    Why do I have 16 "Reputation Points"??

    Where did they come from? And how do I now if any are either good or bad points?

    People gave them to you.

    You can check if they're good or bad; it's a little bit of trouble to do so however. Most of the time you can tell just by the comment left. Have you checked your User CP?

    I went into the CP today to edit my isgnature. And then I saw this information bar that read:


    16 point(s) total Latest Reputation Received

    And there's nothing "clickable" on it (just the "colllapse" button on the far right).

    So how do I check my points? And where do I read the comments?

    ::EDIT::


    Oh! wait! I get it now!! There are six of my postings listed below the score. All six postings must be the collective source of the points! Okay. I get it.

    (Never mind!)


    ::EDIT::

    And they're all positive!

    I think I see another Rep Point addict in our future.

    Oh yeah? I'm waiting for my euphoria to wear off from your last rep.
