    Blue rep box?

    What does the blue box next to a thread on my rep list mean? I'm referring to the list on my Cpanel that shows the rep I've received. Most posts have a little green box next to them, but one has a blue box.

    If you want to give out some rep, hit that blue box. If you want to see if your post got rep, hit the blue box.

    Blue means that that particular post has been nominated for an award.

    Thanks. How is someone nominated? When a post has been nominated, does the poster get to know what they've been nominated for (i.e., which award), or are they kept in the dark? Are the awards on some sort of rolling-deadline, or are they on a fixed timetable? (Sorry for all the questions. I haven't seen anything about the awards or the award process before.)

    Actually, I was just pulling your leg. I have no idea what it means.

    Hilarious.



    I foresee a lot of rep in your future for this one.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    I guess I won't be on the lookout for a major award then...

    There might be awards, but if there are I'm not aware of them.

    I believe the blue rep means it was given with someone with too few rep points, so their rep gave you no increase in rep.

    That would make sense. The user's rep bar only had a few squares in it.
