really everything.
Aspire for respect from your peers, well, at least that's how I view it. (Thank you Met <333)

Look at the person you are trying to reps avatar, then scroll down a little. There should be a small pic that shows either OFF or ON, meaning someone is online or offline. Yeah, next to that there is a button. Choose green or red rep and write a message. :)Hope that helps!

You should make the message you get from negative repping different than the one you get from positive repping.


It's a bit controversial.

I have a quick question. It says that you get a rep point every year you're on KHI, where do you see the rep point? I still have zero. (Even though someone repped me when they had rep points)

You get one rep power every year you are here. Not a rep point. And you need at least 1 person to have repped you that had rep power themselves. But from what you said someone already had repped you. I'll rep you and see if it fixes.

EDIT// There. Now you have 2 rep power :3
