Hi, everyone. I just thought some people were confused about this feature that is so neglected of the forum.
Ever looked below each person's name and seen a green Bar?
Well, that's someone's "Reputation Bar."

On the bottom right of every person's post, next to 'Edit' and 'Reply,' is a small yellow button that looks like someone SHOUTING. Click it, and select 'Approve' if you like the person's post, or 'disapprove' if you don't like it.

You can only give one person reputation one time, per post, and you can only give so much reputation per day. Together, we can revive this "vestigal" feature of the forum. ^_^

Come on.. Rate this post! (Approve, not disapprove, THBBB! :laff: )

And I'm sure you're gonna get a few disapproves because somebody will think it funny...

But yeah, I think it could make things more interesting if people were to participate in the giving of reputation as long as it isn't taken to seriously.

for quoting, push the reply button, but push the one on the post you want to quote.

Yeah on this forum at least, the approve/disapprove would be more based on popularity than what its actually suppose to be used for, like Miroku said. I've never used it, but thats because usually your point gets accross during the post, and you dont really need that thing, some people use it though...

Better than you hitting me with one that had no comment, Alea, and no, it wasn't me.

i think its just a waste of space cause no one really uses it or if they do its a whole 1 time then they dont bother anymore because it doesnt do a thing

Yeah, i use this feature from time to time, whenever i see a really nice post. Allthough when i look at my reputation points, it doesn't show who gave it to me, is this supposed to be like that?

You aren't told so you can't take revenge. I can see who does it though.
