Unanswered: Confused about Green Boxes? Come HERE!
For those of you who don't remember -- or weren't here for -- these GREEN squares under everyone's usernames, they are Reputation Boxes.
They are pretty much just a showing of how many reputation points someone has. Just like the post stars. They were taken away awhile ago because they were being misused. They were turned into a competition, people judged others based on how many boxes they have, and people began begging for rep.
I am very happy that they are back. I would like to remind everyone not to misuse them. Don't turn them into a competition, and don't beg for reputation points.
Not sure what reputation is? Here is what the FAQ says:
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 (15) most recent additions by clicking "UserCP" at the top of the forum. It will bring up a list of the last 15 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(They just added it back...) 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.
Remember -- it IS okay to give rep. What is NOT okay is to beg for reputation, or offer it to encourage people to visit your threads.
