    Question Reputation * next to my posts

    I am curious as to the purpose of the * that shows up next to my posts. When I click on it, it says "This post has not received any reputation. You currently have 0 reputation point(s)".

    Can this be explained a little bit?

    Thanks

    It's a rating system, when turned on people can rate posts in poitive or negative number amounts. That would show you the running total (if enabled).

    ahh..... I assume its not turned on but the icon remains? I thought it might be something along the line of a rating system, but wasn't totally sure. I vote to keep it turned off - if I remember years past, a different forum had issues with a feature like that.

    I'm assuming the function is turned on but permissions are not given to use it. That's why it's showing up.

    I see it on my post. I hope this function isn't enabled... "self moderation" was the downfall of "packing.org"

    The forum is going through some changes. Personally, I don't see anything either for the "rating". We all make our own reputation no matter what's given as a bonus somewhere outside of our real lives. That is what we should continue to seek or build upon.

    As saltysquid stated, it is a feature that is provided for but not used here, nor will it ever be. That feature is basically what killed PDO when it began feeding members' egos....
