    Reputation levels

    I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere, but my searches didn't turn up anything...

    When you mouse-over the reputation bars there are various phrases that appear, such as "diamond in the rough", "just really nice", "reputation beyond repute", etc. What is the hierarchy of these text-based reputation descriptions? I ask because I've seen my mouse-over text change without any change in the green bar.

    Speaking of the green bar, is there a difference between the bright and dark green boxes?

    Thanks!

    Re: Reputation levels

    I tried looking this up, and either it is something set up behind the scenes by vbulletin, or I don't have the proper permissions to access the list, because I was unable to locate anything. Sorry. I'll keep trying and let you know if I find anything.

    Sorry for being a thread necromancer, but I was curious about this myself today and dug up the vBulletin manual pages concerning reputation:

    Re: Reputation levels

    Though I think our reputation levels have been modified somewhat, since I have 1762 rep points and the documention states that "...is a name known to all" is 550-650.

    Re: Reputation levels

    OK, since ALSWelk found the deal with the rep, I think we all have to rep him until he reaches the next level to discover the secret decoder ring codes....ah, that's too much like work.

    I'll rep him just for the discovery of all things hidden.

    Now, what is up with the green bars thingy?

    Re: Reputation levels

    Low and behold, I have solved the green bar mystery of mysteries! It's called "User Ranks".

    Here's the deal:
    Basically, CF decided on what images to use for ranking a user and chose green bars. I'm guessing the bright green are your ranking - red was negative rep and the total number of green bars of 11 is the max rep you can get.

    This is measuring how important you are to CF.com based on whatever formula matrix they've set up.

    As in "My amp goes to 11." from Spinal Tap the movie.

    See here:

    It's kinda frightening that every single poster in this post has the same number of green bars at 5, don't ya think?

    I agree, I think the green bar needs to be modified too. It is disbursing that someone with less than 2k rep points has just as many bars as I do.

    Disbursing? Perhaps you are losing points for strange use of the English language.

    Re: Reputation levels

    From looking at a few posts including ones with Williams in them, 5 bright green bars with 11 total bars seems to be the max setting or pretty close to it.

    Probably also has "stacking" turned on.

    So anyone with 11 bars showing and 5 bright green has been around and contributing to the community in a way that is valuable to CF and the community.

    The saying gives you an idea about how much rep they have overall.

    That's the deal.

    So we're all in the "My Marshall amp goes to 11" club.

    So turn it up to 11.
