I have a couple questions about the Reputation System in the forums that the FAQ didn't answer.

1. How does one go from a "Junior Member", to a regular "Member"?
-is it only by people clicking ADD REP pylon-icon, or is it based on number of forum posts? How many does it take?

2. What are all the possible ratings?
-ie. JACKED UP AND GOOD TO GO, and LITTLE MORE THAN CANNON FODDER?

3. How many positive ratigns does it take to move from one title to another?

I can only answer Number 1 for you. The membership status is dependent on the number of posts you make. Once you get a certain threshold (200?) you jump up to "Member".

1)Reputation and Titles are unrelated to each other. As Turalyon said, your title depends on post count.

2)Reputation phrases found are:

40< One of the Best Starfighters in the fleet
30< Has dealt terrible terrible damage
20< Is a 2 hp Banshee with 50 kills
10< Has begun on the path of ascension
0< Jacked up and ready to go
0 = little more than cannon fodder

3)Your reputation phrase will change every 10 rep points

Unfortunately it's not only about whoring around :p Members need to understand that reputation exists and use it to show other members they like their content. So, +rep people when you laugh, feel amazed or mind blown by their posts.

Oh I see, so I just +repped all of you for answering my question. Am I doing it right? : ^)

Also, is there titles for below neutral (a red square instead of the neutral white, or good green)?

Back at you with the rep! :)

And yes there was some "red" ones floating around some time ago. I recall one "dustinbrowder" being quite attracted to negative rep....

IIRC a negative rep phrase was:

Has lost the path but may find it again

Edit: Actually, there is a self-defence protocol for the forum against rep spam. You need to add rep to more people before you can upvote a person again. I've been crazy on this because I can't add enought rep to Robear :P

This is why we've been so careful about the rep system. There was a large internal discussion about whether it would be useful to have such a system, and if it was useful, how useful.

So what are your thoughts? Is there much of a point?

Eh, I think its fine. It's nearly invisible, wouldn't have even known it was there if nobody told me.

I don't know if I should be allowed to share my thoughts on this matter. I'm little more than cannon fodder.

How else will everyone know how utterly insiginificant they are in the presence of my greatness?

In all seriousness, I think it serves a purpose. Maybe not so much as a gauge of how useful a poster is, but certainly in terms of giving it. I feel a bit better giving rep than just saying. "So true!"

I enjoy the system. I can tell you it has caused me to post more. I've created and partcipated in more dicusssion because I didn't like the label of Junior. I have been with you guys for some time, and I'm glad that I have been motivated to post more. It helps me enjoy this community.

It also is helpful for showing who should be taken seriously, and who should be disregarded as a person with poor ideas and often behaves foolishly.

It isn't widely used unfortunatley.

But downvoing two people who are having a flame war in almost every thread, might help to deter such behavior.

Found a small problem I don't like. I gave someonepositeve rep a while ago, and now I want to give him negative rep. It wont let me giveit to him saying i Need to spread the rep around more - doing this before seeing if I wanted to give him postive or negative rep. Me no likes.
