We have enabled the forum Reputation Feature.
This allows posters to a means to thank other users for their posts. As a user receives thanks, in the form of reputation points, the green bar under their name will advance.
You use the Reputation feature by clicking on the small Thumbs-Up button next to the Report Post button.
When you click on the Thumbs-Up Reputation button on someone else's post, it will bring up a pop up where you can approve or disapprove of the post and leave a note. When you approve, it grants some Reputation to that user. If you disapprove, it subtracts some reputation from that user.
Comments are only viewable by the Administration and by the poster receiving the Reputation. Abuse of the Reputation feature will result in action being taken on the posters forum and game account.
If you click on the Thumbs-Up Reputation button on one of your posts, you can see any notes left and what your current Reputation is.
You can also view the latest changes to your reputation from your user control panel (click "Settings" in the upper right from the full version of the forums) http://www.spacetimestudios.com/usercp.php
