    I was the same!

    rep is your prerogative to give to post you either think are informative, good content or don't agree with. They affect the green blobs at the RHS of your posts (saying "xxxx has a long way to go", "xxxx is a diamond in the rough").

    rep is completely open in that you can see who gave it to you but disagreements shouldn't be discussed on the open forum (as it's against forum rules).

    I try to rep every day now as I find that you get loads of likes but very few people rep?:confused:

    I always thought rep was achieved by lots of likes. All these years I've been getting it wrong! :) Whops, better start reppin' people!

    If you look at the top right hand corner of the post that you want to rep, you will see an icon of a set of scales. Click on this and a box will come up giving you the choice of giving good rep or negative rep (a red blob).You can also choose to leave a little message with your rep but you don't have to. I always do though as it is nice to read what people think.

    Everyone has a green blob on their account from the start, even if no rep has yet been given. To see if any has been left for you, click on 'Edit Profile' and then just scroll down to the bottom of the page. :)
