How are the User Stars and Bars determined?
Webkinz get this color star:


Gifted users get this color star:


Gift Gurus get this color star:


WIki SysOps get this bar:


Gift Coaches get this bar:


Moderators get this bar:


Global Moderators get this bar:


Administrators get this bar:


Founders get this bar:


The number of stars is determined by the number of posts. We've changed it because people had ALOT of posts and nowhere to go up, so this is how it works:

Webkinz (the others have same post count requirements, just different star colors)
10 - 99 posts :
100-499 posts :
500-999 posts :
1000-1999 posts :
2000-4999 posts :
5000-9999 posts :

Once a user reaches 10,000 posts, they start receiving "spinny stars" for their post count:
Each single-colored spinny star (there are gold, green and purple) represents 10,000 posts --
Each rainbow-colored spinny star represents 50,000 posts --

ALL ABOUT Reputation!
Giving Reputation
There is a thumb icon right next to the "Reputation" area on each user's post bit.

To add to a person's ‘Reputation’, click on the thumbs up icon. A ‘Reputation’ text area will open and you can type your reason for thanking the user.


If you're helpful on the forum, we're sure you'll get them very shortly if you don't already have them! Don't forget to give them out!!


Checking who added to your reputation
You can check your (10) most recent additions by clicking "UserCP" at the top of the forum. It will bring up a list of the last 10 people that have contributed to your reputation.

I don't have any, can you give me some?
We don't allow begging of any kind here on WI, and that includes begging for Reputation. We've already taken the system away to change it because of constant begging and we don't want to have to remove it altogether. Spend some time here, help a few people out and people will give them to you on their own accord.

Can I offer Reputation to encourage people to answer my threads?
NO. We've seen a lot of this and the problem comes when someone forgets to give those promised reputation and people start posting "Why didn't you give me the reputation?" or ask us why someone didn't follow through. People will answer your thread, faster than you even imagined. If you get an answer that helps, feel free to give them reputation, but no offers anymore, PLEASE! Also, no "I only need x more reputation, please help me" threads. Any threads or posts the offer/beg for reputation will be deleted.
