    Official Reputation Explanation Sticky *Updated June 08"

    Reputation System Introduction

    vBulletin's user reputation system provides a way of rating users based on the quality of their posts. Users on the forums can add reputation points from other users by clicking the reputation link in their posts.

    User reputations allow the users in your community to tell vBulletin which users are quality and which users are not. And in response to user feedback, vBulletin has the ability to label and reward users for the quality of their posts, as is indicated by their reputation.

    Your Reputation points total is displayed in your UserCp.

    Reputation Power

    Your Reputation Power is the number of points you give when you rep someone else, and is calculated as follows;

    Your Reputation Power is;

    • One point for every 600 posts you have made.
    • One point for every 400 points of reputation you have.
    • One point for each 50 days you have been a member.

    For a rep to count you must have at least 10 points, and have made at least 10 posts.

    You can give a maximum of 3 reputation "hits" per 24 hour period, and must rep at least 10 different people before you can rep the same person again (Administrators are exempt from these two limits).

    A number oflight blue & dark blue pips are used to show other users your reputation level. The first 3 pips are light blue, the next 3 are dark blue then the next 3 are gold and then finally 1 purple = 3 light blue + 3 dark blue + 3 gold.

    Giving Rep

    The colored pips you see below avatars are part of a feature on the forums that allows you to rate members for their posts. Everyone starts off with 10 reputation points by default, and then other members can add to or subtract from your points by clicking the reputation icon shown in your posts. To see how many points you have, and also any comments people have left, check your User CP. If you haven't had any ratings yet, nothing will be shown, but if you have you'll see icons like these:

    The amount of points you give or take from a member when rating them is known as your "reputation-altering power."

    Finally, your reputation has no effect on your activities on the forums, so don't take it seriously.

    Rating Pip Points Breakdown

    Each pip in it's color group has a set value.

    0-49 - 1 Light Blue pip
    50-99 - 2 Light Blue pips
    100-149 - 3 Light Blue pips
    150-399 - 3 Light Blue pips + 1 Dark Blue pip
    400-649 - 3 Light Blue pips + 2 Dark Blue pips
    650-899 - 3 Light Blue pips + 3 Dark Blue pips
    900-1399 - 3 Light Blue pips + 3 Dark Blue pips + 1 Gold pip
    1400-1899 - 3 Light Blue pips + 3 Dark Blue pips + 2 Gold pips
    1900-2399 - 3 Light Blue pips + 3 Dark Blue pips + 3 Gold pips
    2400 - 1 Purple pip
    The ranks work as follows:

    3 Light Blue pips: 50 rep each
    3 Dark Blue pips: 250 rep each
    3 Gold Pips: 500 rep each

    A Purple commendation pip means = all 9 pips unlocked (or 2400 rep)

    Where exactly in the userCP does it show this?

    • 0 - User is an unknown quantity at this point
    • 100 - 2 dk green blips
    • 10 - User is on a distinguished road
    • 50 - User will become famous soon enough
    • 150 - User has a spectacular aura about

    Also whats with going from 0 to 100 then back to 10 50 and so on?

    Hmmm... Not the simplest idea. But this can help in choosing future Mods and SMC by post quality.

    Still not too sure though =P

    I really like this idea of reputation. Everyone should be able to see how many reputation points each member has. Is that possible?

    Well you can sort of tell by holding your mouse over the green square under their username, it says their "title" and you can come to this post and see about how many they have lol! Kind of complicated I think :P

    I get it, so Reputation points really has nothing to do with reputation power.

    Rep points advance you in that little green pip thing and shows how good a poster you are while the Reputation power is more along the lines of how how you have been around.

    The concept is pretty cool.

    Also, it seems that being part of a public group (mod, SMC DS) gives you one Reputation power too...

    I think its a good idea to a point. I would never do this and hopefully no one else would, but if someone has a grudge or just wants to be immature, they could rate other users badly. Or if users show favoritism towards others, it'll be unfair to the other users.

    Don't mean to be negative, just something I thought of.

    Mods and Admins could probably give your rep points back if you tell them someone did it for revenge, etc.

    That would be hard to do. How would you know which user rated you?

    I think the adminCP has a log for these type of things, if not then, that kind of sucks

    Yeah true. That's why I think it should say what member + or - reps you.

    Well just try not to have people hold a grudge towards you, either way its fair, if you did something to them I guess its fair? >>; and if people like you then its fair again?

    I'm not worried about it at all, just thought it was worth mentioning. Like you said, they probably already thought of this.

    Edit: So you only see a reputation is someone has rated you? (There's nothing on my CP)

    EDIT: O wait, I DO have points I never noticed that... cool

    But still nothing is showing up under my user cp...

    Apparently, you (razorblade) are on a distinguished road!

    (You can only see your own phrase thing in your user profile.)

    I have a question: I currently have 6 reputation things in my user CP, yet only one of them counts, and that one gave me... 10 Rep. points. Does that mean that 5 of them were given to me by users with posts under 1000 (which means they have no rep. power)?
