Reputation Points
I recently had a question that asked "What are reputation points and what do they do for me?" Click the answer tab above to view more about the reputation points.
Answer:
When you do something that's very helpful, provide useful and accurate info, or make a good selling transaction on our forum the other members can give you "rep points" that add to your credibility. Similarly you can give other forum members reputation points for their notable efforts.

However, just because someone may have several rep points doesn't mean that the advice they give is gospel. It's a very good practice to check and verify all information that is provided against several sources.

Reputation points are shown a few rows under your screen name whenever you make a post. You can click on the number and it will show who gave you the points and the reason given.

          The problem with reputation points and the rewards listed below them is
          some newcomers may actually think we know what we are talking about.
          Any advice that member gives must be gospel.

            True. I've seen rep points given for incorrect advice. Maybe we should leave each other negative reputation points to bring balance to the force.

            I updated the answer with a word of caution to shed some light on this concern. Thanks for the input Mike.
